Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

Code displayed over my ps3 xmb, affects gameplay

When I turn on my system (4 month old ps3 (40gb), with HDMI cable to a 40" Bravia X-series, no internet connection), the cross media bar displays what appears to be programming code in a flouresent green, just flickering in the background. During gameplay (Fallout3, Saints row2); Invisible walls show up as solid objects, some trees & npc's grow square edged branches which reach to the horizon (which can be walked through, but not shot through). These growths can sometimes cover the entire screen, reducing visibility to a calidescope of black, greys & blues. visibility zero. Turn character 180 degrees, perfect picture. All started a 5-6 weeks ago, with lag & then freezing during assasins creed, as well as lag in civilisation revoloution. No problems with dvd's or blu-ray. Please help!?!? My baby is sick :(

I have a sony bravia 40 inch hd tv. i also have a comcast hd box that always worked on the tv through the hdmi. One day i was having trouble with cable box so i unpluged it to reset it. now my tv will...


Your PS3 working doesn't mean a thing for the cable unless you are using that cable for your PS3. I would bet you have a bad HDMI. They are pretty sensitive to being bent. Try replacing that first. The other thing to check is to first make sure you have the proper input selected on the TV for where you have the HDMI plugged into on your TV.

No display


Hi,The settings on the PS3 are sending the video signal throught the HDMI port. Either go through the XMB via system settings, display settings,or if you only have a low def tv then hold the power for 5 seconds (when you turn it on i belive) and it resets it. You may have to adjust the audio settings at the same time, because if you pressed yes when the HDMI was first connected, you agreed to send the audio signal via HDMI as well.

PS3 Blue Ray White lines on left side of TV


I have the same TV, and a Sony BluRay player (not a PS3). I have the same problem.

I found it only does this when playing back 24p disks. My player has an option to disable 24p output to the HDMI, and it "fixes" the problem.

Not really a fix, but a workaround.

Not sure whether it is the TV or player, and sometimes I have fixed it by turning the tv off and on multiple times.

I am going to test the player on another monitor and see if it does the same thing. If so, the player is going back to the store.

On the XMB go to Settings ---> BD/DVD Settings ---> BD 1080p 24 Hz Output (HDMI). Turn that bad boy off.

Give that a shot.

I have looked up the infomation on your TV I noticed that your TV has two HDMI input plugs. Since your SONY BRAVIA is hooked up to one port, you need to buy another HDMI cable for your PS3. On your tv remote you should have an option to switch from video 1 to video 2 so then you can switch from the SONY BRAVIA to the PS3 the problem is you will only hear your PS3 Sound from you TV. If you want to hear your PS3 sound from your SONY BRAVIA you need to buy an optical cable (also called TOSLINK) to connect from your PS3 to the SONY BRAVIA.

Hope that helps!

40gb hdmi


I had the same problem at first. I did the following:

1. Connect both cables: Multi-AV and HDMI.
2. Go to the TV's channel for SCART.
3. You now can see the PS3. Go to Display Settings, under
Settings menu. Select HDMI and the desired resolution.
4. Change to the HDMI channel.
5. You should now also see the PS3's XMB on the HDMI channel.
6. You can now disconnect the Multi-AV.

I hope this information can help you and your customer.
Please rate.

P.S. I figured you were Dutch since you used Neophyte as a name for your previous question. Are you Dutch, and in that case: what videogames store you work at?

Greetings,

DarkNeogen.
