20 Most Recent Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console Questions & Answers


The PS3s' DVD and Blu-Ray player is region locked. This means that your Australian PS3 can only play DVD and Blu-Ray movies made for the region Australia is in or are region free (region code 0).

For DVD's, Australia is region code 4.
For Blu-Ray, Australia is region code B or region code 2.

Although this doesn't help your current problem, the PS3 is region free for PS3 games (you can play games from any region).

To work around this, I propose either ripping the DVD to your computer, then burning it onto a different DVD or streaming the DVD directly from your computer to the PS3. Streaming is definitely the better bet if you have more DVD's from another region.

To rip and burn your own copy, use a blank DVD disc and DVD burning/ripping software such as Nero.

To stream to your PS3, check out the following:
PS3 Media Server (my personal favorite) for PC
TVersity for PC
MediaLink for Mac

Enjoy your movie (hopefully)!

Hi the ps3 by far is the best console most of the adverts you see on tv for the xbox are taken from ps3 screen shots as the ps3 has a lot higher quality picture also the ps3 will outlast the xbox by a mile, i repair these for a living and say every 15 xbox 360 i fix in only get say 2 ps3 so the xbox is prone to faults and is not up to the quality of the ps3 and also now ps3 have bought out their move feature which means it has the same ability as the Wii but with 100 times better quality.
such as you could play archery or golf and it looks like real life where as the Wii is more cartoon like.

go for the ps3 you wont regret it trust me.

let me know if you need further assistance ok

plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks

You need to perform a Firmware Update.

Sony Playstation... | Answered on Oct 08, 2018


This is a software compatibility issue, it's easily fixed by connecting the PS3 to the internet, logging into your PSN account and running a system update. It will update the software and get you a new encryption key. It's part of the movie's copy protection.

Once in awhile, the keys just expire. To renew it, go to SYSTEM UPDATE in your PS3s xmb.. 2nd tab over top option..click it and it will ask you to select a method. Update via internet. Go through this you should be good to go.they usually expire after 12-18 mos. Heres a link to the manual..

You'll have to update the system software for your PS3 for it to play blu-ray movies.

You can read about it here:
http://manuals.playstation.net/document/en/ps3/2_60/video/aacs.html

On that page click on where it says "update the system software" and then on the next page it will explain the different ways you can upgrade the software.

Sony Playstation... | Answered on Sep 25, 2018


If your PS3 is connected online it should have the newest update already. In the event it's not. You want to go to sony playstation support.com insert a USB thumbdrive into your computer. Download the newest update, insert thumbdrive into the USB of the PS3 under system settings select install update. It will take a few minutes then your PS3 is up to date.

Hello, unfortunately there are only two ways to perform a system software update. Via internet, or system storage device. I would advise taking it to a friend or relative's if they have wireless internet? Here is instructions on how to set up your wireless internet. On the playstation main menu, go to settings then network settings. Select wireless then select scan, select the access point you wish to use. Then check the SS-ID for the access point, select the security you wish to use. Enter the encryption key and when you have finished this a list off connections will appear. Save your settings, test the connection and confirm the connection test results. Your ready to update the console. Any further questions please feel free to ask. Thanks for using fix ya.

Do you know if your PS3 has been updated to the most current firmware? In your XMB on your ps3 go to settings.. The very top option is system update. Click it and it will ask you to select a method. Update via internet. Go through this you should be good to go. Sometimes the key just has to be renewed, they usually expire 12-18 mos. Heres a link to the manual..

The blueray eye is out. You will need a new blueray player. The only problem with that is the ps3 will only respond with the orginal parts it came with. ( i.e. motherboard blueray player ) So the best bet is to buy a broken blueray player and take the eye out and replace it with yours just the eye not the whole thing.

You will not be able to play some newer disc because of the technology embedded in them. The updates allow for those necessary files to be implemented into your system giving it the ability to play games and blu rays. Get your system updated.

Download the firmware from the playstation official website onto a usb

stick. Follow the instructions on the website at: www.playstation.com (the update will be at the bottom of the page, on the right side.)


Sony Playstation... | Answered on Sep 19, 2018


go to the official playstation website via computer and download update and place update on flash drive.

plug flash drive into PS3 and update.
