In the Main menu screen for the playstation, navigate to
- Display settings
-Video Output Settings
Press X to select
It will ask what type of connector on your TV, choose component/D-Terminal
press x to continue
it will ask to select a setting mode, you can choose automatic or custom, Choose custom,
x to continue
you should be given a list of resolutions, check all those that you want to work up to 1080i (1080p is only on HDMI)
press X to continue, follow instructions to finish setup,
You will need to turn on the PS3 and hook it up with rca so you can access the console menus. Turn it on and get to the main dashboard.
1. Go to Settings -> Display Settings (not video)
2. Select [ Video Output Settings ]
3. Select HDMI
4. Select Resolution
5. Select Screen Size
6. Save the settings
7. Reboot the console.
This should resolve the problem. We've seen PS3 consoles that would not reset by performing a hard reset. We were able to resolve this issue through the settings menu though.
Let me know if it is still giving you issues.Hank
I have noticed using an HDMI cable that with some of the newer tvs you have to set up the tv also to enable HDMI for a game system. Like you said before internet tv and blueray dvd player work fine. Try adjusting the settings on the tvs themselves. I have a 50in DLP mitsubishi, and had a very troubling time getting my ps3 to work on that particular tv set while it worked flawlessly on other sets. And what I had to do was enter my tv setup menu and then power on my ps3 with both my AV and HDMI cables connected, it would pick up the AV first. Then I would alter the video settings on the PS3 for HDMI, and unplug the AV cable. Exit the tv menu and then reenter it. Then I had to setup my HDMI port from the tv to game in order for it to work, where you can set options ar usually like cable/dvd/sat, and so on. Without my TV being set to game that way it would not work. Try this and see if it helps. Good Luck.
Hook it up with the component cable and then hold the power button on the console until something comes up on screen. Make sure you have selected the component input on your tv or else you wont get anything anyway.
What holding the power button does is it resets the video settings to the lowest common denominator and then you can reconfigure it for the optimal picture quality of the component cables.
If that doesn't work double check the component connections on the back of the TV and just make sure they are where they should be and that no accidents were made while hooking it up.
Please post the results from these steps here so that I know what happened.
Are you using HDMI cable?
Have you tried your ps3 in any other HDTV?
Heres why I ask you this. PS3 has some compatibility issues with some TVs (or Tvs have it with ps3....that is controversial xD) so if you happen to be so unlucky to have bought an HDTV which ps3 has issues with, you`ll have a problem (as was my case)
In my case whenever I switch resolutions or enter a game the HDTV starts flashing between the ps3 screen and some blank screen with dots. I have to remove the hdmi cable and connect it again and it solves. :D
So please answer my 2 questions in order to discard some possibilities.
