Question about Emerson LC320EM9 32 in. LCD HDTV

''Please change your computer screen's resolution''

I plug an HDMI cable from television to Playstation 3 and when I turn on ps3, it tells me to ''Please change your computer screen's resolution.'' I have no computer screen plugged in. I have a ps3 plugged in. Also When I plug a DVD player to the tv via AV slots, the tv assumes nothing is plugged in. I cannot adjust resolution for either one, it tells me that it is nonadjustable.

How do i get my hdmi to work for my ps3 system


Note: How to reset video output settings
If you are attempting to change to an HDMI cable from a different video cable or if the video output settings do not match those required for the display in use, the screen may stay black. If the screen stays black for more than 30 seconds, you may need to reset the video output settings of the PS3.

To reset video output settings:

  1. Turn the PS3 system off by holding the Power button on the front of the console till you see the power light turn red.
  2. Then hold the power button on the front of the console for at least five seconds until you hear a second beep to turn the system on again. The video output settings will automatically be reset to the standard resolution.

[TOP]

Minimum Requirements

  • PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system
  • SIXAXISTM wireless controller (and USB cable)
  • AC power cord
  • HDMI cable1 (sold separately)
  • TV or display monitor with HDMI port and capable of displaying picture in HD resolution
  • Updated system software installed on your PS3
    Visit PS3 System Software Update to download and install the most recent version.
  • TV "Input" or "Video" channel for the HDMI port
    You need to know the TV "Input" or "Video" channel for the HDMI port on your TV. For instance, if your TV has multiple "Input" or "Video" channels, (i.e., "Input 1", "Input 2", "Input 3", etc.), you will need to toggle through each "Input" channel on your TV until you find the correct channel that displays the HDMI picture. This is important to remember, especially if you do not see the HDMI picture after you connect the cable and configure the PS3 settings. Please refer to the TV instruction manual for more information.

How do i connect a playstation 3 to a philips tv


The PlayStation 3 (PS3) is a high-definition gaming console that supports both standard AV connections and high-resolution connections (such as HDMI). Most of the older Philips TVs come with a standard AV input. Newer, flat-panel Philips TVs include standard AV inputs and high-resolution inputs. To get the best video quality out of your PS3, using an HDMI connection is recommended if the option is available. The PS3 does not include an HDMI cable, only a standard AV cable

Standard AV
  • 1 Turn off the PS3.
  • 2 Connect the flat end of the PS3 AV cable into the "AV Multi Out" port on the back of the PS3.
  • 3 Connect the "red," "white" and "yellow" prongs on the opposite end of the PS3 AV cable into the corresponding "red," "white" and "yellow" AV inputs on the TV (usually located on the side or in the back).
  • 4 Press the "Source" button on the Philips TV remote.
  • 5 Select the "AV" video display mode.
  • 6 Turn on the PS3. The PS3 logo will appear on the screen.
  • HDMI Connection

    How do you set up a ps3?


    Hello,

    I would suggest you follow these procedures, hook up your PlayStation 3 to a television. You must decide whether your TV supports high definitions (HD) resolution or not. For HD resolution, you must use a HDMI cable or a component video cable. These cables also support standard definition (SD) resolution. If you only have an SD television, you can use an S-video cable or an AV cable. These two can't support HD resolution.

    Connect the PlayStation 3 to any audio equipment such as a A/V receiver or home entertainment system. Connect using a digital audio cable or, alternatively, run an HDMI cable to your A/V receiver then another HDMI cable to the television set.

    Plug in the Ethernet cable, then connect the other end to a 10Base T jack from your home network. This connects you to the Internet and the world of online gaming.

    Attach the AC power cord to the PlayStation 3, and then plug it into a surge protected wall outlet. Don't plug in the power cord until all other connections have been made as a chance of shock exists.

    Perform the initial set up of the system. Turn on the power of the TV and game console, and follow the on-screen prompts. The pre-installed software guides you through the set up process.
    Take care.

    I am trying to hook up my HDMI cables on my Playstation. I follow the instructions outlined in the manual and in the actual Playstation ( I have been attempting this manually while using A/V cables)....


    Ok, please connect your PS3 up using the HDMI cable, don't worry about having no display yet.

    Turn the PS3 off into standby (red light on)

    Press and hold the power button. It will beep when you first press it, then beep again 5 seconds later. Let go of the power button when you hear this second beep.

    Wait for the PS3 display settings to be reset back to standard definition. The PS3 should now properly detect your HDMI connection and ask you if you want to switch to the maximum resolution possible from your TV.

    Hope this helps

    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.

    HDMI green screen


    1-HDMI is available in several versions. The PLAYSTATION 3 is compatible with HDMI version 1.3 or higher, which will take full advantage of Blu-ray Disc™ high-definition video. There are also "Type A" and "Type B" connectors. The PLAYSTATION 3 uses the 19-pin Type A connector, which will allow resolutions up to 1080p.
    The HDMI cable is not included with the PLAYSTATION 3. If you are using an HDMI to DVI converter, you may wish to remove this adaptor.

    2- The resolution output (i.e., picture quality) of the PLAYSTATION 3 will depend on three factors:
    The type of cable used and the inputs available on the TV or display monitor.
    The maximum resolution the TV or display monitor can support. The PLAYSTATION 3 can output two types of resolution: HD and SD. Refer to the TV or display monitor's owner's manual to check which video modes are supported.
    The maximum resolution programmed into the source material (movie or game). Refer to the software packaging for information on maximum resolution details or contact the publisher directly.


    3- Try connecting with the supplied AV Cable instead of the HDMI to see if you can get a successful installation. This will help determine where the problem may be with your particular HMDI setup and/or equipment.

    4- Disconnect any coaxial cables at the point closest to the television. Signals sent through coaxial cables may cause interference with the sound and picture outputted from the PLAYSTATION 3 which results in buzzing and humming noises from your display and speakers.

    PS3 with no video / no audio


    Try this:
    Make sure the system is off. Now hold down Power Button for 8-10 seconds, until you hear the beep.
    If you hear the beep, that means your video settings are reset and now you should be able to choose your input and configure it.

    PS3 no longer communicating with TV


    All: Try this -

    P
    erform the following steps to reset the Video Output Settings.
    1. Make sure the HDMI cable is connected to the [HDMI OUT] port on the back of the PLAYSTATION 3 system. Connect the other end of the HDMI cable into the [HDMI Input] port of the TV or display monitor.
    2. While the PLAYSTATION 3 system is in standby mode (red light on the front of the system), hold down the touch-sensitive On/Off button on the front of the system until the system goes into standby mode again . (So the light cycle would go from: red light to --> green light --> then back to red light) This will ensure that you have held down the On/Off button long enough to reset the Video Output Settings.
    3. Turn ON the PLAYSTATION 3 and once the system finishes powering up, the Video Output Settings will automatically reset to the standard resolution (or detect the current display output settings of your TV/monitor). [If resetting does not auto-detect your HDTV, see next step below.]
    NOTE: As of system software update version 1.60, the PLAYSTATION 3can automatically detect an HDMI connection to a TV. If the PLAYSTATION 3 is turned on with an HDMI cable connected, the screen for switching video output settings will be displayed automatically. (Does not function unless the TV that is connected by the HDMI cable is turned on.)

    As of version 1.80 of the system update for the PLAYSTATION 3, the PLAYSTATION 3 can upscale the video content of PlayStation® format software, PlayStation®2 format software, and DVDs to HD resolution.

    If Resetting the Video Output Setting Did NOT Detect Your HDTV Automatically (Certain TV's Only)
    With certain televisions, the PLAYSTATION 3 may not automatically detect the HDMI source (TV) which it is plugged into, even after resetting the Video Output Setting (as described above).

    If resetting the Video Output Setting did not work, you may need to follow these steps to manually locate the HDMI source:

    1. Connect both the AV Cable and the HDMI cable from the PLAYSTATION 3 to the corresponding (AV and HDMI) ports on your TV. 2. Proceed with resetting the Video Output Setting on the PLAYSTATION 3 again. (Follow these steps, then continue to step 3 below.)
    3. Turn the TV channel to the corresponding "Input" or "Video" channel for the AV Cable connection.
    4. Manually change the Video Output Settings to HDMI. (Follow these steps, then continue to step 5 below.)
    5. Now switch the "Input" or "Video" channel on the TV for the HDMI port the PLAYSTATION 3 is currently plugged into.
    6. Accept the display settings for HDMI before the timer runs out (30 seconds). Highlight "Yes" and press the X button.
    7. You can now disconnect AV Cable from the PLAYSTATION 3 and the TV, as it is no longer needed.
