Ps3 unsupported video format why do I get this error message when I turn my ps3 on.


tkrjka

The reason that you are getting this error is because the video setting on your PS3 got change to something that you TV does not support.
The link below will help you put the PS3 into recovery mode to reset the video. Note you will want to have the AV cable plugged in when you do this.

Dose not show on screen anymore. son said he was asked to change something. he did. cant play anymore.Must be some setting that was changed. Cant get it to show on T.V. TV says unsupported format. HELP


Not sure what you are talking about, this is a bit vague..... try this, on the back of the xbox there is a switch on the plug that goes to the TV, if the TV is not HI-DEF and you are using just the red + white + yellow plugs, then switch to TV, if your using the red + white + blue + green + red then switch to HDTV.
Your Son could have also switched a setting on the dashboard to use HI-DEF, if he did, maybe switching back the TV mode on the TV out plug may correct the issue.
Kids love to play with things! lol...

Original xbox continous blinking green light, no eject & loading


sounds like a bad cable between the console and the TV, the XBOX is notorious for having issues if the cable isn't the correct one (a Microsoft one) or damaged.

the flash green with nothing else happening can be a failed bios.. coma console variant. It's possible to fix it with a chip, but uneconomic considering the price of a working box these days. It can also be a failed ide controller or bad ram..whatever, it's normally a scrapper with these symptoms unless you have a good junkbox...
If you have an xbox that fell it's always worth changing over the dvd drives, as they can cause weird faults as well, (as mentioned above re: unknown disks) as the green flashing is the usual "loading disk" message.

Games will not load ps3


here is one of the best answers that I ran across in the past about said issue.

this is what i would do :
First of all, try playing all of your games and see if its just one disk or ur ps3, following that i would say u put in a blu-ray movie and check if that works, if it doesn't, then u are in serious trouble ( not really!). Get a USB Memory Stick( u know one of those little things u plug in a computer and can save all of ur stuff in) save ur important stuff. and then after that reset ur system settings, u can do that by:
Settings> System Settings> Restore System Settings
after that try it and if it doesnt work, go again to system settings but this time around, go to restore ps3 system, u can do that by:
Settings> Sysem Settings> Restore PS3 System.
it should be noted that all of ur stuff will be deleted, so i hope u saved all of ur game saves on that usb flash stcik thing.
if it doesnt work then do the following:
call sony:
SCEA Consumer Services
1-800-345-SONY (7669)
Monday - Saturday 6:00 AM - 8:00 PM PST
Sunday 7:00 - AM 6:30 PM PST
and tell them about ur problem, they will tell u to restore system settings or restore ps3 system, and thats what i told u, if it doesnt work, they will ask for ur adresss ( i hope u live in North America) and will ask u ur email, phone number and all that. After that they will send u a box( takes around 4-5 business days for the box to get to ur house, but it really matters where u live) and u put ur ps3 in that box, send it back, and then they will fix it, if they cant they will either send u a refurbished ps3 which is someone elses ps3 but dont worry its as good as brand new or if not, they will send u a new ps3. which will take sbout 4-5 business days, and again depends on where u live!

I have have a playstation 3 and when I hooked it up to my tv as I normally do there is no picture or sound. I then tried switching to my HDMI cable with the same results. Yes, I made sure I set my tv input...


Try powering on you unit press and hold the power button and the eject button for 30 sec unti the power light begins to flash thats going to reset the setting of your ps3, and if that does not work i would rec> sending it out so sony if its still under warranty or exchanging it from where u bought it.
