Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
My new ps3 turns all of my movies into a pink screen and it is playing games perfectly. what do i need to do to fix this problem i have tried reseting the system like it said in the book and it not help at all with this problem.
On the XMB go to Settings ---> BD/DVD Settings ---> BD 1080p 24 Hz Output (HDMI)
Give that a shot, and if not poke around a bit and ultimately you could do a system restore as well. Not sure if those will solve your problem, but it's a good place to start.

SOURCE: PS3 laser Problem
It sounds like you bought a defective laser or it is the chip on your "sister board". There is a chip on the circuit board thats on the bottom of the Blu-Ray drive and it has a silver rectangle on it. Some say that that chip is going bad on some machines. I have repaird 60+ PS3's this year and I haven't had this happen to me yet though. I would suggest trying another laser, then if that doesn't work try a "sister board" from the same model of PS3. I'm still not possitive if that is a possible solution though. The "sister board" is supposedly keyed to only work with the mother board it came with. Well, I hope this helps. Good luck!!

Certainlyit's a problem with your blu-ray reader and, if it'snotcoveredby warranty, unfortunatelly you will need to buy a new one(youcan findcheap ones in eBay =])
