    Hi,

    Do you know what you got your PS3 set to for tv output?

    If you are setting it for HD 1080i or 1080p then you cannot get this with that tv. The maximum resolution that TV can display is
    1440 (H) × 900 (V)

    HD mode runs in either:

    1080i or 1080p - [ 1,920 x 1,080 ]

    720p - [ 1,280 x 720 ]

    So if you can get to the setup screen with another tv or cable try setting it to 720p mode.

    Generally the error message you are getting inficates that the PS3 is trying to push a picture to the TV in a resolution the TV cannot display as it is too high! Have you experimented with all the resolutions ?

    Another issue you may have to contact Hannspree direct on this but I have seen many TV's that cannot display correctly over HD cables.

    As these monitors are so new on the market they have not yet generated much feedback from users on how well (or not) they are working with PS3 / Xbox360 etc..

    You may only be able to get the higher resolutions via the component cables.

    Try the HD cable at the lowest possible setting.

    Just as a reference for you take a read at this post regarding ACER TV and a simular issue:

My monitor was working perfectly fine until I unplugged it to play on ps3 so when i did the ps3 wouldnt connect i tried holding down the ps3 button nothing so i plugged back into laptop no connection.


Have you used the HDMI cable with the PS3 before? it may be configured to use the AV connection. If so plug in an AV lead, then you would need to find in the settings to change the output to HDMI.

The HDMI cable may not work

Press windows key and P to switch between monitor modes

Try those and post back if you need more help.

IS THERE ANY WAY TO CONNECT A PS3 TO THIS MONITOR?


Yes, there is. It's actually fairly simple, but there is one problem you may run into. Before bothering to buy any of the adapters or try and set anything up, check your monitor's specs and be sure it's HDCP compliant. Without this little detail, a PS3 will not play on any screen.

Now once your sure your monitor is HDCP compliant, your going to need a few things.

First, your going to need an VGA to HDMI cord, or an DVI to HDMI cord. Your monitor uses both these connections, so feel free to go with whichever works for you. You can find cords like this for cheap on Amazon, and I can vouch for this one personally, I use it and it's not given me a bit of trouble.

Now, unless your using speakers that already hooked up to the monitor, your going to need an RCA to 3.5mm adapter (Your everyday headphone jack is a 3.5mm plug.) They are really cheap, and can be found all over the place. Amazon, your local electronics store, EBay, all have these little handy objects. I can again vouch for this one personally, and I love using it, so keep this little thing handy. (Think headphones, when you don't want to use speakers.) NOTE: Make sure you get a 2xRCA to 1x3.5mm adapter, check the link above to see a picture of what your looking for.

Now, once you have both these pieces, it's time to set up your connections.


Step 1. Plug the VGA/DVI to HDMI (Let's call this Video Cord), into your monitor and PS3.

Step 2. Plug the original cord that came with your PS3 into the console as well. This cord should have an end that plugs into a TV, with one each of a Yellow, Red, and White plug. These are RCA jacks.

Step 3. Now take your little RCA to 3.5mm adapter and plug the White and Red ends into it. Don't worry about the Yellow end, this is the video plug and you don't need it now that your using an HDMI connection.

Step 4. Plug your speakers into the 3.5mm plug on your adapter. Power on the speakers.

Step 5. Now turn on the Monitor first, and then PS3. You should see the screen come on, and the PS3 should be telling you it found an HDMI connection, and would you like to switch to it. Select Yes and press X.

Step 6. Now that you can see what's on your PS3, go into the settings section of the menu. Click down to the Sound Settings choice, near the bottom, and press X. Press X again to enter the Audio Output Settings. Click down to the Audio Input Connector/ SCART / AV MULTI choice, and the press -> on the D-pad. Now press X once more and your all set!

Now go back to the menu and move around a bit, you should hear the clicking sounds as you switch to a new item. Start up a game and enjoy the sounds and sights, because your finished.

Good luck and have fun, and please feel free to leave any comments or further questions you might have in the Comments. Feedback is always welcome.

I do not know how to find the AV program, so as


odusotegeorg

I am not sure what you mean by the "AV program". I am going to take a guess that you mean the video input channel. Well with monitors they really do not have those.

If you can let me know the exact model of monitor you have an can double check your connections and setting for you.

Now since you have a PS3 the best connection for you to be using is the DVI port on the monitor. Now since most monitors do not have an HDMI port you will neeed to get a HDMI to DVI cable.

Let me know if this is how you have it connected and are still having trouble getting the monitor to work.

How do i connect my Hannspree 22" monitor to my Dell Inspiron 1150 Laptop?


On the back of your laptop there is a vga connector, to the left are two(2) usb connectors and the right is your network connector . You need a vga cord (if you bought the monitor new it should include one.) Plug the cord into this port and into the back of the monitor. Plug the monitor in and the laptop should recognize thatthere is an external monitor connected and switch the video output to that monitor.

My monitor says cable not connected


If it like my monitor, same hookups as yours, then when you want to use the hdmi port you need to disconnect the dvi cable. The monitor cannot read from hdmi & dvi when both are connected, Try this & see if your PS3 works. Good luck
