PS3 Official Bluetooth Headset Error Code 80121607

[ Edited ]
17 replies 9702 views Edited Jan 7, 2017

I am unable to pair my newly purchased headset to my ps3. Every time I try automatic mode i get error code 80121607. If i try bluetooth discovery mode it just says scanning.

 

Any advice? 

 

Thanks.

Ok, i know the box and everyone else will say this, but make sure there are NO bluetooth compatible devices ANYWHERE near that headset. Make sure there is no other device that could be paired with 50 feet. When I tried to pair mine to the PS3, the headset accidentally connected to my cell phone all the way in my car, and that caused the PS3 to not recognize it.


This is why we can't have nice things

go into safe mode/recovery/secret menu whatever it is you call it if you dont know just google/youtube it and when that is up make sure your headset is connected by usb it wil automatically register...thats how i got it to work...you need not press anything once there but it wouldnt hurt to do a rebuilding of your database...its the same as defrag on your pc just organizes your hard drive and makes your ps3 as fast as when you got it...if you have an ssd this isnt necassary...but yes just go to the safe mode and it will register the headset

If you simply sync the headset through traditional bluetooth discovery, you will not be able to use the notification feature.

You must pair the headset through the USB cable.
