SOURCE: Acoustic Solutions 26'' HD TV cannot play PS3 blue ray films

I have recently brought the same TV and had the same problem but I've mangaed to find a soultion.

The automatic setting for Blu Ray on PS3 is Full HD (1080p) but the Acoustic Solutions TV is HD ready (720p). For PS3 games it will automattically change settings for you to 720p. This is why this works straight away but Blu Ray doesn't.

Solution

You need to plug in your PS3 using the scart contection, then on the ps3 menu go to settings > display settings > HDMI. You will then need to attach the HDMI cable and manually set up
HDMI by checking the 720p option and deselect 1080p.

That should then play Blu Rays too. You don't lose too much quality as 720p works nearly as well as 1080p on smaller TVs.

My acoustic solutions lcd26805hd tv has started flickering really badly every time I switch it on. The flickering goes on for about 30 minutes before it calms down. I have checked all the connections at the back of the tv - all ok. This happens whether I watch cable or a dvd.

Adjust the audio output on your playstation and the television depending upon how you're connecting it to the television for picture and sound.

For an hdmi cable between the television and the PS3 only then adjust the audio ouput to hdmi on the PS3.
You do not need to connect anything else between the television and the PS3 besides an hdmi cable.

If you are using the colored plug type component or composite cables then it is av.

If you are connecting with a fiber optic cable to a surround sound system then it is set to optical.

Depending on what television you are using you would also have to change the Playstation to 48khz/96khz

PLaystation 3 won't link up via HDMI cable


You might want to try a factory reset on your PS3 = turn it off then hold down the power button for 5 seconds it should then Beep.

there is a small memory in the PS3 that stores info about the tv that is was Initially setup on. IF you do this reset this should allow you to connect it to your Acoustic Solutions tv via the hdmi cable.
Another Tip i would do is connect it all up with it turned off then power up your appliances once its all connected.

Hope this sorts it out for you

PS3 Won't Play Blu-Ray


If there is no picture on the TV screen: Back to top
  • Check that the input mode of the TV is appropriate for the connector in use on the PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system.
  • There may be a problem with the cable in use. Try using another cable that is compatible with the PLAYSTATION®3.
  • If the video output settings on the PLAYSTATION®3 do not match those of the cable or TV in use, there may be no picture. If the screen goes blank, turn off the system.
  • Then, with only the PLAYSTATION®3 and the TV connected, touch the system's power button for more than 5 seconds to turn the system back on. The video output settings will automatically be reset to the standard resolution.
If the DVD or Blu-ray Disc™ (BD) cannot be played, or the picture is distorted: Back to top
  • When outputting DVD content or PLAYSTATION®3 system format software in SD resolution, only discs recorded in the NTSC standard can be played.
  • If the PLAYSTATION®3 is connected to a VCR or a combination TV/VCR unit, copy protection encoding on some DVDs and BDs may cause image distortion, or may cause the image to become lighter or darker. In such cases, connect the system to the TV directly.
  • If the DVD or BD does not match the region code set in the PLAYSTATION®3, it cannot be played.
  • Some DVDs are preset with parental control restrictions. Enter the password that was set in "Security Settings" to temporarily increase the viewer age restriction level.
  • Some BDs are preset with parental control restrictions. Enter the password that was set in "Security Settings" to change the parental control level.
  • The BD may be disc-locked. Enter the password that was set when the disc was created.
if non of that works you need to contact Sony at

Games run on hdmi, but not Blu-ray movies


You most likely have the updated drivers. You may have to go and change a setting. I found an answer on the PS3 website that may be of some use to you. I hope this helps you: http://boardsus.playstation.com/playstation/board/message?board.id=ps3&message.id=1662191 From the site: "go to bd/dvd setting and set the "108024hz" option off"
