Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

Open Question

PS3 BD remote will stop responding during movies.

When watching a movie, my BD remote will stop responding and the game controllers will no longer work either. The green light on the console will flash. And the only way to get it to do anything is to turn off the Main power switch on the back. I've moved it to a more ventilated location but that doesnt seem to affect it. ?????

SOURCE: Ps3 Region codes

I have searched the web extensivley around the same question, looking for a region code hack for PS3 Blue Ray disc movies but I have found none.

My conclusion, the hack does not yet exist or is not widely known.

Also the problem with whatever hack if it is written, if you put your PS3 online to enjoy the great benefits of online gaming, Sony can easily close the security hole exploited by the hack with an online download or firmware upgrade.

Good luck.

SOURCE: Blue ray disc on Ps3 does not look high definition

If your TV has a 120 mhz setting, turn it off. My blu-rays (and some regular DVDs) were having problems as well, but this solved it. Basically, the 120 mhz setting is just too good, even for a PS3.

The setting may have other names, but whatever it's called on your TV, it's responsible for providing extra scaling/processing from the source (your PS3).

Also, make sure your PS3 is NOT set to double-scale. "Normal" is just fine.

  • Like the 360, the PS3 also has problems.  This problem is known as the SoD (spin of death). In this the lens of your PS3 stops working. Sony is the best one that can help for this kind of error. Best to stick with them, or if your retailer has an exchange policy, ask for a new PS3. But my local dealer fixes this up for 125$. 
  • IMPORTANT - DO NOT OPEN YOUR CONSOLE YOURSELF AS THE WARRANTY THAT SONY PROVIDES WILL THUS BE VOID!!!

SOURCE: my ps3 console will not read my games or movies and try a disc cleaner & nothing

The problem is not normally with the discs itself but with the lens coming away from where it needs to be.
You just need to readjust the lens that sounds difficult but really it is not too tough.
Check out this PS3 Repair blog and get the fix you need.

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.

I need to renew my ps3 BD encryption key to watch blue ray movie


Some newer blu ray discs require that your system be updated to view the movie. This is due to a security "encryption" set by various movie companies. (they are trying to prevent people from copying their movies).
If your PS3 is connected to the internet this should be done automatically when trying to view the movie.
hope it helps
~good luck!

My ps3 iant reading games or blu ray discs how can i fix this myself?


I've been told that Blue Ray movies don't work on PS3 unless you use an HDMI cable; but I haven't tested that. Also, some Blue-ray on PS3 load as movies, some load as games depending on the content. So check the automatic play feature, see if you can select the BD from the video section. On your Xross media bar, go to videos and see if there is a blue disc (BD-rom), click X.

Also make sure that the movie is actually blue-ray. Some old HD movies are sold off on eBay, etc as Blue ray when they aren't. Check it on Blueray.com, if the movie isn't listed it may be HD only.

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/

Blu ray movie freeze up


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.
