    from standby, press and hold the power button until you hear a second beep. this reset the display settings, and may work.

    also,
    Turn it off and restart it again. If that doesn't work hold the power
    botton for 5 seconds until you hear a beeps. That will reset it.


    I'm not sure if this is HDMI Dropout from your TV since I don't know what connection you're using to your TV.

First of all, you have to tell the PS3 what connection you are using. Next, the Blu-Ray format is encoded in 1080p, so if your tv does not support 1080p you will have to go in to the setup menu on the PS3 and tell it to use a format your TV can handle.

You have to put the TV in 3D mode and some of the Blue ray players have to change the setting also check the owners manual for how to change to 3D mode

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.

Older Onkyo Compatability with newer HDTV


Hi rmccormick,
That Tv with the PS3 is a fantastic setup, The tv has one of the best picture quality ratings and the 4ms response time is great for fast action video and video games. The PS3 is a good decision for the Blu-Ray player, for the price you get a great game console along with the player, the drawback is that the PS3 runs alot hotter than a stand alone player, it will need to be well ventilated.
Your reciever will work but you won't be able to watch Blu-Ray in 1080p and that is the pupose of the PS3, you have to use the HDMI output on the PS3 to get 1080p and I doubt your reciever has HDMI, if it does your set if not I would buy a newer model with Dolby 5.1 and HDMI support, or if you want the best go with Dolby TrueHD.  
You will need HDMI cables.
Let me know if this helps and please rate this solution. Lone99star

Blue ray wont play movies on new tv


Are you sure the tv is 1080p capable? Usually when "mode is not supported" is displayed, it means that the tv can not handle the signal format that is being input to it. If you are using HDMI, then signal formatting is usually handled automatically. If you are using component video, you will probably have to tell the PS3 to step down the signal to either 1080i or 720p.

Toshiba 32AV500U HDMI issues


The Toshiba 32AV500U cannot display 1080p. Hook up your PS3 to your computer monitor, provided that it can display 1080p, or some other TV that can, then change your Video Output settings under Settings> Display Settings and uncheck 1080p, which will allow the PS3 to display in 1080i. Once you do that, then hook up the Toshiba via HDMI and it will work with no problem.

Blue ray movie not clear


The refresh rate of the TV is not fast enough! For very high resolution viewing, a very fast refresh rate is required.
