Your TV most likely does not support 720p or you have it setup wrong. the 720p and hp 1040i are very tricky to get set up. Double check everything because if it's set up right then your TV does not support it. Sorry.

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.

No signal on tv and mode not supported via hdmi cable


Connect your PS3 to your tv using a normal AV cable. Check some Display settings like 720p or 1080p. I've your TV is 720p, 1080p probably wont work.
I'm not sure of this all, but its worth a shot.

My playstation 3 will not play in 1080p. It used to work, but when we switched cables, it wont work in HD.


When you switched cables, you mean you changed the cord running from the PS3 to the TV? HD content requires an HDMI connection from the PS3 to the TV. It is possible that when you changed cables, you replaced the PS3's HDMI cable with Component Cables which can only deliver in Standard Definition and not in High Definition (720p, 1080i and 1080p).

When my ps3 is on 720p or 1080i there is this white fuzzy line that oulines certain images on the tv such a faces and clouds and such.. but when its on 480p its fine.. i bought a new HDMI cable thinking it...


This happens when using hdmi for me, free to air digital tv is fine, but playing games has the exact same problems as you describe, and even dvd's etc do it, but not very noticeable at all, needs to be slow paced with a high contrast in in the picture usually.

Hi i have a samsung sp50l 7hx and just bought a ps3 tried to conect with hdmi leads and also red white and yellow leads just getting a blue screen up and not sure what to do as i havent got tv manual


I believe that the PS3 only supports one output at a time you could try unplugging the a/v cables and leave the hdmi cable inserted you should get picture and when you do change the settings of the PS3 to support 720p or 1080p as the quality will greatly increase.

Samsung 32 tv doesn't read hdmi cable with the PS3


I have samsung also. You connect your plugs in the back where they go. Go to your settings on your PS3 and make sure that it is 1080p or 720p, whichever your tv is. And your tv will adopt those settings to recieve high definition data from your gaming system. Hope it works for ya! If so, please leave me feedback!

Time lag between Playstation 3 and LCD TV.


SOURCE: http://boardsus.playstation.com/playstation/board/message?board.id=confrontation&thread.id=735278&view=by_date_ascending&page=2

If your playing with lag on your new HD LCD your at a competitive disadvantage! Everything you see happens seconds later than your opponent who has his/her settings right.
The fix:
1. Connect your PS3 using HDMI Input 2.
2. SELECT or RENAME the HDMI Input to PC. Already pointed out, but this does not make the majority of tv's run in PC mode.
3. On the PS3 start-up menu go to Settings---> Display ---->
Choose HDMI ----> DO NOT choose AUTOMATIC ----> SELECT CUSTOM ----->
4. Now, Select all the Resolution options EXCEPT 720p. This will force your games into 1080p mode. What it will also do is drop any game that doesn't have 1080i/p support into 480. Games like Burnout Paradise, Vegas 2, Heavenly Sword, NHL 08 and more will be dropped into SD (480) rather than HD. Your picture will be terrible. 720p is standard gaming resolution currently, 1080i/p is not.
5. Save and complete the display setup.
6. Turn off the PS3. Turn off the TV.
7. Turn on the TV. Turn on the PS3.
8. Complete! (Lag eliminated). Please spread this around!

*The key to eliminating ALL LAG is modern LCD's need to be in PC MODE (NOT GAME MODE) On many tv's, PC mode requires you to use a VGA or DVI connector. You'll either need to buy an HDMI adapter or an HDMI to VGA / DVI cable if that's the case.
and the Source MUST BE IN 1080p so that the TV can use it's NATIVE RESOLUTION.* Please, check your tv's native resolution. If you have a plasma that only does 720p, your native resolution is probably 720p. You do not need to follow these steps, it will only make things worse. If your tv's native resolution is 720p, obviously you want to keep your display settings at 720p on your PS3. If your native resolution is 1080i, you shouldn't go selecting 1080p. If your native resolution is 1080p on your TV, you need to be aware that removing 720p as an option will force many games into 480.

Keep these things in mind and remember that the steps above are far from a cure all solution. .
