This is an interesting problem, usually games play but bluray movies don't (if thats what your playing film wise)

most common issue is to need to replace your Bluray optical drive or lens or board. Just depends on how much you want to take it apart and discect it. I for one would rather buy the new optical drive, install it and get back to playing!! Most drives run about $80 online. But if your Ps3 is under warranty seriously go to Sony and talk to them. Otherwise I can replace it for you.

SOURCE: ps3 read errors

There is a fault with the laser unit in the PS3. This is similar to the PS2 DRE problems and usually replacing the laser fixes it.

SOURCE: my ps3 has just started to stop playing blu ray films after 20min

the laser is starting to go bad in the dvd drive. It takes more power for the drives laser to read and play a blu ray movie then it does to play a dvd game.

You can either replace the laser if you have the technical knowledge to take the dvd drive apart, or just replace the drive. You can usually find either one on ebay.

SOURCE: my ps3 stopped playing ps2 games

Hi, it sounds like your laser may be dirty or need replaced. First try to run a laser lens cleaner through it. If it won't read the cleaner, then try to blow out the DVD drive with some canned air or with an air compressor. If that dosen't help then your laser is probably burned out and needs replaced. This is a very common problem with the PS2 and PS3 systems. Remember that a PS3 has 2 lasers in it so it might still read Blu-ray discs and not anything else, but the red laser for the DVD,CD,PS1&2 games might be burned out.

My PS3 can't only PS2 games!!! 80028F17


Not all PS3s are able to play PS2 games - they started removing that functionality when they came out with the 60GB model. So if you have a relatively new PS3 (A year old or so), that's likely the reason.

No surround sound, when playing blue ray films using ps3


Hi there,

Im guessing you are using a HDMI cable,

HDMI cables struggle to carry audio...

you will need a componet cable, this is basicly the same quality, and all you do is plug the audio cable part into the surround sound system and done.

Hope this helps

Acoustic Solutions 26'' HD TV cannot play PS3 blue ray films


I have recently brought the same TV and had the same problem but I've mangaed to find a soultion.

The automatic setting for Blu Ray on PS3 is Full HD (1080p) but the Acoustic Solutions TV is HD ready (720p). For PS3 games it will automattically change settings for you to 720p. This is why this works straight away but Blu Ray doesn't.

Solution

You need to plug in your PS3 using the scart contection, then on the ps3 menu go to settings > display settings > HDMI. You will then need to attach the HDMI cable and manually set up
HDMI by checking the 720p option and deselect 1080p.

That should then play Blu Rays too. You don't lose too much quality as 720p works nearly as well as 1080p on smaller TVs.

MY japoneese ps3


The pal ps2 games and dvds will not play on a Japanese ps3 due to region coding. You can play all ps3 games and blu ray films because they do not use region coding. Some games will also play differently on a ps3, for example, Uncharted: Drakes Fortune (I highly recommend the game) will not have any blood on a Japanese ps3. The region coding feature can not be changed/modified. I would recommend returning Japanese ps3 and purchasing a European model instead if that is possible. Bon chance.
