Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

When I want to watch something whether it be Cable, a movie, or video games the screen only stays clear for 4 seconds then it scrambles. Not only that, jumps from being scrambled to going to "no signal." Sound works fine, its just the picture. I've tried all the inputs and outputs. Nothing seems to work.

You have to go into the settings of the video card and change the "signal" from the one you are using now, this could be RGB, S-Video, Composite, Digital or Analogue, flick through these settings until you find the correct signal

kind regards

Trying to import MiniDV from Sony GV-D900 to Windows 7 PC via Windows Movie Maker. The video on the tape is clear and focused. When I import to Movie Maker, via 6 pin to 4 pin Firewire, it becomes so...

sounds like either a bad cable or the software is not set right or the format being sent is not really compatible withe Movie Maker.
Try the cable on a different device if possible.
I'd first try a different cable and if that doesn't work, try using a different software, even on a trial basis where you can get something really professional for free to get this specific thing done.

Screen went black while watching a movie, stays black

Looks like you need a new cable from the PS3 to the Tv. get a new one but before that is always better to confirm if you have another tv source connect your PS3 and check it out if the cable is the black sheep out here. you can throw it out and buy new one.

Good Luck

It may be a video setting in the PS3 is not matching the TV. Try this. Turn off your PS3. Then, press the 1/0 button for more than 5 seconds. This should reset your video settings.
