Tv says invalid format when PS3 w/hdmi is hooked up

Olevia 226-S12 hdtv says invalid format when you hook a PS3 using hdmi, I also tried the old school a/v cable and the tv did not even register is was there? Is this a firmware issue for the tv, or PS3, or does the PS3 have to be set to its lowest resolution setting? I ask this because the Ps3 was hooked to a 37'' 1080p LG. However, I thought that when you plugged the a/v cable into the ps3 it didnt matter because you are only going to get low res with that anyway? Just trying to hook the ps3 up to my child's tv and running into these issues, please help?

Make sure the xbox display settings are not defulted to 480. Have you tried using the component hookup instead? Theres really not that big a difference in quality between the two if your settings are correct in the xbox display menu.

Hooking up my ps3 using HDMI cord to my olevia 232-S13 and it says invalid format


Setting up your HDMI cable on your PS3 games console

1: Turn on your TV and set its input to HDMI.

2: Make sure your PS3 is connected via a HDMI cable.

3: Power on your PS3 and press and hold the power button for approx. 5 seconds, you will hear the PS3 start to beep, release the power button after the second beep.

4: Your PS3 should automatically configure itself for HDMI video and Audio output.

Receive an invalid format message from my Olevia 32 tv


You get invalid format, or format not support becuase the video resolution setting on your PC is too high for the monitor to display, you need to lower your PC video resolution to the native resolution of the TV to get the best picture. Look at the owner manual for your TV or search the web.
