My Playstation 3 won't play DVDs

7 Replies 8,397 Views Created 03-01-2010

I just got a PS3, the slim 120GB version. I also got myself a monitor screen to have a better experience of the console. I use a DVI to HDMI cable to connect the console to the screen.

 

I tried my games and they worked fine. Then I put a DVD in but the screen ends up telling me "No Signal". I don't understand, if it plays the games, how come it can't play the DVD?

 

Unfortunately I don't have a blu-ray disc to try it on the console to see if it works or not...

 

Did anybody else come across this sort of problem?

 

Can anybody help me?

Howdy, listen this may not work, although it is definitely worth a shot.

 

Go to the Video Settings under the Settings column, select BD 1080p 24hz OUTPUT (hdmi), turn this option OFF.

 

Otherwise try lowering the resolution temporarily in the Display Settings folder.

 

Good Luck.

Sorry sir, but you must stand corrected. The PlayStation 3 120gb , referred to as the Slimline, can play the following: DVDs (Region 4/All), Blu-Rays (Region B/Multi), PlayStation 3 Games (All), PlayStation One games (PAL) and Audio CDs.

 

As you mentioned, it does not play PlayStation 2 games. I hope this helps. :)

My PS3 Console is connected to an Acer  monitor, the Slim PS3's do play DVD, but only with real TV's. Computer monitor will allow blu-ray media only, because computer monitors have one resolution, and when dvdsor play tv are used the monitor will say, 'no signal' or 'input not supported' this is because the ps3 automatically changeto a lower resolution for dvds and play tv. hope this helps. ciao

could you possibly set the dsiplay settings manually rather than auto and only have 1 or 2 resolutions ticked, forcing the ps3 to play dvd out at a certain res?
