I had the same problem at first. I did the following:

1. Connect both cables: Multi-AV and HDMI.
2. Go to the TV's channel for SCART.
3. You now can see the PS3. Go to Display Settings, under
Settings menu. Select HDMI and the desired resolution.
4. Change to the HDMI channel.
5. You should now also see the PS3's XMB on the HDMI channel.
6. You can now disconnect the Multi-AV.

I hope this information can help you and your customer.
Please rate.

P.S. I figured you were Dutch since you used Neophyte as a name for your previous question. Are you Dutch, and in that case: what videogames store you work at?

Greetings,

Are the old PS3 and the new PS3 sim disk drives interchangeable?


It depends on the model of the system some are only going to work with 40gb version and others work with more than one. Looking online myself I really only see businesses selling individual slim optical lens like here.

have yet to see a full bluray drive for sale but would probably cost a boat load.

My playstation 3 keeps chagning the colours


Hi
i'm guessing you have a HDTV
first try different hdmi cables and see if there is any change
if not The actual component plug-in in the TV can be the main problem
if thats not the problem try to Hook up the HDMI.

Then when you turn on your PS3 hold the power button down for 5 - 10 seconds and you will here a beep.

The console should then go into AV auto detect and find your HDMI connection.

if none of them is working try to contact with your manufacturer

PS3 Blue Ray White lines on left side of TV


I have the same TV, and a Sony BluRay player (not a PS3). I have the same problem.

I found it only does this when playing back 24p disks. My player has an option to disable 24p output to the HDMI, and it "fixes" the problem.

Not really a fix, but a workaround.

Not sure whether it is the TV or player, and sometimes I have fixed it by turning the tv off and on multiple times.

I am going to test the player on another monitor and see if it does the same thing. If so, the player is going back to the store.

Call of Duty - Scrambled screen when using red dot or ACOG sites


do you have any scrambled blocks with any other game?
if not, try cleaning the CoD 4 Disk. wipe from the inside out with a lint-free cloth. do not use a circular motion.

Use the composite connections (Yellow, Red, White) instead of the HDMI.

If that does not work, return the disk to the store.
If you cant, call Activision and tell them that you have a corrupted disk. they should give you instructions on how to send it in.
I had a problem with the disk "dobj for xmodel ‘body-mp-usmc-woodland-assault’ has more than 128 bones (see console for details)". just called them and told me to send them the disk.
2 weeks later, got a ticket to get a new CoD 4 Disk from the store, free.

Besides the obvious size difference of being able to store more information on it, the difference is that the 80gb console is backwards compatibility out of the box with 70% of the ps2 games and with the proper updates the 80gb console can be 98% compatible with ps2 games. The 40gb console isn't compatible with any ps2 games. Hope this helps.
