I have a ps3 as well, mine does not have have a phone jack, but it does have an ethernet jack. I am hoping that yours is the same. If you connect it to your internet via an ethernet jack, the key should update when you go to the system settings.

How do I play a blu ray DVD on my PS3. I am not hooked to the internet. It is saying that I need a new encryption key. What can I do to watch this Dvd?


You need to update your PS3 software, which should also update your encryption keys. I understand that you don't have internet, but do you have a friend, etc. with internet where you could take your console to?
The reason for this: encryption codes are updated to enhance security of the discs (in an attempt to prevent copying, etc) but also new codes are added when new movies are released.
Unfortunately, these updates are periodic, and will probably need to be done once or twice a year. Good luck.

I need to renew my ps3 BD encryption key to watch blue ray movie


Some newer blu ray discs require that your system be updated to view the movie. This is due to a security "encryption" set by various movie companies. (they are trying to prevent people from copying their movies).
If your PS3 is connected to the internet this should be done automatically when trying to view the movie.
hope it helps
~good luck!

The PS3 will not play the new (BD) dvd I just hired .And i have never had this problem befor. Its askin me to renew my encryption key and says something about system software up date. I am not connected to...


All Blue Ray players need to be updated from time to time to keep up with the growing technology of Blue Ray. PS3 is the same way. It is asking you to update your PS3 in order to play the disc. On the back of the PS3 is a Ethernet port (looks like an over sized phone jack) connect this to your internet (modem) and it will update your encryption key and software needed to play Blue Ray discs. Here is a link for that as well.

How to perform system software update to renew encryption key on my playststion 3


You may have to renew the AACS encryption key to play content such as movies on commercially available BD video software (BD-ROM). If a message indicating that the encryption key needs to be renewed is displayed, update the system software to the latest version. The encryption key will then be automatically renewed.
AACS (Advanced Access Control System) is a copyright-protection technology that is used on Blu-ray Discs. The copyrighted content is protected by setting an encryption key on both the disc and the device used to play the disc.
An AACS encryption key expires in 12 to 18 months and must be renewed. There may also be other times when the key has to be renewed. in the manual

How do i do this to play this bd, you must renew the encryption key. perform a system software update to renew the encryption key.


Do you know if your PS3 has been updated to the most current firmware? In your XMB on your ps3 go to settings.. The very top option is system update. Click it and it will ask you to select a method. Update via internet. Go through this you should be good to go. Sometimes the key just has to be renewed, they usually expire 12-18 mos. Heres a link to the manual..
