I had the same thing with my PS3 on a samsung 40". Try pressing the power button down on the PS3 for 5 secs or more, until it beeps (Not sure if it's one beep or a series of). I think this is how you reset the system and it should automatically recognise and reset the resolution size to HD on you're screen. Hope this helps,

Andy.

I was using my ps 3 on my plasma tv connected by a HD lead. I then hooked it up to another tv using a scart lead and now it won't work. I hooked it back up to the plasma tv and it works fine. I need it to...


Got to settings in the PS3 Crossbar and go to display settings. The first one should say video output settings, click on it. It should say your connection type is HDMI. Select component/D Terminal and hit change. The screen should go blank. During this time plug it in to your other t.v by the scart. It should say "Can you read this screen?" hit yes and there you go. To go back to HDMI do the same.

How to connect nintedo to plasma tv


Hi,things you will need,
  • Video game console
  • HDMI cable
  • Audio/visual cable.
  1. Plug in your video game console's power source.
  2. Connect one end of the game console's audio/visual cable into the corresponding slot on the console if you have an older game console. If you have a newer console, insert one end of an HDMI cable into your console's "HDMI OUT" port.

  3. Plug the red and white ends of the audio/visual cable into the corresponding red and white audio inputs located on the back of your Vizio plasma TV if you have an older game console. Plug the yellow cable into the yellow "Video In" input. Depending on which model of Vizio TV you have, the yellow input may be located either right next to the audio inputs or it could be located a few ports away.

  4. Plug an HDMI cable into one of your TV's "HDMI IN" ports, if you have a newer console.

  5. Turn on your video game console and your Vizio plasma TV. Press the "TV/VIDEO" button on your remote to cycle through the various inputs. You should eventually get to an input that's displaying your video game console's home screen.
I think that will do.

Have nice day.

My PS3 wont display.


you could use the hdmi cable or the composite cable(like the old playstation one with the 3 leads but different colours,not red,white,yellow.)
both would be better for a plasma.
make sure your screen can utilise 1080 for hdmi.
if 720 or 480 use the composite cable.

My PS3 only works on my Plasma tv's HDMI channel. None of my other tv's have this HDMI channel. Why doesnt my PS3 work on any other channels or my other tv's? Could anyone help out with that?


When you have the ps3 hooked up through av cables on crt tv not hdmi. Continue to hold power until the console beeps again and this will reset which audio video output resolution back down so it can be seen and heard. Hope this helpes.

HDMI PROBLEMS


Ive got a similar problem. My HDTV has a compatibility issue with the ps3 and whenever I enter a game or switch resolutions TV starts flashing between dotted white screen and ps3 screen. I have to remove the HDMI cable and then put it in again in order to fix it. (Or if you are rich just get another HDTV :D)
I would try it in another HDTV (different model and brand) to discard it being a problem with the HDMI port.
