Trouble connceting playstation 3 console to my Samsung LN32A450 32-Inch
Im having trouble connecting my playstation 3 game console to my tv via HDMI cable, for some reason when I play my games I get this image flicker, for example on vertical and horizontal lines they flicker, I've tried checking if the HDMI cable is securely placed in the console and the tv, and its not that, I've tried putting the hdmi cable in all of the 3 hdmi ports my tv has and i get the same results, and on the playstation 3 display settings your supposed to check off every resolution your tv supports I check off the 480p, and the 720p becuase thats what my tv supports at least I think so, My question is how do you change the tvs resolution to match the game your playing, and my other questions are Do i need a new HDMI cable? or what is the right HDMI cable to use for this certain TV set?

If you are able to connect your PS3 to another TV using the same HDMI cable that would rule out your PS3, if it works.....or
does the PS3 itself have any settings that perhaps need to be set to an HDMI output as opposed to Composite or SCART etc?
Also have a look at the HDMI settings in theh TV menu too.
plug the ps in with power cable only no hdmi. When turning on Hold down the power button until you hear a second set of beeps you have now reset the video settings. Turn the console off and plug in your hdmi and switch back on it should now work.
Right what you do is, connect your hdmi cable to your ps3 and yr hd t.v. once you have done that you need to also plug in the defeault cable the one with red,yellow, and white cables on. then it should come up with found hdmi. then turn over to the hdmi chanel on your remote, and it should say al this s**t, just click yes yes yes............................ etc. and yr offff
Make sure game disk is clean and scratch free. Try and hook up the video with original AV cables (Red,Wht,Ywl) and unplug HDMI.Try another HDMI cable. If none of these help you could have bigger problems. Good Luck.
I don't think there is a way to set your resolution manually, bro. They do it all by auto. If I may make a suggestion... Turn off both the TV & PS3. Unplug your HDMI, then make sure both your TV & PS3 are turned ON. Now re-connect your HDMI. A TV tech once told me that these units "communicate" through the HDMI. This can only occure whilst they're up & running. This may help get you going on to 1080i.
p.s. PS3 games only output 720p, max! This isn't always the case for Blu Ray movies, but it is for games. Good luck!
ok here's what you do. Hook up your ps3 to your hd via hdmi cable then turn the tv on first. Then turn the power on to your ps3 and switch tv to hdmi. wait a while then a screen should come up and you should see and screen where it says an hdmi device is connected do u want to accept theses settings say yes. sometimes the "handshake" doesn't happen properly. If u already know this or have tried this it could be that your tv needs a firmware update, happened to me.
