    its the same as the other guy's problem. TV goes up to 1080p, put when u set it 2 1080p it says "invalid format". So it will only work on 1080i

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.

Dynex HDTV says not supported when PS3 is connected via HDMI


Have you tried changing the video output settings on the PS3? It may just be on a setting that the TV does not support. For instance, if the poutput setting is 1080P, and the TV only supports up to 1080i, you would get a "not supported" signal. Hook the ps3 to a tv that it works on...turn it on, go to settings- display settings-output settings- select HDMI as the connector type- if it asks for 3D tv size...select the size- now you need to set the resolution...select all resolutions that the TV supports, since it is a dynex...it is likely a 720p TV. So I would start by selecting only 720p, and then hook the system to the Dynex TV and see if it works now. If it works, you can go back in and attempt to select 1080i or 1080p to see if they work... but again, being a Dynex, it is probably only a 720p TV... The PS3 is likely trying to output a 1080i or 1080p signal...which that TV doesn't support.

When i hooked my ps3 to my friends hd tv it won't work on my tv it says no signal


with the ps3 off, hold down the power button and keep it held down no matter what. It should reset it to the standard format which should show up on the TV. Once you see something, go to display settings and change the settings to 720P,1080i/1080P,etc.

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.

Put the ps3 into standby mode. Then press and hold the power button for five seconds. The machine will beep, and the video will be reset back to normal mode.

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

No video - blue screen...


since you bought this console used, it maybe set to HDMI 1080p/ 1080i/720p output(by the original owner) and if your TV does not support this there will be no picture, the only way to lower the output resoloution is to get into the options menu but to do that you will need a freind with a tv that supports whatever resoloution its been set too.

My tv shows its's geting 1080i only


1080p signal... THE MITSU. WD-65731 has a resolution of 1080p its just the res your PS3 is pumping into your screen is loaded with a little bit more pixels than you 1080p res MITSU. I suggest getting a MITSU WD-57731 since it has a 1080P/24 input. and has great clarity and HD ample for the BD of your PS3. however the differences in picture rate and quality is very small. goodluck.
