Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

Open Question

When I play a movie with the blue-ray - the picture jumps and has a white flash to it. Thought maybe it was something elsa on the electrical line causing interference so I used a a dedicated electric line and the same result. It picture looks like there is something on the disc maybe casusing it, but I have tried many different movies-disc and the same result. I even returned the machine to place of purchase and got another thinking the first was faulty, but same HELP

SOURCE: PS3 Won't Play Blu-Ray

If there is no picture on the TV screen: Back to top

  • Check that the input mode of the TV is appropriate for the connector in use on the PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system.
  • There may be a problem with the cable in use. Try using another cable that is compatible with the PLAYSTATION®3.
  • If the video output settings on the PLAYSTATION®3 do not match those of the cable or TV in use, there may be no picture. If the screen goes blank, turn off the system.
  • Then, with only the PLAYSTATION®3 and the TV connected, touch the system's power button for more than 5 seconds to turn the system back on. The video output settings will automatically be reset to the standard resolution.
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.
if non of that works you need to contact Sony at

SOURCE: my ps3 doesn't play blue ray movies

Hi,

This is a common problem on the PS3 unfortunately and is caused by a faulty blue-ray drive. Unit will have to go back to Sony for service.

You should try a DVD cleaning disk first to be sure that dirt on the laser lense is not causing the issue.

You can also open the case and clean the laser lense with a Q Tip and an alcohol cleaning solution.

If you plan on opening the case at any stage please ensure the unit is disconnected from its power supply.

If this fails and you are confident with electronics there are several videos on YouTube showing how to replace the drive if you choose to order it and do it yourself.

See an example below.

Hope this helps. Please remember to rate my answer. Many Thanks

SOURCE: PS3 - green Bar when playing blue ray on my 50" Phillips Plasma

Green bar or border is due to wrong AV Setting. To resolve this just insert the Blue-Ray DVD and begin to play. Press the Triangle button and select "AV Setting", in AV Setting change Video Output to RGB.

Black and white picture from blu ray player


Run the Blue Ray straight to the TV and see if the picture is still in black and white. If it is you know that your reciever is fine and the problem lies in the player or the TV. If the picture is normal then you probably have a bad HDMI IC that will need to be replaced.

Bought a film (twice) as I thought the first one was defective, yet it still won't play on the blu ray machine. Can you help? All other films have been fine


If your machine plays all other blue ray discs fine, then we can rule out the machine. But if all your other discs are standard DVD movies, "meaning they not blue ray" then there is a problem with the machine. The blue ray movies require higher precision in play to show better resolution, I have encountered this many times in service. So if your machine is not the problem, the replacement disc has to be questioned.

I have the LG BD390. I have had this blue ray for sometime and never had a problem with playing blue ray movies. I just bought the new Iron Man II blue ray movie. The movie stops playing at the same...


I had the exact same problem with my BD390 and another LG home theater system, both with the current firmware updates. I noticed others have posted this issue on various sites as well. I called LG and the guy I spoke with seems to have been coached pretty well on the scenes where this problem is occuring since he could sight the exact scenes that were giving me the problem. He claimed the blu ray probably isn't exactly 1080i or 1080p and that the player is probably having problems processing the resolution so I should lower it to 720p. This didn't fix the problem and didn't help explain why my blu ray player which plays plenty of other high resolution movies only has a problem with this movie. I think a firmware update is needed to fix the issue but I'm not holding my breath that LG will be proactive in getting that out soon.

When you put in a blue ray movie the screen goes blank


Search the official playstation website for the latest update and download it to your desktop
Move the file from your desktop to an usb stick or flash card or whatever.
Plug it in your ps3 and update (Info on how to do that should be on the official PS website.)

The movie The Happening in blue ray, every time I go to play the movie or go to scenes or special features it just goes right back to the main menu within seconds and I have gotten two different blue ray...


i havnt heard of a case of just one disc not working and all the others do. so im suggesting the obvious. maybe it has something to do with the actual cd. you should try contacting someone else with blue ray and the happening and see if they are encountering the same problem. then you could specify your problem down from there.
