PS3 wont play pictures after getting out 3 stuck DVDs


pay 150 bucks to sony to fix the dvd drive or buy a new ps3 and sell the broken one on ebay for about 120 to 150 just sell the console only. you should get a little more if you include the controllers and a/v or hdmi cables. Sounds like you ruined the laser eye ( reads the disc for audio and video)

I have a 32" HD widescreen LCD TV/DVD combo. TDA03211c. When I put a dvd in to play it makes a noise and puts some digital garbage on the screen. Will not play dvds.


Sounds like the DVD player is defective. Just food for thought.. Try not invest in any make with a built in DVD player, they just don't last.

The screen jumps around a bunch when i go to play games or dvds. sometimes while other things are playing also. not sure if its the resolution settings or what.


Sounds like either the PS3 is set to 1080p (52hm84 only does 1080i/720p) or you're ps3 is beginning to go. Try it on another HD screen or change to another input (HDMI --> component (RGB))

PS3 Won't Play Blu-Ray


If there is no picture on the TV screen: Back to top
  • Check that the input mode of the TV is appropriate for the connector in use on the PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system.
  • There may be a problem with the cable in use. Try using another cable that is compatible with the PLAYSTATION®3.
  • If the video output settings on the PLAYSTATION®3 do not match those of the cable or TV in use, there may be no picture. If the screen goes blank, turn off the system.
  • Then, with only the PLAYSTATION®3 and the TV connected, touch the system's power button for more than 5 seconds to turn the system back on. The video output settings will automatically be reset to the standard resolution.
If the DVD or Blu-ray Disc™ (BD) cannot be played, or the picture is distorted: Back to top
  • When outputting DVD content or PLAYSTATION®3 system format software in SD resolution, only discs recorded in the NTSC standard can be played.
  • If the PLAYSTATION®3 is connected to a VCR or a combination TV/VCR unit, copy protection encoding on some DVDs and BDs may cause image distortion, or may cause the image to become lighter or darker. In such cases, connect the system to the TV directly.
  • If the DVD or BD does not match the region code set in the PLAYSTATION®3, it cannot be played.
  • Some DVDs are preset with parental control restrictions. Enter the password that was set in "Security Settings" to temporarily increase the viewer age restriction level.
  • Some BDs are preset with parental control restrictions. Enter the password that was set in "Security Settings" to change the parental control level.
  • The BD may be disc-locked. Enter the password that was set when the disc was created.
if non of that works you need to contact Sony at

Playing back widescreen problem


The TV itself uses the CTC203 chassis and is not capable of switching between normal and widescreen. This is an issue with your DVD player and not a problem with the TV.
