Movies use a Region code. For North America we use the NTSC configuration which allows 30 frames per second and the European code is PAL which limits it to 24 frames per second, while the difference is minimal, US DVD players cannot read Europe's DVDs and they can't read ours.

Playstation 3 not playing games but will play blu ray discs


Make sure that your firmware is updated correctly. Also make sure the games are the correct region for the unit you're playing on. You may have an incorrect region setup on the PS3. PS3 games are region locked, either being PAL or NTSC. If the PS3 is set to read PAL (by being set to a region that is PAL, like the UK, Europe, and Japan) it will not read or play an NTSC disc.

Misconfigured or corrupted firmware installations can also cause this problem. Furthermore, pirated games will not play, because they do not have the appropriate security key on the disc.

You can try testing this by creating a new profile on the PS3 and trying to play the games. If you can play them with the new profile, then there is a corruption with the old profile. If you can't play them in the new profile, then it could be the firmware.

Lastly you may have a blown drive. Most PS3 games are dual layer blu ray discs capable of storing large amounts of data. The blu ray drive in the PS3 uses a sequenced dual laser to read the game. If one of the laser emitters has blown, it won't read the game correctly. However, since it doesn't use both emitters to read blu ray movie disks or dvds they'll still play correctly.

It just wont let me watch the movie on my ps3 it says the " region code is not correct " how do i change the region code


One way is to go into Settings - Security Settings - BD/DVD Parental Control Region Code and set the code (US=region 1) As far as blue ray, you may have to "jailbreak" the PS3.

Can i use PS3 europe in the philippine, that have different region and system


Yes, the PS3's region doesn't matter since PS3 games and Blu-Ray movies are REGION-FREE meaning they can be played on any system from any country. I, for one, am a PS3 owner from the Philippines. My system is from Japan but I have and can play games from US, Europe, and Asia. You can even run imported games such as Japan exclusive games and play them with no problem.

My PS3 plays some movies but some say my region code is not correct so I was wondering how to fix it.


Your region code is based off of where you got your PS3, the regions are US(NTSC), Japan(NTSC-J), and Europe(PAL). The only way to fix this is to reburn your DvD's after converting them with dvdShrink

Unlock the region code to play imported blue-ray movies


Short answer...yes, would you like to invest what would likely be days learning the process? There may be a mod ship out there somewhere, but unless you are willing to modify the PS3 in someway that would likely void any warranties, then you're going to have to find a DVD for your region. A mod without a chip would involve installing linux in addition to the OS that the playstation comes with. I'm sure the process has gotten easier since I last checked, but I found it too painstaking.
