Hi there,

PS3 are not made to keep powered on as they other heat.

Buy a cooling unit for it this will help, or just stick a normal house fan near it.

Hope this helps

Hmm...I have had this before yeah Its a glitch In your system...What you need to do Is Over night or atleast 12 hours or so leave it by a cool place Like a Fan to just sit there un pluged so it can Recharge...Basicly what that menas is you have been playing it too much And it neeeds a rest...If that still doesnt work then thats bad news..it means your Ps3 is busted '...' So hope that its just a glitch

No sound on playing games but have sound on movies


You need to check your audio settings
1) ensure they are correct
2) ensure games are ntsc if your region is ntsc and not pal because video might revert and not audio.
3) If wma is enabled make sure you are using ntsc again and also
4) If the ps3 is using jailbreak game could be corrupt
but i would guess it could be 2 so check your tv settings properly because pal games work when ps3 is in pal mode and ntsc when ps3 is in ntsc mode with sound.

My ps3 only plays ps2 games, some music cds and no movies what causes this problem?


The unit more than likely needs a new laser. Some units have 2 laser eyes. One for the blue ray / PS3 games and one for the audio / standard games. Sometimes the laser can become dirty and can be cleaned with a cd cleaner (never had much luck), or by disassembling the unit and cleaning the laser eye with a q-tip and alcohol. New lasers can be purchased off of ebay or through several online stores, but make sure you know which model laser you need as there are more than one.

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 ?

Blu Ray! Help!


it sounds more to me like you have the video settings for your tv wrong, and the blu-ray is trying to play in a resolution that your tv doesnt support. Go into your HDMI settings again, and go through each of the "checked" resolutions, test each one by one selecting each and then pressing i believe x to test. If a picture is displayed right away, the resolution is supported, if the screen goes black...wait 30 sec or press circle and it will return you back to the settings screen. Unchack any that diddnt give you a picture right away when you tested..then save and try....
