I recently got my ps3 back from getting it repaired. I have a blu ray remote for it but while the ps3 was away i lost the manual for the remote and cannot remember how to perform the initial set up for the remote.
I just bought the remote - go to settings, accessory settings, and the register bd remote..it will tell you to press the start button and the enter button at the same time until it registers. hope this helps.

First off, have you tried playing Blu-Ray movies/games instead of DVD's? If you have and only the DVD's work then it sounds like the "blu ray" part of the drive has died. In the PS3 blu ray drive there is a lens for blu ray movies/games and a seperate one for dvd/cd's. Sounds like the blu ray lens one broke. The cost for repair of this $150 dollars if not under warranty. Now before calling sony try this.
Update your firmware (if you aren't running the latest already). Yup, this overwrites some of system software that may have been corrupted.
First, back up your game saves, and any music you have on your HDD. Format the PS3! Yup, again this fixes corrupted files on the HDD by forcing the PS3 to rewrite them.
Buy a Blu-Ray cleaner and try it.
Sadly if these don't work, you will need to give Sony a call, and have that coffin mailed your way.
has this happened all of a sudden, or have you been having problems before this? It sounds like the laser has gone in the blu-ray drive. does it play dvd's? if it plays dvd's then its the blu-ray laser that has gone, but if it does'nt play anything then i'm afraid depending which version of the ps3 you have, one or both lasers have stopped working and you will need to get the laser replaced. did the ps3 get moved or dropped recently? if so it's also possible that the cable has just come loose? but if the drive is taking discs in but not playing, then it's definitly the laser. so unless you know how to replace this youeself, you will have to take to local repair shop or send back to sony for a replacement console. this way will set you back 150 quid tho. Hope this helps.
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.
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.
I had the exact same problem. I found an old post somewhere that said turning off an internet connection might do the trick. So far it has done the trick for me, but I only tested on one movie. I was getting a freeze every 10 minutes. After turning off the network connection ( wireless in my case but same should apply to wired ) I had no freezes. I'm not sure if I see a pattern but I'm guessing that BD Live may be the culprit and perhaps discs without it suffer because of some bug in the PS3 software to connect or something. Just a wild guess. Looking at updates, BD Live came in on firmware update 2.2 in 3/08. I probably only upgraded recently from a much older version so there is some likelihood to this being the culprit. Don't have enough discs with BD Live to test.
(off the top of my head) go to accessories in the menu and register a new bluetooth device. if it doesn't pick up, read the manual. there should be a way to put the remote on "pick up" mode or something of the sort. then just place the two close and it should register.
