Samsung LCD tv and PS3

I have a Samsung LCD Tv and a Playstation 3. My tv will play everything except Blue Ray movies. It will play all my games, regular movies, just not Blue Ray. I even bought a better HDMI cord and it still doesnt work. Whats wrong?

    I have the exact same issue with my Samsung LCD; it displays games and everything except blu-ray. I think its a firmware issue with the TV. I'm not sure. All I know is that the PS3 will play blu-ray movies on my other LCDs fine.

The problem is with the frames per second that the ps3 is putting out. i wound up calling both samsung and sony and the problem was in the settings. the ps3 allows you the option of playing in 24hz and for some reason if the option isn't turned off our tvs won't display frames at that rate. just go to the dvd settings and deselect the 24hz option, changing it from AUTO to OFF... the only problem i have with this is that this should effect the picture quality, becasue if it isn't displaying in 24hz that means it is downscaling the display and if it isn't upscaled by the tv's processor, then the display should be worse. i might be imagining it, but it does seem worse.. atleast they play now though. hope i helped.

Had the same problem and this solution worked great. Not sure if anyone is still monitoring this board, but I could get the blu-ray movies to play fine if I used component cables (that I used for my PS2) instead of HDMI WITHOUT changing the FPS setting. I couldn't really tell a difference in quality; they both looked great. I was just wondering if anyone else had tried the component cables and could tell a difference either way. Was just wondering if it's worth taking back the HDMI cable and settling for component instead (about a $40 difference).

I have/had the same problem and this fixed the issue. I have a work order with Samsung and the tech guy is coming next week. I'm not sure if by turning off the 24hz option that I am giving up picture quality so I would like to see if there is a soultion on the tv side rather than the PS3 side.

I am using the HDMI cable and have not tested with component cables.

Games run on hdmi, but not Blu-ray movies


You most likely have the updated drivers. You may have to go and change a setting. I found an answer on the PS3 website that may be of some use to you. I hope this helps you: http://boardsus.playstation.com/playstation/board/message?board.id=ps3&message.id=1662191 From the site: "go to bd/dvd setting and set the "108024hz" option off"
