Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

Just had a strange problem with PS3 trying to play Clash of the Titans bluray. Started fine, played first two previews/commercials completely, then blank screen and won't react to controller commands. Other blurays work fine. CotT disc worked on bluray drive on PC. The PS3 can't get to the third preview (SD ad for the old 80s CotT), always locks up just after finishing 2nd preview. Says it has latest update.

First before it even gets into first preview start hitting the fast forward or next button untill you get to root menu or you can try hitting the green triangle button and try menu button but i had same problem and skipping forward worked for me

    Unfortunately, this bluray is one of the super annoying ones that disable the skip and top menu commands so that you are forced to look at each preview/commercial; FF works, but just gets me to the same place = console frozen in between second and third preview. I also tried various connections to see if the receiver or connections were the problem, but the same thing happens no matter how I hook it up, even a straight shot from PS3 to TV.

Hi Bonnie,
I have had the same issue on my sons ebook tablet with Clash of the Titans too. Have you tried it on a Computer? It seemed to have the same issue with mine so i sent Facebook a request to fix this and they denied having any issues with the scamble or clash etc. Im afraid it is something they prob are working on so it would be good for you and any friends to send them a help ticket. I will follow your post and if I get any fixes or info ill post it as a follow up.,
Good luck and keep trying

My sons ps3 will play games fine, but just started where it wouldnt play 1 move reg type not blue ray. then it wouldn play a couple of movies... playing some but not others, now wont play movies, but will...


depending which ps3 you have.
If you have the dual laser model one of the lasers could be damaged or require cleaning.
so the bluray side would work fine, whilst the reg side for reading dvds and cds could be damaged.
it might be worth buying a cd lens cleaner with the brushes and fluid and running it a few times in the ps3 this could work but you might be looking at the laser being replaced.
Hope this helps

My ps3 is freezing


Hey.

I might sound like a stupid solution, but if the PS3 is in a dusty area it sometimes freezes.. Try to vacume clean it.. Also, is your fan on and does it sound ok. It might freeze due to overheating. If it only freezes when you play games on a disc, it might be a problem with the laser reader, which could also be due to dust.

Hope some of it helped.

Regards

My ps3 can play dvds and also ps2 games but not ps3 games


if your ps3 plays regular dvds and playstation 2 games but not blurays is most likely that your system needs a new laser lens not the whole bluray drive people tink that they do need to replace the whole bluray drive to fix this problem but all you need to do is replace the bluray laser lents it is cheaper but people replace the complete bluray drive because it is easer I am a ebay thrusted seller and I do sell both the laser or the bluray or use playstations so this is why I know your problem verry good you can do this your self or have some one installed for you or I you can send the bluray drive to me and I can sell you just the laser and installed for you there is a lot of options on this hopefully I have solve or a least help you in your problem thanks

Blu-ray playback freeze


1st DO NOT EXPOSE THE BLU-RAY FOR ANY REASON - You run the risk of blindness and radiation exposure!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Please advise what FirmWare Version you are currently running on. You can find this under;
Settings>System Settings>System Information.

Once I have this info I will provide you with the best fix if needed but It is probably down to out of date drivers. There have been a number of changes to the blurays drivers recently and if these havent been updated then this will most likely be your problem. To solve this all you need to do is take your system online and download the newest FirmWare update. - There are people who NEVER use the system online for different reasons. Since you brought the system BluRay has gone through 4 upgrades. Any BluRays you buy now wll likely be incompatible for playback with the drivers you have on your system.

If you need any further advice on getting online with thew PS3 please post it as a new issue and I will help you - but the PS3 talks you through it to be honest

Ps3 plays video games, not bluray movies or dvds


I would start with a firmware update (2.60) and also a full system restore. That should fix the problem. Let me know. I'm a PS3 expert!

PS3 will not play DVD. No trouble playing PS3, PS1 games & CD?


if you can't play bluray movies then your bluray laser is broken. you will still be able to play games, because there are two different lasers.
