Re: ghosting on images when in 720 1020

Is it possible that your tv supports hd but not 720 or 1080
i have a tv with hd inputs that only supports a 480i (interlaced) signal where some tv's can support up to 1080p (progressive) signal

MY PS3 is hooked up via HDMI and has always worked fine. All of a sudden i went to turn it on and there was nothing but black, it detected a signal, but it was just black.

Hi there, Have you switched cables or changed any of the video output settings on the ps3 or your telly? Just double check all the settings and that the cables are connected properly and are not damaged. If you have another cable try that to see if you still have a black screen or try on another telly with the same cable to see if it's the cable that the problem is? If you using a standard cable to try on another tv, you will have to reset the video output so it will work, to do this simply hold down the power button on the front of the ps3 until it powers off again and this will allow it work on a standard tv with standard cable, and to switch back to hdmi just connect with hdmi. Cable to HDTV and the ps3 will detect the cable and ask if you want to use these settings. Hope this helps

PS3 problems At home I have a new samsung hd 1080p TV that I normally use for my PS3. I will be in a hotel outa town for the next couple of days and I wanna watch a movie using my PS3. In my...

I had the same problem, stuck in a hotel room for 2 days. When I held down the button, next time I turned it on, I got the same prompt with using HDMI output, said yes, and screen went black. However, a screen then came up asking if I could see the image or not, but it has a 30 second time limit before it saves those setting, you have to click "No" on this screen, and it will drop the resolution to 780p instead of 1080 and it should work! Make sure you're paying attention so you don't miss the screen!

PS3 surround sound

You will need the optical cable. My receiver only passes video through the hdmi. So I hooked up the HDMI cable to the tv, and the optical cable to the receiver. Once that is done you have to go to the audio settings for the PS3 and chose audio through the optical.

Cant change my display settings from the 480i input

Whay kind of cable are you hooking it to your TV with...?

The one that comes with the ps3 is only capable of NTSC, or 480. If that is the cable you are trying to use, you will have to get an HDMI cable, or the component cable (the one with 5 rca's plugs, 3 vid 2 audio), as these cables are capable of the full 720 and 1080 resolutions.

What do i need to got sound out of my hdtv?im using a hdmi to dvi cable.

if you have no optional external speaker on the ps3 you may have an earphone socket which can be connected to your tv's pc sound input via a 3.5mm or 6.5mm jack plugs.
