Re: I can only watch Blu-Ray discs in letterbox format...
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.

apparently the Netflix app wont load if a disc is not present in the drive. it doesn't matter what disc is in it. just ensure you put a disc in and then restart the system before trying to load Netflix again. works like a charm. was just playing around and figured it out. Netflix originally launched with a mandatory disc you had to have in the system for it to work but they've recently scrapped that requirement to the service however it seems the software is just programmed to check for a disc before loading as such you get a blank screen if there is no disc in the console.
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.
Yes but first thing, the blu-ray disc you are playing must be 5.1 to get true 5.1. If it is an older movie/TV show, then it might be only 2 channel audio. If this is the case, then your Bose system needs to create simulated 5.1 surround sound, which is not true 5.1. However, if your blu-ray disc is a true 5.1, then your PS3 needs to be set to output 5.1. I am not familiar with the PS3 so I am not sure where to located that setting. Also, try other 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:
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.
Check that the input mode of the TV is appropriate for the connector in use on the PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system.
There may be a problem with the cable in use. Try using another cable that is compatible with the PLAYSTATION®3.

the cable or TV in use, there may be no picture. If the screen goes
blank, turn off the system.
Then, with only the PLAYSTATION®3 and the TV connected,
touch the system's power button for more than 5 seconds to turn the
system back on. The video output settings will automatically be reset
to the standard resolution.
