SOURCE: did this thing, not working. I have a 40" sony

the ps3 has a setting to run on hd tvs. if this is not selected you will have this problem. go into ps3 settings and select automatic output settings and when you turn it on you should be asked if you would like to keep these hd settings.

When I hook my ps3 up to my Sony Bravia tv it comes up invalid format. Any suggestions? But doesn't do that when I hook it up to other sony


Disconnect any SCART leads.

  1. Connect your HDMI lead to your TV HDMI 1 port and PS3.
  2. Now turn OFF your TV, then turn OFF your PS3
  3. Now wait 15 seconds.
  4. Now turn on your TV and follow this carefully......
  5. Now press and hold the "ON" button on your PS3 until it cycles at least once.  
  6. Wait 2 seconds and it should handshake properly and make the connection.
I had the same issue, was a pain until I saw the solution on another site.

I'm getting an invalid format on my hdmi inputs when i hook up my ps3. It's wierd because it works on my viszo, but not on my new westinghouse or my samsung.


If you accidentally set your PS 3 for 1080p resolution, when the TV can only support 720p, you get a black screen. The Westinghouse TV I used displayed a message that said "invalid format." To reset the PS 3 to the standard AV format, you shut the PS 3 off. Then you hold the PS 3’s power button down for about 10 seconds. It will reset to standard video

I have looked up the infomation on your TV I noticed that your TV has two HDMI input plugs. Since your SONY BRAVIA is hooked up to one port, you need to buy another HDMI cable for your PS3. On your tv remote you should have an option to switch from video 1 to video 2 so then you can switch from the SONY BRAVIA to the PS3 the problem is you will only hear your PS3 Sound from you TV. If you want to hear your PS3 sound from your SONY BRAVIA you need to buy an optical cable (also called TOSLINK) to connect from your PS3 to the SONY BRAVIA.

Hope that helps!
