This is just the laser going slightly off key to fix it you need to readjust this and you can do it with a good ps3 repair guide or send it in and get it fixed.

You cant change the regional settings on your PS3. If you don't have the right region software or movies you just need to go buy the proper ones or get a new ps3 that works for the region you are in. There is no hack to change this. In fact i do not even think you could just buy another drive alone to replace it. They are hard wired to the board also.

I can't play dvd's from USA


The most likely issue is that the region code setting on your PS3 is not set to the United States region code. To change this:
1.) Go to BD / DVD Parental Control Region Code (don't ask me why its under parental control)
2.) Change the region code from whatever it is to "United States". The region code for USA is 1.

The problem i have is simple but complicated at the same time my ps2 wont play the region 1 dvd witch has a rating of 18a and its a canada one ive changed the settings but it still wont play it its just...


Hi scorpion013,

PS2 games are region locked which means that disks from other regions won't work on your PS2. If it keeps displaying that message it means that you need to buy the region appropiate disk.

Sorry about the inconvinience.

Ps3 region codes


No, the only way is to buy a PS3 from the region you are needing. However, if you own the DVD you can make a copy of the dvd using your computer and the program DVDFAB that will play on your PS3 because DVDFAB will remove the region lock. Hope this helps, let me know if you have further questions.

HI Im in austrlia.. i bought a 4 disk set tv show from the uk... the 1st two disks work but the ither two say wron region code... it doesnt work on my dvd player or ps3 please help


Different coutries use different region codes Like i am in canada region code 001 and i think UK is 002. It is to control the release of video around the world... like movies in the states come out before the movies in canada. anyway you have to be careful as changing the code on some machines (in the dvd players settings) could only be done a few times before in locksin into the final code inputed thus it will play lets say your uk stuff but not your Australian stuff.

I would research your dvd player specifically and see if it locks itself before changing anything. Good luck

I bought a playstation 3 in South Africa and have moved to Australia and I can get any game or DVD to play on it that I have bought in Australia why?


I think you wanted to write that you CAN'T watch DVDs or play games bought in Australia on your PS3.
The reason is the region code of your playstation. It only can play Region Code 2 DVDs and games. In Australia you only can buy Region Code 4 media.
You need to buy your media from south africa or Europe. Some blueray-discs are region code free. You can check this on: http://www.blurayregioncodes.com/
As far as I know it's not possible at the moment to change the region code of the play station.

Ps2 action replay wont work on 60gb ps3


The Playstation (R) 3 has most likely been patched. I find it knocks back not only Action Replay but XPLODER also (The EU version of Gameshark) both for PS2 it is likely that SONY has blocked it out to stop consumers playing region locked dvd movies. So if you in UK you can only play Region 2 PAL dvd's, if you in the us, you can only play Region 1 NTSC dvds. If in AUS, you can only play Region 4 Dvd Disc....etc.... AR Max had a feature to bypass this problem, thus why sony has probably patched against it. As for a solution I am also searching for one, truth be told, I don't think there is one.

You should boot up your codes on your PS2, then the game.
Save your game.
Then copy your save game to your PS3.

Hope this helps.
