Ps3 and TV resolution issue

I have given up on the HDMI atleast for right now... The new issue at hand is that I own a 26inch Sanyo LCD Screen that is 720pi. My ps3 will only video out at 480pi standard definition when I try to change it to 720 the TV just pops around with its lil blue box saying No Signal. Kind of bummed, the ps3 looks nothing much different from a ps2 if I can't get the resolution going.

    Ahhhh Wonderful! Thank you so much. I was considering that option because of how the XMB allowed you to only choose resolutions if you chose to output through that sort of component cables. You have restored all hope that was formerly lost. Especially since where I bought from (movie Gallery) told me that they do not accept exchanges or refunds. Anyways, will Blu Ray still be a noticable difference from reg. dvd's with the R/G/B-R/W component cables?

If you are hooking up the console with the standard R/W/Y connection, you will only be able to get 480 resolution. You need to get the R/G/B-R/W Component cables from Sony to access HD.

And you're right HDMI + PS3 didn't work well for me either. The component cables will suit you just fine. I'm happy with them.

How do you use PS3 and DVD player with the Toshiba 32Dtu2 LCD TV?


The PS3 can be hooked up to the tv using either a HDMI cable or the old RCA (Yellow, Red, White) cables. If you are having problems viewing a picture or hearing sound, here is some trouble shooting you might want to try.

Connect the PS3 using both the HDMI and RCA cables. select the HDMI input on your tv. turn on the PS3. If you cant see a picture, press and hold the power button until you hear 2 beeps (this will take about 15 seconds). This resets the PS3 to the old RCA cables. Select the RCA input on your tv. Hopefully you can see the image and hear the PS3 now. Go to the settings on the PS3 and change the display settings to output video through the HDMI. Remember, your tv can only go as high as 1080i resolution, so you wont see anything if you select the 1080p resolution.

If this didn't work, you might have a bad signal though the HDMI cable. Unplug the tv and PS3 for atleast 30 minutes, and then connect the PS3 to the tv before you turn either one on.

If this doesn't help, then you might have a HDMI cable that isn't recognized by either your PS3 or your tv. Try replacing your HDMI cable.

Hope this helps!

My Sanyo dp32746 saids hdmi out of range when I hooked up my 160 GB PS3. It tells me to change my HDMI input resolution.


The video resolution from PS3 is too high for it to work, you need to lower your display to the native resolution of this TV. See your PS3 manual on how to adjust the output resolution.

When i hook up my ps3 to an emerson 19 in tv with an hdmi cable it says format not supported


Hi,
LCD Emerson only support screen with a 1440 x 900 720p resolution.
And PS3 has support 1080p or full HD.
You must arrange output HDMI resolution to 1440 x 900 or to 720p.
thanks.

How do i hook up my ps3 with tv through hdmi as it keeps goin to blue screen


  1. Connect the PS3 standard composite video connector (yellow RCA plug) to the TV composite input and switch the TV to that input. Leave the HDMI cable connected.
  2. Make sure the PS3 is off. Turn it on and hold the power button until you get two beeps (at least 5 seconds). The PS3 navigation screen should be shown on the TV. If not, switch the TV back to HDMI; the screen should be displayed at 480i resolution.
  3. Go to the settings menu. Select Display Settings, then Video Output Settings, then press the X button on your controller.
  4. The on-screen instruction should be "Select the type of input on your TV." Select HDMI, then press the '> (solid right triangle) button on your controller.
  5. You will be offered the choice of Automatic or Custom settings. Try Automatic first (if there is a problem at the end, start over and pick Custom the second time).
  6. Press the X button. You will get a screen asking you to confirm the changes. Press the X button again to confirm.
  7. You may get a screen asking for the resolution setting. IMPORTANT: if your TV's maximum resolution is 720p or lower, do not pick a higher resolution. The TV may not display properly or may not display at all (blue screen). Pick the highest resolution your TV can display.
  8. Confirm this by selecting "Yes" and pressing the X button.
  9. The settings list should now read Connector Type HDMI; Resolution Standard (NTSC); 480p; 720p; 1080p (if applicable). Press the X button to confirm.
  10. You may be offered a choice of audio outputs; you can use HDMI or something else, depending on your setup. Confirm the setting and press X one more time.

At this point, the PS3 should send its signal to the HDMI port following restart. If your TV has more than one HDMI input, make sure you select the one connected to the PS3.

Your TV cannot support 1080p that the PS3 is sending out to the HDMI, try lowering the PS3 resolution. A lot of people have this probelm if you Google the PS3 VIDEO issue.

Unable to use PS3 on HD channel


1. Connect PS3 to your TV
2. Select the Correct HDMI input on your TV
3. Press and hold the [power] button on the PS3
4. perform setup.

These are the steps to setup the video output for the PS3, It is possible that it is set to a resolution that your TV does not support.

If this doesn't work, you may want to contact Sanyo to ask if they have some protection circuit for the HDMI input. Some manufactures TV's will deactivate(turn OFF) the HDMI input under certain conditions. Unplugging the TV or some other procedure usually turns it back ON.
