    I have the same problem, the instructions do not tell you how to put the remote in pairing mode, and when the ps3 scans it does not find the remote, I tried new batteries.

    New bluetooth remote. Will not pair. System scans forever. Tried all solutions on this board, including reboot with batteries out, placing remote on PS3 after reinstall of batteries.

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.

WIth the PS3 updates, there is now an option for Registering a BD Remote that is separate from registering a Bluetooth accessory. Much easier!!

Like sirtwinx2 said.. There is an option under settings, accessory settings, and register bd remote control. The directions from the ps3 ask you to hold down the start and enter button on the bd remote control to register it. I tried doing this several times while holding it for several minutes each time with no success. It wasn't until I took out the bd remote batteries, turned the ps3 off, turned the ps3 on, went straight to settings, accessory settings, register bd remote control, put the batteries back in, and held down the start and enter buttons. I had to do that twice, but it did finally register. Thank you sirtwinx2!

It is telling me to pair my remote, what do I do?

If you already have a working remote, just cancel pairing. If your trying to pair an additional remote for game-playing, or "Remote-wars" just follow the on-screen instructions for pairing. Make sure you have fresh batteries in your new remote, and keep it within aproximately six feet while pairing.

Jam2 speaker will not go into pairing mode so i can pair it with my ipad2

On my Jam2, pushing and holding the play button puts the device into pairing mode. Nothing in the instructions suggests this, but it definitely works. You'll know it's gone into pairing mode when the blue indicator light begins flashing quickly.

I go to set up my wireless headset with my playstation 3 but it won't pick up any devices.

You must put both the PS3 and the Backbeat into pairing mode. See your instruction manual for the PS3 for pairing. Once you have both devices searching for each other they should pair right up.

Instructions for putting the Backbeat 903 in pairing mode:

With the headphones powered off, press and hold the Power/Pairing button until the LED indicator flashes blue and red.
Use the PS3's menu to search for the Bluetooth headphones and select 9xxBackBeat.
If prompted, enter 0000 for the PIN code/passkey.

Here is a link for the User's Guide:

Good luck from Headsets Direct!

    How do you turn the bluetooth on on a ps3 cause i cant get my bluetooth headset to pair

    Turn on your Playstation 3, and from the main menu go to Settings - Accessory Settings - Register Bluetooth Device
    You will be presented with two options:
    Register BD Remote Control
    Register Headset/Microphone/Headphones

    Select Register Headset... and put your Bluetooth headset into pairing mode. On your PS3 select Start Scanning
    Select your device and enter your pairing code. In most cases for audio devices the default pairing code is "0000"
    Now on your PS3, go to Audio Device Settings and change your "Input Device" and "Output Device" to your Bluetooth headset name. Try speaking and watch your "Mic Level" move!

    This might help you as well:)

    I can't get Jabra BT 2050 bluetooth into pairing mode. I follow the instructions but never get the solid light. What can I do?

    Booklet instructions for how to pair it with a new device are wrong. It tells you holding the power button will put it into pairing mode but it does not.
    Pairing mode is done by turning off the ear piece, then holding both power and answer/hangup at the same time. The LED should flash fast 3 or 4 times and then stay on solid. You might need to hold just power till the very first flash THEN begin holding answer/hangup as well as power till the LED goes constant. I’ve also had luck when frustrated by just holding all 4 buttons at once.

    I a playstation 3 Blue-ray disc remote control which wont pair

    Go to Accessory settings in the PS3 Settings menu,which will have you register/sync the BD controller with the system. Follow the onscreen instructions &it will give the controller a #. Remember that any universal remote wont has to be the Sony PS3 remote, as they use bluetooth technology instead of the usual infrared.
