Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

I usually use an hdmi cable and I recently changed all the settings over to 720p. I am now trying to use a regular cable on another tv with my playstation and I can't even get a screen. It's not loading at all. Would changing the settings have anything to do with it not starting up or do you think I now have a problem with my playstation?

You have to change the video settings for the type of cable you are using to connect the PS3 to the tv you are using. One way to reset back to default is to hold down the power button when you turn the system on and everything should go back to it's default settings.

Vizio tv says no signal on any of the hdmi ports


Unfortunately, you fried the HDMI controller. Not necessarily part of the power supply "main board." (Not sure which board is the HDMI controller in your specific TV. It's usually a separate board by itself). Easiest workaround is to use the "Component" cable connectors. The downside is you only get 720P. However, most cable/satellite and _all_ antenna signals are only 720P anyway. Most people only see 1080P when viewing Blu-Ray discs. Aside from replacing the HDMI controller, the cheapest workaround for multiple source connections is to buy an HDMI to Component Converter A/V box, which allows you to connect multiple devices to one box with one set of Component cables connecting to the TV. Then select various "sources" via the box.

Invalid format floating on screen on LG 32" how to resolve????


If you are using HDMI, the source resolution could be too high. Your TV is only 720p so if your equipment is set for 1080p, it will not display. Connect the composite (yellow) video lead to the TV and change to that input. Use the equipment's menu function and verify the resolution. Make sure it is set for 720p. Also try a different HDMI cable, yours may have a bad lead inside.

I am trying to commect to my PS3 to an LG LCD tv which supports 1080P (Full HD). but as the game starts and when i check the TV it says 720P although the game and the TV both supports full HD. Do i need...


Hello there. There's a few possibilities. First, the obvious, do you have it set to 1080P in the Display Settings options? Secondly, are you using an HDMI cable? You need to be using HDMI to play games in full 1080P. I use the component cables (The red, green and blue ones) for my PS3 and when I'm on the XMB (that's the PS's desktop so to speak) it's displayed in 1080P but games will not play in 1080P, only 720P. Any old HDMI cable will do the trick, so don't get suckered by the price if you are going to pick up a cable!

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.
