Hook it back up to the HDTV and get into the menus. Get into the video menu and make sure that it is NOT set for progressive scan (normal TV's are Interlace).

I am trying to connect my ps3 to this TV. i have tried with AV ables and through HDMI but it does not seem to work. is there a problem with compatability?

PS3 outputs hi definition video through HDMI ie 1080p. Your tv will not support that resolution. Because its a HD ready one ie 1080i. If you wnat to connect the PS3 through the hdmi then you have to down convert the video output resolution of PS3 to 1080i. for that you have to connect the PS3 to any FULL HD tv and go to the HDMI video setup and down convert the resolution to 1080i. After that you can connect the PS3 to you tv. Surely you will get the video.

There is one more way to get the video in you tv. connect the PS3's component video output to the component video input of you tv and the audio output to the corresponding component audio input . Select component video input on the tv. You need a component video cable and a stereo RCA cable for that.

Is your girlfriend's television higher resolution? If so, the ps3 may be configured to output a signal that is too high for your mitsubishi. With the ps3 off, insert either the component or the rgb to the back. The turn on the main ps3 power switch so that the red led turns on. then hold down the 'power on' button. it will beep initially, then beep after about 3 seconds. This simply resets the output to the connected cable in a normal resolution.

If this fails go to settings>video output> and play around with the settings there. note you may have to do this on ur girlfriends tv to be able to see what you're doing...

Samsung lcd ln46a550pf3 no sound from hdtv reciever

ok your tv does not come with the very best sound, you have to get a receiver 7.1 or you can use the optical wire , that's if the system you are using has that option.
