Fixing BD movie disk on UK Ps3


I have a UK PS3,...bought from DUBAI.
I tried playing a BD movie on it.....But it doesnt play.

This is what Happens,....

I put the BRay movie Disk from the US in.....The Icon on BD appears on Movie menu in the PS3 main menu.......

I play the disk....then the screen goes black....and it shows no signal from my HDMI TV.

After like 1 Min...the Warning message part and rating of the movie appears....and then the screen goes into an infinite black screen with no Video output...

Blu ray....games work fine....but no movies...
Please help me resolve this problem!!.....

My ps3 plays games but will not play blu ray movie


You can try clear your movie data from the discs you\'ve played (according to Fox that\'s sometimes the culprit when a disc won\'t even load): restart your PS3 and go to the video menu and scroll up to the BluRay Data section. Go into it and check that it has saved some info for your movies. Now deleted all the data in this folder except the shared data crap, and hopefully your movies start perfectly!!



If that fails try the following:

In the XMB(menus) go to Settings ---> BD/DVD Settings ---> BD 1080p 24 Hz Output (HDMI). Turn that off. This has also been known to work.

My new 3.15 ps3 won't play blu-ray but will play everything else no problem. no problems to play games or to play normal dvd's. When playing a blu-ray the UNIVERSAL part at the start of the movie plays...


f the Blu-ray Disc does not support 1080p 24Hz video mode, the video output may not display properly.

If a Blu-ray Disc movie is not loading properly or is freezing on a title screen, this may be caused by the PLAYSTATION 3 attempting to download BD-Live content from congested movie studio servers. If you experience this issue, you may choose to temporarily bypass the BD-Live content until the congestion at the movie studio servers has cleared.

Go to Settings icon (Settings) > Video Settings icon (Video Settings) > [BD Internet Connection], select "Confirm". Then reload the Blu-ray movie and the PLAYSTATION 3 will prompt you if you wish to allow the disc to access BD-Live content. Choose to not access BD-Live content to see if the movie will now load.
For some reason you seem to think this is a PS3 problem. Why do you think this is a PS3 problem? If you can play PS3 games, then I will say it is not a PS3 problem, as all PS3 games are on Blu-ray, and if you were having problems playing PS3 games, then that could account for the movie not working.

Since only the movie isn't working, I am going to say you have a defective Blu-ray disc. Did you just buy this movie, or have you viewed it before using the PS3? If you have never viewed it on the PS3, then the problem lies in the disc, and you need to take it back and have it exchanged.

If you have played the disc in the PS3 before (the PS3 you are having a problem with, not a different PS3 or Blu-ray player), or you still think it is a PS3 problem, then use the "Disc Troubleshooting" support page. Normally, if a Blu-ray movie will not play, it won't play at all, and it is because the Blu-ray laser has gone out. It sounds to me that the disc is bad, but this is only going on the information you have supplied.

Here is the Disc Troubleshooting support page mentioned above:http://playstation.custhelp.com/app/answ…

**EDIT**
Sorry, I just noticed you gave a UK link. Here is the support page for the UK. You will have to do a search on the site to find the Disc Troubleshooting page for your region.http://uk.playstation.com/support/

HI Im in austrlia.. i bought a 4 disk set tv show from the uk... the 1st two disks work but the ither two say wron region code... it doesnt work on my dvd player or ps3 please help


Different coutries use different region codes Like i am in canada region code 001 and i think UK is 002. It is to control the release of video around the world... like movies in the states come out before the movies in canada. anyway you have to be careful as changing the code on some machines (in the dvd players settings) could only be done a few times before in locksin into the final code inputed thus it will play lets say your uk stuff but not your Australian stuff.

I would research your dvd player specifically and see if it locks itself before changing anything. Good luck

Plays ps2 games but doesnt plays ps3 games or dvds


please verify:
  • your dvd disc region (must be region free or 1 - for USA)
about ps3 games try:
  • restoring your system
  • reinstalling all game data files
  • re-updating your system
  • playing blu-ray MOVIES disc, to check a possible problem with your reader .
if the bd movie doesn't work, you have got a possible problem with your bd reader .
then, take it to an assistance center for hardware repair .

My playstation 3 will not play any blue ray dics at all


This answer courtesy of Sony USA support.

In the Settings menu

BD/DVD-->HDMI 1080p 24mhz

This will be set to 'Automatic'...change it to 'Off'

Now try to play your Blue Ray disk. It should work.

I got this from answerbag after doing a search for you
Hope it helps
