PS3, The amazing device by sony also has some common problems like Xbox and Wii have. But good news is that these all problems can be repaired with the help of many DIY Guides, one such guide available at PS3 Repair Blog

Maybe it isn't a problem with your ps3, but with the tv. Try resetting it, or asking help in the store you bought it.
Resetting a tv is mostly done by cutting of power for 15 - 30 minutes. Be sure to read the manual.

I am trying to commect to my PS3 to an LG LCD tv which supports 1080P (Full HD). but as the game starts and when i check the TV it says 720P although the game and the TV both supports full HD. Do i need...


Hello there. There's a few possibilities. First, the obvious, do you have it set to 1080P in the Display Settings options? Secondly, are you using an HDMI cable? You need to be using HDMI to play games in full 1080P. I use the component cables (The red, green and blue ones) for my PS3 and when I'm on the XMB (that's the PS's desktop so to speak) it's displayed in 1080P but games will not play in 1080P, only 720P. Any old HDMI cable will do the trick, so don't get suckered by the price if you are going to pick up a cable!

I had ps3 hooked up to 720p tv then hooked it up to 1080p moniter now it won't show a picture on 720p tv


you have to switch it back to 720p mode before disconnecting it from the 1080p television. If you're using HDMI, and then switching back to the a/v connectors, then you have to switch the output settings of the ps3 from hdmi to a/v as well.

PS3 static on screen


It sounds like you're carrying interference to your TV. Try moving you station away from any power source. Make sure your hdmi cable is away from any power as well. This may also be a ground issue. Plug your ps3 power brick into a different outlet.

It sucks to see ALLLLLLL these solutions, when I have the solution. Turn off DEEP COLOR in the video settings. It will immediately stop. If it doesn't, then you don't have the typical snow/flickering problem.

I have a ps3 i had it hooked up to a 46" samsung 1080p, then i drove 2 miles with ps3 in box and hooked up to a mitsubishi 1080i 52" tv and i could only see part of the ps3 screen either in game...


tv's are difffrent and the ps3 knows that.
You need to adjust the settings on the ps3 or on the tv.
It still works at your home correct?
If so its just a compatability issue with your ps3 and trying
to get it to work on another tv.. It thinks its still 1080p when its actually 2 miles down the road on a 1080i

Go to your system settins on your ps3 and change them to work on a 1080i

Good luck

And if you have anymore questions or if this dosn't work, please feel free to ask

Ps3 reset


turn the PS3 off. hold the power button for at least 5 seconds or until you hear another beep.
This should reset all your ps3's settings.  If you have an HDMI connection, wait for a couple of seconds so that the PS3 recognizes and negotiates the right video output for your TV.
