If you are talking about the PS3 you can use a standard IEC cable, commonly known as a Kettle lead, and can get them from any electrical hardware store for next to nothing. Chances are you probably have a spare one around the house somewhere, most PC's and monitors also use the same plug.

That's if you're talking about the PS3.

It was fixed but it don't exits games

I dont know what unit you have....I purchased the first run PS3 anf it has lasted aprox 6 years with no problem at all. I would suggest looking on craigslist for a replacement blue ray drive for around 20 buck used. if you send it to playstation it WILL cost 129 plus tax to start. Good news is that they will send you the box for shipping and shipping is included. If you are handy.....disassemble the blue ray and see what is sticking... you may want to use some white lithium gets old.

Not reading cd or dvd

Clean discs and clean the system. If no problem there you will have to clean the laser eye. might have to tear apart and clean with a lens cleaner if one of those dvd/cd-rom cleaner disc doesnt work. lots of videos on you tube to aid in the disassemble of the playstation. if that dont work then you are like me and have a broken blue ray lense. Very common problem with PS3's. Replacement of one of these will cost around $40-70 for the part. If you are comfortable doing something like this. If you dont know what you are doing I dont recommend disassembling your system. There are plenty of people out there that have started business' out there to fix all game systems and there faults. they are fairly resonable. I have the 40 gig orignal PS3 and mine broke on xmas. everything works but it will not play any cd, dvd, blue ray, or game disc. My eye is bad. send to playstation if you have warranty. If warranty is up it will cost $100 + to send it to playstation and for diagnoses of your system. hope this helps.

Bought a blue ray movie to try out on ps3 now it asks for an encryption key, wth? i don't hook my ps3 to inter net, but asking for a system software update to renew encryption key to play blue ray

-= Renew PS3 Encryption Key =-

If i was you i wouden update. the latest update sony have provided is causing alot of problems, such as not being able to read blue-ray movies and games. (3.00/3.01)

I know you dont see it this way, but i acaully see you as a very lucky person that you havent updated your machine yet, my ps3 dont work anymore after i updated, or it does work, but it just cant read any blueray games or movies.

But if you have a ps3 slim you probaly wont have this problem, its more older models that suffer under this bug. :(

i dont know what your current firmware is, but if its way below 2.80, then your still in the safe zone, cuz if you own a usb memory stick you can transfer the 2.80 update to ( USB-ROOT\PS3\UPDATE\PS3UPDAT.PUP ) and then unplug it from your computer and insert it into your ps3 and then try the update from local storeage.

i hope you can use this :o)

PS3 load games or blue rays.

It could be that the settings on your ps3 are configured poorly for your television. Try fidling around with the output, and video settings form the settings section on the XMB. If none of this works then chances are your ps3 is broken.

Was wondering if you can use an external blue ray drive to replace the existing internal one

You would need to know the exact Brand of the peripheral and buy the exact same thing. The it would be possible.

Ps3 not reading blue ray dvds or ps3 games

You need to contact the manufacturer. (Call the 1-800 or W/e line)

They will ask you for the model number on your PS3. and provide instructions on how to locate it.
then they will tell you weather or not your under warranty still. DONT WORRY

from the sounds of this, this is a manufacturing problem. Instead of doing a recall like a respectable company, they sit around and when one of them calls in with problems THEY FIX IT FOR FREE.

they do this because most people figure once the warranty is void that there is nothing you can do.

You will recieve a "Refurbished" system in return for yours. IE someone else complained theres was broken and they fixed it for cheap and will send you this. (its fine they also give you a temporary warranty most of the time)

GL and Get in Contact With the PS3 People (idk who they are lol)

LITTLE TIP I know X Box 360 irregardless of lot number or warranty 95% of the time will just send you a refurbished one if you live in CANADA. (this is because of our "Extreme Environment")
(I asked what that was and they said the dust and waether and grass.)

Ps3 blu ray lens cleaning

What are you saying you screw up your $600 dollar console. OMFG i mean common man. Jeez luis. Well since you have your ps3 already open your ps3 system you should open again and extract cod4 out of your blue ray drive before you hook it up and all that. So take the game out connect the blue ray drive back put the system together and power it up. See if that works.

DS power problem

Hi Nerts,


These cables or ribbon cable and wire connects directly inside the upper LCD monitor. it is not feasible to replace these wires only.  I suggest you see about getting a replacement upper LCD screen which will give you the wires you need and a new screen to boot. Another porblem is the case itself is very hard to disassemble.  You will come near destroying the case to ge to the lcd.  You must disassemble the unit fully and put the correct curl in the ribbon cable to get it to fit right. In short, the price being what it is for a replacement LCD, and the trouble you have to go though to get this problem fixed, It may not be totally worth repairing. If you dont care and wish to do a repair, then my wishes for luck are with you.
