Hi ericparvin,

Since you haven't specify what it is you are trying to do or play, I'm assuming from the error that you are getting, maybe you are trying to stream your media to your PS3. if that is the case, reboot your PC or source system then reboot your PS3 console as well.

Since PS3 has playback limitations, what I usually recommend is the PS3 Media Server, you can get it here:

just download the latest version then install it on your PC, run it. it will automatically search for the PS3 console on the network, once found. go to the PS3 XMB and look for PS3 Media Server Icon. it will even encode mkv files but you need a beef up system.

Hope that helps, if you still have problems post here.

How to use hdmi on galaxy tab 2 7.0

Galaxy tab2 has no HDMI connection. If you want to watch recorded video and pictures on TV you will a) need to down All Share app from Google Play (also called Samsung Link) to the Tab 2 and b) have a TV that supports DNLA connectivity. You then use All Share to play video on that TV through Wi Fi over DNLA.

Look up the program called playon. I have been using it for 3 years and its pretty good. You need at least a high DSL speed, cable modem is great. You also need a decent computer, although I bought a acer notebook from walmart for $250 as a dedicated playon server and it worked well. And finally you need a DNLA compatible player to connect to your tv. Some TVs have this built in if it is able to be put on the home network. PS3 ,360, Wii are all able to fine DNLA servers on the network. Sony made a bluray that was also able to find DNLA servers and that is what I use. However the new PS4 I've read is not DNLA capable, so newer sony bluray may not also. Basically playon collectes videos from free sites and logs them. You pull up the playon server on the TV with whatever device you are using to connect it to the tv. Now just scroll through the all of them until you get what you are looking for, click and it plays.

Won't play a blue ray disc

The blueray eye is out. You will need a new blueray player. The only problem with that is the ps3 will only respond with the orginal parts it came with. ( i.e. motherboard blueray player ) So the best bet is to buy a broken blueray player and take the eye out and replace it with yours just the eye not the whole thing.

My new homefront ps3 will play on my friends playstation but will not play on mine help

If it won't play online what you'll need to do is set a static ip in your router for your ps3 and then open ports TCP Ports: 80, 443, 5223, and 10070 - 10080
UDP Ports: 3478, 3479, 3658, and 10070
(you'll need to contact your router about that)

If it won't play AT ALL follow these steps ( ) to get into safe mode and select option 3.

If NONE of your PS3 games work and NONE of your blu rays work, your blu ray drive is fried and you'll need to get it fixed. You can go to: to get it fixed.
