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.

What does it mean when there is a purple wave when the ps3 is turned on? My kids were able to watch a movie last night and play a game but today they are unable to get on.

Sounds like your PS3 is not loading properly. If this is the case you have corrupted data on your hard drive. The link below will help you access this. If you still have trouble then you may need to replace the hard drive in your PS3.

It may be a video setting in the PS3 is not matching the TV. Try this. Turn off your PS3. Then, press the 1/0 button for more than 5 seconds. This should reset your video settings.
