I have the opposite problem. I don't have the remote, it broke, and I'm stuck on channels when I want to play a game. How do I fix that without the remote?!

SOURCE: problem watching movies & playing games(screen flashes black on & off

HI
This may not help, but you can try to lower the resloution to another widescreen format.
I'm thinking you may have your resolution maxed out and the video card is having problems with the movie games because of that. Possibly not enough video memory
Movies will work fine at lower resolutions, Not sure about all the games but they probably will too.

SOURCE: Games sometimes play, then won't load, black screen.

try to make sure that the resolution and connections are appropriate for your screen at your home. if these settings are alreay correct then you should probably just return the system and try to get one from somewhere like amazon or ebay. sorry. Hope you get a good ps3!

1. The hum you hear is probably the heat-sink fan, sometimes if you get some compressed air and use it in the bottom air vents it will go away.

I just want a little more info on the Netflix issue. Just to confirm I'm on the same page as you.
When you are trying to use Netflix are you using the PS3 web browser or signing into PSN?
The reason I ask is that in order to use Netflix on a PS3 you have to sign into the PSN with the email aand password you would use to play a online and the download the Netflix program from PSN, after install would then choose the Netflix icon and then use the sign on info required by Netflix. If you have done all of this, try doing a factory reset on your modem/router. I run Netflix on my console too and with the PS3 you won't need a authorization code to access your account.

If none of this works let me know.

Can only get Netflix and not TV


Easy Ways to Get Netflix & Other Video Streaming Services On Your TV Smart TVs: If you've bought a television from LG, Panasonic, Samsung, Vizio or any number of other manufacturers in the past few years, it might be an Internet-enabled Smart TV offering access to services like Netflix, Amazon Instant Video, and Hulu Plus at the very least Blu-ray Players: Like some televisions, many Blu-ray players are now "smart," offering access to streaming services. A few video streaming apps, like Netflix, may come preloaded. Others you may have to download and install. If you already have one of these smart Blu-ray players, you may not need an additional streaming device. Game Consoles: PlayStations 3 and 4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One, and Wii U all offer streaming basics: Netflix, Amazon Instant Video, YouTube and Hulu. Xbox offers the most-64 channels including HBO Go, Showtime Anywhere, Starz Play, CBS Sports, MLB.TV, Nat Geo TV, Vudu, Sling TV and many others.Smartphones, Tablets and laptops: If you have a newer smartphone and TV made by the same manufacturer, there might be a screen mirroring setting such as Samsung's AllShare or LG's Miracast on both devices. This enables you to cast whatever's on your smartphone to your TV. For laptops, just plug it into your TV with an HDMI cable. Or, if you want to go wireless, check to see if your laptop and TV support WiDi, Wireless Display.

Why don't the movies work right?


Is it a DVD you're trying to play? It sounds like a dirty/scratched DVD. If you're trying to stream from the internet, I'm amazed it let you play anything at all. If you're trying to stream from a website, it will hardly ever work. It will work great from Netflix, or Hulu plus, but never directly from a website. The PS3 simply can't handle it.

Can not play movies


Do you mean you're attempting to watch a DVD or Blu-ray disc or a movie through software like Netflix or Hulu Plus? The Wii will only play Wii (and Gamecube if it is an older system) game discs.

My playstation volume wont work.what should i do?


Try changing the PS3 Sound output settings, check the cables leading to the console and TV, and if that doesn't solve it, watch another movie, then come back to the original. If it is one movie in particular, you may want to contact Netflix online at netflix.com/youraccount. Here, you can click the "Report problem" next to movies you've watched recently to tell Netflix about the issue.

Many new models of high-definition Blu-Ray disc players already have Netflix applications. Several different manufacturers include this application, from high-end brands like Philips and Panasonic to generic brands like Vizio and Insignia. These players often include other popular internet applications, such as Facebook and Pandora Internet Radio. Also, new TiVo digital video recorder models have a built-in Netflix application.
