Dynex HDTV says not supported when PS3 is connected via HDMI

I've tried everything I can think of: 1. Reset PS3 video by holding the power button method 2. Tested with multiple known working HDMI cables 3. Tested on a second TV (LG) and it works fine 4. Tested a second PS3 on the Dynex and it works fine as well.

Have you tried changing the video output settings on the PS3? It may just be on a setting that the TV does not support. For instance, if the poutput setting is 1080P, and the TV only supports up to 1080i, you would get a "not supported" signal. Hook the ps3 to a tv that it works on...turn it on, go to settings- display settings-output settings- select HDMI as the connector type- if it asks for 3D tv size...select the size- now you need to set the resolution...select all resolutions that the TV supports, since it is a dynex...it is likely a 720p TV. So I would start by selecting only 720p, and then hook the system to the Dynex TV and see if it works now. If it works, you can go back in and attempt to select 1080i or 1080p to see if they work... but again, being a Dynex, it is probably only a 720p TV... The PS3 is likely trying to output a 1080i or 1080p signal...which that TV doesn't support.

Be sure to backup your settings/games saves by doing a System > Backup on your PS3 or you may lose your game saves! Also, this is a last resort procedure prior to exchanging/returning to Sony.

1. Power Off the PS3 via the power switch in back and power back on w/switch.

2. Hold Power Button on the Front until you hear 3 beeps.

3. Then go through the initial setup and then run a full Format via System > Format. (will take approx 3 1/1 hours). You may need to have our AV cables ready if your using HDMI (in case HDMI isn't detected after initial reset).

4. Restore your back-up you made prior to doing factory/hard reset (optional, if you created a back-up).

Hopefully this will solve your freezing problems.

Problems/symptons that this appears to have resolved:

- Freezing when doing anything
- No harddrive activity
- Freezing when trying to use onboard keyboard or bringing up keyboard
- Game/movie disc freezes system

Im trying to connect the newer ps3 to my dynex tv using the yellow,white and red cables. i plug it into the tv and hit video1 and it says "no signal detected" what do i do?


Are you coming from HDMI to AV?

If so:

Press and hold the power button until the systems shuts off. (wait 2 seconds)

Press and hold the power button again until you here 3 beeps. Let go.



It should ask you to connect your controller via usb and press the PS button in

the middle of your controller. There will be a menu with 6 options. Try 1-5.

Hdmi on my sony PS3 not working


Have you changed your HDMI settings recently? Make sure you are using the correct resolution supported by your HDTV. The audio settings can be changed independently to the display.

You can reset the display settings by turning off the PS3 and holding down the power button down for 10 seconds.

leave everything as it is and when your ps3 is on standby, Turn it on but hold down the power button for over 4 seconds and it runs the optimal settings screen, and then auto selects the best option for the cables you have fitted, hope this helps
