Question about Mad Catz PS3 Bluetooth® Headset Wireless Headset
BELIEVE IT OR NOT, SOME HEADSETS ARE NOT COMPATIBLE WITH PS3. I HAD SOME PROBLEMS WITH MY PLANTRONICS 3XXX. I FOUND THE SOLUTION WAS THAT I WASN''T HOLDING DOWN THE BIG BUTTON ON THE FRONT LONG ENOUGH. WHEN I WOULD PRESS THE BUTTON, WHILE PS3 SEARCHED, I WOULD ACCIDENTALLY TURN OFF THE BLUETOOTH.
BE SURE THE BLUETOOTH IS POWERED ON. ONE TAP SHOULD DO.
WHEN PS3 BEGINS TO SEARCH, HOLD DOWN BIG BUTTON, AND DO NOT RELEASE UNTIL PS3 FINDS.
IF THERE IS A LIGHT ON THE BLUETOOTH, IT WILL PROBABLY BLINK A COUPLE TIMES WHEN FOUND. THE NAME OF THE BLUETOOTH WILL ALSO SHOW ON THE TV.
OH YEA, BE SURE TO CHECK YOUR PS3 SETTINGS.MAKE SURE IT IS SET TO ACCEPT BLUETOOTH HEADSET CONNECTION.
