Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

PS3 no longer plays Bluray discs in surround sound

I have a PS3 with latest software 2.7
I have noticed that the player no longer plays Bluray discs in surround sound (even ones that it has done so before OK). Normal DVD discs play in surround sound OK. I cannot see any reason why it no longer plays Bluray in surround sound. Any ideas?

    What Bluray settings specifically? This problem was in evidence before I did an update to 2.7 today.

  • madondrums Apr 23, 2009

    BD Audio Output Format is Linear PCM. Dynamic Range Control is Auto. I have not changed these settings since installation - and as I said, BD discs did play with surround sound OK before. Normal DVD's still do!

Tip

DVD PLAYER to TV HOOKUP


57b6c82.jpg

Basic DVD player hookup to TV cable diagram. RCA cable (yellow) video and RCA cables (white and red) audio. This is all you need for picture and sound. If your TV only has a single RF input, then you need a RF modulator. RF modulators accept the yellow, white and red cables and output a coaxial cable to the TV single input jack. Usually the TV is tuned to channel 3 or 4 to pickup the RF modulators output.

Alternative connection options are many and include HDMI for HDTVs, component video and for sound, surround sound digital audio connection using optical or coaxial digital audio cable.

Surround sound requires a decoder such as a A/V receiver with Dolby Digital 5.1 or DTS 5.1 or more. 6 speakers connected to the A/V receiver surrounds the listener.

Bluray players will play DVDs and Bluray discs. Bluray gives you High Definition video and typically connects to a HDTV using a HDMI cable.

Funaii bluray player won't play my bluray disk at all what do I do


There could be several issues but it would be helpful if you had provided the model number of your Funai player.

Possible causes provided all the connections are ok.

Make sure that the disc is playable on this unit.
Check the region code of the disc. This unit supports the following region codes.
- Blu-ray Disc "A"
- DVD: "ALL" or "1"
For DVD-RW/-R, make sure that the disc is finalized.
Clean the disc.
Is the disc a newer title? This problem may be solved by software update. Find out if you unit has the latest software version.

A new "Tangled" movie disc not play in Blu-Ray


As newer bluray movies come out they are constantly tweeking the format. More then likely you need to update your bluray players firmware or software. There should be an option under the menu for the bluray player to update the unit of course this will require that you have it hooked into the internet via ethernet cable or wifi network.

Hi My ps3 doesnt load games from bluray disc anymore, it plays audio cds.... this happened when i installed the latest update 3.56, i backed up files and formatted disc and i could load games again from...


This is the 2nd most common problem with PS3's. This isn't a bad problem. Your laser/lens will need to be replaced. There are many videos on youtube if you would like to do it yourself (I would advise you not to). I recommend that you find a technician who has experience. There are many things that can go wrong.

If you do, you must disassemble your drive and take out the laser to see exactly which laser you will need to purchase

I am trying to watch a blu ray dvd bit it wont allow me to play it the player just ejects the disc. do I need a software update


Not sure what you are playing it on. A BLURAY disc needs a BluRay compatible disc player, PS3 has one built in. Most PC DVD drives dont play BluRay as standard. Normal HOME DVD players of course cant play them either.

My blue ray won't play blue ray disc's it's already played and it won't play new ones


You can try getting it professionally cleaned but it sounds like you need a mechanism unit and that exceeds the cost of a new bluray player substantially. Make sure you have gone into the menu and under software update there is system reset. Make sure you have completed that system reset and make sure you have the latest software update installed. Sometimes after playing a movie you have to complete that system reset in the menu and the reset whereby you hold down the power button ON THE UNIT ITSELF NOT ON THE REMOTE CONTROL until the unit says reset.

You need to replace the laser.

BUT before you try doing this you should try:

updating the PS3 firmware to the latest version 2.76

Restoring the PS3 to Factory via the System Settings menu.

If that doesn't work you need the KES-400A laser.

Optical input from Sony PS3 Playstation.


Have you tried setting the PS3 on linear PCM output instead of bitstream? The DVR 50 may not say Dolby Digital since the optical cable goes directly from the PS3 to it but you may get the surround channel output you're looking for.
