Don't worry, since last generation plasmas almost solved problem with luminophore burning out and some models are equipped with kinda screensaver if picture stays still for a certain period of time. If you will not keep one picture hanging on screen for DAYS, nothing will happen.

Yes, you can play PS3 on your plasma TV without worrying about "burn in" problem. Just don't pause your game for a few hours.

I hope this helped.

Is it ok for me to connect my ps3 to a plasma television to play video games


If your plasma is newer then about 3 or 4 years ago, AND! it's had a proper break in, then no... no worries at all... You might get a little image retention, but it'll go away after a couple hours... If it's a new plasma, make SURE you have given it a proper break-in (about 200 hours of non-static images)... FWIW... I have a panasonic TH-42PHD6UY that I use for all my gaming (except PS3 cause my LCoS set is 1080p and plasma isn't), and have used it ONLY for gaming for about the last 2 or 2 1/2 years... I've NEVER had a problem with burn-in....

I have a panasonic plasma th46pz80u. Last week


On Panasonic 32LX TVs this is a known fault, repairable by a firmware upgrade. John Lewis in the UK sent out an engineer under their free 5 yr TV guarantee and completed the firmware upgrade for me. The only other store to compare with them for price and service is Richer Sounds but I believe you now have to buy the warranty for 10% of the purchase price. This problem will persist unless the upgrade is completed. For those of you in the UK, I would insist the seller repairs the problem under the Sale of Goods and Services Act as the TV is not fit for purpose without the upgrade.

Just bought a 50 panasonic viera, when we hook up ps3 on hdmi cable, we have sound but no picture.


Plasma TV normally do not have the resolution required for PS3 unless the plasma TV is fullHD( 1920x1080p) pixels.

HD Ready Plasma = 1024 x 768p
PS3 Outputs = (fullHD)1920x1080 or (HDReady) 1280 x 720p.

LCD TV accepts the resolution matches the resolution the PS3 is outputting.

Ps3 hookup to panasonic plasma viera


Actually if you do have a ps2 you don`t really need a Dvd upconverter because Ps3 is a full Dvd player +blu Ray Hi Definition.I suggest to take the dvd out and just use the ps3 as a Dvd player
Good Luck

Game console and plasma displays


You did not list which console you have and what type of cables it has.

Looks like your plasma has:
1 component
1 composite
1 VGA
1 S-Video

If this is an xbox360 or PS3 then you will want to use the component connection, but this one is already used by the cable tuner. Don't worry there is a solution. The xbox360 and ps3 output a higher resolution that your plasma can handle, so use the component with those systems.

If it is an older console, predating the xbox360, then use the composite or S-video connections.

Since you are short on video inputs, you might need a video switch. A switch with both component and S-video connections for future add-ons.

You can find them all over the web, or your local video store like walmart and best buy. Here is a switch i found on ebay that should work:

here is the ebay search i used:

Make sure you buy extra cables, most of these boxes do not come with cables, so buy what you need.

I prefer video switches that don't require a power outlet, but it's your choice. Some of the powered switches, have remotes for the lazy people, but I don't need anymore remotes on my table, keep that in mind.

Use of PS3 on Plasma TV's


I was worried about burn in when I got my 42 inch plasma a year ago. I read reviews and suggestions saying that you should not play games on it for the first couple months of use on the plasma TV's. I actaully stayed away from games for about a month on it and I have been fine and have never had any issues. I have a cheaper model as well so I would guess the expensive ones would be even better then that for burn in.
