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.

Im trying to hook up my mad catz bluetooth to my ps3 and i got it pass the scan part but it keeps saying theres a problem...PLEASE HELP


Is your PS3 seeing the Headset?
Is the headset in pairing mode?

Complete details below on how to connect it:
Pairing the Headset with the PS3

Before the Headset can be used with the PS3, the two devices must be 'paired' so they can communicate with each other. Use a gaming controller for this procedure and ensure that the Headset is powered on (flashing blue LED light) and that it is not being charged via USB cable.

1. Power on your PS3 console.

2. Within the "Settings" menu, press X on "Accessory Settings."

3. Press X on the icon labeled: "Manage Bluetooth® Devices."

4. Scroll down and press X on the icon labeled: "Register New Device."

IMPORTANT: Depending on your model of the 8860 Bluetooth® Headset, your power button is either an oval shape with an icon of a circle with a line going through it (5a) or it is a button with a phone icon (5b). Please follow the appropriate next step depending on your model of the 8860.

5a. Once at the next screen, prepare the Headset to be paired with the PS3 by holding down the K1 button until the LED flashes Blue and Red (hold K1 approx 12 seconds).

5b. Once at the next screen, prepare the Headset to be paired with the PS3 by tapping the pairing button located next to the volume controls on the side until the LED flashes BOTH Blue and Red.

6. Once the Headset's LED indicator is alternately flashing Blue and Red (indicating the Headset is ready to be paired), press X on "Start Scanning."

7. Once Scan is complete, the PS3 will recognize all Bluetooth devices within range.

8. Locate "8860" from the list of available devices and press X on its icon to be prompted for a Pass Key

9. Enter 0000 (four zeros) as the Pass Key and press X on OK

10. You should then be taken to a new screen stating: "Register completed"

.

Trouble Shooting



Q. The PS3 is unable find the Headset.
A. If the Headset has been paired with another Bluetooth device, the PS3 will have trouble finding the Headset. Either remove the Headset from the paired device or turn off the Bluetooth power on the paired device.

Q. The Headset cannot be activated after being charged for 20 minutes.
A. To activate the Headset, the battery needs to charge for at least 40 minutes. It is highly recommended to fully charge the battery before use.

Q. No indication of charging is shown.
A. If the Headset battery is empty or has not been used for a long time, it may take some time for the Headset LED indicator to show charging status with a steady Red light. Make sure the PLAYSTATION 3 is turned on. The 8860 cannot charge without the console being turned on.

Q. No sound can be heard from the Headset.
A. Please make sure of the following:

-Make sure that the two devices have been paired.
-Make sure that the Headset is turned on.
-Make sure that the two paired devices are within 30 Ft. (9.15 meters) of each other.

*** Do not try to pair the headset to the PLAYSTATION 3 when the headset is attached to the USB cable. If it is attached to the USB cable when trying to pair up, it won't pair with the PLAYSTATION 3. ***

HOW DO I PAIR MY PS3 AND JABRA?


Make sure the headset is off and there are no flashing lights. On ps3 go to settings and look around cuz i cant remeber were it is at but look for manage devises or manage blue tooth devices something like that. You will select that and it will ask you if you want to search for devices. WAIT! First you need to put your headset in pairing mode. Hold down the side button (the one that flashes blue when it is on) and you will see it turn on and flash. DO NOT LET GO OF THE BUTTON!! KEEP IT HELD DOWN UNTIL THE LIGHT STAYS BLUE, NO FLASHING. you are now in pairing mode! Select search for bluetooth devices on your ps3 and it will begin scanning. keep your headset close to your ps3. When your ps3 finds it, it will ask for a code. Enter 0000. Thats it! ENJOY!

Pairing my headset to the PS3


Ok people, here is how it is done- Turn off your bluetooth. When it is off, press and hold the main button (power button) until it flashes(keep holding even after it flashes). The light on the device should turn solid blue (instead of flashing) now you can let go of the power button. My device was picked up immediately... after 2 hours of trying to figure it out of course, lol. Hope it works for y'all!

~Live long and prosper ;)

Ps3 bluetooth headset


You need to "pair" the headset to the PS3. Follow the instructions for your headset (usually holding down the power button until you get a SOLID blue light) then go to Settings>Accesory Settings>Register BlueTooth Device>Scan. When you're done, you need to set your input device to your Headset model #, which should now appear.

Linking a BT125 Bluetooth to my PS3


I had the same problem trying to connect my old Jabra BT125 headset to my brothers PS3, here's what worked for me:

-Turn on the headset by holding down the button but keeping it down until a solid light comes on.

This puts the headset into discovery mode, you can the start scanning for the device and it should find it.

Step2: Perfrom device scan from the PS3 in this case.
Step3: Confirm Motorola HS820 in the list discovered by ps3 and confirm.

Connecting bluetooth headset to ps3


You have to do 2 things in order to use a bluetooth headset on your ps3. First you have to pair it with the ps3. To do this you go to your setting and register the bluetooth device. Make sure your bluetooth device is in pairing mode when you do this. On most headsets you can simply hold down the button until the light comes on a solid color. once it is in pairing mode you will have to scan for new devices. Once this is done you should see the headset on the list. Choose it and enter your pairing code. If you have not set one it will most likely be 0000. Once it is it paired you will have to change your audio output and input. Go to audio device settings and change the input and output device to your headset name. Enjoy!
