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.

Ps3 works fine with hdmi on one tv but not on another. have cable hooked up with hdmi with no problems, but ps3 just has black screen.


You need to reconfigure the settings so it only has 480i because your other tv might not except 1080i 780i 780p or 780pi

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!

HDMI-can't get tv to stay 1080i


This is natural, the PS3 does not stretch the signal like the Xbox does so games play at there native resolution (720p) there is nothing wrong with your TV or your PS3 and you would not see any difference in the games graphics if it was in 1080i. I'm playing my PS3 on a 46" 1080p TV and my PS3 games look great in 720p.

PS3 display settings


Check the owners manual for your TV to see what the max. resolution is and then confirm settings in ps3 menu
sounds like you have the right resolution but wrong type of signal (interlaced or progressive (eg. 480i, 480p))

Cant change my display settings from the 480i input


Whay kind of cable are you hooking it to your TV with...?

The one that comes with the ps3 is only capable of NTSC, or 480. If that is the cable you are trying to use, you will have to get an HDMI cable, or the component cable (the one with 5 rca's plugs, 3 vid 2 audio), as these cables are capable of the full 720 and 1080 resolutions.

My tv shows its's geting 1080i only


1080p signal... THE MITSU. WD-65731 has a resolution of 1080p its just the res your PS3 is pumping into your screen is loaded with a little bit more pixels than you 1080p res MITSU. I suggest getting a MITSU WD-57731 since it has a 1080P/24 input. and has great clarity and HD ample for the BD of your PS3. however the differences in picture rate and quality is very small. goodluck.

Unhooked ps3 from an hd tv and plugged it into an sd tv and it shows no picture.


when in standby mode(redlight) push and hold the power power button until you hear the second beep. This should reset your PS3 to it's standard 480i resolution.
