I had this problem before. I messed with the settings on my PS3 and My TV until the settings matched. My PS3 would show the home until I loaded a game. I turned off then on my PS3 to get to the settings. My TV manual had the types of videos it supported so I went with the second to highest setting it supported and it worked. Hope this helps.

When ever i try to play ps3 games on the mitsubishi hdtv 1080, the screen cuts to black with green hatchmarks. The PS3 home screen displays but as soon as i enter the game mode the screen goes black


Good day!

That is usually happens when the TV is not compatible to the PS3 because the graphics of the PS3 is very resolution.

The qualification standards of that TV is not reaching the higher resolution of PS3 even your TV is HDTV.

Thank you very much for using fixYa.

I have the ps3.60.After switching on and putting in dvd(blue ray) the tv screen shows ps3 on the right of tv screen then the ribbon across screen but does not progress any further, almost as though frozen...


it may be that your ps3 automaticly loads the disc and has already started to play it and it might be trying to change the resolution(happens to me all the time) try un pluging your lead then plug it back in
hope this helps

Blank Screen


It may be a resolution setting issue...the game may be outputting in a resolution that your tv doesnt support. Try going to your video settings and knocking the resolution back to 720p for your HDMI output....in settings under video, select your ouptut, and uncheck the boxes next to the types above 720p. Also make sure you have latest software update for ps3.
