Some films were filmed at an aspect ratio greater than that of your TV so you will see black bars on top and bottom of the screen. These are normal. 1.78 is 16:9 so it will fill up the screen but most hollywood blockbusters are filmed at 2.35 so they have scope aspect. TV shows on bluray will for the most part have your 16:9 ratio. Everything's fine so don't worry.

Why wont my PS3 play any blueray games or movies?


Try using a lens cleaning disc. If that doesn't help your PS3's disc drive is probably dying. Time to call Sony support...

My ps3 will not read any ps3 disk but it will read movies whats wrong?


I would see if it reads blueray MOVIES, if not it could be a problem with the blueray reader. In that case I would see if you can locate one of those cleaning discs with a brush on it to clean the laser or contact sony to see if your console is under warranty.

Playstation will play ps2 games movies an cds but wont play my ps3 games


Hey Ron,

What happens you put a ps3 disc in the drive? Does it not register at all? Does it read BLUERAY movies because if so it should read games as well.

My ps3 has a hard time reading ps3 games but doesnt have a problem reading anything else.


Have you tryed to play a BlueRay movie? PS3 games are stored on BlueRay so it might play DVD's and CD's, but the BlueRay's laser diode could be burning out.

My ps3 games will not play at all will play bluerays but will not recognise any game at all


Laser is bad in the drive which is why it will recognize bluerays but not games. Laser requires different strengths to read certain discs and if the laser is weak in any way then it won't be able to read certain discs. You can get new lasers on Ebay or even replace the whole drive which you can get on Ebay as well.

I can only watch Blu-Ray discs in letterbox format and no other


I had the same problem. What you need to do is change your aspect ratio on your TV. Should be on your TV remote. While you wont get a full screen mode you will get very close. I cant remember what aspect I switch my plasma too I think Full mode. Anyways hope this helps.
