Blu Ray issues

[ Edited ]
6 replies 89 views Edited Dec 16, 2012

Newbski here. Brother gave me his old broken ps3 a couple years ago and am now just getting around to play with it. I'm not a gamer so I was never in a rush to do anything with it. I was looking at picking up a blu ray player and remembered I had this laying around. A laser replacement would cost just as much as a cheap dedicated player so figured i'd look into fixing it. So.....

I just replaced the laser/dock in a 40gb fatty and am having an issue. I updated to the newest firmware and I've turned off the 1080p/24hz in settings and it's still not picking up the *clean* spiderman 3 blu ray(Only BR disc). Games and regular dvds work fine. I'll also add the the clock on the top right spins for 20~ seconds once loaded and that I hear the drive spin 5 seperate times during that period. Nothing happens.  Whats the deal?

PS3 games work?

Have you tried a different Blu-ray? PS3 games are on Blu-ray disc so if the PS3 can read those there is no reason why it cannot play movies.

I only had my brother bring over one br movie and one game just to make sure my fix worked. I was kinda thinking the movie was "bad", but from what i've read it was unlikely so I assumed it was a setting or something else I overlooked in the settings.

Curious as to why you turned off the 1080p/24Hz setting.  This is the format that Blu-ray movies play back at.

A lot of the threads i've read says to turn it off if having only blu ray movie issues.

I'll add that i've tried it with composite,component and hdmi cable on both a standard and hdtv.

Just wanted to update the thread.

Spiderman 3 failed to work(Only BR I had) as I noted earlier, it's been bothering me so I stopped and picked up "The Campaign". It's now working as it should! Thanks for the help.

Just a quick thought and I don't want to say this (forgive me) but never factor out software/ hardware, as one or the other or both, can cause all types of issues.
