Question about Insignia Televison & Video
The reason you are receiving a "region B error" is because the Blue-ray you are attempting to play is not designated to work with the current drive you have. The regions (A-B-C) were designed so that certain DVD's would only work in certain countries. For instance - Region B DVD's were made to only work in Africa, Europe, Oceania, Middle East, Kingdom of the Netherlands, GB, French territories, and Greenland. Manufacturers did this so that they are able to control what content is released per country.
If you are using Windows XP or Windows Vista, you can use power DVD to correct this problem by editing the registry keys.
After installing PowerDVD, the program will initiate the default value of Region A and 5 remaining changes, and there is not settings in the registry. When region code changed, PowerDVD stores rgion information at this registry key in Windows XP:
The value can be 1 for Region A, 2 for Region B, 4 for Region C.
There is another registry key that stores the number of remaining changes to region code allowed:
Every time you change region in PowerDVD, this number is decremented by 1.
Thus, to hack PowerDVD region code control in Windows Vista, you can either change the region code directly from the registry, or the value of remaining times left allowed to change region code can be set sky high (such as 65,536 times) so that you can change the region code without limitation.
You can use a registry export file to automate the process. Download the BDregion.zip archive file with BDregionA.reg (to set to region A), BDregionB.reg (to set to region B), BDregionC.reg (to set to Region C) and BDregionNoLimit.reg (to set number of times left for region change to FFFF or 64k times).

this has happen to me!! and i end up buying another ps3 and it end up the same!!! i fix both of them!!! and about over 200 consols with the same problem!!! this is what u do! you connect your control direct to your ps3. and then you hold the power button for 5 seconds!! the system will turn on!!!remove your finger for a second and hold the power button till you hear 2beeps then remove your finger and the system will shut off!! this is a manuel reset!!! the system will turn back on!! asking u to connect your controller!! you already have it connected. then it will give you about 6 options!! you will choose RESTORE FILES!!! your system will check for your system defaults!! then it will tell you that you have corrupted files!! and proceed with it!!! it will fix if you have problems with your controls,if it doesnt play games,blue ray,if it freeze, system shutting off,icon problems,only playing sertting games or movies!!! if you have problems or any question feel free to ask!! i know is fustrating!!!

YOur PS3 might be overheating, make sure that it is somehwere in the open, like on a desk, or at least has room if its in a cabinet. Also make sure that it is not on a rug, or any other heat conducting amterial such as a bed, rug, or even plastic.
