Dynex HDTV says not supported when PS3 is connected via HDMI

Have you tried changing the video output settings on the PS3? It may just be on a setting that the TV does not support. For instance, if the poutput setting is 1080P, and the TV only supports up to 1080i, you would get a "not supported" signal. Hook the ps3 to a tv that it works on...turn it on, go to settings- display settings-output settings- select HDMI as the connector type- if it asks for 3D tv the size- now you need to set the all resolutions that the TV supports, since it is a is likely a 720p TV. So I would start by selecting only 720p, and then hook the system to the Dynex TV and see if it works now. If it works, you can go back in and attempt to select 1080i or 1080p to see if they work... but again, being a Dynex, it is probably only a 720p TV... The PS3 is likely trying to output a 1080i or 1080p signal...which that TV doesn't support.

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.

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.

I have a ps3 that i tried to hook up to our emmerson tv through an hdmi cable and the tv screen says format not supportedf why?

If you recently moved the PS3 from one tv to another, it's setup to work on that other tv.
Press and hold the power button on the PS3 until you hear a beep. This should default the video output to whatever is plugged in and the PS3 should output normally via the HDMI connection.

Cannot output 1080p with a full hd 1080p hdtv

In the settings menu, go to video settings. You can have the PS3 search for "optimal settings" This will tackle both video & audio.
On a side note, you didn't need to spend all that money a HDMI cable. ( I'll bet it's a 'Monster' cable, right? ) The $16 Phillips at walmart is just as good. Unless your doing "broadcast quality digital" work, the expensive cables are overkill. Sorry, bro.

PS3 does not work in 1080p

My ps3 didn't like a HDMI connection very much. I tried the Composite input cables and they worked great with no screen flicker.

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.

Playstation 3 Flickers when set to 1080P

It sucks to see ALLLLLLL these solutions, when I have the solution. Turn off DEEP COLOR in the video settings. It will immediately stop. If it doesn't, then you don't have the typical snow/flickering problem.

No video - blue screen...

since you bought this console used, it maybe set to HDMI 1080p/ 1080i/720p output(by the original owner) and if your TV does not support this there will be no picture, the only way to lower the output resoloution is to get into the options menu but to do that you will need a freind with a tv that supports whatever resoloution its been set too.
