PS3 Bluetooth® Headset Wireless Headset: i need a pass key for my bluetooth headset model #...

First try '0000' (four zeros). If it doesn't work, switch to '1234'. It it keeps failing, try '8888'.
Hope one of these codes might suit your case.
Cheers! Carlos

Lost charger who can I call?

The nice thing about the ps3 is it can charge the bluetooth from the charge cord for the controllers. Just plug the bluetooth into the charging wire from the ps3 and the bluetooth will charge.

Cannot connect my headset to

Hi,
check all the settings that you have on the PS3 make sure that you did not miss out anything that you had before from what you will be having right now, also try to reset you Headset if it is possible, maybe you need to try and have the setting reset on the headset as well since it was synced to your Old PS3 right.
Have a nice day.

Bought mad catz wireless usb

Hello,
It can be deduced from your problem that the bluetooth headset you purchased is mal-functioning as a result of the fact that it has a factory default,since you havn't even used it for once before the problem occured.
The only solution is to take it back to the point of purchase to get a replacement,because if you try to fix it now you'll void the warranty that came with it.

Thanks and have a nice day.

Try to delete the headset from your bluettoth devices list on the PS3. Turn off the PS3 and then back on. Re-Pair your headset and see if you have the same error.

I am unable to sync

Please see the sync details below:

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"
