The ps3 should do that, see if you can get one of the gaming repair guys what your situation is and im sure they will help you out with the price of nothing

Just played a blu ray film, and it looks a little washed out, how can i improve it. I am playing it via HDMI lead to the TV, but the tv isn't hd ready.


Try using the regular A/V cable, its not going to be in HD quality but it might clear the washed out view, and you might get a better picture even tho not in high definition

80GB PS3 displays Snow/White screen during playback


Did you ever figure out how to fix this. We simply took our system and hooked it up to a different tv and it stopped. I personally think the problem is with the HDMI cable and wether the cable and the socket are connecting.

When the display is via HDMI Games won't load?


is your screen a full hd one ?
if not, verify your resolution settings in the ps3 system settings ; you may experience problems if you allow you system to run in a resolution not supported by your TV .

PS3 wont go 1080i/720p


I don't think there is a way to set your resolution manually, bro. They do it all by auto. If I may make a suggestion... Turn off both the TV & PS3. Unplug your HDMI, then make sure both your TV & PS3 are turned ON. Now re-connect your HDMI. A TV tech once told me that these units "communicate" through the HDMI. This can only occure whilst they're up & running. This may help get you going on to 1080i.
p.s. PS3 games only output 720p, max! This isn't always the case for Blu Ray movies, but it is for games. Good luck!

Games on Full HD


if you have a full hdtv then providing you set the playstation up in the settings menu to 1080p and use a hdmi cable then everything you play will be in hd (except ps1 and 2 games) but you can select to upscale these. all blu rays and ps3 games will be in full hd.

Sony ps3 an samsung tv


Well your PS3 Can't connect with your TV to the Samsung, because PS3 Was made HD Blu-Ray. If your TV/Samsung is not supported by High Def. or Blu-Ray, it will not work, you will need a different HDMI Cable, and it should work fine.
Hope this Helped.

Full HD picture NO SOUND from ps3 to lg42hd using HDMI


Maybe your TV is not made for HD from the Sony Console. Try calling Sony Customer support, then your TV's brand Customer support. That will tell you if your TV Model allows the HD from the PS3. Remember though, PS3 Uses Blu-Ray. So you need Blu-Ray for your TV. Hope this helped.

Blu Ray! Help!


it sounds more to me like you have the video settings for your tv wrong, and the blu-ray is trying to play in a resolution that your tv doesnt support. Go into your HDMI settings again, and go through each of the "checked" resolutions, test each one by one selecting each and then pressing i believe x to test. If a picture is displayed right away, the resolution is supported, if the screen goes black...wait 30 sec or press circle and it will return you back to the settings screen. Unchack any that diddnt give you a picture right away when you tested..then save and try....

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"
