Instructions for sony bd remote control

You can also plug in your Keyboard/mouse (any usb type keyboard and/or mouse will work with a PlayStation 3). That will allow you to navigate the PS3 XMB Menu, as follows:
1) Prepare the BD Controller.
2) Go to: (Settings) > (Accessory Settings)...
3) Select [Register BD Remote Control].
4) Follow the on-screen instructions to register the BD remote control.
When the registration, or pairing, is complete, your system will assign a controller number to the remote.

  • You can register only one BD remote control at a time. If you register another BD remote control, you will overwrite information on the currently registered device.
  • After you reach the maximum of seven active wireless controllers, you cannot register or use a BD remote control.
  • Registering the BD remote control with another PS3 system will clear the device registration from the first PS3 system.
  • For details on the BD remote control, refer to the instructions supplied with the remote.

Problems to register (pair) the BD Remote Control PS3... I press START + ENTER but not recognize... :-(

Be sure to only press enter and start. I was accidentally pressing the direction ring that surounds the enter key. This was preventing the pairing from working. You must press the enter key with your finger nail.

I a playstation 3 Blue-ray disc remote control which wont pair

Go to Accessory settings in the PS3 Settings menu,which will have you register/sync the BD controller with the system. Follow the onscreen instructions &it will give the controller a #. Remember that any universal remote wont has to be the Sony PS3 remote, as they use bluetooth technology instead of the usual infrared.

BD/Playstation remote will not work.

I had the same problem.  
1) Go to Accessory Settings\Manage Bluetooth Devices
-it will tell you that your BD device is not registered-press enter to register. The screen will say scanning.
2) Go back to Accessory Settings\Register BD Device and press "Enter & Start" at the same time.

I hope this helps. It worked for me.

Play station 3 dvd remote pairing instructions.

OK I FIGURED IT OUT!!! First turn off the system(ps3) make sure that you take the batteries out of the remote. Then when you turn it back on go straight to system setting, setting accessories, setting blue tooth device. AND THEN IT WILL TELL YOU TO HOLD DOWN THE START AND ENTER BUTTON DOWN!. Don't forget to put the batteries back into the remote. It took like 3 seconds.
