I need to know how please, to reformat a Westinghouse television. The model number is SK-26H7353.


Invalid format is a message that means the screen resolution cannot display the information with the current setting. We need to know the make and model of the television and the input method that your are using.

The TV can't read the format that the data is in, it is a kind of code, your tv can decipher it.

The PS3 video resolution setting is too high for the TV to work, please see your PS3 user manual on how to lower the resolution to the native resolution of this TV.

When i plug up my playstation 3 hdmi cord to the tv. i get an invalid format singinal? the hdmi works on my other tv. Why is this?


You may have the wrong version of HDMI. If you have a HDMI V1.3 cord and playstation feature set, it will not work on a lower set. Your TV is most likely a 1.2 or lower version number and as such unfortunately will no accept V1.3.
But I would check the versions in your manuals first before taking this advice as gospel.
Hope this helps, please rate me if it does! :D

Invalid format


Try rechecking all wire connections for proper placement and fit too and from the tv.
Try adjusting the video format on the DVD, flip through 480p and 1080i. See which format works best with your tv. Do the same with Wii.

See if this helps.

I'm getting an invalid format on my hdmi inputs when i hook up my ps3. It's wierd because it works on my viszo, but not on my new westinghouse or my samsung.


If you accidentally set your PS 3 for 1080p resolution, when the TV can only support 720p, you get a black screen. The Westinghouse TV I used displayed a message that said "invalid format." To reset the PS 3 to the standard AV format, you shut the PS 3 off. Then you hold the PS 3’s power button down for about 10 seconds. It will reset to standard video
