Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
Recently I bought a hd cable for the ps3 now when I turn it on the screen is green, sometimes a little part of a picture comes through but then it freezes. It works sporadically but can go in the middle of games to the green screen. I can only resent the ps3 then by holding the on/off button for 5 seconds and once I try to turn it on again its stays green
The HDMI setting on my tv says HDMI pc but it fits the ps3 cable
1-HDMI is available in several versions. The PLAYSTATION 3 is
compatible with HDMI version 1.3 or higher, which will take full
advantage of Blu-ray Disc™ high-definition video. There are also "Type
A" and "Type B" connectors. The PLAYSTATION 3 uses the 19-pin Type A
connector, which will allow resolutions up to 1080p.
The HDMI cable is not included with the PLAYSTATION 3. If you are using an HDMI to DVI converter, you may wish to remove this adaptor.
2- The resolution output (i.e., picture quality) of the PLAYSTATION 3 will depend on three factors:
The type of cable used and the inputs available on the TV or display monitor.
The maximum resolution the TV or display monitor can support. The PLAYSTATION 3 can output two types of resolution: HD and SD. Refer to the TV or display monitor's owner's manual to check which video modes are supported.
The maximum resolution programmed into the source material (movie or game). Refer to the software packaging for information on maximum resolution details or contact the publisher directly.
3- Try connecting with the supplied AV Cable instead of the HDMI to see if you can get a successful installation. This will help determine where the problem may be with your particular HMDI setup and/or equipment.
4- Disconnect any coaxial cables at the point closest to the television. Signals sent through coaxial cables may cause interference with the sound and picture outputted from the PLAYSTATION 3 which results in buzzing and humming noises from your display and speakers.
