Question about RCA D52W19 52" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

When using PS3 on RCA D52W19 TV, the screen does not fit ( it is zoomed and off-center) in 1080i resolution.

I can get everything to work fine in standard definition, but when I select 1080i on the PS3 it does not show the whole screen (like it is zoomed in and off-center a bit). I have the PS3 hooked up to the tv via a DVI to HDMI cable (have also tried a regular HDMI cable with DVI converter).

    I have tried adjusting all possible settings related to display or picture on both the TV and the ps3 and I have had no luck. There is a DVI video mode on the TV (like video-1, video-2, etc.) that I must use when I'm using the DVI input, and it does not have as many options in the menu as some of the other video modes do.

  • Kevin Dietz Feb 21, 2012

    So I went out and bought a component cable, tried it out, and still no dice. Under the PS3's display settings menu, 480p works fine, 720p splits the screen into three squished screens, 1080i still cuts off about an inch or two from each side, and 1080p just makes the screen go crazy (static and lines).

    Would it be worth it to try and have a TV repair man look at or "service" my TV (and is it expensive)? I wonder if it is a problem with this model TV, or if it is just a problem with my specific TV that could be fixed...

Hello!
Have you tried to toggle "format" or "screen size"? On those sets non HD and HD settings could be adjusted separately. Try that, first. If no luck, try similar settings on PS3. I bet, you will be able to match screen format there, as well. To me it looks, like picture formats are mismatched. Also: try to use "component" cables, instead of DVI adapter cable, if nothing works.
good luck,
Alex.

    Thank you for posting a suggestion so quickly. I added details to my initial question in regards to the first thing you said. As for the component cables, I actually came across a forum where people were saying that component cables can transmit video up to 1080i. I was throwing around the idea earlier and found Sony's ps3 component cable for around $20 on Amazon. I guess it would certainly be worth a shot.

    Also, do you think that there could be a "master" menu on my TV, as changes to the picture settings from the menu only apply to the current video mode - the others are unaffected.

  • Kevin Dietz Feb 16, 2012

    Disregard the last part of my response... I tried going through the menu and picture settings on all different video modes and while the other modes had more options than DVI did, there was not anything useful.

  • Kevin Dietz Feb 21, 2012

    No luck with the component cable - it still cuts off part of the screen on all sides. For example, on the "main menu" (the first screen) of the PS3, in the upper-right hand corner it only shows "2/21 1:20 PM". Normally, there should be a clock symbol and some space after "PM".

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 am trying to connect my ps3 to this TV. i have tried with AV ables and through HDMI but it does not seem to work. is there a problem with compatability?


hi,
PS3 outputs hi definition video through HDMI ie 1080p. Your tv will not support that resolution. Because its a HD ready one ie 1080i. If you wnat to connect the PS3 through the hdmi then you have to down convert the video output resolution of PS3 to 1080i. for that you have to connect the PS3 to any FULL HD tv and go to the HDMI video setup and down convert the resolution to 1080i. After that you can connect the PS3 to you tv. Surely you will get the video.

There is one more way to get the video in you tv. connect the PS3's component video output to the component video input of you tv and the audio output to the corresponding component audio input . Select component video input on the tv. You need a component video cable and a stereo RCA cable for that.
ok

Trying to use ps3, even after using hdmi cable on input 6 or 7, it says check your device output and i see green lines on my screen?


hi
There maybe some problem with your TVs resolution. ps3 outputs full hd high resolution video(1080p) through its HDMI. May be your TV is not supporting that resolution. Connect ps3's component video out to your TV's component video input and then try. if it ask for any resolution selection. select 720p or 1080i, above that resolution your TV will not support. Your tv is hd ready one, not full hd. ps3 's HDMI out is full hd (1080p).
or try this
Connect your ps3 to any full hd tv and then goto video setup of ps3. change resolution to 1080i (down scaling ). then connect to your TV via HDMI. surly u will get the video.
ok

The previous answer is partly right. Are you both using HDMI, or are you changing connection method. If you change method, you must reset the graphics settings, which can be a bit tricky without a screen. Turn off your PS3, then Press AND HOLD on the Power Symbol for some time, or until you hear the beeps, and the flight flashes green, then, it should work.

During initial setup, after we choose the HDMI option the screen goes black. Work fine connected to TV


Are you using an HDMI cable? If not, your best option is to get one online, because they go for about $59-99 at retail stores.
If you are using an HDMI cable, be sure you are using a resolution compatible with your TV. In display options, when you choose HDMI, you should find a list of checkboxes with resolutions (420p, 720i, etc). Personally, my TV only works up to 1080i, because it doesn't have progressive scan (p). The PS3 may be trying to set it to 1080p which your TV can't handle. Try out different resolutions until it works.

RCA D52130 52 in. Won't Display High Def


Hi!
I doubt you'll look at this 2 years later, or even have the T.V.

I have the same TV and was able to view ps3 and xbox 360 games in 1080i, but it's a little tricky. First, let me say that the ps3 is probably not the best system to try using 1080i in unless you have a 360 to help trick the tv into working.

Xbox 360
You need to first set the video to 1080i. This will make the screen display in a bunch of horizontal lines most of the time, but if you keep toggling it on and off, it eventually works. To avoid having to sit and swap between the two modes, it's easier to first set it to 1080i and confirm the setting, then go back into the settings, select 720 (first option above 1080i) and cancel as soon as the video mode changes. 95% of the time this will make it display correctly in 1080i mode. If you turn the tv off and back on, it will sometimes reset to the horizontal lines. If you restart the xbox, it will reset to horizontal lines most of the time. With the ps3, you can set it to 1080i and keep toggling it until it works, but when the game launches it can screw up again, so it's best to have the xbox on and ready with a component switch so you can fix it with the xbox then switch back to the ps3. I think the cable that comes with the tv for HD input (the component plugs don't work, they only support 480, but the vga looking input supports 1080i) - the cable is just poor quality and can barely handle the signal. I've been trying to find a better quality cable with no luck.


Hope this helps other people with this ancient beta HD input canadian tvness.
