  • Remove the disc and reinsert it.
  • If the disc has a label, insert it with the label side up.
  • Check whether the disc is scratched or dirty. If dirty, wipe it gently with a soft cloth.
  • Make sure the disc has not been exposed to high temperatures, high humidity or direct sunlight. When discs will not be used for an extended period of time, store them in their cases. Stacking uncased discs or storing them at an angle can cause them to warp.
  • DVD-R/DVD-RW/DVD+R/DVD+RW discs that have not been finalized cannot be played.
  • When outputting DVD content or PLAYSTATION®3 format software in SD resolution, only discs recorded in the NTSC standard can be played.

My ps3 plays games fine and up until recently DVD's also, now it recognises the DVD's but when I go to play it, the screen goes blank and I have to turn off my station in order to start it up...


Over time, the reading laser in most consumer electronics can begin to slip out of alignment. This could cause the issue you are seeing. Firstly, insure that this issue occurs with all DVDs and not merely a few. This will allow you to be sure the issue is with your PS3 and not a scratched or poorly encoded disc.

If it does indeed occur with all DVDs, you may wish to try connecting the PS3 with a different video cable (i,e. switch from HDMI to RCA or vice versa) to insure it's not a copy protection glitch.

There are also several options in the Video Playback section of the PS3's Settings menu that can cause odd effects when playing discs. Insure that all upscalling is disabled, and that the proper video output format is selected. Experiment with the options and try again.

Lastly, if all of this fails, you may need to return to PS3 to Sony for repair. Some sites will tell you that running the PS3 upside down can cause discs to play properly, but I do not recommend attempting this, since the PS3's unique shape makes it especially susceptible to bumps which could cause further damage.

My ps3 plays normal dvd but doesnt load games or play bluray disc


Have you checked your game player for any dust. I mean, it could be because the lens of your game player is dusty and it is not able to read discs. That is the most obvious reason. Plus you need to check the discs on some other player or perhaps on your PC. Try to make sure that the discs are running on some other gadget or on your friend's PC or play station. I hope you try to resolve problem with my tip.
