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!

Can't get any sound when playing discs through a blu ray player connected via a hdmi cable and DVI adapter.


The DVI adapter stops the audio. Use the audio out ports on the bluray player to connect an audio pair cable to the tv.

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

PS3 not working on reg tv's after HDMI use on LCD HD tv


Shelley,  the fix for this is simple! Hold down the power button for about 5 seconds and the system will beep. This resets the video setting for your ps3 from HD too whatever the current cables are that you are using too hook up too the tv. This works on my PS3 which I just bought about 3 months ago and should work with the older ones.

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 am a TV repair technician and what you are experiencing with your plasma and PS3 is a HDMI compatibility problem. The Philips plasma and the PS3 electronic handshaking (EDID) are not right. This happens alot with an older version of HDMI like 1.1(Philips Plasma) and a newer version of HDMI 1.3 (PS3). A tv firmware or PS3 firmware update will not resolve the problem. I would recommend using the HD component video cables and that should work just fine for playing High Definition BluRay movies.
