How to fix ps2 display settings


You can adjust screen display settings while playing PlayStation 2. Press the PS button on the Wireless Controller during gameplay and then select [Settings], adjust the following settings. Screen Mode Normal: Set to upscale and display at a size that matches the screen size. Full Screen: Set to upscale and display at full screen by changing proportions and stretching the image. This setting can be selected only when [Normal] or [Full Screen] is selected under Settings > [Game Settings] > [PS / PS2 Upscaler].

To change this setting, you must exit the application and change your Video Output Settings from the display settings option in the Settings menu. Make sure the tv is not set on 720p/i and that it is set to 1080i. There has been issues with games that are 1080 downscaling the resolution. this can be confirmed by reading this article. if you provide me with the model of the tv. I can help assist you in ensuring its on 1080p. If you need further assistance please let me know after you try the following above. Thanks, Midwest-tek

My playstation 3 is set on the display 1080, i need to change it back to normal sd, but it doesnt display anything on my sd tv. how do i get it back to normal.


Please try the following steps to solve your PS3 problem :
Step 1. Turn the PS3 off into standby (red light on)
Step 2. Press and hold the power button. It will beep as soon as you press it and then about 5 seconds later it will beep again. Let go of the power button when you hear this second beep.
Step 3. Wait for your PS3 to start.
This solution basically resets the video output back to standard definition.
Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa

double check display settings then the first open under there to see what it is set at maybe it defaulted back to 480 instead of hdmi 1080. Also try doing a lens cleaning from the disc that are brushless kmart sells them, and walmart but only online for wal mart this can drastically improve if its just a dirty lens doing it.

Hi mabee this may help try to down scale the game to take the load off the GPU dont run it at 1080 as they tend to overheat and the fan goes ballistic this is my theory of the cause of YLOD eg 1080 forced into a 640x480 tv something has to give and it wont be the TV

Playing on a regular TV.


Ensure you have returned the PS3 video output system setting to 480i vs the 720/1080 setting. Regular TV will give you a black screen at the higher resolutions.

PS3 Scart / HD


Turn it off with the "hard" switch in the back. Then turn it back on with the switch while pressing the power button on the front for 10 secs, this should reset your display settings.

Ps3


Depending on your television, if it's a tube then your display settings should be at 480i and no higher. Sounds like you set it at 720 or 1080 and your TV can't handle the resolution. You need to go to the PS3 main screen (turn on without game in it) and select the "settings" ( might be called "system settings", 2nd or 3rd icon from the left), a sub menu will show up and look for the 'display settings' heading and change it back to 480i. That should do it. Reset the PS3 just to make sure the new settings take effect.
