Turns out my Samsung HLP-5063W television was powering on to a 480P resolution. Don't know why. The Playstation did not produce a signal at that resolution, hence the "Not supported mode" message. When I manually set the TV to 1080i (its maximum) the PS3 came up just fine, asking if I wanted to optimize the video at that maximum 1080i. All is now well!

Try holding the power on button down until you hear a series of beeps, each one representing your ps3 switching video modes. try this until you get a picture on your screen, then you can use the options to set it to your tv's resolution. I've seen this same problem often from people holding the button when they turn it on :3.

Hope this helps.

PS3 - Unable to read disc


Hi,

Follow these steps when you are facing "disc wont read" problem


Step 1:Remove the disc from the system.


Step 2:Use a cloth to clean in small circles around the disc (not in a big circle going around the disc). Use DVD or CD disc cleaner if available. If you use cleaner, use a different dry cloth to clean the disc no more than three minutes after application.


Step 3:Verify that there are no disc-destroying marks on the disc. Deep scratches and chips in the middle of the disc can render a disc inoperable.As your Playstation 3 is used more and more, the lens that reads Blue-ray discs can become dirty. This will lead to discs skipping or not being read by the console. If you find this is happening on your Blue-ray discs, either movies or games, you may need to have your console cleaned. Be careful when attempting any sort of cleaning of your console, as improper handling will further damage the Playstation 3. Contact a member of Playstation Support for information on console maintenance.


Thank you !!

My play station 3 wont play games or blue ray. It will still play regular dvds.


More than likely, if you have error code 80010514, you have a bad blue ray laser, but just the blue ray portion of it. It will need to be replaced. Good luck!

My PS3 playd cd dvd but not blue ray games


Problem with the laser it sounds like. If you still have the system apart with the dvd drive out, go ahead and replace the laser. You can usually find them on Ebay.

PS3 80g only plays DVDs and PS2 games .... help


The reason why DVDS still work and the blu-rays don't is because it's a three part laser. dvd / cd / blu-ray.

The blu-ray portion almost always goes out first.

Screen freezes playing Blue Ray discs only.


I answer this question like ten times a day so don't feel bad.

The blu-ray laser in your PS3 is a three part laser (cd / dvd / blu-ray). They last only 1-3 years with average use. It's a Sony defect.

It doesn't start the dvd


Mine just stopped after one month too. It won't play blue ray or any games that were playing just fine. Sony will replace if within warranty. They have no explanation. Nice for a 500.00 machine.......
