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.

I just bought a used ps3 i hook it up to my emerson hd tv and it shows format not supported , i then hooked it up to my poleroid hd tv and it works fine this all thru the hdmi cable


What are the specs on your emerson, does it support 1080p? Make sure you have the right settings on your ps3. If your emerson supports 720p and 1080i then it will not give you a 1080p picture and you might run into issues.

Trying to hook-up a PS3 to my Toshiba 32AV500U thru HDMI but I get no picture. I forget how to get to the setup.


The Toshiba 32AV500U cannot display 1080p. Hook up your PS3 to your computer monitor, provided that it can display 1080p, or some other TV that can, then change your Video Output settings under Settings> Display Settings and uncheck 1080p, which will allow the PS3 to display in 1080i. Once you do that, then hook up the Toshiba via HDMI and it will work with no problem.

Trying to connect PS3 to Samsung HL-S4676S tv using HDMI cable. I get message saying mode not supported


So I had this same problem. I found that when I hooked to a 1080p TV my PS3 was working, however when I hooked to my 1080i it said Not Supported Mode. So I then hooked to the 1080p and told my PS3 to limit it's self to 1080i mode and hooked it to my Samsung TV and it worked just fine. Give that a try and it should solve the problem. Hope this helps.

"Invalid format" how do I change from 1080p to 1080i or 720i?


I had a second playstation hooked to another tv in my home and took a controller from the non-LG-TV-displaying ps3 and one from a working ps3 on a seperate TV. And used the working ps3 to guide me to the settings menu on the ps3 that was not displaying video. Anyways, if you cannot see the tv screen because it is set on 1080p and your LG will not display it (Only displays up to 1080i). Start The PS3 and press the D-pad buttons in this order.

Left 10+ times. (This Takes you to the far left icon in the XMB)
Right Once. (This is the settings icon)
Down 20+ times. (To reach the bottom of the settings)
Then Up 4 times (This is Display Settings)
Press "X" Once. (This enters Display Settings)
Press Up 5 times (This Makes Sure you are at the top of the sub-menu at Video Output Settings)
Press "X" Once (This Enters Video Output Settings)

Before pressing any more buttons, Know what cables you have pluged into your TV.
For HDMI Just Press "X" and it will auto adjust to for the new TV.
For Component / D-Terminal Output Press Down Once Then "X", and X Again (This changed my ps3 from the 1080p-Invalid Format back to 1080i and fixed my problem.
For Composite Video Output Press Down Twice, Then "X" and X again.

For AV MULTI / SCART Output Press Down Three Times, Then "X"and X again.

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

Hooking up my new PS3 to my five year old 55" Mitsubishi HDTV.


The Sony outputs 180P, not 1080i. There is a difference. I don't know what exactly, but Sony says 1080p is for superior.

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.
