Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
Are you running the live game play through the internal WiFi card or a wired Ethernet cable? If you can try hooking up an Ethernet cable and it solves the problem, you are getting interference from something and you'll have to move the PS3 closer to your router or just try to keep it on the Ethernet cable for online play. That's what I use because it is much more reliable and much faster than WiFi.
If you are running with an Ethernet cable and you are still having problems, the problem may not be with your PS3 but with your router or internet connection. Try moving the cable to another outlet on the router. Check your network settings on the PS3 amd try to set up the network to automatically detect settings.
Depending on the game, you may be kicked off by other users in the game. I've had that happen a couple times because everyone's a critic.
I hope this helps. Good luck and have fun online! Don't forget to rate! Thank you!

SOURCE: MY japoneese ps3
The pal ps2 games and dvds will not play on a Japanese ps3 due to region coding. You can play all ps3 games and blu ray films because they do not use region coding. Some games will also play differently on a ps3, for example, Uncharted: Drakes Fortune (I highly recommend the game) will not have any blood on a Japanese ps3. The region coding feature can not be changed/modified. I would recommend returning Japanese ps3 and purchasing a European model instead if that is possible. Bon chance.

the console is probably PAL not NTSC
Check in the menu to be able to change the gameplay you might get luck
you might need a MOD chip of some sort.
Google it. You can find some good places.

if it shows Video 1 in the corner and you can still hear it, it sounds like you are having resolution problems. Play with your settings and get it tuned right, or have it auto tune.
One way to do it is to hold the power "button" down for i think 30 seconds, when everything is plugged in and it should auto detect.
Good luck with that, and be weary of people who don't know what they are talking about. PS3's are region free for PS3 games.
