Have you updated your firmware, earlier firmware had issues with HDMI cables and pic resolution. Make sure you have the latest firmware, I think its version 2.01 now. Also what kind of HDMI cable are you using, quality cable or some $10 jobby from Joe's Hardware Store. Check the cable with another device to eliminate that as a problem.

My playstation 3 will not play in 1080p. It used to work, but when we switched cables, it wont work in HD.


When you switched cables, you mean you changed the cord running from the PS3 to the TV? HD content requires an HDMI connection from the PS3 to the TV. It is possible that when you changed cables, you replaced the PS3's HDMI cable with Component Cables which can only deliver in Standard Definition and not in High Definition (720p, 1080i and 1080p).

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.

I am trying to commect to my PS3 to an LG LCD tv which supports 1080P (Full HD). but as the game starts and when i check the TV it says 720P although the game and the TV both supports full HD. Do i need...


Hello there. There's a few possibilities. First, the obvious, do you have it set to 1080P in the Display Settings options? Secondly, are you using an HDMI cable? You need to be using HDMI to play games in full 1080P. I use the component cables (The red, green and blue ones) for my PS3 and when I'm on the XMB (that's the PS's desktop so to speak) it's displayed in 1080P but games will not play in 1080P, only 720P. Any old HDMI cable will do the trick, so don't get suckered by the price if you are going to pick up a cable!

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.

While playing MGS4, or watching DVDs in my PS3, the lower half of my LCD TV is a shade greyer than the upper half. I am running 1080p through an hdmi to my vizio 32" lcd tv that is full 1080p compatible.


Hi:

1) have you tried using another hdmi cable?
2) are you sure that both ends of the hdmi cable are firmly fitted, such that there is no strain on the cable?
3) have you set the resolution to 'only 1080p'? i.e. make sure 720p and 1080i are unticked, in the Display Settings section, under System Settings in the XMB

Hope this helps,

Please leave feedback if everything is working.

Games run on hdmi, but not Blu-ray movies


You most likely have the updated drivers. You may have to go and change a setting. I found an answer on the PS3 website that may be of some use to you. I hope this helps you: http://boardsus.playstation.com/playstation/board/message?board.id=ps3&message.id=1662191 From the site: "go to bd/dvd setting and set the "108024hz" option off"
