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:

Settings:

Video Settings

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.

Hope this helps!

Purchased 60GB backward compatable PS3 ( used). Will not play games, PS2 or PS3, they freeze up.


There are 3 main causes and solutions:

Software Issue (Restore the PS3 to factory settings via Sytem, Settings, Restore PS3

Dirty blu-ray lens ( take the PS3 apart and clean the laser eye carefully with a DRY q-tip.

Faulty / Failing blu-ray drive ( check and secure all of the cables to the blu-ray drive)

If the issue persists then more than likely you'll need to swap the blu-ray laser out with a new one.

There are a ton of guides on ps3hax.net and youtube.

Hope this info helps!

60gb ps3 wont play ps3 games


The issue is the laser (actually has different diodes for blu ray, ps2 format and regular DVD.
Seems like in your case the only one that is burnt is the blu ray.
Send it back to Sony for repairs or if you do not have warranty purchase a replacement lens and install it yourself.

PS3 region code


Yes you can.. Blu-ray discs are not region coded.. However if you trying to play a DVD or any other format disc then it would not be possible since these are region coded.. However the PS3 games are region free.. can be bought from anywhere and played anywhere..

Hope this helps!!

Japanese 60gb ps3


PS2 games and DVD movies are still region encoded. Your Japanese PS3 will not play them.

It will play Blu-ray games from any region or and Region 1 blu-ray movie.
