Okay i have the mad catz 8806 mic it flashes red and blue and charges fine but i cant talk into it and cant hear anyone through it at all it beeps and i hear that.


If the headset you have is the Item No. 8860 in order to use it you have to pair it.
If you are using it on a PS3 then be sure that you have selected the headset in the PlayStation's settings.

Pairing is a process of associating Bluetooth devices with each other. It will establish a permanent security link between the devices and enable quick access to the services provided without the need to re-enter Pass Keys. You will only need to pair your PS3 and the Headset once.

Paired devices remain paired even when:
-One of the devices is powered off.
-A service connection is interrupted or stopped.
-One or both devices are restarted.

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"

.

Troubleshooting



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. ***


Hope it helps

Need set-up Information for Blue Tooth phone in Chrysler Pacifia 2005


I found the link below containing a download of the .pdf file and also pasted the phone pairing portion below it. These instructions are exactly the same as when pairing to my system in my '08 Caliber,so they're probably universal. Keep in mind, though, that the system just may not be fully compatible with your phone. EVERYTHING that Chrysler makes is EXTREMELY finicky-and you may be doing everything right! Before you begin, set your phone into its pairing or "find me" mode, then press the UConnect button. I hope this helps! Good luck.
http://dcxtraining1.com/dcxtraining1/docs/ExperienceFreedom_UConnect.pdf

Linking to UConnect – Required for First-time Use of Each Mobile Phone
To complete the pairing process, the mobile-phone owner’s manual will need to be referenced. One of the following vehicle-specific Web sites will also provide detailed instructions for pairing with the phone: www.chrysler.com/uconnect, www.dodge.com/uconnect and www.jeep.com/uconnect.
• Press the Phone icon button to begin
• After the Ready prompt and subsequent beep, say Set Up Phone Pairing
• When prompted, after the voice or beep, say Pair a Phone
• You will be asked to say a four-digit PIN that will be needed later to enter into your mobile phone. You can use any four-digit PIN. You will not need to remember the PIN after the initial pairing process
• For identification purposes, you will be prompted to give the UConnect system a name for your mobile phone. Each mobile phone that is being paired should be given a unique phone name
• You then will be asked to give your mobile phone a priority level between one and seven, one being highest priority. The priority allows the UConnect system to know which mobile phone to use if multiple mobile phones are in the vehicle at the same time
Making a Phone Call
• Press the Phone icon button to begin
• After the Ready prompt, say Dial
• The system will prompt you to say the number you wish to dial
Making a Phone Call Using Your UConnect Phonebook
• Press the Phone icon button to begin
• After the Ready prompt, say Call followed by the name and designation of a phonebook entry you wish to dial – for example Call, then John Doe, then Work
Terminating a Phone Call
To end a call in progress, press the Phone icon button. All calls in progress will
be terminated.
Phone Redial
• Press the Phone icon button to begin
• After the Ready prompt, say Redial
• The UConnect system will call the last number that was dialed on your mobile phone. This may not be the last number dialed by the UConnect system
Answering or Rejecting an Incoming Call - No Call Currently in Progress
When you receive a call on your mobile phone, the UConnect system will interrupt the stereo audio to ask if you would like to answer the call. Press the Phone icon button to answer the call. To reject the call, press the Phone icon button until you hear a single beep indicating that the incoming call was rejected.

Apple Iphone wont's communicate with communicate with computer.


Hi,
The iPhone at present cannot be paired with anything other than a Bluetooth headset or some hands-free car systems. You cannot sync to a computer via Bluetooth, even though they may recognize each other as existing.
Not to be argumentative, but there is nothing you can do with your iPhone and MacBook Pro, as the underlying Bluetooth profiles such as OBEX (or OBject EXchange) Object Push, OBEX File Transfer and DUN (or Dial Up Networking) do not exist on your iPhone.

An iPhone is not intended to be paired with anything other than audio devices as specified in your user guide.

pls rate my suggestion...

Connect trueblue bluetooth headset to Samsung Eternity cell phone


I had the same poroblem. I turned the phone off and then restarted it. That worked for me. Try to make a phone call and see if you can hear it on the Bluetooth.

Also... compliments of Best Buy Troubleshooting -

Bluetooth Troubleshooting: Phones & Headsets

Problem #1:
Headset and phone are turned on, but you don't hear anything in the headset, i.e., there is no dial tone.
Action #1: Make sure your phone is Bluetooth-capable. If it is not: A. Buy a new Bluetooth-capable phone. B. Purchase a Bluetooth adapter for your non-Bluetooth phone. The adapter will allow your phone to interact with a Bluetooth headset.

Problem #2:
It's a Bluetooth-capable phone and Bluetooth headset, both are turned on, but you still don't hear anything.
Action #2: Make sure your phone, headset, and, if necessary, adapter are fully charged before attempting to synch the Bluetooth connection between the two devices - in many cases a blinking blue light will indicate the headset is charged.

Problem #3:
Everything is charged, but still not working.
Action #3:Before two Bluetooth-enabled devices can communicate with each other, they need to be initially synched up to each other - also referred to as linking or pairing.
A. Find "Communications" or "Connections" on your phone's menu screen and explore within to locate "New" or "Bluetooth."
B. Push the main button on the headset until the light shines solid blue and is NOT blinking. C. Select Bluetooth on phone menu. Within Bluetooth you may need to select and highlight "Devices" or "Find Devices" (depending on where you are, there may be other Bluetooth devices available).
D. While the headset light is solid blue, open the Bluetooth link (or Find Devices) on your phone's menu screen and scroll through until you locate the headset you wish to synch up to. Your phone will automatically begin searching for Bluetooth devices within 30 feet of itself.
E. After a short period of time, your menu screen should say "connected" or "devices paired". Make sure you click or select the device name to finalize the connection. If you have successfully paired the two devices, you will hear a dial tone in the headset. Congratulations! You've joined the Bluetooth world.

Note: After a couple of minutes showing solid blue, the light on the headset will start blinking; you want to pair up the phone and headset while the light is still unblinking. This is important. If the light starts blinking before you can complete the connection, you will need to turn the headset off and on and start over.
Problem #4:
You've followed all the instructions in this guide, and your Bluetooth connection is still not functioning properly.
Action #4: Take out your manual and carefully reread the section on synching up Bluetooth devices. If you still can't get things properly connected, we suggest you call the manufacturer regarding this issue.
Motorola: 1-877-MOTO-BLU for troubleshooting, or www.hellomoto.com
Jabra: 1-800-327-2230 from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. EST for technical support; or www.jabra.com

I hope this helps.

NO DIAL TONE


Since an Analog Pana phone uses two pairs, swap phones completely with someone else. If the phone you had works somewhere else and the phone you borrowed does not, it's a wiring issue.
The phones light up because the data to make the display and lights travel on the second (black/yellor or orange) pairs of the jack (pins 2&5). The voice is on the first (pins 3&4) pair.
If the phone is bad, it's bad, but I'm guessing your missing a wire on the red or green lead of the phone jack, either from a bad base cord, or a bad jack.

My Bluetooth interation suddenly stopped working


Many problems related to pairing can be corrected by verifying that the latest firmware is loaded to the GPS unit and the phone. To update the firmware on the GPS, please use the WebUpdater program. To make sure the phone has the latest firmware updates, please contact the phone service provider for more information.
One additional tip is to always pair the phone with the GPS from the phone itself. Do not attempt to pair to the phone from the GPS unit.
