Re: ps3 blu-ray remote control

If you have not registered your bd remote with the system you need to do so. Go into the Settings menu, remote settings, and register bd remote.

Re: ps3 blu-ray remote control

Make sure you are pressing the enter button in the middle of the direction circle and not the select button beside the start button as this was my problem

Ps3 skips while playing dvd

Get a dvd cleaner cd from walmart or target that is made for blu ray's and that will help you out a lot, if you have a console like mine where the top opens and you can access the dvd and see the eyes if the laser, take a q-tip with some isoproyl alcohol and clean both eyes off, but make sure the q-tip is not overly soaked since you don't want the extra liquid dripping into the console!

If you have any experience working on things like this, you should be able to swap your blu-ray drive out with another one. They can easily be purchased off of ebay, and all you have to do is remove the drive from the PS3, detach the controller board (the board on the bottom of your drive), and attach it to the new blu-ray drive, and put it back in the PS3. The controller board on the bottom of your blu-ray drive "pairs" it to your system. Hope this helps!

    Can't pair up my blu-ray remote with the PS3.

    I had same trouble in the beginning.
    I have 80G PS3 and tried pairing and also registering.

    I solved it by taking out the batteries then going to the menu where it says Register Blu Ray remote (System 2.40 version) then put the batteries back in and you do as the instruction says => Press Start and Enter button at the same time for 10 seconds ... it will say it registered.

    I just did it.

    Ps3 remote

    which remote the controller or the remote to control the bluray and stuff. If its the controller just plug it to the ps3 with the usb cable then press the ps button. If it's the remote for the blu ray. I'm pretty sure you just have to go the the "Accessory Settings" and find the option to pair devices. Make sure the remote is in the mode where it searchs, check for that in the booklet, and there may even be a code you have to put in the ps3 (possibly '0000') or whatever it may say in the booklet.
