Sony PS3 Bluetooth Headset will not turn off.

6 Replies 10,710 Views Created 09-03-2009

My Sony PS3 Headset will not turn off.

 

After using it the other day, after I tried to turn it off, it got set to Discovery Mode instead. Now, every time I hold the power button down for five seconds, it will either:

 

1) Remain in Discovery Mode

2) Exits Discovery Mode, but the power light will still blink

3) Occassionally holding the power button down will cause it to blink 3x in succession to signify it turning off, but it will remain turned on

4) PC will no longer recoqnize the bluetooth

 

Has anyone whom have had this issue know how to fix the problem?

Re: Sony PS3 Bluetooth Headset will not turn off.

Hey Smiley Happy

Just had a look at the troubleshooting part of the manual and see this:
  

"My headset is stuck in pairing mode (power and mic muting indicators flash alternately in green and red) and cannot be powered off. 

 

Pair (register) the headset again with the PS3 system using automatic mode.

 

Hint - Remove the headset from the list of registered devices and then repeat the pairing process."

 

 

 



Hope this helps Smiley Happy

I am having the same problem. I believe it is a short in headset and probably non-fixable.
