PS3 is not showing bluray movies at 1080 capacity. When movie starts it shows that it is at 480. I have checked off 1080i & 1080p in "display settings" and still not getting 1080 picture. I am using very expensive HDMI cables. Second problem is that sometimes during movie startup (bluray or regular dvd) the PS3 will just lose its picture and say "no signal" on my tv. I have HDMI going from PS3 into Sony receiver and then HDMI from the receiver to the TV. Then I have optical connection for sound from PS3 into the receiver. Have tried everything to get it to work. Getting very frustrated with this unit. Help!
Re: Major problems with PS3 and viewing Bluray movies
Try connecting the PS3 directly into the tv with HDMI, reset your PS3 by holding the power button for at least 10 seconds when the power is off, you would hear the console beep twice and cicle between power on & off. Power on both, tv & console, your console would adjust to the best resolution available on your tv!! If your problem gets solved, you have to play with the video settings on your receiver to match tose of your tv and game console.

Hi my name is Juan and I have the right answer for you and sorry but yes this problem is with your laser not reading the games or movies anymore they don't show an icon after installing any video game or movie some lasers they do still make the disk to spin but nothing happen other lasers they die completely so what you need is another laser or bluray drive the drive is a lot easy to install if you want you can just buy the laser but believe me is a lot more difficult to installed you have to watch how everything was and put everything together the way it was especially if you don't know anything about bluray drives they do have a lot of small parts I do sell both the laser and also the bluray drive on ebay my seller id is the same as here flacooo1 I just sold the last bluray drive I had it listed but I do have more in stock also the laser eye is not listed on my listings but I do have both eyes I am telling you both because there is 2 different type of bluray drives so that means two different eyes look at the back of your ps3 and you can tell the model # you got it starts with the letters CECH---01 LOOK for the 2 missing letters here in my example the last 2 letters are different on each console and I can tell with bluray drive you need if you send me the completed model # and the price for the eye is 70 dls and the price for the bluraydrive is 160 dls and I do accept paypal you can pay using your paypal account this way both are protected you and me thanks and good luck

PS3 is The amazing device by sony but it has some common problems like sound
problem, video problem etc.... Good news is that these all problems can be
repaired with the help of DIY Guides, one' such guide available at PS3 Repair Blog.
the bluray laser is bad. The PS3 has two lasers – one to read
bluray, another to read DVDs. Games are in the bluray format… as well
as your… well, bluray movies.
Or, this might be the issue.
If your PS3 is under warranty, send it in for repair. Describe the
issue, and they will give you an RMA. I once had my PS3 repaired and
back to me within the week.
