SOURCE: PS3 picture doesn't work

Alright I went thru the ps3 faqs, here is my solution. You have to do the following.

1. When the system is in standby mode (power button is red), you press and HOLD the button for about 10 seconds, basicaly until it turns off again. It may be more than 10 seconds but not more than 20. Yes I know it sounds a lot but trust me. Then simply press the power button again (remember it must go from red to green to red again, and u will hear a rough noise as if the system was turned off i.e. like you unplugged it). So press the power button, wait a bit for it to adjust the outpt settings and you should be good to go. :)

SOURCE: Playstation 3 Flickers when set to 1080P

It sucks to see ALLLLLLL these solutions, when I have the solution. Turn off DEEP COLOR in the video settings. It will immediately stop. If it doesn't, then you don't have the typical snow/flickering problem.

Any other setting other than HDMI will change it to the RCA plugs. Just remember, if you change a setting and it does not work, simply hit the X button on the controller to return to the previous setting.

Hi I have a 32 inch hd vizio tv and a ps3 system and I bought s Belkin hdmi audio and video cable and I'm trying to figure out how connect the cable to the tv and ps3 to get hd channels and hd games and...


Cable: First you need to be using an HD Cable box to get the HD channels that your provider offers. if you don't, you can't get HD channels. Keep in mind that not all of the channels that your provider offers are in HD. Out of the 300+ channels that my provider Cox Communications in Las Vegas offers, they offer 91 of them in HD. If you have an HD box, you need to go into the settings menu and make sure that your video output is set to constant as you do not want it bouncing between different resolutions when you change channels. In your case you will have two options, 720p and 1080i (1080p does not exist for cable due to the amount of bandwidth required). Choose 720p because your set is under 40" and you won't see a a difference between 720p and 1080i except for that because it's progressive, HD may actually look better. (NOTE: although your analog channels will display at 720p, they are not in HD. They are simply up converted SD so don't expect that they will look like HD channels.) Also be sure to set your audio settings on your box to "HDMI out."
In general, HDMI devices should automatically detect HDMI input but since I don't know what kind of box you are using, it is possible that HDMI-out is disabled in the settings. My box (Scientific Atlanta) doesn't have that option, but I don't know about others. As far as the set is concerned, plug the HDMI cable into the input you want to use (if it's a new Vizio, I'm assuming there are three inputs as that's what my 32" Vizio in the kids' room has) and the set will auto-detect the HDMI input and automatically set the resolution accordingly.
SIDE NOTE: The only other way you're going to get HD channels from cable without a box is if you're using your COAX cable directly in to the TV and that is only if your cable provider has them floating on the line and you're only going to get the 5 major networks and Univision in HD.
PS3: This is even easier. WIth your PS3 powered off and your TV powered on, connect one end of your HDMI cable to the HDMI out on the PS3 and the other end to the appropriate HDMI input on your TV (of your choosing). Power on your PS3. Your TV will automatically detect the HDMI input from the PS3 and put that HDMI input on the screen. You will get an on-screen message from the PS3 detecting HDMI and it will ask you if you want o use HDMI or words to that effect (I can't remember the exact message... it's been a while). Choose "yes" and it will adjust the picture accordingly and should automatically choose the highest video resolution your television can display. To verify your settings, first hit the "guide" button on your Vizio remote control and in the upper right corner it will tell you at exactly what resolution it is displaying at. If it's not where you want it to be, on your PS3, go the Settings Menu and scroll down to "Display Settings" and the first item on the list is "Video Output Settings." Follow the step by step on screen menu prompts to determine your display settings, and choose "automatic" when prompted. If everything is copasedic, the highest resolution your television can display at will be listed at the top (and will be the current setting) and all of the other resolutions will be listed below it. If something is wrong between the "handshake" between the HDMI from the PS3 to the TV and it doesn't display in HD, go back into Video Output Settings" and when prompted, choose manual in stead and set the resolution on the PS3 the highest your TV can display. NOTE: Most 32" TV's have a maximum resolution of 720p fir the reasons I stated earlier. Check your manual for the specifics on yours. Furthermore, all PS3 games are in 720p so even if you have a 1080p TV, don't expect higher resolutions than that. AS far as Netflix is concerned, not all of their programming is in HD. The scale for Netflix is SD/Low/Medium/High/X-High. HD/Low/Medium/High/X-High, your quality depends on the program and strength of your Internet connection.
Closing: I'm a little confused by your issue as HDMI is automatic and you should automatically be getting HD so the only other thing I can think of is that your display needs calibrating and you just think you aren't getting HD. In order to get the most out of your new TV and your PS3, I would highly recommend that you calibrate your set with a Blu-Ray calibration disc that comes with color filters. It will take you about an hour or so to get the hang of and use correctly but the results will be very noticeable. The presets that come out of the box and the settings that they use on the floor in the store are awful and you don't realize how much you've been missing in picture quality until you calibrate. Do not rent this disc from Netflix as it does not come eith the color filters. You can buy a calibration disc at Amazon. I got the DVE one, from what I understand, the Spears and Munsel one is very good as well.

I have a ps3 that i tried to hook up to our emmerson tv through an hdmi cable and the tv screen says format not supportedf why?


If you recently moved the PS3 from one tv to another, it's setup to work on that other tv.
Press and hold the power button on the PS3 until you hear a beep. This should default the video output to whatever is plugged in and the PS3 should output normally via the HDMI connection.

Whe playing games i have background music and sound but no main dialect during game. like ncaa 2010 no commentary with hdmi but with av everything works okay


must be a problem with:
  • your HDMI cable, with some connectors that doesn't work (it causes problems with audio channels). Try using a different one .
  • OR
  • you should set the default audio settings in playstation settings , if you are with a wrong channel selected you might have problems like these you are experiencing.

Ps3 starts and the green light is on but no image omes up on my


Try connecting the PS3 to your TV with a scart cable first and go to the appropriate channel. The problem you are facing is probably because the default output is not HD. So you must change it to HD you can do this by going on your PS3 display settings, whilst your operating on standard definition, AV1 or something like that. When the you are on display settings plug the HD cable in the PS3 while still being on AV1 and then plug the cable in, this may prompt a message saying that a HDMI device has been detected and you can change to HD, if this message appears switch to the HDMI output and then select yes and automatic on the PS3 for optimal settings in HD. If the message does not appear then select the HD output yourself after plugging the HDMI cable in and then change to the channel and do the same.

My ps3 won't output 1080p properly.


it may be that your tv only supports up to 1080i instead of p. some tv makers have gotten away with saying that the 1080i is full hd. you may just want to change your settings to 1080i and see if that works instead. there is little difference that the human eye can see between the two formats as far as i know.

Connecting ps3 to cinema system


There is no substitute for HDMI. However, the 'digital in' cable connection that you want to use is still digital and will sound almost exactly the same. The differences are barely noticeable to the human ear. Here is a list for you to see the pecking order of each type of connection.

Audio connections from best to least go in this order:
1. HDMI (digital)
2. Fiber optic (digital)
3. Coax - Digital (digital) <--- The one you want to use.
4. Component (analog)
5. RCA/AV (analog)

Video connections from best to least go in this order:
1. HDMI (full HD digital)
2. Component (Blue, green, red, white, red - HD analog)
3. S-Video
4. RCA/AV (Yellow, white, red)

Good luck!!
