Question about Samsung HP-R4272 42 in. Plasma HDTV

1 Answer

When Playing Halo 3... The Screen Shrinks Down...

So, when I initially start up the game on my (Samsung 42'' Plasma 720p) tv (which I just bought from best buy 1 week ago) it displays the full 16:9 or whatever it is. HOWEVER, once I go into matchmaking and finally make it into the round... the display changes to 4:1 or whatever the smaller ratio is. (There are two 4 in. black bars runing the down the right and left side)

I have the same samsung tv (just LCD and 1080p) and this tv doesn't do that...

ANY ONE KNOW??????

Kyleolver,
16:9 is the widescreen mode, the other size is 4:3 ratio which is what the game's native size, it is picture boxing by the plazma is showing the size as not to distort the image, to get the full screen picture, but make sure it's not the plazma's setting first - where it selects the size of the image, you may have the streched version on your normal play.

My tv goes from 1080 to 720 while I'm playing my ps3 how can I make it stay on 1080


You have make sure the game can run in 1080p first by looking at the back of the box. If it can, and you're using hdmi etc then simply do the following:

1. Go into display settings.
2. Select HDMI, then "custom"
3. Uncheck 720p and 1080i, leave 1080p selected.
4. Start up the game and double check it is on 1080p.

Otherwise, you're stuck because the majority of games are in 720p to avoid lag within the game.

Onece the plasma heats up it shrinks a little, i think the cause is that you are low on plasma, so when i heats it shrinks and since the plasma cycles, the area low on plasma wil move slowly around the screen, take this to a repairman and more plasma can be added to it.

Time lag between Playstation 3 and LCD TV.


SOURCE: http://boardsus.playstation.com/playstation/board/message?board.id=confrontation&thread.id=735278&view=by_date_ascending&page=2

If your playing with lag on your new HD LCD your at a competitive disadvantage! Everything you see happens seconds later than your opponent who has his/her settings right.
The fix:
1. Connect your PS3 using HDMI Input 2.
2. SELECT or RENAME the HDMI Input to PC. Already pointed out, but this does not make the majority of tv's run in PC mode.
3. On the PS3 start-up menu go to Settings---> Display ---->
Choose HDMI ----> DO NOT choose AUTOMATIC ----> SELECT CUSTOM ----->
4. Now, Select all the Resolution options EXCEPT 720p. This will force your games into 1080p mode. What it will also do is drop any game that doesn't have 1080i/p support into 480. Games like Burnout Paradise, Vegas 2, Heavenly Sword, NHL 08 and more will be dropped into SD (480) rather than HD. Your picture will be terrible. 720p is standard gaming resolution currently, 1080i/p is not.
5. Save and complete the display setup.
6. Turn off the PS3. Turn off the TV.
7. Turn on the TV. Turn on the PS3.
8. Complete! (Lag eliminated). Please spread this around!

*The key to eliminating ALL LAG is modern LCD's need to be in PC MODE (NOT GAME MODE) On many tv's, PC mode requires you to use a VGA or DVI connector. You'll either need to buy an HDMI adapter or an HDMI to VGA / DVI cable if that's the case.
and the Source MUST BE IN 1080p so that the TV can use it's NATIVE RESOLUTION.* Please, check your tv's native resolution. If you have a plasma that only does 720p, your native resolution is probably 720p. You do not need to follow these steps, it will only make things worse. If your tv's native resolution is 720p, obviously you want to keep your display settings at 720p on your PS3. If your native resolution is 1080i, you shouldn't go selecting 1080p. If your native resolution is 1080p on your TV, you need to be aware that removing 720p as an option will force many games into 480.

Keep these things in mind and remember that the steps above are far from a cure all solution. .
