Ok, you need to do the following :

Turn the PS3 off into standby (red light on)

Press and hold the power button. It will beep when you first press it, beep again 5 seconds. Release the power button when you hear this second beep.

The PS3 will start up and reset the display

Make sure you do this with the HDMI cable connected.

Hope this helps

PS3 start-up. ''Invalid Format'' presented on screen. Can hear sound but no picture. TV is LG Plasma Model # 60PY3D


turn off the ps3. when you turn it back on by the console hold the button down until you hear a beep, keep holding it down until you hear a second beep, this will reset the format back to normal, if you have hdmi or anything else you can change it then from your video settings menu.

My tv says invalid format when i connect my ps3 using an hdmi cable


Your PS3 is sending a 1080P signal to a TV that can only handle 720P or 1080i. Connect the PS3 using the A/V cables, fix the resolution and then go back to HDMI.

Lg 42' lcd cant get video signal i can get sound and menu pictures all come up. but no output from cable or ps3


I guess your either using the scart socket or the HDMI socket. You have gone into the menu and changed your input source to either HDMI or Scart havent you? Does your TV aerial input work when switched to Antenna on the input source menu. If these dont happen then you have a faulty main pcb.

The format of signal your pushing with you ps3 is to high adjust it down to stadard def and work you way back up most tv's are 720p and your ps3 will try 1080p as a defualt with your tv does not understand, also check the cable as well there are diffrent versions of hdmi such as 1.0,1.2. etc etc make sure you using a lowest bandwith cable that way there are no conflicts.

Zenith Z42P3 "Invalid Format" message from upconverter DVD


Ran into the same problem with this DVD player and my LG tv. Try this:
Open the DVD tray, with the DVD tray open press the HDMI select button until the proper resolution for your tv is illuminated, put the DVD back in, close the tray and try again. Simple fix -- worked beautifully for me.

Good luck
