Some bluetooth headsets have been known to not link up after the playstation has been turned off, or if the power goes out. You may have to redo the linking process again to make it work. Some headsets this has to be done every time the playstation is turned on. Another possible scenario is that the plantronics has on/off and a bypass function when its turned on. If you turn on the headset, try tapping the on button again and see if it links up.

Hope this helps.

Hello, i cannot connect my headset (ASUS HS-1000W) with my playstation 3.i ve check it with my laptop and it connected.the flash light is green but not steady.i ve done all the procedure from the manual


If this is a Bluetooth headset, I have found that not all headsets play nice with the PS3. I had to switch to the Sony PS3 headset to get mine to work consistently.

Hey im getting ps3 code 80010009 When i try and connect my bluetooth headset...What do i do?


1) Make sure your headset is charged

2) Make sure it is OFF. This means there will be no blinking LED light. To turn it ON, hold for one second (like the manual says), it will do a long blink once, then intermittent short flashes to let you know it is on. To turn it OFF, hold for five seconds. It will do another long blink, then it is off and won't flash anymore.

3) Once it is OFF, hold the button for five seconds. This is the only time you turn it ON by pressing for FIVE seconds. The light will then go solid blue (like the manual says), and stay on, not blinking. You are now in discovery mode.

4) Now when you do Scan under the headset part of the menu, you should see something like the name of your headset. If there is anything else listed there, ignore it- that's probably just a cellphone or something else you have lying around in the house.

5) Select the headset and you are good to go.\

Also, the other common causes include that the headset could be paired with another device like a phone so the ps3 is not able to connect to it.
Lastly, if it has a usb port, you can connect your usb to it and then to the ps3. After that, go over the whole process again and it should work perfectly.
Hope this helped you? Please comment for more information

sometimes it is easier just to watch a video!

Here ya go. please remember to leave me a positive rating and a testimonial really helps!!

thank you!

1. CompatibilityThe PS3 supports only one headset at a time. Multiple players on the same console will have to share.
Bluetooth:
  • The PS3 uses Bluetooth version 2.0, and is compatible with all earlier versions (1.0, 1.1, 1.2). 2009 may see version 2.1 Bluetooth headsets hit the market, so you will have to try it for yourself on PS3.
  • All brands of Bluetooth headset should work with the PS3.
USB:
USB (wired) Headsets can also be used with the PS3.
  • Any of the PS2 compatible USB headsets should work with PS3 games.
  • USB headsets are required for PS2 software used on the PS3.
Not Compatible with Bluetooth Stereo Headphones:
  • The Bluetooth audio signal for PS3 only carries voice chat. The game sounds and music are played through your TV or stereo receiver only.
  • If you want to listen to the gameplay with headphones then they will have to be compatible with your TV or stereo receiver.

2. Setup
A Bluetooth headset has to be registered, or "paired", with your PS3 before it can be used.
  • Make sure your Bluetooth headset is fully charged before you begin.
  • Check your headset instructions for entering "pairing mode". Activate your headsets' "pairing mode" so it can be recognized by the PS3.
  • On the Cross Media Bar (or XMB) of the PS3 go to the "Settings" tab, then down into "Accessory Settings", then down into "Manage Bluetooth Devices".
  • With your headset in pairing mode, follow the onscreen instructions and let the PS3 scan for your headset. When your headset is found, follow the prompts and enter a pass key (if necessary- the default is usually 0000 for all brands). The pairing should now be complete.
If you're using a USB (wired) headset, just plug it into one of the ports on the front of the PS3 (the system should auto-detect the USB headset).

Mic Test and Volume Setting
After pairing a Bluetooth headset, or after plugging in a USB (wired) headset, return to the XMB. Go to "Accessory Settings" and choose "Audio Device Settings". You can test your headset here.
  • Your headset should appear as the audio input/output device. If not, just use the D-pad to highlight the Input line, then scroll until you see yours. Any microphone you have used with your PS3 will be listed, but only the current one will be available to select.
  • Set the "Microphone Level" to 3. You can change the level any time if needed.
  • Speak into the headset, and the level bar at the top of the screen should move at the sound of your voice.
You can also view a list of Bluetooth accessories you have registered in the "Manage Bluetooth Devices" tab under "Settings".
If your mic doesn't appear there then try pairing it again.

There are more ways to configure the audio input and output that can be useful:
  • Set the input to (your mic) and leave the output on (default)- one person can chat with the other players, and the replys will play over your TV speakers rather than into your mic. Great when sharing one console because everyone can hear the team talk.
  • Set the input and output to (default)- you will hear the game sound and voice chat through your TV speakers but won't be able to talk back. Great if you don't have a headset, or if you want the room to hear the team chat.
  • Set the output to (default) to use stereo headphones with your TV or receiver. Then set the input to (your mic) and you can chat while wearing stereo headphones. Keeping the mic close to your face could be a problem since both ears are already taken! You could try a USB desktop mic and see if that works.




3. Troubleshooting

General:
If you are having trouble with a headset after it is paired with the PS3, there are a few things to check first:
  • Make sure your headset battery is charged and working. Be aware that some brands/models will need to be paired again after each recharge. It's not a problem, it's just the way those models work.
  • Make sure your controller is charged. Lots of strange things happen when the controllers don't have enough power, like dropouts and headset interference.
  • The headset should be set as the input/output device from the XMB.
  • For Bluetooth users, make sure there are no other Bluetooth devices in use near your PS3. Also try to eliminate any other radio frequency interference if possible.
  • For USB users, make sure the connection is secure and there are no wire breaks.
  • Update your console to the current available firmware.


Pairing Problems:
  • If the PS3 cannot locate your headset, make sure that your headset is in pairing mode before you start scanning. The headset instructions will tell you how to set yours to pairing mode.
  • If your headset is missing from the device menu after you re-start your PS3, you will have to pair again. Many headsets will only "remember" one device at a time, so you may have to register again after using your headset with a phone.
  • If your headset appears on the Audio Device menu but is "grayed out" or not selectable, it is not connected. Make sure the headset is charged, and that it is on in standby. I should connect automatically when the Audio Device menu is selected. Tap the call button on the headset if it does not connect, or click on the Connect Bluetooth tab on screen.
  • Make sure no other Bluetooth devices are in use nearby.

Voice Chat Drops:
  • Most in-game voice chat drops are simply network lag. Usually they go away after a short time, so be patient. In extreme cases you may have to leave a game and return to reset the chat function.
  • If you use wireless internet, a low signal strength to your modem/router can make voice chat malfunction. Make sure your wireless signal is as strong as possible to your access point.
  • Sometimes a headset will quit after changing discs to another game. Go to accessories and select your headset again.
  • Make sure no other Bluetooth devices are in use nearby.

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.

How do i hook my bluetooth to my ps3


After you have connected the headset to the PS3™ system, you can verify that the PS3™ system is receiving voice input from the headset
and that the headset is correctly playing output.
To test and configure your headset
In your PS3™ system’s home menu, go to [Settings] > [Accessory Settings] > [Audio Device Settings].
After you pair a Bluetooth® device with the PS3™ system, the Bluetooth® device becomes the default for both input and output audio. If the
headset is working correctly, you can hear your voice loopback in the headset. The audio input bar will indicate your voice level.
