SOURCE: Zenith Z42P3 "Invalid Format" message from upconverter DVD

Ran into the same problem with this DVD player and my LG tv. Try this:
Open the DVD tray, with the DVD tray open press the HDMI select button until the proper resolution for your tv is illuminated, put the DVD back in, close the tray and try again. Simple fix -- worked beautifully for me.

Good luck

SOURCE: I'm getting an invalid format

If you accidentally set your PS 3 for 1080p resolution, when the TV can only support 720p, you get a black screen. The Westinghouse TV I used displayed a message that said "invalid format." To reset the PS 3 to the standard AV format, you shut the PS 3 off. Then you hold the PS 3’s power button down for about 10 seconds. It will reset to standard video

Use the power button on the front of the console, to put it in standby mode (red light on).
Then press and hold the power button until you hear two beeps.

Nothing is wrong with it. It's only compatible with 24 Hz, 25Hz interlaced, 30Hz interlaced, and 50Hz.

Your PS3 is sending a 1080P signal to a TV that can only handle 720P or 1080i. Connect the PS3 using the A/V cables, fix the resolution and then go back to HDMI.

Cannot access TV. Screen shows HDMI 1. Invalid format.


Is it possible that whatever you have plugged into HDMI 1 requires a firmware update ? for example a dvd player etc

Or perhaps the tv cannot handle the resolution if this is the case you will want to set it at what the computer manual states what it can handle with HDMI

If not perhaps Unplug the tv for a few minutes, and then let it boot back up and trying your hdmi inputs again. This should reset the microprocessor.

Best of luck :)

When i plug up my playstation 3 hdmi cord to the tv. i get an invalid format singinal? the hdmi works on my other tv. Why is this?


You may have the wrong version of HDMI. If you have a HDMI V1.3 cord and playstation feature set, it will not work on a lower set. Your TV is most likely a 1.2 or lower version number and as such unfortunately will no accept V1.3.
But I would check the versions in your manuals first before taking this advice as gospel.
Hope this helps, please rate me if it does! :D
