My playstation volume wont work.what should i do?


Try changing the PS3 Sound output settings, check the cables leading to the console and TV, and if that doesn't solve it, watch another movie, then come back to the original. If it is one movie in particular, you may want to contact Netflix online at netflix.com/youraccount. Here, you can click the "Report problem" next to movies you've watched recently to tell Netflix about the issue.

Can playstation act as dvd player or i should buy dvd player separately?


Yes, it can play DVD movies as well as Music CD'S and CD-R's music. You dont have to buy another machine. One tip thou when using it as a DVD plyr you might put it where ventilation can get to it - due to the overheating problem PS2 has. I use mine all the time, and I put a fan next to it, so I can play longer and watch movies longer. I hope this helps. Good Luck.

Screen went black while watching a movie, stays black


Looks like you need a new cable from the PS3 to the Tv. get a new one but before that is always better to confirm if you have another tv source connect your PS3 and check it out if the cable is the black sheep out here. you can throw it out and buy new one.

Good Luck

When my ps3 is on 720p or 1080i there is this white fuzzy line that oulines certain images on the tv such a faces and clouds and such.. but when its on 480p its fine.. i bought a new HDMI cable thinking it...


This happens when using hdmi for me, free to air digital tv is fine, but playing games has the exact same problems as you describe, and even dvd's etc do it, but not very noticeable at all, needs to be slow paced with a high contrast in in the picture usually.

I have a playstation 1 game that i play on my 3,


Yes, GameStop and EB games both sell an adaptor you can buy, I believe it's around $20 that allows you to save and copy your data from the PS3. I have Gran Turismo 3 and I had just about everything in it on my PS2; I thought I had to start all over when I got my PS3 but I got one of these adapters and it worked wonders. Same applies for PS1 games.

Good luck and if I've helped you please give me a good rating.

Respectfully,

Don

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!

Multizoning my playstation 3


Yes, but is easy if you have a A/V Receiver like a Marantz or Yamaha and put in the "MultiZone" Out, in Marantz you can see in your room example a Cable, and in MultiZone a PS3 DVD, 2 outs with 1 source (Receiver).

Ps3 hook up


Yes, you can! But not straight out of the box. You need to purchase a DVI to HDMI cable adapter. It will convert it so your tv can use it. Here is a link to some:
