Check the settings on both the ps3 and on the tv to see if they are all correct.

If the ps3 is connected and it doesn't show on the tv, unplug both the tv and the ps3. then plug them both in and turn on the tv first then the ps3 by holding the power button of the ps3 for about 10 seconds before it beeps then it should show up on the tv screen.

My ps3 wont show up on my tv screen it is a 42 inch plasma it will not show up it keeps saying invailed format what do i do?


Your 22 monitor is set up (most likely) with a max resolution on 1650x1050 and you ps3 stays set to that even when you use it on your dads 1080p TV (1920x1080) and since your 22 in monitor is a non-standard resolution (in the TV world that is ) ie 720p = 1280x720 and 1080p = 1920x1080 it has to adjust to the closest resolution (your ps3) but sometimes the auto switching of resolutions doesn't work like it should..it just doesn't work sometimes. I suggest that when you take it to your dads you adjust the resolution to 720p ahead of time (a resolution both the 22 monitor and tv should be able to handle ) and when you get to his house it should work at least enough to see everything and then when already there you can adjust up to the higher 1080p (1920x1080). Then adjust back to 720p before you go home again. Sorry for the long winded post.

Here is a link to resolutions explained in case it helps.

Unknown timing error


The video resolution from the PS3 is too high for the TV to display, you start the PS3 with lower resolution first and go up from there, you can Google how to set PS3 resolution on the web.

Does the emerson 32in. 720p support the ps3? does it show blu ray just fine?


Yes it will handle a ps3 and will show blue rays great but only in 720p not 1080 or nothing like that but if you want a real good TV for gamming and Blueray your would be more inclined to purchase a 1080 p TV from like samsung or sony.

hope this information helps.

Why does my toshiba tv doesnt read the ps3 by hdmi cable


This is because your PS3 is set for 1080p resolution and your TV only supports 720p...<br /> You need to change the setting in your PS3 to be 720p or 480p inorder to use it on Standard Tv's.<br />

PS3 wont go 1080i/720p


I don't think there is a way to set your resolution manually, bro. They do it all by auto. If I may make a suggestion... Turn off both the TV & PS3. Unplug your HDMI, then make sure both your TV & PS3 are turned ON. Now re-connect your HDMI. A TV tech once told me that these units "communicate" through the HDMI. This can only occure whilst they're up & running. This may help get you going on to 1080i.
p.s. PS3 games only output 720p, max! This isn't always the case for Blu Ray movies, but it is for games. Good luck!

Ps3 trouble


ok, i got it working... Ok...your problem is probably that when you're using it on the HDTV...you have the resolution set to an HD one (720p, 1080i, 1080P). A normal TV cannot display these. While it's connected to the HDTV,Before you connect it to your normal tv, you have to switch it back to 480i or 480p otherwise, your regular tv wont show a picture. So go to settings, display settings, and uncheck 720p, 1080i, 1080p. It will ask you if these are the settings you choose (and it's going to look funny on your HDTV) Accept the settings and turn it off. When you connect it to your Regular TV, you should now see a picture. Hope this helps!
