Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

Open Question

Netflix menu is zoomed in on PS3, how to fix it?

When I first got Netflix, the menu was normal size. After a few days, netflix zoomed in by itself and it hasn't gone back. I've tried uninstalling it and reinstalling it but it doesn't work. It fits normal when I play the show but the menu is zoomed in and I can only see about 1/4 of the menu. How do I fix this problem?

The Bluetooth audio signal for PS3 only carries voice chat. The game sounds and music are played through your TV or stereo receiver only.

How to get past netflix account privacy screen with rca streaming device


  1. 8 Netflix Hacks You Should Know for Improved & Unrestricted Streaming on Any Device
  2. 8-netflix-hacks-you-should-know-for-improved-unrestricted-streaming-any-device.w654.jpgHere are 8 ways to get the most out your Netflix experience, no matter what country or device you're watching from.
  3. #1. Stream Netflix from Any Country with Media Hint
  4. Unfortunately, Netflix is still only available in a handful of regions. There are plenty of ways to trick it into working elsewhere, but the simplest by far isMedia Hint. Media Hint is a browser extension for Firefox and Chrome that routes Netflix traffic through U.S.-based proxies to bypass location restrictions.
  5. 8-netflix-hacks-you-should-know-for-improved-unrestricted-streaming-any-device.w654.jpg
  6. It's free to use and there's no signup required. All you have to do is hit Install. You can also use a service like Tunlr, but there's more steps involved.
  7. #2. Watch Content from All Regions with Hola Unblocker
  8. Not satisfied with the offerings available in your region? Redditor zhuki wrote a script for the popular Hola Unblocker that lets you switch back and forth between all ten regions so you can stream content from any country that has Netflix streaming.
  9. 8-netflix-hacks-you-should-know-for-improved-unrestricted-streaming-any-device.w654.jpg
  10. If your favorite movie or show isn't available where you live, there's a good chance you might find it in another region. It's super easy to install and switching between countries is as simple as clicking a few buttons.
  11. #3. Access American Netflix from Anywhere on iOS or Apple TV
  12. The Hola Unblocker script above only works on computers, but if you want to watch American Netflix from another country on your Apple device, there's a hack for that too. All you have to do is change the DNS settings in iOS and re-launch the Netflix app.
  13. If you have an Apple TV, it works for that, too.
  14. 8-netflix-hacks-you-should-know-for-improved-unrestricted-streaming-any-device.w654.jpg
  15. #4. Add IMDb & Rotten Tomatoes Ratings to Netflix in Chrome
  16. Netflix may have a giant selection of movies and shows, but it's not exactly a secret that a lot of them are ****. You can save some time sifting through all that content with Netflix Rate, a Chrome extension that shows you a movie's IMDb and Rotten Tomatoes ratings alongside the ones provided by Netflix users.
  17. 8-netflix-hacks-you-should-know-for-improved-unrestricted-streaming-any-device.w654.jpg
  18. #5. Search for Movies More Efficiently with 'Can I Stream It?'
  19. Netflix's search and recommendation engine has gotten better, but it still leaves much to be desired. If you want to stay on top of what's available to stream, an app called Can I Stream It? can help. When you search for an item, it tells you all the different content services where it's currently available to stream or download.
  20. 8-netflix-hacks-you-should-know-for-improved-unrestricted-streaming-any-device.w654.jpg
  21. There's a Chrome extension to make the process faster, and the service offers apps for iOS, Android, and Windows Phone. No matter which device you're watching from, you're covered.
  22. #6. Control the PS3 or Xbox 360 Netflix App from Android or iOS
  23. If you stream movies via your PS3, there's a feature in the newest version of the Netflix app that lets you control it using your smartphone or eReader. The only requirement is that the device is connected to the same WiFi network as your PS3.
  24. 8-netflix-hacks-you-should-know-for-improved-unrestricted-streaming-any-device.w654.jpg
  25. 8-netflix-hacks-you-should-know-for-improved-unrestricted-streaming-any-device.w654.jpg
  26. It works on any iPad, iPhone, iPod touch running iOS 5 or higher. For smartphones, the Kindle Fire, and the Nook tablet, you need to be running Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) or higher, and on any other Android tablet you need 3.0 (Honeycomb) or higher.
  27. If you want to control the Netflix app on your Xbox 360 or PS3, you can do so with the Xbox SmartGlass app from Microsoft.
  28. #7. Mod Your Nexus 7 to Display More Video Options
  29. Being able to watch Netflix on your Android tablet is awesome, but the layout of the app is pretty terrible and doesn't display many options at a time.
  30. 8-netflix-hacks-you-should-know-for-improved-unrestricted-streaming-any-device.w654.jpg
  31. If your Nexus 7 is rooted, you can mod the Netflix app to look much cleaner and show more movies at once.
  32. 8-netflix-hacks-you-should-know-for-improved-unrestricted-streaming-any-device.w654.jpg
  33. Check out the tutorial by softModder Danny to see how the process works step by step.
  34. #8. Access the Hidden Netflix Menu on Your Xbox or PS3
  35. Remember the Konami Code? Well, this hack won't blow up any ships, but itwill let you access a secret hidden menu in the Netflix apps for Xbox and PS3. As my colleague Nelson explains, the code brings up a diagnostics page where you can "deactivate and log out of your account, then associate a different Netflix account with your gamertag."
  36. 8-netflix-hacks-you-should-know-for-improved-unrestricted-streaming-any-device.w654.jpg
  37. It also lets you see stats on memory usage, bitrates and frames per second, as well as a few other useful options like clearing out storage space. Unfortunately, it doesn't work for everyone, so the only way to find out is to give it a try. If you're using a PC to watch Netflix, there are some hidden streaming settings you can access there, too.

We are using our PS3 for Netflix. All software & firmware up-to-date. Shortly after the PS3 outage, several TV shows did the following when selected (happened with any episode selected): The loading...


Oddities that occur during playback within Netflix on the PS3 can often be corrected by deleting the Netflix software from the system and then reinstalling it. This clears some cached files that can interfere with playback at times. You may have to "re-activate" your PS3 on the Netflix site, but this is a relatively quick and painless process.

If this does not help, double check your media playback settings in the PS3's Settings Menu, and insure they match the capability of your chosen cables and receiver. Alternatively, you may wish to change the cable or connection interface you're using (RCA to HDMI or vice versa) to insure this isn't an oddity with your receiver, television, or cables.

If none of this corrects the issue, and everything else functions as expected on your PS3, then it is likely a Netflix issue. These problems crop up form time to time and are usually resolved within a day or two.

Trying to launch netflix streaming and i got the message "there was a problem communicating with the Playstation network. Please try again later." How do i fix this?


Apascual67 -
There are quite a few problems that could lead to you getting that message. In order of easiest to hardest to fix, here's a few of them:
1: It could be that your PS3 is not connected to the internet.
  • Try going to the browser on the Playstation, and try loading a basic webpage, like www.google.com. If that works, then try Netflix again.
  • If you're not connected to the internet, then go back to the main menu, and go to the internet (or maybe it's called network, not sure) settings. Sign in to your home or dorm's wireless network, if there is one. I can't help you with that, as each network is different.
  • If you cannot connect to a wireless network, or if one is not present, then try connecting your PS3 to the internet using an ethernet cord, if you have one. (It looks like a phone cord, but the ends are bigger.)

2: If you are connected to the internet, and you still can't access Netflix, then there's a few more things to try.
  • Most easily, turn your Ps3 off then on again. I'm not super sure if that will fix it, but it can't hurt to try.
  • Make sure that you're using the correct username/password to sign in to the Playstation Network, and that you're using the right combo for Netflix.

3: If none of those work, then there could be a deeper network problem. Perhaps your home internet is set up incorrectly, or maybe Sony or Netflix are having server problems. Whatever the reason, I can't help beyond this.
Good luck!
