Can i use PS3 europe in the philippine, that have different region and system

Yes, the PS3's region doesn't matter since PS3 games and Blu-Ray movies are REGION-FREE meaning they can be played on any system from any country. I, for one, am a PS3 owner from the Philippines. My system is from Japan but I have and can play games from US, Europe, and Asia. You can even run imported games such as Japan exclusive games and play them with no problem.

Play station 3 is not reading yny disk

Hi....Does it read others ok?

If so,try using a CD/DVD polisher on the YNY disk

If the disk is new you most likely have a faulty disk

Won't read the discs

If this happens with all disks , then the lens are either dirty or defective.

Try first using a cleaner DVD several times.

If that does not work , then the lens may be defective, and lens pickup will need replacement.

In that case contact Sony at the numebr listed on the owners manua.

Playing of pirated dvd movies in sony play station slim

This may be because DVD movies have a reigion code on the disk and on a pirated disk this code may be removed. When the ps2 fails to find the code, it aborts playing the disk. I believe the regional lockout for games (which i assume you have disabled) is a different system to DVD lockouts.

Won't play silver disk

Even though I can't go into it on this post due to the nature of the beast so to speak but your problem is the potentiometer pot on the back of the PS2 laser lens (The one dealing with DVD adjustment). This is a common problem due to either one of two things. 1.) alot of movement of your PS2 (ie taking it to a friends house, car rides, shaking, dropping, etc etc etc.) or 2.) A lot of usage.

In either case what is happening is the potentiometer on the back of the lens has moved out of correct alignment.

In english? Your laser lens's laser beam is not producing enough energy to read the disk correctly.

So it has to be reset back to its factory position. Check this site it will help you out.

Hey buddy FORMAT DISC means PAL games or NTSC games format.

There are 2 formats dics in this world for the PS1,PS2,PSP,Wii,Gamecube.etc

They are [NTSC] and [PAL]

[NTSC] is for North America and Japan ONLY. [NTSC] is Original games.

[PAL] is for Asia Only. Which is copied games form the Originals.

I need to know were did you bought PS2 Console from ?

If you bought it in North America or Japan then you have to buy and play Original games from North America Only.

If you bought your PS2 in Asia then you can play copied games.

It is most likely your PS2 is a NTSC, your PS2 cant read any PAL games so it will say format dics.

Play station 2 won't read silver disc only reads blue disc

Hi Elvis,

The Blue back disc is CD format. The DVD laser circuit is giving you trouble. You can adjust the DVD pot some on the back of the Laser. Turn it about 3 degrees clockwise. Then put it the laser back in. Test the PS2 with no cover on, and use the white round disc from the laser drive cover to clamp a disc onto the spindle. Test DVD and PS2 Games that do not have Blue back.
