Pairing the Wireless Buzz!™ Buzzers
These Wireless Buzz!™ Buzzers have already been paired with the supplied USB receiver. If a

the USB receiver again.
• Push the POWER/LOCK switch on all four Wireless Buzz!™ Buzzers into the POWER position
and hold it for four seconds, until their blue LED indicators glow continuously. Be sure to
perform this operation within two metres of the PlayStation®2 console or the PLAYSTATION®3
system.
• Press and hold the BIND button on the USB receiver. Its blue LED indicator will glow and flash
once as each Buzz!™ Buzzer successfully pairs.
• As each Buzz!™ Buzzer pairs with the USB receiver, its blue LED indicator and red Buzz!™
button will flash briefly, indicating a successful connection and pairing. To test the connection,
press any button and the blue LED indicator on the Buzz!™ Buzzer and the USB receiver will
flash briefly.
• The USB receiver will pair with a maximum of four Wireless Buzz!™ Buzzers. To play with five to
eight Wireless Buzz!™ Buzzers, a second USB receiver is required.
