Playing games on my PS3 is fine, but when I put in a Blu-ray, the picture is very blurry, unwatchable. I've tried different HDMI cables, PS3's, using different inputs, but nothing helps. If I use component cables it's fine, but the picture isn't as clear as it only broadcasts 780p. Sony has suggested that I use a silver plated HDMI cable, but I can't locate one.

Make sure that your firmware is updated correctly. Also make sure the games are the correct region for the unit you're playing on. You may have an incorrect region setup on the PS3. PS3 games are region locked, either being PAL or NTSC. If the PS3 is set to read PAL (by being set to a region that is PAL, like the UK, Europe, and Japan) it will not read or play an NTSC disc.
Misconfigured or corrupted firmware installations can also cause this problem. Furthermore, pirated games will not play, because they do not have the appropriate security key on the disc.
You can try testing this by creating a new profile on the PS3 and trying to play the games. If you can play them with the new profile, then there is a corruption with the old profile. If you can't play them in the new profile, then it could be the firmware.
Lastly you may have a blown drive. Most PS3 games are dual layer blu ray discs capable of storing large amounts of data. The blu ray drive in the PS3 uses a sequenced dual laser to read the game. If one of the laser emitters has blown, it won't read the game correctly. However, since it doesn't use both emitters to read blu ray movie disks or dvds they'll still play correctly.
I have not personally experienced this problem but reading up on the problem looks like changing the blu ray at 24hz setting (if on turn off and vice versa) resolves the issue. Other than than double check to ensure you are not set up for component in the settings, if that fails may want to replace your HDMI cable as it is not carrying the sound signal as it should.
Tries tv unplug replug it back like an hour later for a tv resetting itself.The HDMI (2) port might be working again.Just used the PS3 game system only conennected it in the different tv ports of for the HDMIS ports provided by the tv.U know this wright?The PS3 game system play all this funsctions.CD-Audio only,DVD movies and old PS1 games,some PS3 system may,may not support and play old PS2 games,All Blu Ray movies and All PS3 Blu Ray games.
Could be an overheating issue.. Is there enough air circulation around the unit? Is it possibly dusty? try and perform minor servicing (use a can of compressed air incase if there's dust causing problems)
You are Partially right.
Ps3 actually work with 2 different diode laser inside.one 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
