    Just to clarify on the problem .....



    my PS3 has been doin fine all along. Previously, i have only been using it to play games. I am connecting my PS3 to my HDTV (up to 1080i), using HDMI cable. Sound wise, I have an optic cable that runs from PS3 to my amp separately. In regular game play, I have no problems at all, running HDMI in 1080i mode.



    Now, the problem is I just got a couple of blu ray discs. My PS3 boots up without problems. But once it starts to play the disc (it sounds like it trys to change resolutions), and the screen turns green and black! I have heard of various people having this problem, but all of them were trying to use blu ray on SDTV. I know that the signal is 1080i, because my tv detects it as such. but the screen is GREEN!!!!

To fix this problem, in your PS3 menu go to Setings, BD/DVD Settings then change BD 1080p 24 Hz Output (HDMI) to "Off" (you probably have it in Automatic). Try you BD movies now.
Hope it helps :)

SOURCE: not reading blu ray disc

First off you will need to back up your ps3 system. To do this, first insert a USB memory stick and then go to System Settings and then Backup, then select the USB memory stick. If the backup gives an error then your have too much information on the PS3 so grab the important things such as save data from the game folder.

You can go to saved data and then go to each saved file and press triangle and select copy. If the save data is grouped in folders then you can press square to ungroup the data and then its easier to copy as you will have to do it one by one. If you have any music files or video that is not saved anywhere else then you may want to back that up too. 

After all the data is backed up then go to System Settings and select Restore PS3 System (There is also Restore Default Settings just above it but that didn't work for me.) The PS3 will ask to format the Hard Disk. This means everything will be gone (If the backup worked then you can restore it all later but if it did not then you will have to reconfigure your Playstation the way it was. Select Quick Format. The PS3 will restart after a few seconds and will start up the way it did when you first got it. After Configuring the initial setup, insert a game and check to see if it works. If it does then restore the backup if it worked or restore the game saves and other data, then set up the PS3 with your old settings. 

If the game does not work then you are going to have to call sony while beside your PS3 and tell them you tried the Restore PS3 System option, have your Receipt from purchase at hand or else you will not be able to arrange an exchange under warranty.

Good luck.

SOURCE: PS3 wont go 1080i/720p

I don't think there is a way to set your resolution manually, bro. They do it all by auto. If I may make a suggestion... Turn off both the TV & PS3. Unplug your HDMI, then make sure both your TV & PS3 are turned ON. Now re-connect your HDMI. A TV tech once told me that these units "communicate" through the HDMI. This can only occure whilst they're up & running. This may help get you going on to 1080i.
p.s. PS3 games only output 720p, max! This isn't always the case for Blu Ray movies, but it is for games. Good luck!

Why wont my samsung dvd-vr357 play blu ray disks


Educated guess is you need a blu ray player. I have several very expensive Pioneer Elite DVD players and they cannot play blu ray. Blu ray is a multi level glorified DVD which you need at least a blu ray player to play in almost all cases.

You can play dvds on a blue ray but not the reverse in most cases. If you play a dvd on a blu ray player it kicks the video up to HD for the DVD.

see this steps and fix it. God bless you
    • 1 Reset the player if the device stops behaving normally. (Keep in mind that rotation sounds and picture issues during search are normal.) Select the "System" menu from the setup area and choose "Restore Factory Settings" or a similar option. Allow the device to restart and then try the disc again.
    • 2 Insert the disc face up in the tray. If playback fails to start or if it starts and then stops, wipe the disc with a soft cloth and try again. Throw out any heavily scratched discs that won't play.
    • 3 Change the "TV Aspect" to 16:9 in the setup area of the menu if the picture expands left and right or if the picture size is wrong and you're using an HDMI (High Definition Multimedia Interface) cable.
    • 4 Set the wireless Internet router to automatically allow new devices to connect to it if the Insignia player won't connect to the Internet. The player uses only WPS to connect. Some routers that use different automatic setup protocols won't work.
    • 5 Make sure that the connection between the player and the television uses an HDMI cable if you're watching a Blu-ray movie. Some Blu-ray discs will only play over an HDMI connection. Also, remember that some Blu-ray discs won't work with PiP (Picture-in-Picture).

Saw 3d only plays in 2d ,is the lg bd370 capable of suporting 3d?


Simple answer: no. It uses HDMI 1.3 which has insufficient bandwidth for 3D.

There's no firmware upgrade to HDMI 1.4 which would enable 3D either, so your only fix is to upgrade the player or to contact LG Customer Support in your country to ask whether they are planning to release a firmware upgrade. Given that your machine is an older, basic, and obsolete model it's unlikely to have the required hardware to cope with 3D though.

I hope that you've found my answer to be of use, if so then please take a moment to rate my reply.

Won't play 1080p discs?


From this problem's description I have to assume that either the blu ray player will not play blu rays or the blu ray player will play blu rays but only in 1080i/720p or that you want to know if this blu ray player supports the 1080p resolution.

If the blu ray player is not playing blu rays then you update the firmware and try multiple purchased discs to make sure nothing is wrong with the ones you have been trying. If blu rays that played once will no longer play, then you will need to reset the blu ray player from its menu and possibly by holding down the power button on the front of the unit until the word reset displays on the unit before trying to play the disc again.

If the television is not showing 1080p make sure you are connected with an hdmi cable and that it is the right version hdmi cable for this blu ray player and for your television. Make sure you have chosen 1080p as the resolution to display in the blu ray player's menu. If all of that has been done and 1080p will still not display then it is a case of incompatibility between manufacturers--Sharp and whatever the television is. It would display in 1080p on a Sharp television and most likely on a Samsung and Sony as well. With other brands and even some models of the aforementioned brands (except for Sharp) its a toss up.

General Troubleshooting: Back to top
  • Confirm the disc is clean
    • To clean a disc, use lint-free cleaning cloths made specifically for cleaning discs, sold at computer software stores. When cleaning the disc, we recommend starting from the innermost circle, and wiping out to the edge in a straight line. We do not recommend wiping in a circular motion, as it may create more scratches on the disc.
    • Note: Other materials, such as a paper towel or a T-shirt, may also scratch the disc. If there are any scratches, smudges, or fingerprints on the disc, it may not function properly. Also, do not use or insert any CD/DVD drive cleaners into the PLAYSTATION 3 as doing so may cause damage to the system.
  • Try a different disc
    • Try playing different Blu-ray Discs, DVDs, or CDs on the PLAYSTATION 3 console to see if the problem exists across multiple discs.
  • Try a different PLAYSTATION®3
    • To determine if the problem is with the disc itself, try playing the disc on a different PLAYSTATION®3 system, (or a PlayStation®2 computer entertainment system, PS one™ console, or a standalone CD/DVD player, if applicable).
  • Confirm that you are not using any game modification devices
    • Unlicensed devices such as game modification devices can interfere with the proper function of the software. We do not recommend the use of any game modification devices or unlicensed products.
    • Note: Sony Computer Entertainment America (SCEA) recommends only using products that are licensed for use with PlayStation� products. If the product you are using is neither made by, nor licensed by, SCEA for use on the PS3 system, we recommend you discontinue the use of that product. Please keep in mind products that fail to meet or exceed SCEA's strict quality standards can cause damage to the PS3 system immediately, or with prolonged use. SCEA is not responsible for damages caused by untested, unlicensed products, and any remaining Limited SonyWarranty on the product will be considered void. It is the responsibility of the company that manufactured the unlicensed product to accommodate you, should their product cause damage to an SCEA product.
  • Turn off the BD 1080p 24Hz Output(HDMI) option
    • f the Blu-ray Disc� does not support 1080p 24Hz video mode, the video output may not display properly. Go to [BD 1080p 24Hz Output(HDMI)] under icn_settings.gif Settings icon (Settings) > [BD/DVD Settings] and select "Off".
  • Confirm that the disc you want to play is supported by the PS3™ system
    • View what disc media is supported by the PS3 system.
    • Macrovision Information (for DVD copyright protection)
      • If the PLAYSTATION 3 is connected to the television through a VCR, you may not be able to view DVD movies. This is because of the copyright protection coding that has been programmed into the discs by the DVD manufacturers. If the PS3 system is installed directly to a VCR or TV/VCR combo, please try connecting the PS3 system directly to the TV's video/audio inputs for DVD movie playback.
    • HDCP Compliancy (for Blu-ray Disc with video content)
      • If using HDMI cables, confirm whether the disc you are trying to play has High-Bandwidth Digital Content Protection (HDCP) built in. If so, confirm that the TV or display you are using is also HDCP compliant. Copyright-protected Blu-ray video discs can only be output at 1080p using an HDMI cable connected to a device that is compatible with the HDCP standard.
    • Advanced Access Content System (AACS) for Blu-ray Disc content
      • Blu-ray Disc uses the Advanced Access Content System (AACS) for audio/video content protection. If the Blu-ray Disc does not play, you may need to update your PLAYSTATION 3 to the latest system software to ensure the latest AACS keys have been updated.
      • To learn more about AACS, visit our Consumer Alerts page on AACS.
If the PLAYSTATION 3 does not recognize the disc: Back to top
  • Remove the disc and reinsert it.
  • If the disc has a label, insert it with the label side up.
  • Check whether the disc is scratched or dirty. If dirty, wipe it gently with a soft cloth.
  • Make sure the disc has not been exposed to high temperatures, high humidity or direct sunlight. When discs will not be used for an extended period of time, store them in their cases. Stacking uncased discs or storing them at an angle can cause them to warp.
  • DVD-R/DVD-RW/DVD+R/DVD+RW discs that have not been finalized cannot be played.
  • When outputting DVD content or PLAYSTATION 3 format software in SD resolution, only discs recorded in the NTSC standard can be played.
if non of that works you need to contact Sony at

Mon - Sat 6:00AM - 8:00PM PST
Sun 7:00AM - 6:30PM PST

Good Luck,
