How to Fix the Problem that PS3 Won't Play DVD?

1. Reset to the factory default settings and see whether you can play a DVD.

2. Go to Settings Menu > Display Settings > Video Output Settings > HDMI > Custom, enable the resolution options required for DVD. Or you can tick all resolution options and test the resolution display until it works.

3. The DVD is region-locked. If you find you fail to play some DVDs but can play others, the possible reason is the DVD is copy protected. You can confirm the region code of the DVD, and adjust the region code setting of PS3 to the same region code with it. Please note that the region code setting for PS3 can be changed a maximum of 4 times. So I recommend you to remove the region code of DVD with a DVD ripper.
