American DVDs unable to play for my PS3

I bought a PS3 (silver edition) in Singapore. When I bought it they upgrade the system to play all of the games for every region.

When I got home, I was able to play all blu-ray disc but not my own DVDs.

What can I do to make my PS3 play U.S. DVDs?

At this time the region lock on ps3 only includes DVD and ps1-2 titles. Although some games will have the 80028F10 error. Most ps3 and blue ray will play without problems, my only suggestion being that if you are in the US, make sure you get a US ps3.

hope this helps.

Ps3 bought in 2006 will not play ps3 games It


May sounds like a silly answer, but, do you have your PS3 hooked up to the internet. If not, there are many updates for the system which you are missing and therefore the new games will not play because of missing system updates. Hope this helps you out.

I bought pioneer muti system dvd


Check your DVD player's color system, most multi system dvd player has to be set(PAL or NTSC) manually, NTSC for American standard. Look for this button could be a mechanical switch at the back or at the menu. Some machine need to reboot after setting. Hope this helps

I am unable to play dvds. The system starts with


Try other discs to see if the system is reading anything.

If it isn't then take a can of air and blow some into the drive to make sure there is no dust or dirt on the laser.

After that, try again and if the system isn't reading discs still then that means that the laser is bad. You can either replace the laser or the dvd drive itself.

Japanese Ps3 not playing American games


It's because your trying to play american games on a japanese system. See the japanese system is different because of not only how much Power it needs to function (I'd be wary about that btw) as well that a Japanese PS3 can only play Japanese PS3 games. American games wont work for it.

European playstation in America


Yes it will work just fine and be able to play any and all ps3 games and blu ray disks. However, you will not be able to play canadian (ntsc) coded dvds and ps2 and ps1 games because the region coding of the spanish pal ps3 is not compatible with north american dvds.
