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

Ps3 afterglow bluetooth flashes red and blue and wont let me talk, what do i do?


When the afterglow headset flashes from red to blue, it is in pairing state, youve held the power too long after power-on. Shut it off again and turn it back on and dont hold the power button untill it flashes red to blue. The directions provoded with it aare quite easy to follow. Took me 30 seconds to set mine up

Try to charge it on a USB on the PC, If the red light doesn't stay on, meaning it's charging, then you have a faulty headset and you'll have to contact your retailer to ask for a replacement.

Check your cable for breaks or fraying. It sounds like your mic's cable is broken, and needs to be replaced. Mad catz should send you a replacement under warranty when you call them.

Cant hear out of my headset, but i can be heard


There may be a mute switch.However Mad Catz is not licensed by Sony.The package probably read licensed by Mad Catz which means absolutely nothing.You need Sony brand or one that says licensed by Sony.Off brands almost always cause problems.I used to work on game systems professionally.Good luck and game on!

Buzzing and Echo


How long have you owned this mic? I am a recording engineer, so I have seen any kind of damage to mics you can think of. Headset mics are a little more susceptible to high-volume damage (especially game console mics, usually due to intensity of the game!) I have never dealt with Mad Catz customer support directly, but sadly, in most cases the unit needs to be replaced.
