    playing assassins creed for first time about 15mins in no sound and screen blank now system wont read any discs?

    For me this occasionally happens, but.... my audio is constantly tripping and freezing. The characters mouth moves but no sound is coming out. Also this greatly interferes since it hinders the ability to even play the game. So basically im stuck on the very first part (the tutorial) since I cannot get past this part for the audio is constantly stopping, and then being mashed altogether like 4 minutes later. HELP!!!!!

    Okay I need help....I bought Assassin's Creed for PS3 for Christmas and it has not worked at all!!!! I've returned it to the store in which i purchased it from (gamestop) and it still doesnt work. When I say doesn't work I mean the audio is constantly tripping and load times take FOREVER and sometimes are unsuccessful. The main problem is the horrible audio quality. When a character speaks it frequently skips and lags, and mostly, no sound comes out of the characters mouth- about 3 minutes later, all the missing audio spews out in one big mash of sound. This also kinda happens in UNCHARTED Drakes Fortune but not as frequent. Assassins Creed is very severe since I cannot even past the first tutorial portion because of the audio problems : HELP ME, PLUS all my other games work fine on the PS3 - I have not experienced any problems such as this!!!!

Your HDTV only supports 1080i ? If thats the case make sure that under settings youve got only 1080i selected appart from 480p which is standard.

If thats not the case then tell me: Does sound play or just a blank screen and no sound??? (game crashes)

Screen goes black and resets during HD shows

Have you already tried to power cycle all the devices? Unplug the power cable on all your devices for about 1 hour then plug it back in. Check if that fixes it.

Mitsubishi VS-60805 Rear Projection won't operate in HD mode with Cable Box

Since this is an older first generation (1999) HD TV it may not be compatible with newer HDTV receivers because the standards back then were different - Make sure the HD cable box is plugged into the HD component inputs on the back of the TV (not the DVD inputs) and that the menu setting on the TV is set to DTV (not RGB) video. This TV will only accept 480i and 480p signals on the DVD input. Also the HDTV input will only accept 480i,480p and 1080i (it will not work with a 720p signal,make sure your cable box is not set to that mode)

HDMI-can't get tv to stay 1080i

This is natural, the PS3 does not stretch the signal like the Xbox does so games play at there native resolution (720p) there is nothing wrong with your TV or your PS3 and you would not see any difference in the games graphics if it was in 1080i. I'm playing my PS3 on a 46" 1080p TV and my PS3 games look great in 720p.

RCA D52130 52 in. Won't Display High Def

I doubt you'll look at this 2 years later, or even have the T.V.

I have the same TV and was able to view ps3 and xbox 360 games in 1080i, but it's a little tricky. First, let me say that the ps3 is probably not the best system to try using 1080i in unless you have a 360 to help trick the tv into working.

Xbox 360
You need to first set the video to 1080i. This will make the screen display in a bunch of horizontal lines most of the time, but if you keep toggling it on and off, it eventually works. To avoid having to sit and swap between the two modes, it's easier to first set it to 1080i and confirm the setting, then go back into the settings, select 720 (first option above 1080i) and cancel as soon as the video mode changes. 95% of the time this will make it display correctly in 1080i mode. If you turn the tv off and back on, it will sometimes reset to the horizontal lines. If you restart the xbox, it will reset to horizontal lines most of the time. With the ps3, you can set it to 1080i and keep toggling it until it works, but when the game launches it can screw up again, so it's best to have the xbox on and ready with a component switch so you can fix it with the xbox then switch back to the ps3. I think the cable that comes with the tv for HD input (the component plugs don't work, they only support 480, but the vga looking input supports 1080i) - the cable is just poor quality and can barely handle the signal. I've been trying to find a better quality cable with no luck.

Hope this helps other people with this ancient beta HD input canadian tvness.

Screen goes black and resets during HD shows

I just posted this to another Sony owner:

Another point; HD Ready does not mean that it is HD compatible without the addition of an optional part.
The title only implies that it can be adapted to HD reception.
If you did not purchase it with the set, check your user guide to see what you need to make it whole.
You may have to seek this add-on on eBay since it is not guaranteed that Sony will still offer it.

You might want to check this:
