Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

3 Answers

AFTER WORKING FOR A YEAR, PLAYING BOTH GAMES AND BLUE RAY MOVIES, MY PLAYSTATION 3 WILL NOT PLAY MOVIES. WHEN A BLUE RAY DVD IS INSERTED IT BRIEFLY SHOWS THE TITLE ON THE TV SCREEN AND THEN THE SCREEN GOES BLANK. I HAVE TRIED THIS WITH SEVERAL DVD'S. I CALLED TECHNICAL SUPPORT BUT THEY RAN ME THROUGH A FEW HOOPS THEN SAID SEND IT BACK FOR $150 FIX. CAN YOU HELP?

1. Turn off the ps3.
2. press down on the on/off button on the front of ps3 while turning on the button from the back. DO not let it go until you hear 2 beeps and will show a red light.
3. press the on/off button again and do not let it go until you hear 1 beep, paused, and two beeps. Let it go.
4. There should be a prompt asking you what to do. If you have hdmi, answer all the question yes etc.
5 there should be a menu list asking what you need done.. setting wise..

6. Choose the # 3rd list (not sure how many they were).
7. IF it tells you that your data is corrupted etc.. just click ok
8. wait till progress ends ( if it tells your your data is corrupted again, just click ok again).
9. It's going to do some loading again...
10.. end of restoring and you should see your ps3 menu

Does it only do it with Blu-ray? Try a game or DVD and see if it reads them. If it does not than you might have a faulty disc drive that will need repair. I have also heard that formatting the hard drive might fix the problem BUT *it will delete ALL your saved info* so only atempt if you're out of options.

Your PS3 installs data before allowing you to play BluRay? You could try re-installing the data and seeing if that works if you havent already.

My console works and lets me play online games but it wont let me play disk games how can i fix this


Your Blu-ray drive has gone bad most likely. Try inserting a blu-ray movie to double check. Also, try to play a music cd or a dvd. I usually see that cd's and dvds will play but the BR movies and games will not.If your concole is less that 1 year old, contact sony for a warranty repair. If it is older than 1 year, they will repair it for a cost.

I have a playstation 3 console 80 GB, almost 3 years old.... was working excellent. But yesterday started with a problem, doesn't want to read and play either PS3 games or BluRay movies. But still...


I am having the same exact issue myself. Starting a month or two ago, it got harder and harder to get PS3 games to play. Now it plays anything that is not blu-ray based. I would be very interested in hearing how you are able to fix the problem.

How to play blue ray dvd


Insert the Blu-ray disc into your PS3. Start up our PS3. Connect your controller. Using the controller, move along the cross menu bar to the Video option, and you should see the movie listed as an icon just like a game would be. Select it and it should load and start playing.

If you are having issues with it loading up, there may be a conflict with the console and the DVD region. For example, you can't play a DVD from Asia or Europe on a North American PS3.

Good luck.

hi...please verify:
  • your dvd disc region (must be region free or 1 - for USA)
  • playing blue-ray MOVIES disc, to check a possible problem with your reader .
if the blue ray movie doesn't work, you have got a possible problem with your blue ray dvd reader .
then, take it to an assistance center for hardware repair ..
