You have to put headset into pairing mode ...usually by holding power button for a few secs until it flashes blue/red then have the PS3 search and it should find it ..the default password should be 0000 ...check manufact website for full instructions on how to pair if this doesnt help...i would tell you more but would need headset model number

Press the K1 button, the one next to the M of MAD CATZ and hold it down for 8, yes Eight seconds.

I just bought my madcatz headset from the shop. Charged it for 4 hours and the red LED turned off so I suppose it is charged. Then i go to the “Manage Bluetooth® Devices.” and go to the screen where...


The power button is not the right button to press.

Here is the steps I take:

1. Power on the headset
2. Have PS3 scan for new devices
3. Hit the tiny button that is next to the volume buttons on the top of the headset.
4. PS3 should recognize "8860" and ask for a passkey which is "0000" by default
5. Paired and ready to go

How do you get the ps3 to pick up the blue tooth head set


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.

I have a madcatz headset, Well The Headset still working in the ps3, but today when i put it to charge doesnt want to charge anymore, and the USB cable looks perfect, i didnt dmged it or moved it. is weird


Seems you should order another cable from madcatz because your charging cable might of become faulty or you might want to change usb ports on the computer you are using.

My Bluetooth set is plugged in but will not show up to add


Try to put your headset in pairing mode first. Press and hold the K1 button for some 8 seconds, until the indicator led is rapidly flashing alternately in red and blue. Then, make your PC's bluetooth application search for new devices. Your headset should appear. Select it make it connect. If a pairing code (or PIN, or passkey) is requested, enter '0000' (four zeros). The pairing process should be done just once. After any 2 devices are paired, they should connect to each other just by being next to each other (provided their bluetooth radios are turned on, of course). Othewise, a simple press on the button should do.
By the way, if your headset's user guide happens to be missing, feel free to download it from this location.
Hope you are able to sort your problems out.
Regards, Carlos
