Hey daashman,

According to information provided by the manufacturer, this particular Samsung model supports both VGA and DVI-type cable connections. The Playstation 3 however, does not currently support cables of either of these formats.

The good news is that there are ways around these limitations, typically in the form of a cable adaptor. Most models of the Playstation 3 should have an option for owners to use an HDMI cable to connect their TV or monitor, and many major electronic retailers often sell HDMI to DVI adaptors or adaptor cables of varying lengths.

If you're not quite sure what to look for, I would suggest checking out an online search engine for "HDMI to DVI adaptors." This should pull up a number of links that can provide you with not only detailed pictures, but also average pricing of the products available to you as well.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron

Have a PS3 slim, when i turn it on at connect it to the TV with the Component cables, everything works fine, picture shows and the sound comes out just fine, but when i try to connect it with the HDMI...


You need to turn on the tv and set to HDMI, Then power on the PS3 and hold down the on (standby) button until it beeps again twice and it will pick up the TV and display on the HDMI,

If this doesnt work go to system settings and video settings and set the output to HDMI.

Yeah you can, Go to Bestbuy and ask someone from geeksquad to give you a "bluetooth device" or something you can use to sync your ps3 to your computer, or simply connect wirelessly to the connection from your ps3!

Trying to connect hdmi to dvi cable from my ps3 to my monitor and i see no picture on my monitor


the ps3 doesnt do an auto picture adjust you need to reset the display.
To do this turn off the ps3 and when you have the red standby light pres and hold the power button till you hear a second beep then release. that will reset the display and ask you yo use the new hdmi cable

Games will not load ps3


here is one of the best answers that I ran across in the past about said issue.

this is what i would do :
First of all, try playing all of your games and see if its just one disk or ur ps3, following that i would say u put in a blu-ray movie and check if that works, if it doesn't, then u are in serious trouble ( not really!). Get a USB Memory Stick( u know one of those little things u plug in a computer and can save all of ur stuff in) save ur important stuff. and then after that reset ur system settings, u can do that by:
Settings> System Settings> Restore System Settings
after that try it and if it doesnt work, go again to system settings but this time around, go to restore ps3 system, u can do that by:
Settings> Sysem Settings> Restore PS3 System.
it should be noted that all of ur stuff will be deleted, so i hope u saved all of ur game saves on that usb flash stcik thing.
if it doesnt work then do the following:
call sony:
SCEA Consumer Services
1-800-345-SONY (7669)
Monday - Saturday 6:00 AM - 8:00 PM PST
Sunday 7:00 - AM 6:30 PM PST
and tell them about ur problem, they will tell u to restore system settings or restore ps3 system, and thats what i told u, if it doesnt work, they will ask for ur adresss ( i hope u live in North America) and will ask u ur email, phone number and all that. After that they will send u a box( takes around 4-5 business days for the box to get to ur house, but it really matters where u live) and u put ur ps3 in that box, send it back, and then they will fix it, if they cant they will either send u a refurbished ps3 which is someone elses ps3 but dont worry its as good as brand new or if not, they will send u a new ps3. which will take sbout 4-5 business days, and again depends on where u live!
