Question about LG 47LG50 47 in. LCD HDTV

Open Question

LG 42LG50 Using Playstation 3 with display output at 1080p, the screen goes black with error invalid format. I called LG for warranty and they clearly know about this issue. Allthough would not admit it, nor give out more information. The person was very kind and patient. He mentioned the frames per second. The TV would only support 24 hertz or frames per second at 1080p. I have also tried several HDMI cables, including the later versions 1.3b The issue is still not resolved.

pull the plug on your tv and cable box for 1 minute and start fresh. glitches like this happen all the time with hdmi. if this does not cure, the error message you get needs to be posted.

SOURCE: Invalid format

Try rechecking all wire connections for proper placement and fit too and from the tv.
Try adjusting the video format on the DVD, flip through 480p and 1080i. See which format works best with your tv. Do the same with Wii.

See if this helps.

You need to lower your PC video resolution to the native resolution of this TV. It is too high for the TV to display.

The PS3 video resolution setting is too high for the TV to work, please see your PS3 user manual on how to lower the resolution to the native resolution of this TV.

Well everytime we hook up the HDMI for the playstation 3 to the tv it says invalid format how do i fix this


You must make sure your playstation and your TV set are both set for the same video format (1080p, 1080i, 720p, etc.).

You can either go through all your HDTV formats until it synchs up (give each a good 20 seconds or so before moving on), or you can open the display menu for your PS/3 using a different video connection to your set (i.e. composite), setting both to match, then switching them to HDMI.

"Invalid format" how do I change from 1080p to 1080i or 720i?


I had a second playstation hooked to another tv in my home and took a controller from the non-LG-TV-displaying ps3 and one from a working ps3 on a seperate TV. And used the working ps3 to guide me to the settings menu on the ps3 that was not displaying video. Anyways, if you cannot see the tv screen because it is set on 1080p and your LG will not display it (Only displays up to 1080i). Start The PS3 and press the D-pad buttons in this order.

Left 10+ times. (This Takes you to the far left icon in the XMB)
Right Once. (This is the settings icon)
Down 20+ times. (To reach the bottom of the settings)
Then Up 4 times (This is Display Settings)
Press "X" Once. (This enters Display Settings)
Press Up 5 times (This Makes Sure you are at the top of the sub-menu at Video Output Settings)
Press "X" Once (This Enters Video Output Settings)

Before pressing any more buttons, Know what cables you have pluged into your TV.
For HDMI Just Press "X" and it will auto adjust to for the new TV.
For Component / D-Terminal Output Press Down Once Then "X", and X Again (This changed my ps3 from the 1080p-Invalid Format back to 1080i and fixed my problem.
For Composite Video Output Press Down Twice, Then "X" and X again.

For AV MULTI / SCART Output Press Down Three Times, Then "X"and X again.

Most PS3 games do not support 1080p, so if u have a 1080p supporting game, only then can u do it.
