Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

Black box in the middle of the screen when playing dvd on ps3.

Whenever I ON the ps3, nothing happens, it remains normal. But when I play a dvd, as soon as it loads, a black box, right in the middle of the screen, pops up. I am still able to operate the ps3 when the box appears, but it doesn't go away. I have to turn off the ps3, then it gets back to normal. By the way, the TV is not defective. And when I play video games, it works fine. It's just when I play a movie or a dvd (not a video), that the black box appears. Please help. Thanks in Advance.

Your hard drive may be corrupted. But don't waste money to find someone to fix it yet! It may be a minor issue that you can be fixed by yourself.
Remember, you are not the only one to suffer this problem! Because I had help so many people to fix the same problem now. You are so lucky to be there. I share a guide for you - It make me like a pro to help my friends and many people. It is too expensive to send back to Sony repair if your machine is out of warranty!
I had solved the same problems after bought this guide. The author of the book is really kind and helpful to his customers. May be you can buy it and share what you have learned !

My game BFBC2 won't load! Whenever i turn on my PS3 it works fine. When I put the game in the disk icon pops up. Normal. But when I click it my screen goes black. It's a brand new game too! I'm sick of it!...


I'm not and expert but this helped me, turn of the system and then there is a switch on the back. Turn that switch off and let it sit for about one minute. That should work.

PS3 freezes but sound still works


when it happens, give it some time, like 5-10 min. the ps3 is most likely accessing the hard drive, and if it is, shutting down in the middle of it could currupt your hdd. if it doesnt work, even after 10 min, call sony tech support, but if it works fine afterwords, i dont see why it would be neccessary. unless it gets worse, i think you should just turn it on, turn it off after a few min, then back on, and then play.

Sounds like a problem with your blu-ray drive.

Try playing a blu-ray movie and a dvd.

Let me know what happens and we'll go from there.
