Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

Blu-ray playback freeze

About a week ago I was watching a blu-ray in my PS3 and the film froze. At first I thought it was the disk and tried cleaning it. I put the disc back in and the movie played fine for a while, then froze up again in the same way. 
I tried different blu-ray discs, and all have the same problem, they freeze up after about five minutes. I turned off my PS3, unplugged it, and left it overnight. It was working fine, played blu-rays fine, until yesterday. Well, Blu-rays started freezing again. I once more unplugged it overnight, but this time it didn't solve the problem.
The PS3 plays DVD's and PS2 games just fine, but won't play blu-rays for more than a few minutes (it still plays them consistently, just not for long). The weird part is that when the blu-ray freezes I can still quit playback or turn off the system. My PS3 is a 60gig unit from around launch, so the warranty's expired and I have no qualms about opening it if I need to. I figure it's the blu-ray diode, anyone else have any ideas?

1st DO NOT EXPOSE THE BLU-RAY FOR ANY REASON - You run the risk of blindness and radiation exposure!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Please advise what FirmWare Version you are currently running on. You can find this under;
Settings>System Settings>System Information.

Once I have this info I will provide you with the best fix if needed but It is probably down to out of date drivers. There have been a number of changes to the blurays drivers recently and if these havent been updated then this will most likely be your problem. To solve this all you need to do is take your system online and download the newest FirmWare update. - There are people who NEVER use the system online for different reasons. Since you brought the system BluRay has gone through 4 upgrades. Any BluRays you buy now wll likely be incompatible for playback with the drivers you have on your system.

If you need any further advice on getting online with thew PS3 please post it as a new issue and I will help you - but the PS3 talks you through it to be honest

What's happen to my ps 3? have error d5027


That error basically means your network connection to the PS3 network servers is unstable. Given the time of year and the number of kids that have snow days and are at home, and parents staying home working across the internet, the most likely cause is simple network congestion. You should notice this issue go away early morning when fewer people are online, and get worse as the day progresses. In some cases, you can set up a VPN or Virtual Private Network connection that can help. If you want to try that, go to this link http://community.us.playstation.com/t5/PlayStation-Home-Support/Using-Virtual-Private-Network-VPN-To-Defeat-Network-Error-D50027/td-p/44868077 for instructions on setting it up.

How do i turn on my ps3 rock candy wireless controller


After installing batteries in the controller and inserting the usb stick into your PS3, hold down the home button (the round middle most button with a house on it) for a few seconds until the light on the controller illuminates. This is your indicator your controller is paired with your PS3 and should be assignable and usable at this point.
