Re: playstation3 not working

Please post any solution that you may hear of. I have spoken to Sony and searched many forums and have come up with nothing. Except that one guy claimed he had this problem and when he installed linux his machine was able to use the drive thru linux.

How do i put this code in to watch a movie

Not sure if PS3's youtube app supports that. But you can probably log in youtube on ps 3 right? If that's the case, follow this:

Sign into your YouTube account and follow these steps to make a purchase:
  1. Visit the video you'd like to purchase and touch the button displaying the purchase price.
  2. For some videos, the rental and HD options will be listed. (Note that HD might only be available for certain devices.) For movie rentals, your movie will be available for the duration of the rental period after you start watching it for the first time. Purchases will be available to watch as many times as you like and don't expire.
  3. If you have a coupon to redeem, touch Enter promotional code to show the promotional code dialog. Enter your code and touch Done, then touch the appropriate purchase button to continue.
  4. Select the payment method you wish to use from Google Wallet, or add a new payment method, then touchBuy to finish the transaction.
  5. Once your payment has gone through, you'll receive a purchase confirmation.
  6. You can find all the videos you've purchased by touching the Purchases tab in the menu.
Then you can probably watch it on your ps3 if you logging your google account on it.

How do I watch a movie?

You should be able to put the DVD in the tray and should automatically recognize it and go into the movie.
What type of media are you trying to watch. PS2's cannot play blu-ray movies.

When i go to put any disc into the Playstation3, it doesn't respond by taking it. No gears move or anything, it just acts as if there is no disc to pick up. How can i get my Playstation3 to take a disc so...

This is a problem occurring in all the play station 3 consoles....... this is mainly because of the poor quality of the disc, a result it leads to the damage of ur PS3 lens..............use good original discs........the heating effect is due to the long usage of pirated discs ...
check your lens if its working good then better download this Repair Guide for further information .........

Im nearly out of memory i have deleted lots but only have 9313mb out of 55gb how do i open up more space its running v3.1

do you watch lots of blu-ray movies? br movies store some disc information on the ps3. i forget off the top of my head, but under the media section, there is an option to see all the br info. it will bring up a list of all the br movies you watched. you can click into each movie, and pull up the menu, and delete the movie info. not sure how much that will clear up for you but it's a start.

also, delete game saves as some of them can take up a lot of room. demos as well.

Cannot play MKV movies on playstation3

x360 and ps3 problems aren't really all that different if you're trying to come up with something. I would have to say that you should get yourself a rip like Nero 8 and convert it to data file. I think it's the best stuff out there and you'll be able to watch any movies you want. Check it out.

I just finished watching a movie on my ps3 and now it wont read any discs

First try putting the movie you watched when this happened, back into the PS3, see if you are able to watch this movie and if it reads this particular disk... if it will, contact the company and tell them that your PS3 isn't reading any of the disks, they will send you a box and repair your PS3 free of charge and send it back to you in about 3 weeks.

Hope this helps :)
