Sony PlayStation - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support


The blueray eye is out. You will need a new blueray player. The only problem with that is the ps3 will only respond with the orginal parts it came with. ( i.e. motherboard blueray player ) So the best bet is to buy a broken blueray player and take the eye out and replace it with yours just the eye not the whole thing.

hello,
message indicating that the encryption key needs to be renewed is displayed, update the system software to the latest version. The encryption key will then be automatically renewed.
i hope i have helped let me know how it works

This is a software compatibility issue, it's easily fixed by connecting the PS3 to the internet, logging into your PSN account and running a system update. It will update the software and get you a new encryption key. It's part of the movie's copy protection.

The only way to renew the encryption key is, unfortunately, to connect to the internet. Sorry.

You may have to renew the AACS encryption key to play content such as movies on commercially available BD video software (BD-ROM). If a message indicating that the encryption key needs to be renewed is displayed, update the system software to the latest version. The encryption key will then be automatically renewed.
AACS (Advanced Access Control System) is a copyright-protection technology that is used on Blu-ray Discs. The copyrighted content is protected by setting an encryption key on both the disc and the device used to play the disc.
An AACS encryption key expires in 12 to 18 months and must be renewed. There may also be other times when the key has to be renewed. in the manual

Yes it does have wireless internet. Go to the beginning of the cross bar menu, where system update is. and scroll down, you will see network options.

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!

No, you can't change the region codes. If at all possible I would take it back to the store and slap the salesperson!!!

Failing that, all games are not region coded, so you can play aus games on that machine. It seems the only thing it won't play is some blueray discs.

You have to get that specific region dvd player.
And no u cannot change the regional code.

Search for the regional code on the back of ur dvd cover.. should be though 1 through 6.

ps3's are region free for gaming, However, certain functionality specific to the game title may be disabled and unreliable if your game is not from the same region as your playstation 3 system. the blueray dvd will only play your specific country region film dvd discs.

Try using a lens cleaning disc. If that doesn't help your PS3's disc drive is probably dying. Time to call Sony support...

Sony Playstation... | Answered on Jan 07, 2020


it could be that your blu-ray lens is dirty (the easiest fix) try cleaning it with disk cleaner... or if u know how opening up ur system and cleaning the lense physically... if that didn't work it could be that ur blu-ray might be dead...

If the TV was originally set up on an HDTV via HDMI cables you'll have to reset the video/audio outputs on the PS3. When you turn the PS3 on hold your finger down on the button until it beeps a second time, then remove your finger and let the console restart. That should reset the PS3's video output.

Hold the power button for 10 sec's and you'll see the picture again.
