Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

I just bought a new 40 in toshiba lcd 1080p tv and when i got home i disconnected my 42 in panasonic plasma tv and also disconnected my ps3 from it where it worked perfectly always before.... Well when i went to hook it up on my new tv nothing shows up on hdmi 1(input channel). So i plug in my av plugs and reset the xbox and it works fine on input 1. Than at that point if I restart the ps3 it says it detects a hdmi device and asks if i want to switch to the optimal settings. So i select yes and than the screen goes black and stays black so i switch to hdmi 1 also and nothing happens and it says unsupported video signal.... So i want to know how to get my new tv to work and if i need a newer stronger hdmi cord bc in the manual it says something about needing a category 2 hdmi cord or something..... Please help me I am very upset

Is it ok to play ps3 on plasma tv. I just bought a 50 inch lg plasma and don't want to mess it up. Its a 1080p 600hz


I have 2 50" plasma tvs. One is a Samsung and the other is a LG. I play my PS3 on both and have not had any problems whatsoever. You can also look through the manual and it should also give you some facts about hooking up a console system to it. You should also have different settings for the TV such as standard, sports, game mode, etc... So you can set the tv up on however you wanted to view it. Have fun gaming!

Is it ok for me to connect my ps3 to a plasma television to play video games


If your plasma is newer then about 3 or 4 years ago, AND! it's had a proper break in, then no... no worries at all... You might get a little image retention, but it'll go away after a couple hours... If it's a new plasma, make SURE you have given it a proper break-in (about 200 hours of non-static images)... FWIW... I have a panasonic TH-42PHD6UY that I use for all my gaming (except PS3 cause my LCoS set is 1080p and plasma isn't), and have used it ONLY for gaming for about the last 2 or 2 1/2 years... I've NEVER had a problem with burn-in....

The sound goes out randomly when I'm using my ps3 I have a 42 inch sanyo and am connected with the hdmi cable. It's done it since I got the tv


When one thinks of quality home theater projectors, few brands cometo mind. Sony, JVC and Panasonic are some that do. Sanyo, on the otherhand, may not be on one's short list. However, they've been makinghigh-quality, affordable home theater projectors for years. Theirlatest offering, the PLV-Z3000 reviewed here, is no exception.Retailing for $2,999 - though depending on where you shop, that figuremay be much lower - the PLV-Z3000 is among the most affordablefull-featured 1080p projectors in the marketplace today. The PLV-Z3000 is a full-resolution HD projector (1920x1080p) with areported

No picture or vido


Ok. Hold down the on/off switch for at least 5 seconds (or until it beeps). It will reset the display settings to the original format. you have to do this when switching back and forth from HDMI to YRGB. This should fix the problems.

Hope it Helps

PS3 not working on 42'' JVC via HDMI cable port


I have the PS3 and this TV and it works....Try this.

1. Turn ON TV
2. Connect HDMI from TV to PS3
3. Select the correct HDMI input on the TV for the PS3(important)
4.Turn OFF PS3 if it is ON.
5. hold [I/O] Power button on PS3
6. Wait about 5 second and you should get the "HDMI Detected" or some similar message.
7. Configure the HDMI output for the PS3

Also, If you set the PS3 to "auto" for hdmi, it may set the resolution to 1080i. You may want to deselect everthing but the 1080P.

Most PS3 games do not support 1080p, so if u have a 1080p supporting game, only then can u do it.

Can not get HDMI to work on PLAYSTION 3 on my Philips 42' Plasma


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,

Ps3 reset


turn the PS3 off. hold the power button for at least 5 seconds or until you hear another beep.
This should reset all your ps3's settings.  If you have an HDMI connection, wait for a couple of seconds so that the PS3 recognizes and negotiates the right video output for your TV.
