Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
I just bought a new 40gb PS3 and it will not play blu-ray movies out of the box. When I insert a movie, it loads for a few seconds, then cuts off and my TV says "no signal", as if nothing was connected. When I eject the disc, the regular PS3 screen returns. Regular DVD's and CD's will play with no problem. I tried a few blu-ray movies and even the disc included in the PS3 box with no luck. I downloaded the newest updates online and tried just about everything I could think of. Any possible solutions for this?
If there is no picture on the TV screen: Back to top

You can go to the main screen when you turn on the playstation and restore default settings. After doing this you will have to set up the playstation again but it should work.
