Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
Well this sounds like a few possible things.
--Bad Bluray drive (95% sure)
--Video settings are messed up (55%not as sure about)
Generally if your system won't play Dvds but it will play games then your drive has gone bad unless you don't mind not watching dvds. To fix this it is pretty easy I myself do it frequently with my little biz. The part cost about $80 at consolezombie.com I would gladly replace your drive for you and not charge you an arm and a leg!
As for the screen issue, it may be that your plugs arent in correctly, they could have gone bad, or your video settings aren't correct.
If your using the usual component cables (yellow red white) then you may want to look into getting an HDMI cord if your tv supports it. Better picture and sound quality from an already amazing system.
What has happend to me with my settings is that in the Main settings menu go under display and they should be an option about video output (or something similar) and you can change it to which ever you want. But if you can't get to it because the screen is blank then I'd say get an HDMI cable or a somposite cable (red blue green) to replace your component cable.
An easy way to reset your display settings on your system is to push the power button and hold for 5sec(while in standby mode) or until you hear 2 beeps (after the initial one from pushing the button) and then it should be reset.
