I've been told that Blue Ray movies don't work on PS3 unless you use an HDMI cable; but I haven't tested that. Also, some Blue-ray on PS3 load as movies, some load as games depending on the content. So check the automatic play feature, see if you can select the BD from the video
section. On your Xross media bar, go to videos and see if there is a blue disc
(BD-rom), click X.
Also make sure that the movie is actually blue-ray. Some old HD movies are sold off on eBay, etc as Blue ray when they aren't. Check it on Blueray.com, if the movie isn't listed it may be HD only.
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.
I have the same problem. My games freeze after 5 minutes. Same with blue rays but dvds play fine. I have reformatted the hard drive and formatted the file system. Nothing has worked. Hearing through multiple sources the blue ray laser is going out or the latest firmware update could be causing this. Hard to know for sure ... major disappoint. I have the 80 gig. 2 years old just starting doing this three days ago. Any other suggestions?
Hi,This is a common problem on the PS3 unfortunately and is caused by a faulty blue-ray drive. Unit will have to go back to Sony for service.You should try a DVD cleaning disk first to be sure that dirt on the laser lense is not causing the issue. You can also open the case and clean the laser lense with a Q Tip and an alcohol cleaning solution. If you plan on opening the case at any stage please ensure the unit is disconnected from its power supply. If this fails and you are confident with electronics there are several videos on YouTube showing how to replace the drive if you choose to order it and do it yourself.Hope this helps. Please remember to rate my answer. Many Thanks.
the blue ray laser has two high energy beams at 450nm(bluelight) and
730nm (redlight). the highpower diode on your machine im afraid has
failed (due to the extreme heat conditions in ur PS3). you need to install a new laser ..only 100 i charge or 160 from
sony (150+TAX 2 week wait)
Now if you have the newer model laser KES410ACA, then you have 2 SEPARATE light sources...these tend not to fail as often
I left all ready some important help about this issue. I do believe you have a faulty laser since ps3 have 2 diode laser on the same mechanic and each one is independent for loading your disk.You can read dvd movie but no blue ray disk or Ps3 game or vice versa. If you have few minutes look on my other suggestion Fabio
