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 have a Full HD LCD LG tv, it is printed on the tv itself that it supports 1080p, but when I plug my PS3 and change the settings to 1080p, the screen goes black for about 5 sec, and comes back for 2 sec,...


Rather than actually trying to set the display resolution up from within the XMB (which does cause come problems) try my guide to reset the display to its highest possible resolution. Make sure only your HDMI cable is plugged in when you do this -

I connect my ps2 to my lg 32 inch lv3730.It is a full hd 1080p tv. Yet,the graphic quality is very very bad.Even bad than a 15 year old tv.I played it on both lg and very old samsung but the very old...


The problem is your PS2 only outputs 480 resolution video and doesn't upconvert to 1080p. It's going to look awful on 1080p television. Your output and your display have to match in order to achieve quality video results. It will look fine on a 480 resolution set like your old TV's because that's what it was designed for. If you want a better looking game experience on your 1080p TV, upgrade to a PS3.

I have audio but no video with my HDMI connection


You may have the resolution on the PS3 set higher (say 1080p) then what your TV supports (1080i or 720p). Use the Yellow/Red/White cable that came with the PS3 to connect to the TV. Go to that input and check the resolution. Start at a lower resolution and check the HDMI input. If the TV does support 1080p, try a different/better HDMI cable.

Out of range


Right i'm halfway to understanding what's going on.

It sounds like your ps3 is readjusting the resolution to something the new tv isn't compatible with.

Looking at the t.v (bravia v4000), it should be compatible with all resolutions upto 1080p.

What happens when you turn the ps3 on initially (plugged into the new tv) ? It doesn't go straight into the game, so what happens and what boxes in the display settings do you have the resolution set to?

You should only have 720p and 1080p ticked.

The 40v4000 supports 1080p so when the PS3 auto-detected the display settings it set the XMB to 1080p, the 32v4000 supports 720p but the PS3 still thinks its connected to the 40v4000 so it is trying to output 1080p which is out range of the 32v4000. Go to the display settings on the PS3 and auto-detect the display settings again

MY PS3 DOES NOT SEEM TO BE WORK WITH THE HIGH DEFINITON CABLE IT CAME ON FORA FEW SECONDS THEN SCREEN COMES UP WITH NO SIGNAL????


This usually happens when you first buy your ps3 and try to use the HDMI connection immediately. The problem is that the ps3's default output resolution is set to 480i out of the box, and when you try to use an HDMI connection first, HDMI can't do that resolution. HDMI only does 480p, 720p 1080i and 1080p.
See :)

This also happens if you move your ps3 a lot. As it is, HDTV's are either 1080p (full HD) or 720p (including 1080i). If, for example, your tv is 1080p, when you set your display settings in the ps3 menu, it will set your XMB, or ps3 main menu to the max resolution of your tv, 1080p in this case. The resolution will automatically adjust when you start a game, and that game has a native resolution output. That's why, most of the time, games will play in 720p, because that's there native, or original, resolution. This is also the reason why sometimes people have no display on there TV, or a black screen, and when they play a game, that will actually display. That's because your tv can ACCEPT that resolution of that game.

  • Have your ps3 in standby mode (red light).
  • Now, press and hold the power button in the front down. Your ps3 will beep twice. Let it go almost exactly after you heard the second beep.
  • Wait 10-15 seconds. A display will show up, and just answer yes to all!

Resolution problem


you cannot fit a pint of water into a half pint glass... in other words you have the ps3 sending a picture that has too much information and resolution for the 720 display you are using.. use another connection method to hook up your ps3 to the tv or use a friends tv that has the higher resolution capabilities and then change the output option in your ps3 it will then work ok on your tv

Time lag between Playstation 3 and LCD TV.


SOURCE: http://boardsus.playstation.com/playstation/board/message?board.id=confrontation&thread.id=735278&view=by_date_ascending&page=2

If your playing with lag on your new HD LCD your at a competitive disadvantage! Everything you see happens seconds later than your opponent who has his/her settings right.
The fix:
1. Connect your PS3 using HDMI Input 2.
2. SELECT or RENAME the HDMI Input to PC. Already pointed out, but this does not make the majority of tv's run in PC mode.
3. On the PS3 start-up menu go to Settings---> Display ---->
Choose HDMI ----> DO NOT choose AUTOMATIC ----> SELECT CUSTOM ----->
4. Now, Select all the Resolution options EXCEPT 720p. This will force your games into 1080p mode. What it will also do is drop any game that doesn't have 1080i/p support into 480. Games like Burnout Paradise, Vegas 2, Heavenly Sword, NHL 08 and more will be dropped into SD (480) rather than HD. Your picture will be terrible. 720p is standard gaming resolution currently, 1080i/p is not.
5. Save and complete the display setup.
6. Turn off the PS3. Turn off the TV.
7. Turn on the TV. Turn on the PS3.
8. Complete! (Lag eliminated). Please spread this around!

*The key to eliminating ALL LAG is modern LCD's need to be in PC MODE (NOT GAME MODE) On many tv's, PC mode requires you to use a VGA or DVI connector. You'll either need to buy an HDMI adapter or an HDMI to VGA / DVI cable if that's the case.
and the Source MUST BE IN 1080p so that the TV can use it's NATIVE RESOLUTION.* Please, check your tv's native resolution. If you have a plasma that only does 720p, your native resolution is probably 720p. You do not need to follow these steps, it will only make things worse. If your tv's native resolution is 720p, obviously you want to keep your display settings at 720p on your PS3. If your native resolution is 1080i, you shouldn't go selecting 1080p. If your native resolution is 1080p on your TV, you need to be aware that removing 720p as an option will force many games into 480.

Keep these things in mind and remember that the steps above are far from a cure all solution. .
