Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

2 Answers

My screen is purple, and my ps3 games display with purple colors.

I have a PS3 connected with HDMI cables to an 1080P lcd. The screen displays purple when playing a game. I have switched the cables to all of my HDMI inputs but same problem with all of the inputs. I tried other wires and the same results. However, when i connect through the AV componet wires it works fine, the colors are perfect. What is the problem? Please help!!!!

I had the same problem and i tried what you tried and no result. Came to find out it was my tv. Depending on your tv you have to programe it just like you had to program your ps3. And if that doesnt work its your monster cord. Ask some one at best buy to help their pretty good.

I had the same problem and tried every solution posted with no success. Then I went all NES on it and blew into the PS3 HDMI port a few times. It worked immediately!

I am trying to commect to my PS3 to an LG LCD tv which supports 1080P (Full HD). but as the game starts and when i check the TV it says 720P although the game and the TV both supports full HD. Do i need...


Hello there. There's a few possibilities. First, the obvious, do you have it set to 1080P in the Display Settings options? Secondly, are you using an HDMI cable? You need to be using HDMI to play games in full 1080P. I use the component cables (The red, green and blue ones) for my PS3 and when I'm on the XMB (that's the PS's desktop so to speak) it's displayed in 1080P but games will not play in 1080P, only 720P. Any old HDMI cable will do the trick, so don't get suckered by the price if you are going to pick up a cable!

MY PS3 DOES NOT SEEM TO BE WORK WITH THE HIGH DEFINITON CABLE IT CAME ON FORA FEW SECONDS THEN SCREEN COMES UP WITH NO SIGNAL????


This usually happens when you first buy your ps3 and try to use the HDMI connection immediately. The problem is that the ps3's default output resolution is set to 480i out of the box, and when you try to use an HDMI connection first, HDMI can't do that resolution. HDMI only does 480p, 720p 1080i and 1080p.
See :)

This also happens if you move your ps3 a lot. As it is, HDTV's are either 1080p (full HD) or 720p (including 1080i). If, for example, your tv is 1080p, when you set your display settings in the ps3 menu, it will set your XMB, or ps3 main menu to the max resolution of your tv, 1080p in this case. The resolution will automatically adjust when you start a game, and that game has a native resolution output. That's why, most of the time, games will play in 720p, because that's there native, or original, resolution. This is also the reason why sometimes people have no display on there TV, or a black screen, and when they play a game, that will actually display. That's because your tv can ACCEPT that resolution of that game.

  • Have your ps3 in standby mode (red light).
  • Now, press and hold the power button in the front down. Your ps3 will beep twice. Let it go almost exactly after you heard the second beep.
  • Wait 10-15 seconds. A display will show up, and just answer yes to all!

While playing MGS4, or watching DVDs in my PS3, the lower half of my LCD TV is a shade greyer than the upper half. I am running 1080p through an hdmi to my vizio 32" lcd tv that is full 1080p compatible.


Hi:

1) have you tried using another hdmi cable?
2) are you sure that both ends of the hdmi cable are firmly fitted, such that there is no strain on the cable?
3) have you set the resolution to 'only 1080p'? i.e. make sure 720p and 1080i are unticked, in the Display Settings section, under System Settings in the XMB

Hope this helps,

Please leave feedback if everything is working.

Just wondering if you could tell me the best way to set up the TH42PZ70BA LCD Television to get the best results from the PS3


This is very easy. Just hook up your PS3 to your TV via HDMI cable and set your TV and PS3 to 1080p resolution. On the PS3 all you have to do is click "Display settings" and then go to HDMI output AFTER you have hooked it up. Just click on 1080p and 720p because some games do not support 1080p resolution. Hope this helps!

Problem connecting HDMI cable


Hey there I don't see why your playstation 3 should be doing that other than the console being defective. Sony doesn't have this problem that often and actually this is the first time i have heard of such problem. Try making sure the the HDMI cable is connected at both ends all the way in and also make sure your Samsung is a 1080P which i am pretty sure it is and finally if you have a friend or another 1080P HDTV in your house i would try and see if your ps3 will support the 1080P feature. If you still have the problem even when you use a different TV then its the ps3 that is malfunctioning otherwise it would be your Samsung. Let me know how that turns out alright.

Toshiba 32AV500U HDMI issues


The Toshiba 32AV500U cannot display 1080p. Hook up your PS3 to your computer monitor, provided that it can display 1080p, or some other TV that can, then change your Video Output settings under Settings> Display Settings and uncheck 1080p, which will allow the PS3 to display in 1080i. Once you do that, then hook up the Toshiba via HDMI and it will work with no problem.
