Television and Sony Playstation

Can you clarify for me? It is true that the Sony Playstation 1 and 2 will not play on a flat screen TV and that you might ruin your TV?

Re: Television and Sony Playstation

No, this is an urban legend unless you have a flat panel TV and are leaving it on games with fixed graphics. For example, leaving the GT2 game and playing it for 8 hours straight on a plasma may burn in the speedometer, etc... but honestly even next gen consoles have this type of graphics. If you have a Plasma or older LCD, just DONT have graphics sit still, period. Also, pixellation issues lend people to believe that the large squares are signs of burn in. They arent, just that if staying the same color for a long time they make for NASTIER burn-in. Hope this helps!

No visual picture

If it's a setting on the PS3 then just hook it up to another T.V. set it back to default and hook it back up to your other T.V.

Games on Full HD

if you have a full hdtv then providing you set the playstation up in the settings menu to 1080p and use a hdmi cable then everything you play will be in hd (except ps1 and 2 games) but you can select to upscale these. all blu rays and ps3 games will be in full hd.

Playstation 3 hook up

If there is no picture on the TV screen: Back to top
  • Check that the input mode of the TV is appropriate for the connector in use on the PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system.
  • There may be a problem with the cable in use. Try using another cable that is compatible with the PLAYSTATION®3.
  • If the video output settings on the PLAYSTATION®3 do not match those of the cable or TV in use, there may be no picture. If the screen goes blank, turn off the system.
  • Then, with only the PLAYSTATION®3 and the TV connected, touch the system's power button for more than 5 seconds to turn the system back on. The video output settings will automatically be reset to the standard resolution.
If that does not help try contacting sony at
