PS3 WON'T PLAY DVD'S

HI,

 

Have PS3 set up to new tele but it won't play DVD's I am getting a 'NO SIGNAL MESSAGE'  on T.V.  games are fine.  I have heard that there are two types of HDMI cable available but am unsure of the details.  I have 1 HDMI cable which i purchased and i think that is specicfically for gaming.  And another which i think came with the PS3, but i get the same message regardless of which one i use.

1. turn the ps3 off till the red light shows. 2. hold on too the power button on your ps3 (not controller) and wait till the light turns green --> *red* 3. do that same thing again, hold it for even longer till you hear "beeping" twice (repeatedly). 4. let go, and then you should see six choices. 5. of the six choices, select number three. it should work now.

the problem is that your ps3 has a corrupt file. from either dvd, movies, pics. ect.

  • Colin Benefiel Jan 28, 2011

    How did you do this? I cannot seem to get it to work. I turned the power off>>held the power button until it turned red again>>held again until it beeped twice and the green and blue light remained on but there was no signal.

  • pnaylor39 Mar 09, 2011

    Fantastic!! Tried all previous suggestions to no avail but this one cured the problem.

In your display settings on the ps3,tick all boxes 720p 1080p and 1080i and save.This should now play your dvd's provided your ps3 model is compatible.

I had the same problem, mine would play games but my TV said "no signal" i got around it by reseting the connection between the TV and ps3, (make the ps3 re detect the HDMI cable).
i don't no how but it worked but,
i just kept on turning the ps3 on and off a few times and it re detected it? (it went back to the screen when you first plugged your HDTV/HDMI cable into it)

i hope this was useful

Okay, if you have a proof of purchase, and if you have a warranty, you can contact Sony at the Playstation Site. If you have proof of purchase, you can send off your PS3 to Sony at no cost, as long as you are on a warranty, and have proof of purchase. They will repair it or they will send you a brand new system. Depending on the problem.

Ps3 won't play dvd once it is inserted


Is it a regular DVD? Or a burned one. It is possible, that if it was a burned copy, the format might not be supported. If it is a regular DVD, than only 2 options it could be. The easy one is, check the DVD. Are there any big scratches or smudges that would cause it not to read. If it is a new DVD, than there is a real possibility that your Blue-Ray disk drive is on it's last leg and will need to be replaced.

Why won't my console play blu-ray movies


The Wii doesnt play Blue-Ray "BD" Movies, only the PS3 does, also the Wii doesn't play DVD's.
You can get the Wii to play DVD's by cracking the system by placing files on a SD Card, but your Wii will never play Blue-Ray movie because the system doesn't have the blue laser in the cd drive, sorry.

My new homefront ps3 will play on my friends playstation but will not play on mine help


If it won't play online what you'll need to do is set a static ip in your router for your ps3 and then open ports TCP Ports: 80, 443, 5223, and 10070 - 10080
UDP Ports: 3478, 3479, 3658, and 10070
(you'll need to contact your router about that)

If it won't play AT ALL follow these steps ( http://us.playstation.com/support/answer/index.htm?a_id=1488 ) to get into safe mode and select option 3.

If NONE of your PS3 games work and NONE of your blu rays work, your blu ray drive is fried and you'll need to get it fixed. You can go to: us.playstation.com/getservice to get it fixed.

Drive won,t play discs and sometime won,t reconize that a disc is


If the "bad" disks work fine in some other DVD-player, then it's time to spend $40 and buy a new DVD-writer.

Or, if your current DVD-player is under the manufacturer's warranty, exercise the warranty, to get it repaired/replaced.
