When you first go to turn your PS3 on, instead of just pressing the power button quickly, hold it for 5-6 seconds until it beeps again, then let go. This forces the PS3 to autodetect and will bring it up in the 720P thats native to your monitor. I move my PS3 around between 3 totally different TVs and am constantly having to do this, it works.

If you're getting audio, then your PS3 is sending a signal through your HDMI cable. The problem sounds like your PS3 is sending a 1080P signal while your TV is a 720P Max Rez monitor.

Connect a composite cable from your PS3 to your TV, switch to that input, and change your output resolution to 720P or Auto. It is most likely set to 1080P.

The first suggestion is almost right.You need to set the video out to auto.This setting will auto adjust to the maxium resloution of the display.This will prevent problems in the future.The second issue is the set might not be hdcp compliant,which would prevent video to be displayed.

When I hook up my LG plasma to PS3 and Cable box, I don't get any sound or colour on the PS3. The TV /cable box works fine. Any ideas on the wiring?


What type of connections are you using? HDMI? Component? Composite? What audio? HDMI? Optical Digital? Analog audio?

Are you saying you get video from the PS3, but it is in Black&White only? Is there an NTSC/PAL selector on the PS3? If so, it may be set wrong. Set to NTSC if you're in the United States.
