You cannot fit a pint of water into a half pint glass... in other words you have the ps3 sending a picture that has too much information and resolution for the 720 display you are using.. use another connection method to hook up your ps3 to the tv or use a friends tv that has the higher resolution capabilities and then change the output option in your ps3 it will then work ok on your tv

How to set display to 1080p on Hisense F42K20E?


You don't. The TV has a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels; so it's already 1080p. The number of pixels can't be changed.

What you're probably getting mixed up with is the TV showing the resolution of the incoming signal when you change channels or go to a different source. Standard definition from cable might be flagged as 480i. DVD might show either as 480i, or 480p, or maybe 720p or 1080i or 1080p if you have a scaling DVD player and set it appropriately. HDTV on cable or satellite will show as 1080i or possibly 720p. Blu-rays and PS3/XBox 360 or PS4/Xbox One should show as 1080p when your TV is connected.

Whatever the source signal resolution, the TV will scale it up to fill the panel area of 1920x1080 pixels. So the TV is always using all the pixels, regardless of the resolution of the source signal.

When i turn on my PS3 part of the screen is cut off, like my PS3 thinks my TV is bigger than it is, i cannot find anything in the video or output settings, it there anything i might have missed? I also...


First things first what is the make and model of your television? Second things second, if it is a flt screen like i presume everyone has... Are you using an hdmi cord or vga cables?

I'd say adust your output settings on your Ps3. Which is most likely the problem.
For instance instead of using 1080p use the 720p display. your display settings are probably set too high.

How do I change the resolution from 720p to 1080p


If your Sony TV is designed to display 1080P resolution - you don't need to do anything. It does it automatically synchronizing with appropriate 1080P signal source.
If source does not produce 1080P (because it can't or settings are wrong) TV won't display it.
Regards.

Out of range


Right i'm halfway to understanding what's going on.

It sounds like your ps3 is readjusting the resolution to something the new tv isn't compatible with.

Looking at the t.v (bravia v4000), it should be compatible with all resolutions upto 1080p.

What happens when you turn the ps3 on initially (plugged into the new tv) ? It doesn't go straight into the game, so what happens and what boxes in the display settings do you have the resolution set to?

You should only have 720p and 1080p ticked.

The 40v4000 supports 1080p so when the PS3 auto-detected the display settings it set the XMB to 1080p, the 32v4000 supports 720p but the PS3 still thinks its connected to the 40v4000 so it is trying to output 1080p which is out range of the 32v4000. Go to the display settings on the PS3 and auto-detect the display settings again

MY PS3 DOES NOT SEEM TO BE WORK WITH THE HIGH DEFINITON CABLE IT CAME ON FORA FEW SECONDS THEN SCREEN COMES UP WITH NO SIGNAL????


This usually happens when you first buy your ps3 and try to use the HDMI connection immediately. The problem is that the ps3's default output resolution is set to 480i out of the box, and when you try to use an HDMI connection first, HDMI can't do that resolution. HDMI only does 480p, 720p 1080i and 1080p.
See :)

This also happens if you move your ps3 a lot. As it is, HDTV's are either 1080p (full HD) or 720p (including 1080i). If, for example, your tv is 1080p, when you set your display settings in the ps3 menu, it will set your XMB, or ps3 main menu to the max resolution of your tv, 1080p in this case. The resolution will automatically adjust when you start a game, and that game has a native resolution output. That's why, most of the time, games will play in 720p, because that's there native, or original, resolution. This is also the reason why sometimes people have no display on there TV, or a black screen, and when they play a game, that will actually display. That's because your tv can ACCEPT that resolution of that game.

  • Have your ps3 in standby mode (red light).
  • Now, press and hold the power button in the front down. Your ps3 will beep twice. Let it go almost exactly after you heard the second beep.
  • Wait 10-15 seconds. A display will show up, and just answer yes to all!

Just wondering if you could tell me the best way to set up the TH42PZ70BA LCD Television to get the best results from the PS3


This is very easy. Just hook up your PS3 to your TV via HDMI cable and set your TV and PS3 to 1080p resolution. On the PS3 all you have to do is click "Display settings" and then go to HDMI output AFTER you have hooked it up. Just click on 1080p and 720p because some games do not support 1080p resolution. Hope this helps!

Ps3 trouble


ok, i got it working... Ok...your problem is probably that when you're using it on the HDTV...you have the resolution set to an HD one (720p, 1080i, 1080P). A normal TV cannot display these. While it's connected to the HDTV,Before you connect it to your normal tv, you have to switch it back to 480i or 480p otherwise, your regular tv wont show a picture. So go to settings, display settings, and uncheck 720p, 1080i, 1080p. It will ask you if these are the settings you choose (and it's going to look funny on your HDTV) Accept the settings and turn it off. When you connect it to your Regular TV, you should now see a picture. Hope this helps!
