Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

Ps3 won't play blue ray discs

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

I need to renew my ps3 BD encryption key to watch blue ray movie


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
~good luck!

There is no colour on the movie


Make sure you have the cables hook up right. If you are running component mode it takes three for video blue red and white ends. If you are running composite it takes red, white, and yellow.

Ps3 will not play any movies


 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.

Blue ray wont play movies on new tv


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.

Tried to hook up blue ray player but it say mode not supported. It is a PS3 and will playj games but not blue raqy movies.


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.

Blue ray movie not clear


The refresh rate of the TV is not fast enough! For very high resolution viewing, a very fast refresh rate is required.
