You would need to get it serviced to correct the problem.

SOURCE: My ps3 is displaying green

If the DVD or Blu-ray Disc™ (BD) cannot be played, or the picture is distorted: Back to top

  • When outputting DVD content or PLAYSTATION®3 system format software in SD resolution, only discs recorded in the NTSC standard can be played.
  • If the PLAYSTATION®3 is connected to a VCR or a combination TV/VCR unit, copy protection encoding on some DVDs and BDs may cause image distortion, or may cause the image to become lighter or darker. In such cases, connect the system to the TV directly.
  • If the DVD or BD does not match the region code set in the PLAYSTATION®3, it cannot be played.
  • Some DVDs are preset with parental control restrictions. Enter the password that was set in "Security Settings" to temporarily increase the viewer age restriction level.
  • Some BDs are preset with parental control restrictions. Enter the password that was set in "Security Settings" to change the parental control level.
  • The BD may be disc-locked. Enter the password that was set when the disc was created.

I don't think you can hook a PS3 to 350W projector. You are maxing out the PS3 output. Good luck with it

PS3 Loud Fan Noise


It sounds like it needs to be cleaned, just blow some compressed air into the fan area, unless you can actually get it opened, then that would be better.
Hope this helps!

Very low sound when playing a movie.


You have to let the PS3 automaticly check sound after setting up HDMI. Redo the Video setup and let it do everything automaticly. Might check audio settings on the tv its self.

Try messing with some the of the BD settings.

It's under SETTINGS, VIDEO SETTINGS.

Let me know if this helps.

I can't say exactly which one you need to change and don't worry about messing anything up, you can always just change them back.

Let me know which one fixes your problem.

Best of luck!
