Hi Jfalker, first of all check if you have latest PS3 firmware update and of course if the batteries didn't run out of charge. Then switch on PS3 and HOLD down "START" and "ENTER" buttons on the remote for about 15 seconds, it should pair with your console. If it doesn't work at the first attempt, just try few more times. If it won't work still, please reply to me and I'll get back to you again. Regards, Peter

Instructions for sony bd remote control


You can also plug in your Keyboard/mouse (any usb type keyboard and/or mouse will work with a PlayStation 3). That will allow you to navigate the PS3 XMB Menu, as follows:
1) Prepare the BD Controller.
2) Go to: (Settings) > (Accessory Settings)...
3) Select [Register BD Remote Control].
4) Follow the on-screen instructions to register the BD remote control.
When the registration, or pairing, is complete, your system will assign a controller number to the remote.

Hints
  • You can register only one BD remote control at a time. If you register another BD remote control, you will overwrite information on the currently registered device.
  • After you reach the maximum of seven active wireless controllers, you cannot register or use a BD remote control.
  • Registering the BD remote control with another PS3 system will clear the device registration from the first PS3 system.
  • For details on the BD remote control, refer to the instructions supplied with the remote.

I have a radioshack gamer 15-133 controller and i want to use it on my ps3, how do i?


Hi! Sorry, but this is not possible. The PS3 uses Bluetooth technology for its controllers and remote controls. The Radioshack Gamer Remote 15-133 is an Infrared (IR) device and will only work with specific units that support IR remote controls(PC, Playstation 2/PS2 and XBOX 360.). Click the TECH SPECS tab on this link for more info.
If you are looking for an affordable universal remote that uses both Bluetooth and IR and will control a PS3, there is only one currently available on the market. It is the INTERLINK VP3700 Universal Infrared / Bluetooth Remote Control for PlayStation 3 and it is available at NewEgg.com among other online retailers. Here is the link for it for more information and to order it. Please note, if you click the Feedback tab, the first review written by TV-Tastic, is my review of it. I have had three of these (the first two destroyed by my then one, now two year-old son who chews rubber buttons off everything) and it is a fantastic remote control especially for the money.

The only other Universal Remote option you have is to purchase a Logitech Harmony Remote Control (minimum $75.00) and the additional Logitech PS3 Adapter for the Harmony Remote controls ($45.00) which involves complicated setup and extra piece of equipment for about $115.00.
Good luck.

Problems to register (pair) the BD Remote Control PS3... I press START + ENTER but not recognize... :-(


Be sure to only press enter and start. I was accidentally pressing the direction ring that surounds the enter key. This was preventing the pairing from working. You must press the enter key with your finger nail.

Play station 3 dvd remote pairing instructions.


OK I FIGURED IT OUT!!! First turn off the system(ps3) make sure that you take the batteries out of the remote. Then when you turn it back on go straight to system setting, setting accessories, setting blue tooth device. AND THEN IT WILL TELL YOU TO HOLD DOWN THE START AND ENTER BUTTON DOWN!. Don't forget to put the batteries back into the remote. It took like 3 seconds.
