With the system on standby and the red light on, hold the powere button in front until the second beep. This is automatically clearing the old video setting.

To change this setting, you must exit the application and change your Video Output Settings from the display settings option in the Settings menu. Make sure the tv is not set on 720p/i and that it is set to 1080i. There has been issues with games that are 1080 downscaling the resolution. this can be confirmed by reading this article. if you provide me with the model of the tv. I can help assist you in ensuring its on 1080p. If you need further assistance please let me know after you try the following above. Thanks, Midwest-tek

Everything is connected, i can hear it, but cant see it


The previous answer is partly right. Are you both using HDMI, or are you changing connection method. If you change method, you must reset the graphics settings, which can be a bit tricky without a screen. Turn off your PS3, then Press AND HOLD on the Power Symbol for some time, or until you hear the beeps, and the flight flashes green, then, it should work.

HDMI-can't get tv to stay 1080i


This is natural, the PS3 does not stretch the signal like the Xbox does so games play at there native resolution (720p) there is nothing wrong with your TV or your PS3 and you would not see any difference in the games graphics if it was in 1080i. I'm playing my PS3 on a 46" 1080p TV and my PS3 games look great in 720p.

PS3 wont go 1080i/720p


I don't think there is a way to set your resolution manually, bro. They do it all by auto. If I may make a suggestion... Turn off both the TV & PS3. Unplug your HDMI, then make sure both your TV & PS3 are turned ON. Now re-connect your HDMI. A TV tech once told me that these units "communicate" through the HDMI. This can only occure whilst they're up & running. This may help get you going on to 1080i.
p.s. PS3 games only output 720p, max! This isn't always the case for Blu Ray movies, but it is for games. Good luck!

Problems getting PS3 installed


Hi to be honest it should work straight away, sometimes if the display settings are not matching it can cause problems, ie that the PS3 is set not to show 1080i 720, etc etc you may not get a picture. have you got a different TV you can try to check the settings on, if so enable all of the display settings and try each one
