To pair your headset, all you have to do it this
Go to the settings tab on the X media bar. Then move down to accessory settings and select "register new bluetooth device" or something like that. Turn the headset on (I recommended charging it at least an hour before hooking it up.) Then select "scan for devises". It should show up on the list. Select it and it will ask you to type in the 4 digit passcode. If this is your first time using it or you have not changed it, it should be "0000". Once it is hooked up go back to the accessory settings and set it as audio input and output device. Now you're ready to use it!
Hope this was helpful?

I cant get my madcatz ps3 controller to turn on. i just purchased it and threw out the intructions by mistake. I plugged in the usb key and get the controller to turn on


If it is wireless you have to either insert some batteries or charge it by USB.

Usually MadCatz controllers have a button to turn them on or just keep the Home button pressed until you see some light on it.

The USB dongle should be blinking and after you turn on the controller it should pair with it and stop blinking.

Hope it helps...

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.

Mine wont turn on


Hello, did you check the battery? Tu get the full charge, the headset red light must stay steady on. If you get it charged you can pair it: hold power button till the two leds blinks, now scan for bluetooth from PS3 and choose your mic setting. Other than that I'd call madcatz technical support. Good luck, Peter_Rei
