Go into the system settings on your ps3 and check the sound options, make sure the sound output for games is set correctly, check any of the other settings that applies to sound output. some games are encoded in surround sound, also check to make sure your ps3 has the latest updates.

Im nearly out of memory i have deleted lots but only have 9313mb out of 55gb how do i open up more space its running v3.1


do you watch lots of blu-ray movies? br movies store some disc information on the ps3. i forget off the top of my head, but under the media section, there is an option to see all the br info. it will bring up a list of all the br movies you watched. you can click into each movie, and pull up the menu, and delete the movie info. not sure how much that will clear up for you but it's a start.

also, delete game saves as some of them can take up a lot of room. demos as well.

My PS3 wont play any movies but still plays video games???


Ok so its 60GB its definatly alright to play movies and all sorts, but if you are that desperate to watch movies then you may want to reset to factory settings just access settings and look for reset console, then it would start from square 1 you have to make your accounts and earn your trophies again but if you want to watch movies desperatly then recommed you do that or go to game settings in the game column and have a poke in the folders because there might be a few things in there or go to the film column and check for setting sin there or go to the settings column and check for film settings in there its nothing to do with the updates thats for sure because ive done the same as you but havent played the game in a while but im still able to watch films

I put in a BluRay movie and it shows on the menu but when I hit X to play it, the screen goes black and will not play. PS3 games are hit and miss.


It sounds like you are having a firmware problem. This is common with blue ray. You will have to go to the ps3 site and download the firmware upgrade for your system. I think you can upgrade automatiacally if your ps3 is hooked up to the internet. Go to menu settings and look for updates for firmware or divers...

Please don't forget to give very good ratings, they are important

Movies play/games will not!


if its less than one year and under warranty your best bet is to call Sony and get it replaced/repaired..i had the same problem and had to get the bluray mech replaced {no service in India :( }

My ps3 will not play blue ray or my games.


the blue ray laser has two high energy beams at 450nm(bluelight) and 730nm (redlight). the highpower diode on your machine im afraid has failed (due to the extreme heat conditions in ur PS3). you need to install a new laser ..only 100 i charge or 160 from sony (150+TAX 2 week wait)
Now if you have the newer model laser KES410ACA, then you have 2 SEPARATE light sources...these tend not to fail as often

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 ?
