Question about Sony Playstation 2 Slim Black Console

1 Answer

My playstation 3 slim used to play blu-ray quality, now it has a snowy, speckled appearance and doesn't have that flow effect. my games and themes on my playstation look great and is in good HD format like a blu-ray, but when it comes to playing a blu-ray, it has a dvd appearance along with small speckles in the background. It is hooked up with an HDMI cord.

Double check display settings then the first open under there to see what it is set at maybe it defaulted back to 480 instead of hdmi 1080. Also try doing a lens cleaning from the disc that are brushless kmart sells them, and walmart but only online for wal mart this can drastically improve if its just a dirty lens doing it.

Playstation 3 plays dvd's and cd's but can't read a game disk. what could the problem be?

hi Pete,
sounds like the blu-ray laser is faulty/not working which you need to play games on unfortunately. you have a couple of options, if you still have warranty, send it off to be repaired. if you dont have a warranty, then you can still send to sony or take to a local repair shop and they will be able to help you, or if you are not afraid to open the console up yourself(provided your warranty is up) then its not a difficult job to replace the blu-ray drive yourself. Couple of things to be wary of though is . make sure you buy a blu-ray drive compatibile with your ps3, check serial number on back of ps3 and serial number on blu-ray drive. you can buy one on ebay/amazon easy enough. Watch the video below to see if you will be confident to do it yourself 1st before you open the console and buy a blu-ray drive. Hope this helps

My ps3 feezes for couple of seconds when I play FIFA12, then I wait, then I play normally again, but then it just freezes again

It could be overheating. You may want to ensure you are getting proper air flow and that the vents are not clogged with dust.

My ps3 slim won't play games and blue ray disk but I can still play eve movies on it, please help want to try an fix if before nhl 12 hits the stores.

Hi, It sounds like there's an error with the laser that reads blu ray media as PS3 games and blu ray movies are both stored on blu ray disks which is read by a different type of laser then a dvd is read by. There's nothing you could do to fix that on your own, the only fix I've heard of is sending it in to Sony.

My psp 3 will play psp2 games but wont play psp3 games

Try playing a lens cleaning disc in it, just in case this is from a lens being slightly dirty. Chances are that the ROM isn't reading Blu-Ray and will have to be repaired or replaced.

Error occurred during the start operation (8001050f)

the problem is global except for the slim version. dont try to use your playstation until it has been sorted by playstation. it was on the radio this afternoon saying you could loose game data if you tried to play your games. only games with the trophie system have been affected and the psn network is down its nothing to do with the blu ray player or your playstation. its the network.
