Acoustic Solutions 26'' HD TV cannot play PS3 blue ray films

Games all work fine but cannot get any films to play - All I get is a blank screen with no sound. I have tried Blue Ray films which even say suitable for PS3. Don't seem to be able to change any settings on PS3 or TV to make them work.

I have recently brought the same TV and had the same problem but I've mangaed to find a soultion.

The automatic setting for Blu Ray on PS3 is Full HD (1080p) but the Acoustic Solutions TV is HD ready (720p). For PS3 games it will automattically change settings for you to 720p. This is why this works straight away but Blu Ray doesn't.

Solution

You need to plug in your PS3 using the scart contection, then on the ps3 menu go to settings > display settings > HDMI. You will then need to attach the HDMI cable and manually set up
HDMI by checking the 720p option and deselect 1080p.

That should then play Blu Rays too. You don't lose too much quality as 720p works nearly as well as 1080p on smaller TVs.

Crank 2 blue ray plays in a small square

Hi, Ref common problem with Blu-ray players only playing crank 2 in a small section of the screen. It seems the film needs extra buffer memory on your player. If you have a card reader slot, ie USB or SD, put in a blank card and the film plays fine. I have Panasonic DMP-BD35 which has a SD slot on the front, i used a 32MB card and the film played with no problems. Hope this info helps.
Regards. Rob.

PS3 wont load or play games, Just a blank screen.....

Try playing a Demo game, if you dont have any download it from playstation network. The point is just to force the sytem to play games and if you notice, movies and games are listed under a different folder in the icon's list, so playing a demo game will force the system to play the game and you should be able to play your games fine after that,. Thing is that a game's info might've got stuck in freeze mode when the system was shut off unproperly while a game disk was still inside, that's all. Good luck, dont wanna see any PS3 comrades suffering the unspeakable horridness of not been able to play games. Be strong my friend.

PS3 wont play load games, have blue ray and normal dvd play

You can try cleaning the laser lens with a cd / dvd lens cleaner cd.

This usually doesn't work, your problem is 98% of the time caused by a Sony defect in the blu-ray drive itself.

The drive will gradually get worse and worse.

If your system is under warranty then by all means get it repaired by Sony for free otherwise you're looking to pay $150 for Sony to repair their own mistake.

You can reach them @ 1-800-345-SONY

They'll probably suggest another System Restore, Firmware update and a 100 other solutions that won't work because it's hardware related.

Sorry for the bad news.

Ps3 plays video games, not bluray movies or dvds

I would start with a firmware update (2.60) and also a full system restore. That should fix the problem. Let me know. I'm a PS3 expert!

Games run on hdmi, but not Blu-ray movies

You most likely have the updated drivers. You may have to go and change a setting. I found an answer on the PS3 website that may be of some use to you. I hope this helps you: http://boardsus.playstation.com/playstation/board/message?board.id=ps3&message.id=1662191 From the site: "go to bd/dvd setting and set the "108024hz" option off"
