Ps3 Won't Play Blu Ray movies

6 replies 1985 views Edited Oct 21, 2011

I have a Ps3 Slim and it plays Ps3 games aswell as dvds but it won't play Blu Ray movies.

I can put a blu ray movie in and it will play but take it out and try an hour later and it will not play.

It's only the movies the ps3 games work fine.

What happens is I put the movie in then it starts sounding like its working then after a minute it sounds like it ejects the movie but it doesn't and the ps3 just keeps sounding like its trying to work.

Any help  or ideas would be appreciated.

The newer PS3 models require HDMI for blurays.  That would be my guess, since you didn't say specifically if it's a new system and how it's connected.

Sorry, It is about 2 years old at the most and I do have it hooked up with a HDMI cable.

I figured it was something wrong with the Ps3 since you can hear it trying to read the disc.

I put the same movie in about 2 hours later and it worked fine so I am at a loss.

It seems to not work for whatever blu-ray I want to watch.

I tried to put Big Lebowski in didn't work but i put in RED and it worked then put in The Dark Knight and it didn't work then put RED back in and it didn't work then put in Big Lebowski and it didnt work then put in Pans Labyrinth and it worked then took it out and tried again a it didn't.

It seems to be completely random since I have watched Big Lebowski bout 15 times and this is the 1st time for it not to work but every other movie seems to work when I don't want to watch it but when I do it doesn't.

It's also only Blu-Ray movies the Ps3 games work fine as do DvDs.

Did you get it from a different country?  Games are region free but movies aren't all.  Otherwise I'd guess your laser is dying.

I read on another post I found on google to go to video settings and change the 1080p 24Hz Output (HDMI) from automatic to off.

This seems to work as I just put all my Blu Ray movies and they all worked fine.

I am not sure why but I'm glad they work thanks for the help though JERM7 I appreciate it.

Thanks, this worked for me, too. Brand new super slim with Iron Man 2 BD. It would show the splash menu screen, then no signal. Changed 1080p 24Hz Output to 'off', and working fine now.
