I have a ps3 hooked up to my lcd tv via composite
Received my 5 free blue ray movies last week, and watched one with no problem
now the same movie or any new one will begin spinning, but my screen is black and with intermittent scratching noises as if the disk is intermittently reading little sound bites.
Anyone come across this? Is the quality of the movies or something internal with the ps3?
Games play fine

turn off parental controls on x box and tv if they are avalible on your tv. then you can watch any movie you want. go to menu then system set and you should see parental controls there. hope this helps
Some newer blu ray discs require that your system be updated to view the movie. This is due to a security "encryption" set by various movie companies. (they are trying to prevent people from copying their movies).
If your PS3 is connected to the internet this should be done automatically when trying to view the movie.
hope it helps
think your lens may be very dirty. And also please tell if the problem is only with this movie or all the other movies as well? moreover, if your lens is dirty, you'll have to clean it using a lens cleaner, OR get it replaced lens). I got my PlayStation's lens replaced when it was giving me trouble and all was fine after that. Best of luck.
Are you sure the tv is 1080p capable? Usually when "mode is not supported" is displayed, it means that the tv can not handle the signal format that is being input to it. If you are using HDMI, then signal formatting is usually handled automatically. If you are using component video, you will probably have to tell the PS3 to step down the signal to either 1080i or 720p.
First of all, you have to tell the PS3 what connection you are using. Next, the Blu-Ray format is encoded in 1080p, so if your tv does not support 1080p you will have to go in to the setup menu on the PS3 and tell it to use a format your TV can handle.
