Re: not play blue ray dvd
Ts a problem with the latest download update. sorry to say but its a
job for sony as long as its still under warranty. just phone them up
explain the probs your having and they will send you a new (normally
reconditioned) unit out. sony's replacement service is very good.

If it plays DVD discs but not blue ray the issue may be with the optical unit inside the player--Blue Ray is more complex and a problem usually with the optical pickup will show up there first, possible dirty or failing optical pickup in the unit.
The blueray eye is out. You will need a new blueray player. The only problem with that is the ps3 will only respond with the orginal parts it came with. ( i.e. motherboard blueray player ) So the best bet is to buy a broken blueray player and take the eye out and replace it with yours just the eye not the whole thing.
u check with the manual whether it has the capacity to play the blueray disk..or else u check with settings there might be some change should be made to play blue raydisk and even check with the site to solve the problem...
Mine just did the same thing two days ago. i have been researching the internet about this cause im not about to spend 150 through sony. anyway what is going on is there are two seperate diods in the laser compartment, one reads blurays and which is also ur games because they are consetered blueray also, and the other diod is for regular dvd and music cds. sounds like the blueray diod has took a ****. To get that part you have to order a new laser which is 150. youtube will show you how to change it. looks very easy
i think in these modles there are 2 lasers one for normal dvd's and 1 for blueray my stepbrothe plays blu-ray on ps3 all the time and his packed up but normal dvd worked so try checking that or using a disk cleaner (a special disk) and try cleaning the blu-ray disk
If I had to guess I would say its the back light on the TV dying, pay close attention to if it is doing at other times and not just during DVD / Blue ray usage. If it is just during the DVD/ Blue ray usage then it could be either the Blueray drive, the video cable going bad, or the video card in the PS3 going bad. See if your PS3 is still under warrenty if it turns out to be the PS3.
If this still doesn't help your problem, please leave additional comments and I'll see what I can do.
if your ps3 is not set up to auto play when you insert disk. the disk should show in the menu under video menu, just select the dvd icon. If it still wont play the easiest way to figure out the problem is go to your settings menu and select reset default settings. this will reset to factory settings but wont delete and info stored in your harddrive. then try again. it should play.
you can try and do a system restore which will reset everything like the first day your turned it on just
go to -- system settings/system restore/format hardrive-- also be sure you backup your filessystem restore eg. your game saves.
If that doesn't work you'll have to call sony and send it in for repairs 1-800-345-SONY to receive repair/replacement they will send you a box to send your ps3 in. Its free if your still under warrenty but since your ps3 is playing ps2 games most likely your warrenty is gone. So it will cost you 150 bucks.
I hope the system repair works for you, it has for a few people.
