SOURCE: ps3 hdmi is saying format not supported on my 32"

there maybe some problem with ur tvs resolution. ps3 outputs full hd high resolution video(1080p) through its hdmi. may be your tv is not supporting that resolution. connect ps3's component video out to ur tv and then try. if it ask for any resolution selection. select 720p or 1080i, above that resolution ur tv will not support. ur tv is hd ready one, not full hd. ps3 's hdmi out is full hd (1080p).
or try this
connect ur ps3 to any full hd tv and then goto video setup of ur ps3. change resolution to 1080i (down scaling ). then connect to ur tv via hdmi. surly u will get the video.

SOURCE: sylvania tv says format not supported when ps3 is

If it's one of the original PS3's (might be the same for the new) you can hold the power button down when you're powering it up until it beeps and then let go of the power button. This will make the PS3 search for what video devices are plugged in. If you're using the HDMI it will say "An available HDMI device was detected. Do you want to output video and audio using HDMI?", and you wan to say YES. Then it will automatically set the resolution (should set to 1080i) and give you 30 seconds to confirm the video works by saying YES again. This TV will not support a 1080p output so if you try to change the PS3 to 1080p resolution it will not work.

I have also received this message when I had a bad HDMI cable.

Playstation 3 hard disk files corrupted???

hey ash,

ps3 Hard drive needs to be manually reformatted and checked for bad sectors.

as what youve said, you already formatted it and yet it still says there is a corrupt system file.

when i say "manually formatted" you have to clearly take the hard drive out and format it using another pc or ps3.

My ps3 keeps on saying your hard drive is corrupted

Likely, your HDD is corrupted. Before you attempt to reformat the HDD, and will thus lose all your information, if you have a spare laptop harddrive laying around, try swapping them -- the PS3 uses regular SATA HDDs. If that works, then the problem is with the original PS3 HDD, and needs to be formatted. If the new drive does not work either, then the problem is with the PS3 itself, and it will need to be serviced.
When the time comes to format the drive, check this article below --

Hard disk corruption. says press x to resore but wont load past 18%

Try this:

turn on ps3 press x to restore on 0 % quickly pull out hdd. then wait may take up to an hour a message will come up to formate hdd. put hdd back in and press yes to format this process worked with in seconds for me but can take longer. it does work but you will lose all saved stuff but online stats will still be on the system. good luck hope it works for u to.

or this:
New fix (possibly), and it doesn't take a laptop or a friend's PS3 to do.

Simply remove the hard drive from your PS3, and turn on the console. It should display a screen saying the hard drive will need to be reformatted. Then, plug the hard drive back into your PS3, and allow it to reformat. Your save game data will be erased, but you should be able to use your PS3 again.

whoever has a problem withe their ps3 needing to be reformatted just take out your hdd when the restore comes up, then press x, it will take a will before the ps3 tells u to insert a hdd to be formatted (took me 12 minutes)

good luck

Not saving games lost files seems to be corrupted

You can try to reformat the entire hard drive, or you can buy a new hard drive.

To reformat the drive, in the PS3 menu:
NOTE: This will erase everything you saved on the hard drive.

1) Go to the Settings menu, then select System Settings.
2) Select Format Utility, then select Format Hard Disk.
3) Select Quick Format

To replace the Hard Drive, buy any 2.5 inch notebook hard drive that has a serial ATA connection. Then remove the old hard drive from the left side of the PS3 and install the new hard drive.

Hard disk is currupted on play station 3 any way 2 fix this problem

Hello. The PS3 should say that it's corrupted and ask you to press X to reformat it. If it keeps doing that then you need to take it out and use a USB external drive case and reformat it on your PC. Just plug it in and click on Start > Computer > right click on the drive and click format.

Or you can just replace it and upgrade it at the same time.

I wish you the best of luck. Thanks!!
