Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

Hi guys, Perhaps you could help me out here with my situation. I had a PS3 (20G) for quite a while and everything was fine and dandy until the Blu-ray lazer failed on it. I went and purchased a second hand PS3 off my mate (60G) and my problem now is anytime i connect the PS3 to the tv it wont come up on any channel. My previous PS3 still comes up perfect on AV1 and when i connect the new one, the screen flickers but no proper image. The AV port on the new PS3 is slightly more left than the other PS3 but i don't think that should make a difference. Please help me? This situation is breaking my heart.

Do you have the jumper switches set correctly? I can't think of anything else, unless you got a defective one. There's nothing to do but set the jumpers and plug it in.

PS3 Freezes with all blu-ray type discs.

You are Partially right.
Ps3 actually work with 2 different diode laser is Blue and one is red and both working on 2 separate circuit but with the same coil.i do believe the blue diode is dead or defective and that`s why you are able to read dvd(regular one) but no blu ray dvd or ps3 games.Try to clean your lens or replace your laser and you will resolve your problem
