    I have no sound when playing a Blue Ray movie. I checked that the cable is connected. I also tried adjusting the sound settings.

    I'm having the same or similar problem. Sounds works on games for the most part, but there will be a few odd sound effects that won't.

    When I put in a newer bluray, the previews all have sound but when the movie itself starts there is no sound at all. Older blurays work fine.

    I've done all the latest updates to the PS3 system.

    All the cables are connected. The HDMI goes right from my PS3 to the TV. I'm playing around with the sound settings now, but no luck so far.

    Any suggestions?

    A few quick questions:



    1. What cable(s) are you using? HDMI, Optical Digital Audion, or the AV cables supplied with the game console?



    2. Do you have sound when you play games?



    3. Are you using an AV receiver or the televsion speakers only?

Error code 80029940


It sounds like a disk read error. In the future please supply information on what you were doing win the error occured. i.e. playing a video game, watching a Bluray movie... etc.

Likely that the movie itself is the issue. Try unconnecting your PS3 from the internet reseting and trying to play the video again without your PS3 connected to the internet..

Good luck.

Update your firmware through the ps3 and you should be all set.

Ps3 will play movies but not games,have tried different games,wont read them,havent played a game on it in a year.


The games are in bluray format. The ps3 has 3 different lasers (built into one) in the drive. When the bluray laser fails but not the others it will continue to play everything except bluray. You can fix this by getting a replacement laser (ebay etc) opening up the console and drive and swapping out the laser. This is fairly easy as its mainly screws, but there are a few cables to be delicate with. Here is a disassembly guide.

Bluray movie playes sound but no picture, HDCP problem?


In order to provide the proper solution to this, I need to know how this unit is connected to the TV. Also, when using the PS3 in game mode, do you get both picture and sound? What is the make and model of the TV involved here?

There are a number of reasons for the loss of picture. I will assume that you have selected the correct video input and video type. But for confirmation, please provide those details as well. Once you update this, I will try to give you an explanation and potential solutions.

Thanks,
Dan

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!
