Gioteck vx1 wireless controller will not pair up to my ps3


This works: Turn ps3 on. Plug the controller into the usb cable and into ps3. Then plug the dongle into other usb port. After a short time the dongle will flash quickly (this means it's in pairing mode - when the dongle flashes slowly it's too late). Press the PS/Home button as soon as you see the dongle fast flashing. All the LED's on the controller will begin to flash and after a short time one (or two) will remain solid. Immediately disconnect the charging usb lead from the controller and again the LED's will flash, push the PS/Home button again and after a short time one or two will remain solid. The controller should now be working. If the controller fails to respond repeat this process but make sure that you disconnect the dongle and reinsert (so you can see the fast flashing lights and try again).

Only sound comes when i connect HDMI cable to my TV for the ps3


you need to select High definition output on the PS3. Connect it via hdmi and via standard lead switch the tv to standard so you can see the picture then select high definition output. Switch over to hdmi and you should see a picture

I am getting standard definition but not hd


Hi there,

Is your TV capable of displaying high definition? Is it an HDTV? If so, go to the Settings on your XMB (Press the Home Button) and into the Settings menu. Look for the option which says Display Settings. This will guide you through the configuration wizard and determine the best possible output for your TV. If it doesn't output at least 720p then your TV is not capable of displaying high definition.

Hold power button for five seconds, allow system to reboot with default video settings. Common occurrence when moving PS3 from standard to high definition and back.

My ps3 is not working because when i plug in all the leads the picture or sound does not work so i bought a new cable but it still does not work I think it may be because i plugged it in to a hd tv then...


Ok, please follow these steps :

Step 1. Turn the PS3 off into standby (red light on)

Step 2. Press and hold the power button. It will beep once when you first press it then beep again 5 seconds later, let go of the power button when you hear this second beep

Step 3. Wait for the PS3 to restart

This basically resets the video output back to standard definition where you should now be able to set it up properly.

Hope this helps

How can i hook up a ps3 to a tv


Hello,

"These are the optional uses of a Playstation 3, not just playing video games this is a lot cooler. Video connections on a Playstation 3, now this is the back of a standard Playstation 3. I'll show you really quick; we have our power, AV outs, digital audio, LAN for internet, HDMI out so pretty much if you want to get high definition picture quality you're going to have to go out and get yourself a HDMI cable. It will go from HDMI the Playstation 3 to the back of your HDTV, that is your HDMI cable this will carry audio and video in one cable. Of course if you want to go on the internet you have the choice of the wireless if you do buy a wireless, if not you can just plug in your inthernet cable right there. We'll skip the audio for now cause that is the next chapter and we'll go to the EV out, you have two options here if you still want high definition video and you don't have HDMI capabilities on your TV you can still go component. If your TV will allow it, component is the RGB that is your red, blue and green cables so with these cables you can still have a high definition signal broadcast to your TV through this output right here. If you are using the standard TV standard definition you don't have the capabilities of high definition yet it doesn't matter you'll get there. Just go ahead and grab one of the standard cables which is your RCA cables and this will be your yellow, white and red. This of course yellow is for the video, white is for your left audio and red is for your right audio so with these cables you can plug up to any standard TV even a high definition TV but only give you standard definition picture quality. So these are the video connections on a Playstation 3."

Please rate the solution. Thanks for contacting Fixya.

Samsung 32 tv doesn't read hdmi cable with the PS3


I have samsung also. You connect your plugs in the back where they go. Go to your settings on your PS3 and make sure that it is 1080p or 720p, whichever your tv is. And your tv will adopt those settings to recieve high definition data from your gaming system. Hope it works for ya! If so, please leave me feedback!

PS3 USA compatibility in India for running Bluray moviea and game


As long as the movies and games are the actual things and not some burnt rip-off discs you'll be fine. The movie companies do this so their stuff isn't copied illegally.

Merry Christmas!
