Question about ViewSonic N3000W 30 in. HD-Ready LCD Television

1 Answer

Trying to hook up my PS3 to my Viewsonic N3000W to enable me to watch HD BluRay Discs. There is no HDMI socket at the rear of the telly. Disc plays but HD picture quality looks the same as ordinary DVD. Can anyone suggest which cable I would need to see the benefits of BluRay and how I would go about setting this all up? Not sure if I have to change settings on the TV? I already have Sky + & a Surround sound system in use.

Your TV has a DVI input connector, but no HDMI as you noted. Adapters (fondly called "dongles") are available to convert from the DVI connector to an HDMI jack so you can connect your HDMI source. Search for "dvi to hdmi adapter" with your favorite search engine and you will find them.

As for settings, this set has 720p resolution. Make sure your source is set accordingly, and you should be set to get the best quality you can with the connections available.

Please take a moment to give this solution a fixya rating if you've found it what you needed, and thanks for asking here!

If you have an hdmi output in the back of your tower pc then you can just plug this into your telly to get your pc images on your telly. If you have an older monitor with a different type of connection then you will not be able to connect your pc to your telly.

Hope this helps

I am trying to watch a blu ray dvd bit it wont allow me to play it the player just ejects the disc. do I need a software update


Not sure what you are playing it on. A BLURAY disc needs a BluRay compatible disc player, PS3 has one built in. Most PC DVD drives dont play BluRay as standard. Normal HOME DVD players of course cant play them either.

You may need to enter the setup menu on the PS3 and enable the decoding for blu-ray discs.

Try using a cleaner disc to clean the lens assembly. If this dose not produce results, replace the entire optical lens assembly.

Contact Sony for this repair.

Cant get 42''lcd telly to let me play ps3 threw hdmi cable


You will most likely have to contact your LG dealer to fix this. The problem is due to the HDMI input not recognising the playstation, the cure for this is a software upgrade for External Device IDentification (EDID), which can only be done by a service centre.

I posted to your problem with a similar one. I was able to get my PS3 to work by:

1.) Powering down both the PS3 and ViewSonic LCD
2.) Unplugging the power cables to both PS3 and LCD
3.) Waiting at least 10 or more seconds
4.) Plugging in the power cables to both PS3 and LCD
5.) Turning on the ViewSonic LCD
6.) Turning on the PS3 and holding down the power button until the beep

After this sequence I heard the bootup audio and the menu appeared on the screen- which detected the HDMI connection to my LCD.

Very odd.. I've had my PS3 in the same place for months and just today this happened.

I wanted to post my success. Best of luck!

Cant play blu-rays on lcd hdtv connected with hdmi


The software playing the bluray disc (PowerDVD) will only play it on the primary display. You will have to set your tv to be your primary display in order to watch the movie.

This only happens with bluray and HD-DVD discs.

Cant get hdmi for ps3 to work on my jvc hd 52g887


Had same problem with Panasonic PT60LC14 tv when connecting by HDMI cord to my PS3 and a blue ray disc was playing. First, read your tv manual to see what video inputs it supports . Then read the PS3 online manual (section on "video output settings").

For me I found out that my tv only supported 1080i (along with 480i/p, 780p) and the ps3 manual says blue ray outputs 1080p, so my blue ray discs will not play on my tv according to the PS3 manual. PS3 manual says to restart the ps3 (power off, then power on and HOLD for 5 seconds) - then the standard video output settings should be reset. Hopefully the ps3 menu will pop up at least. I haven't tried this yet but if it doesn't work, i'll may try to reset PS3 video out settings manually first using another tv that works with it ..
