It's a GPU problem. Sony will be your best bet for the repair since it's not easy to fix without experience.

You can reach them @ 1-800-345-SONY. Get ready to pay $150 for a design defect. :)

My playstation 3 will freeze up when i watch blu ray movies but games are fine. Why is this?


Hello,

The lens of the playstation 3 is getting weak that is why it freezes whenever you are watching a blu ray disc movie on it.

You can replace the lens and the problem will stop.

Take care

Looks like your Blu-Ray lens is dirty or dead. Try getting a laser lens cleaner and running it through your PS3 a few times. If this doesn't fix the problem, you will need to contact PlayStation and having it repaired.

My PS3 plays PS2 games fine, but freezes up when playing PS3 games. When it freezes up on the ps3 games, the main console menu still works fine. How do I get my PS3 to play PS3 games without freezing?


The issue is the Blu-Ray diode. If one disc stops working 100% of the time but the other two types still work (DVD and CD) then the blu-ray diode died. The good news is that a handy person can fix it for about $45. Just do your research and watch a few youtube videos on replacing the laser and opening the case to make sure you are comfortable. I just did it and it was fine. You can buy the laser assembly on eBay, just make sure you go local and get a warranty. Don't buy overseas.

80GB PS3 displays Snow/White screen during playback


Did you ever figure out how to fix this. We simply took our system and hooked it up to a different tv and it stopped. I personally think the problem is with the HDMI cable and wether the cable and the socket are connecting.

Blu ray not playing on ps3


Could be an overheating issue.. Is there enough air circulation around the unit? Is it possibly dusty? try and perform minor servicing (use a can of compressed air incase if there's dust causing problems)

Does this happen on regular dvd's ?
