    ps3 won't read any disc, Game or blue ray.

    It was working fine, and froze up during a game of NBA live 08 and now will not read any discs

  • PS SUCKS Mar 30, 2008

    My PS3 is two months old and now it CAN'T READ DISCS. Of course I threw out my receipt so I will have to pay Sony another $150 to fix this "piece of ****". Obviously there is a problem with the quality. Once I called the hotline, they immediately new what the problem is and that I should return the unit to them. However, since I don't have the receipt, it's going to cost me.



    Any solutions?

    Ausdawn - When your PS3 quits reading disk, its usually the drive. Sony had me re-install the defaults, takes about 20 seconds, try other disk and nothing worked. They're sending a replacement unit. Someone told me to depress the reset button on the bottom of the game controller (connected to the PS3 via USB cord, but that didn't work for me). Don't bother buying laser disc cleaner CD because it won't read that either. I've had to replace an Xbox, so the PS3 is just another electronic that has quit. that's the way it is. keep those receipts and buy the extended service plan from your local retailer it will save you a lot of frustration.

What is Netflix DVD


There are SEVERAL services out there now other than Netflix if you are looking for a movies that you don't see on Netflix. I highly suggest a Smart TV with apps on it already. Amazon Prime is one kind of service with Netflix does not have it. Sometime Hulu Plus is another.

Netflix will not connect internet on vizio blueray player


see this steps and fix it. God bless you
    • 1 Reset the player if the device stops behaving normally. (Keep in mind that rotation sounds and picture issues during search are normal.) Select the "System" menu from the setup area and choose "Restore Factory Settings" or a similar option. Allow the device to restart and then try the disc again.
    • 2 Insert the disc face up in the tray. If playback fails to start or if it starts and then stops, wipe the disc with a soft cloth and try again. Throw out any heavily scratched discs that won't play.
    • 3 Change the "TV Aspect" to 16:9 in the setup area of the menu if the picture expands left and right or if the picture size is wrong and you're using an HDMI (High Definition Multimedia Interface) cable.
    • 4 Set the wireless Internet router to automatically allow new devices to connect to it if the Insignia player won't connect to the Internet. The player uses only WPS to connect. Some routers that use different automatic setup protocols won't work.
    • 5 Make sure that the connection between the player and the television uses an HDMI cable if you're watching a Blu-ray movie. Some Blu-ray discs will only play over an HDMI connection. Also, remember that some Blu-ray discs won't work with PiP (Picture-in-Picture).

PS3 won't accept certain disks. A few disks i have won't play in my ps3. it happens to both blu-ray movies and games, and it seems to only happen with blu ray disks. i'll put the disk in, and...


Hello
The noise is actually a product of dust from a blue ray disc.Over time these discs heat up and leave a residue on the blue ray lens.
Try using a lens cleaner to remove dirt and clean lens.
Also i read an article that using a wireless controler can also cause freezing of the blue ray.

My Samsung BD-P1600 will play a SD disc but the rental Bluray discs won't play. Is there any way to reset the player? THX.


It is not the player you need to reset, it is the rental DVD's. They are encrypted with a code to limit the amount of time they can be watched, thereby protecting them from being stolen or not returned. Send them back to the rental company and rent the same movies again. That is your only solution. Your player will play whatever is put into it. I hope this helps.

My netflix wont let me sign in. its asking for my ps3's activation code what is that and where can i find it?


hard question but I know the answer

please remember to rate me highly

NETFLIX:

with the PS3 you need a special disc. Luckily Netflix will send you that disc - to keep - for free. So just log into your Netflix account and go to the "Your Account" area. In there, under "Your Netflix ready devices and computers", you'll have an entry for your PS3 (and for your XBox if you have one of each). Have Netflix send you the free disc.

When you get the disc, put it into your PS3 and turn it on. You'll be shown an activation code on your TV screen. When you then go to Netflix.com, you'll be asked to enter that activation code. That will connect your PS3 with your Netflix account.

Now you're all set! On your Netflix.com account, browse through their thousands of movies and TV shows. Select the ones you want to put into your online watching queue. You can search and sort, read reviews. Fill your online queue with whatever you're interested in.

PS3 froze while playing a BD, then it would not rcognize anything


Hi there,
Most PS3 systems end up doing this due to an over heating of the laser lens. Let me explain: The laser lens in the PS3 is made to read mainly Blue Ray games. The movies need to be read faster than the game discs which causes it to work harder thus the problem arising.
Sometimes, your lucky enough for this to only be a dirty lens problem due to rental movies which are most of the time, if not always, dirty.
Have you tried a lens cleaner kit?
This is the CD-ROM with a small brush on it to clean your laser lens head.
This problem has happened to me in the past and this solved the problem.
It is a common problem for any lens reading console.
Regards,

I put a rental game in my ps3 an it updated the ps3 with the software on the game. The game played in the ps3 for about half an hour and then it froze and stopped working what can i do to fix it?


Sounds to me like you have 1 of 2 problems. 1) The disk has gotten corrupted. 2) The disk has gotten scratched. If you Check the disk literally, and it has scratches that is why. If it just keeps freezing or won't startup, then it has gotten corrupted. Try to Return/Delete the Rental game for another copy and you will be all set.

Please give me a FixYa if this helped. - Evolution

Won't read the disc.


A possible over heating issue that damaged the lense or the lense itself needs readjusting (rather than replacing)
