Update system error


Go the the GAME section, GAME DATA, delete the game data for whatever game it is you were trying to install.

Shut down the PS3, then put the game back into the console.

Should work after that.

Quantum of solace, on blu ray, previews play fine, film wont


Do need the internet, just go into your settings tab on the intro menu for the PS3 and hit system update. Use the via internet option and it finds the newest version...2.70. Takes a bit to download but, when it's done you get to enjoy watching the otherwise $30 drink coaster.

No surround sound, when playing blue ray films using ps3


Hi there,

Im guessing you are using a HDMI cable,

HDMI cables struggle to carry audio...

you will need a componet cable, this is basicly the same quality, and all you do is plug the audio cable part into the surround sound system and done.

Hope this helps

Hi tomdonnatim,

If your PS3 is brand new, you most likely have to update the system's software to a more current version in order to properly play many Blu-Ray discs.

In order to update your PS3 system:
Go to the home menu, move to the "Settings" tab (the 2nd tab from the far left), scroll down to "System Update". It takes about 5 minutes to download and fully download the update, but it should solve the problem.

More information on the system update can be found below:
