I am getting a blue screen whenever i turn on my ps3. Ive tried resetting the system several times and can not find the solution. Audio works just a blue screen on the t.v.


Hi,
You said the sound works but you get a blue screen on the TV, check your TV if it is set properly.
Make sure the Input is correct on the TV to shoe the Video coming from the console and check if the cable connections are properly connected to the TV and the console video output and input.
Also try it on a different TV to see if the issues is with the TV or the Console itself if on a different TV and the issue is still the same the issue is the Video output from the console but to check further more try a different cable, borrow one or maybe buy a new one just to see and eliminate possible causes of the Blue screen issue.
I hope this helps.

Trying to use ps3, even after using hdmi cable on input 6 or 7, it says check your device output and i see green lines on my screen?


hi
There maybe some problem with your TVs resolution. ps3 outputs full hd high resolution video(1080p) through its HDMI. May be your TV is not supporting that resolution. Connect ps3's component video out to your TV's component video input and then try. if it ask for any resolution selection. select 720p or 1080i, above that resolution your TV will not support. Your tv is hd ready one, not full hd. ps3 's HDMI out is full hd (1080p).
or try this
Connect your ps3 to any full hd tv and then goto video setup of ps3. change resolution to 1080i (down scaling ). then connect to your TV via HDMI. surly u will get the video.
ok

Hooking up ps3


To get 1080i (the 50V will not do 1080P) from the Blu ray player you do have to use HDMI output on the PS3 to the DVI input.

I found one at Walmart. Phillips makes an HDMI to DVI plug also at Wmart.

The PS3 must be set for the output you want on your TV.

Look in your manual in the PS3 box or go to http://manuals.playstation.net/document/en/ps3/current/settings/videooutput.html

The web site has much more detailed instructions, but the basic answer to your question is below.

  • The cable required to output a particular video mode may not be included with the product and additional purchases may be necessary. For details, refer to the documentation supplied with your system.
  • If the video output settings do not match those required for the TV in use, the screen may go blank when the resolution is changed. The screen should, however, automatically go back to its original resolution after a while. If the screen remains blank for more than 30 seconds, turn off the system. Then touch the power button on the system front for at least five seconds to turn the system on again. The video output settings will automatically be reset to the standard resolution.
  • If a device that is not compatible with the HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection) standard is connected to the system using an HDMI cable, video and/or audio cannot be output from the system.
  • Copyright-protected Blu-ray video discs can only output at 1080p using an HDMI cable connected to a device that is compatible with the HDCP standard.

  • Hope that helps!

    Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to you and your family.

    Cant get hdmi for ps3 to work on my jvc hd 52g887


    Had same problem with Panasonic PT60LC14 tv when connecting by HDMI cord to my PS3 and a blue ray disc was playing. First, read your tv manual to see what video inputs it supports . Then read the PS3 online manual (section on "video output settings").

    For me I found out that my tv only supported 1080i (along with 480i/p, 780p) and the ps3 manual says blue ray outputs 1080p, so my blue ray discs will not play on my tv according to the PS3 manual. PS3 manual says to restart the ps3 (power off, then power on and HOLD for 5 seconds) - then the standard video output settings should be reset. Hopefully the ps3 menu will pop up at least. I haven't tried this yet but if it doesn't work, i'll may try to reset PS3 video out settings manually first using another tv that works with it ..

    Problem connecting HDMI cable


    Hey there I don't see why your playstation 3 should be doing that other than the console being defective. Sony doesn't have this problem that often and actually this is the first time i have heard of such problem. Try making sure the the HDMI cable is connected at both ends all the way in and also make sure your Samsung is a 1080P which i am pretty sure it is and finally if you have a friend or another 1080P HDTV in your house i would try and see if your ps3 will support the 1080P feature. If you still have the problem even when you use a different TV then its the ps3 that is malfunctioning otherwise it would be your Samsung. Let me know how that turns out alright.

    Toshiba 32AV500U HDMI issues


    The Toshiba 32AV500U cannot display 1080p. Hook up your PS3 to your computer monitor, provided that it can display 1080p, or some other TV that can, then change your Video Output settings under Settings> Display Settings and uncheck 1080p, which will allow the PS3 to display in 1080i. Once you do that, then hook up the Toshiba via HDMI and it will work with no problem.
