Dynex HDTV says not supported when PS3 is connected via HDMI


Have you tried changing the video output settings on the PS3? It may just be on a setting that the TV does not support. For instance, if the poutput setting is 1080P, and the TV only supports up to 1080i, you would get a "not supported" signal. Hook the ps3 to a tv that it works on...turn it on, go to settings- display settings-output settings- select HDMI as the connector type- if it asks for 3D tv size...select the size- now you need to set the resolution...select all resolutions that the TV supports, since it is a dynex...it is likely a 720p TV. So I would start by selecting only 720p, and then hook the system to the Dynex TV and see if it works now. If it works, you can go back in and attempt to select 1080i or 1080p to see if they work... but again, being a Dynex, it is probably only a 720p TV... The PS3 is likely trying to output a 1080i or 1080p signal...which that TV doesn't support.

I am trying to hook up my PS3 into my room (Emerson 22 inch flatscreen with HDMI) I am plugging it in with the HDMI cable when it says "Resolution mismatch!" Is that because it was previously on...


This is because your Emerson does not support full HD (unlike your 52").
To fix this:
i) Make sure your PS3 is off (showing red light) ii) Hold down the power button for 5-6 seconds until you've heard two beeps
You should now be able to reset your video options - make sure 1080P is not checked and you should be able to use your PS3 fine with your Emerson.
When you reconnect to your bigger TV, do the same trick with the power button again and turn 1080P back on.

So i was messing with the display resolution, it was working fine before i started messing with it... i changed the resolution from 1080i with component cables... to 1080p. I lost the picture unti i...


1080i only works with component cables and wont go to 1080p but your hdmi will set it back to 1080i and then switch back to the component cables.

I'm only after buying a hdmi cable an wen i hold my finger on the on button till it beeps twice it wont give me the option of hdmi???


this option of holding it down til it beeps just restores it to a default video setting not to HDMI

If you go into settings

display settings

video output settings (first on list under display settings)
it tells you what it is set at currently already)

click on it

choice your connection generally 1080i is the component second option and true HDMI 1080p is the first option says HDMI

Once you chose it you will have to accept the changes it will then change the settings choose yes to save them. And your done or you can set up your audio settings right afterwards and then finish.

On my 60gb for some reason i have not figured out yet i have to reset this alot not sure why very annoying, but again it only take 30sec to do

  2. Disconnect the VGA HD cable from the display, and then remove the console power cord from the power outlet.
  3. Wait five seconds.

PS3 WON'T PLAY BLU-RAY DISCS


The problem is all in the settings. You probably have a 1080i television that cannot display in 1080p. To fix this go to the main menu and go to:

Settings:

Video Settings

Then Blu Ray Disc and make it turn the Display BD in 1080p 24hz or whatever. Once you do that, start the Blu Ray Disc again, and you should be able to watch it. This all happened because your tv doesn't display 1080p.

Hope this helps!
