Major problems with PS3 and viewing Bluray movies

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!

    Yes, I unchecked all that I could. However, it would not let me uncheck 480 for some reason. I tried but was unable. Seems like it is locked or something.

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.

Did you uncheek the other options when choseing 1080p or it might be your receiver because you have to set that to make the picture quality as much as the ps3

My ps3 wont load ps3 games


Hi,

This problem is common with the PS3 and typical of a failure of the bluray drive. It can sometimes be resolved by cleaning the laser pickup lens but often the lens itself needs to be replaced.

For a full breakdown on the issues involved please view this FixYa Tip.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Ps3 wont read dvd or bluray discs


If you are facing problems of freezing and non-readable disc you should first try lens cleaning, the best option would be to give it for repairs to Sony if your product is under warranty

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 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!

Bluray wont read my ps3 games on my ps3


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.
