SOURCE: PS3 dont work

Go through setup on your PS3 with a normal AV cable and un-check the higher resolution boxes (1080p and down) one at a time, unless you know specifically what resolutions your television supports. After un-checking, plug in the HDMI cable and see if it fixes it. Basically, you need to set the PS3 to a supported format for your television.

SOURCE: well everytime we hook up

hi,
the playstation 3 outputs full HD VIDEO (1080p) , if your tv is not a full HD one then you cant see the video. Do one thing connect the PlayStation 3 to any full hd tv and go to it video setting. Down scale the video to 1080i. All HD ready tvs supports only resolution up to 1080i. only full HD tvs supports 1080p. Down scale the video to 1080i surely you will get video.
ok

Well everytime we hook up the HDMI for the playstation 3 to the tv it says invalid format how do i fix this


You must make sure your playstation and your TV set are both set for the same video format (1080p, 1080i, 720p, etc.).

You can either go through all your HDTV formats until it synchs up (give each a good 20 seconds or so before moving on), or you can open the display menu for your PS/3 using a different video connection to your set (i.e. composite), setting both to match, then switching them to HDMI.

Does the Playstation 3 support 3D DVD"S. I just bought a Sony 3D capable tv and hooked everything up and the PS-3 says it doesn" support 3D format.


With the new 3.50 update that Sony released it unlocked the ability for the PS3 to play 3D blu rays. Are you sure you have updated to 3.50 as you will need to do this before playing any 3D blu rays. I am sure if you update to this version you will find everything will be fine.

Hope this helps

When i connect my ps3 to the tv it says format not supported


Hi. Hook up your PS3 to you TV with the HDMI cable. Now, when you turn on your PS3, hold the power button on the PS3 for 5 seconds. It will reset the PS3 video options and recognize the HDMI connection. It will then search for the correct resolution settings on the TV. Press (X) to confirm. And that's it. You should be set. If not, then the TV is acting rather strange.

Ok so basically i'm at a friend's house and we try to hook up the playstation 3 to his hd tv and it just says invalid format


Make sure that the TV is set to the proper " Channel "

With some HD TVs, you have to switch between different types of input depending on what you want to access.

What format is your tv? SD, PAL NTSC HD 720 1080i 1080p, 50Hz?? Check the back of the game box to see what formats are supported.

change the display settings to 1080i or 720p- his tv likely does not support 1080p.

Playstation 3 hook up


If there is no picture on the TV screen: Back to top
  • Check that the input mode of the TV is appropriate for the connector in use on the PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system.
  • There may be a problem with the cable in use. Try using another cable that is compatible with the PLAYSTATION®3.
  • If the video output settings on the PLAYSTATION®3 do not match those of the cable or TV in use, there may be no picture. If the screen goes blank, turn off the system.
  • Then, with only the PLAYSTATION®3 and the TV connected, touch the system's power button for more than 5 seconds to turn the system back on. The video output settings will automatically be reset to the standard resolution.
If that does not help try contacting sony at
