Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

PS3 wont play Blu-rays!!!!

So it started when I was watching a blu and about 30 minutes into it it froze. Then when i would restart the system it would at best play for a few mins and then freeze again. It seems the longer i let the PS3 rest the more it will play. But i havent been able to get it to play more than 10 minutes straightsince the problem started.

It also seems that every time I take the blu-ray out i see a faint line that goes straight across the disc.. looks like dust or something, and it is easily wiped off.

DVDs are playing just fine, and i do not see the faint line when i take them out.. I dont have any games so im not sure if they would work or not.

    It's updated to the max right now and has played blu-rays with the current firmware before.

The faint lines are nothing. its just smudging or something. the main reason why a ps3 wont play a clean bluray movie is if your system is in need of an update if you have already done that then it may be an issue to call sony with...

Make sure you have nothing stacked on top of th dvd player.. it maybe geting to hot!!

Let it cool down then try starting the moive at the time it froze to test for a bad eye.

System needs to be repaird or replaced.

Blu-ray playback freeze


1st DO NOT EXPOSE THE BLU-RAY FOR ANY REASON - You run the risk of blindness and radiation exposure!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Please advise what FirmWare Version you are currently running on. You can find this under;
Settings>System Settings>System Information.

Once I have this info I will provide you with the best fix if needed but It is probably down to out of date drivers. There have been a number of changes to the blurays drivers recently and if these havent been updated then this will most likely be your problem. To solve this all you need to do is take your system online and download the newest FirmWare update. - There are people who NEVER use the system online for different reasons. Since you brought the system BluRay has gone through 4 upgrades. Any BluRays you buy now wll likely be incompatible for playback with the drivers you have on your system.

If you need any further advice on getting online with thew PS3 please post it as a new issue and I will help you - but the PS3 talks you through it to be honest

Red Ring / System Crashes / Doesn't Start


Hi Kashman, The industry is trying real hard to come up with a solution. Microsoft has extended the wrranty for people like you. Problem is that I hear they just send you a refurbished unit that will do the same thing eventually. Best plan i have heard is to do things to keep the Xbox as cool as possible. Currently I am not sure what to do with the Slow boot up. Keep it in open air area and out of sunlight. It helps to allow a fan to blow on it during play.

Movies on my recorded discs freeze after a few minutes of play


Sometimes this unit gets "confused" - not sure why -- but try first using a CD cleaning disk and let it start and stop a couple times (sometimes lens gets dirty and does this) - if that doesn't help then try unplugging unit and leave unplugged (from wall socket) for about 30min then plug in, set local time and then see if the disks play okay - sometimes this "resets system"
