Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

I can only watch Blu-Ray discs in letterbox format and no other

I've tried changing settings on both my TV and the PS3 but I only seem to be able to get pictures in a narrow letterbox format, is there any way to get the picture on full screen mode?

I had the same problem. What you need to do is change your aspect ratio on your TV. Should be on your TV remote. While you wont get a full screen mode you will get very close. I cant remember what aspect I switch my plasma too I think Full mode. Anyways hope this helps.

Hello
The noise is actually a product of dust from a blue ray disc.Over time these discs heat up and leave a residue on the blue ray lens.
Try using a lens cleaner to remove dirt and clean lens.
Also i read an article that using a wireless controler can also cause freezing of the blue ray.

Do all Blu-ray discs play with the black area at the top and bottom of the screen; like letterbox format? How can I expand the picture to full screen size on my LG 42LD450 tv? Maybe I'm just not...


They all play with a 16:9 aspect ratio. Sometimes they will be letterboxed and other times you will get a full screen with them. On your T.V. remote there should be a picture size button or format or a zoom button that should get you full screen.

Attempting to play a DVD on a Toshiba player but not able to get full screen picture on TV. Can you help with the problem?


A DVD plays in "Letterbox" format. To have full screen, the TV settings need to be changed to full screen, or zoom. Found in the TV menu of most TV's.

Acoustic Solutions 26'' HD TV cannot play PS3 blue ray films


I have recently brought the same TV and had the same problem but I've mangaed to find a soultion.

The automatic setting for Blu Ray on PS3 is Full HD (1080p) but the Acoustic Solutions TV is HD ready (720p). For PS3 games it will automattically change settings for you to 720p. This is why this works straight away but Blu Ray doesn't.

Solution

You need to plug in your PS3 using the scart contection, then on the ps3 menu go to settings > display settings > HDMI. You will then need to attach the HDMI cable and manually set up
HDMI by checking the 720p option and deselect 1080p.

That should then play Blu Rays too. You don't lose too much quality as 720p works nearly as well as 1080p on smaller TVs.

PS3 WON'T PLAY BLU-RAY DISCS


The problem is all in the settings. You probably have a 1080i television that cannot display in 1080p. To fix this go to the main menu and go to:

Settings:

Video Settings

Then Blu Ray Disc and make it turn the Display BD in 1080p 24hz or whatever. Once you do that, start the Blu Ray Disc again, and you should be able to watch it. This all happened because your tv doesn't display 1080p.

Hope this helps!
