Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

Games in both B&W and color

Just bought Call of Duty and Metal Gear Solid for PS3 and I set up the tv and the PS3 but when playing games it varies from B&W to color and when in B&W I cannot see much of anything. As I type this I just re-started the system and held the power button for 4 seconds for the 2nd beep and the game still started in B&W. Any other ideas???

I have a 60gb ps3 that i got from singapore and when i try to play the red dead redemption game i got from ausralia on a standard panasonic tv, it says it cannot play due to the current video ouput setting...


it sounds like a version conflict to me ie a NTSC copy of the game with a pal PS3 or visa versa.
an excerpt from wikipedia
"Two of the seventh generation of video game consoles have regional lockout, so games imported from other countries cannot be played on foreign versions of those consoles without some form of alteration to bypass the lockout. However, a number of games for the Xbox 360 have been confirmed as region free and will play on a unit from any region, although it is up to the publisher if a game is region free or not. Like the CD-i and the Panasonic 3DO, the PlayStation 3 is one of the few home consoles to be advertised as region-free.[2][3] However, while region free for PS3 games, there is region locking for backwards compatible PS2 and PS1 games, as well as DVD and Blu-ray Disc movies. Additionally, some games separate online players per region, such as Metal Gear Solid 4 Online. A PSN store only contains content for its own country, for example the UK store will not supply usable map packs for an imported US copy of Call of Duty 4. The PS3 actually supports hardware region locking for PS3 games as well, based on Blu-ray regions,[4] but as of current it is unused and all current region lockouts and separations are about online services."

Perhaps checking the video setting and game settings under "settings" in the home menu might help.

My Playstation 3 has stopped playing speech sounds properly. On FIFA there is no commentary or David Hayter EA Sports intro. And in Metal Gear Solid 4 during the cutscenes as well as the Codec, most speech...


I hope this helps:

On the XMB, go to
Settings; Display Settings; and choose Video Output Settings.

- Click Video Output Settings.
- Choose HDMI
- Choose Custom
- Tick all of the boxes - Only the ones that your TV supports.
- Move on and the PS3 will test the settings. Screen will go blank and return.
- Press X to save settings.
- When it has finished saving the video settings, choose "Set Audio Output Settings"
- Choose HDMI
- Choose Manual
- Tick the boxes that your TV can support and move on and save settings.
Tip: If you aren't sure which ones your TV supports, go back and choose Automatic and then Press Enter to save settings.

If it fails, call Sony. If its a particular game, then maybe a patch is needed for that game.

Weird


I believe only voices from other players come through on the headset. Other game sounds (cutscenes, gun shots, explosions, etc.) come through the TV. Try checking the Chat or Accessory settings on your PS3 to see if there's an option to change where the sound comes from. It'll be in the PS3 dashboard (press the PS3 button on your controller). I hope this helps and don't forget to rate. Good luck and thank you!

PS3 Audio Output Problems


Inside of most any system there is what I like to call the sound chip, I am not sure what the actuall name ofit is. This sound chip is the final stage of amplification of the circuit board before going out to the any other sound device. I have found in several cases that this single chip goes bad. Depending on what brand it is the cost to replace this single chip can be anywhere from a few dollars up to a little less than $100. As for the being able to hear certain parts of saound what is happening is the chip is divided up into several different channels thus if just a few channels of the chip goes out all you would hear is the background noise or nothing at all depending what you are playing.
