Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

DVDs and BDs won't play on my PS3 80gb

This started just recently. If I put in a DVD, it shows up on the screen as Data Disc. If I click on it, it says "no titles". A Blu Ray disc doesn't even register. Is it just a coincidence this started shortly after the latest update? ( the one for the photos) I've noticed that updates seem to have done "funky" things to my PS3 in the past. For a while I was unable to turn off the system remotely, only by pressing button on console. After the next update, everything was fine. Could this be update related, or is my laser/drive going out? By the way, games seem to play OK.

Chances are it's a hard drive saving problem, since it can still read blu-ray games.If this really bothers you, then save all data you want to save (game data, game saves, music, photos, etc.) then do a complete system restore, update again if it's still doing it then you know it's a HDD problem. But if it's still under warranty call up sony and they will set up with a fixed unit.

There may be a issue with the assembly, blu-ray plays with more precision and speed, for some reason it is not slowing down to play the regular DVD's may be a padder motor problem.

I cant play some blu-ray disc how can i get some of them to work


since it doesn't have enough RAM in it, some BDs or larger multi-layer DVDs fail to play/load entirely Its slow to buffer BD, and even slower to upscale DVDs. It doesn't support homemade DVD+/-R movies. It also doesn't support video on CD.

SOLUTION:
to get the movie to play add a 4GB SD card into it and format it for use as extra memory. Apparently, some BDs require a lot of memory. By adding the SD card, DVDs and THE BDs load faster and have no play problems. The overall downside to the RAM issues and the SD card is that, when the SD card gets full,you will have to reformat it to get anything to play. Tho, all lost disc info needs to be rebuffered onto the card the next time you watch the movie.

The model # is CECHG01. Cosmetically, the system is in good shape, with some scratches/scuffs. It powers ok. You can access system menu. But when I insert a disc, the bluray drive makes some kind of...


The system makes noise. When using the system in a location where heat can build up, such as in an enclosed AV cabinet, on carpet or a cushion, or near a wall (within 10cm of the wall), the internal fan will rotate rapidly to reduce the system's temperature and this may generate increased noise. Move the system to a location with good ventilation. Depending on how a disc is being used, such as when copying an audio CD to the hard disk or starting software from a disc, disc noise may be louder than normal. Furthermore, some software may cause more disc noise than others
The Blu-ray Disc (BD) or DVD cannot be played, or the picture is distorted. When outputting DVD content or PlayStation® format software in standard definition (SD) resolution, only discs recorded in the NTSC standard can be played. If the system is connected to a VCR, copy protection encoding on some BDs and DVDs may cause image distortion, or may cause the image to become lighter or darker. In such cases, connect the system to the TV directly. You may also see a similar occurrence if using a combination TV/VCR unit. If the BD or DVD does not match the region code set in the system, it cannot be played. For details, see "Region codes" ( page 50). Some DVDs are preset with parental control restrictions. Enter the password that was set in (Security Settings) to temporarily increase the parental control level. If you record video content on DVD-R, DVD-RW, DVD+R or DVD+RW media using a device such as a DVD recorder, you must finalize the media before playing it on the PS™ system. Finalize the media using the recording device. Some BDs are preset with parental control restrictions. Enter the password that was set in (Security Settings) to change the parental control level. The BD may be disc-locked. Enter the password that was set when the disc was created. See also the notices under "Playable discs" ( page 49). Certain BDs cannot be played. To play commercially available BD video software, the encryption key for AACS (Advanced Access Control System) may need to be renewed. To renew the key, you must update the system software.

DVD stopped playing all DVDs


Reset you player by doing the following:
With the player on, hooked properly to your television, and on the correct station:
Open the tray
Close the tray (with no DVD inserted)
Hold the stop button down for a full 5 seconds
The CyberHome screen should appear. You should be able to play your dvd's now.
