Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

Sony Playstation 3 60gb blue ray model CECHAO6

We recently purchased 2 x Playstation 3 machines in Hong Kong believing they would be compatable with New Zealand PAL system, they are not.  Is there any way we can have them upgraded or momdified?  Are parts available? These will not play PS2 games or read dvd's and we believe they will not read the new blue ray dvd's either. We can't find any support from the agents.

    We contacted Sony Technical Support in Australia & NZ they advised that the Playstation 3 that we have purchased from Hong Kong is not suitable for NZ & no modifications or upgrades are available! Their comment was that the blueray movies is region B and DVD's are region 4. Please advise technical support required.

Hi, my DVD player was bought in Hong Kong, brought it back to England to use. recently, it is not reading discs properly, always say"no disc", no problem to read card though. I am wonder how and...


DVDs are encoded with a "Region Code" to allow studios to control release dates around the world. Hong Kong Region Code is 3, UK is 2. Your player will not play back Region 2 DVDs that you are purchasing or renting in UK. It will work fine with Region Code 3 DVDs I would bet.

Sorry to deliver the bad news.

Wont load any disk


Like said above, It needs a new laser. It's a really common problem.

I buy mine at http://parts.consolerepairguy.com they run about $75 each.

I run a repair business and that place has best prices aside from Hong Kong which I don't trust.

Our ps3 will not play games but turnes on fine is the blue ray broken on it?


It needs a new laser because the old one is "burnt out". It's a really common problem with them.

You could replace the laser or the entire Bluray drive.

I buy my parts at http://parts.consolerepairguy.com - the laser are about $75 each and Bluray drives are about $95.

PS3 will load game but freezes during game. Tried Blue Ray disc as well and it froze also. Tried using a Game Doctor cleaning disk to clean the laser lense but that didn't work. Any suggestions?


It rarely actually helps to clean the laser for the PS3. It needs a new laser because the old one is "burnt out". It's a really common problem with them.

Blu ray's won't read

Most likely it is the KEM-400AAA laser.

I buy mine at http://parts.consolerepairguy.com they run about $75 each.

If you click on the laser there it will tell you which model of PS3 the lase goes with.

BLUE-RAY DRIVE


Hi,
try putting a laser head cleaning disk in.
Check that the machines region coding is the same as the country your in.
You may only be able to play JAP Or NTSC-J Games on this Console, due to region compatability restrictions.
