How do i fix when i hook up hdmi cord and the screen wont display and when i hook up vga it does but i want hdmi for my ps3?


You must have to make setting in your ps3 and Display device. Set the display device at auto option for input source. It may be set at VGA. that why you get output of VGA but it does not display output from ps3

My lg flatron n2294a - PM displays an "out of range" message and won't wirk with my ps3 when using the hdmi or AV option. Whats wrong?


Your resolution on your ps3 may be too high for the tv to display. Hook up your PS3 to you TV with the HDMI cable. Now, when you turn on your PS3, hold the power button on the PS3 for 5 seconds. It will reset the PS3 video options and recognize the HDMI connection. It will then search for the correct resolution settings on the TV. Press (X) to confirm. And that's it. You should be set. If not, then the TV is acting rather strange.

Option 1

My ps3 wont change to hdmi gone through display settings and wont connect with hd tv says theres error somewhere any ideas how to solve this?


Hi, what you need to do is reset the video display. Do this by following steps :

Step 1. Turn the PS3 off into standby (red light on)

Step 2. Press and hold the power button. It will beep once when you first press it, then again 5 seconds later. When you hear this second beep let go of the power button.

Step 3. Wait for your PS3 to start up.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa

Cant see the screen to change my native resolution and cant get my PS3 to show any picture on my tv. Just changed ps3 from one tv to another and it wont display.TV techs say change native resolution to...


These newer game console (PS3 in particular) don't like to be changed from one TV\Monitor to another. I changed mine several times before I had problems with it. I guess, it was once I hooked it up to an HD TV\Monitor that it didn't want to display on a Non-HD TV\Monitor. The way I fixed it was by resetting\restoring it to original settings. WARNING: This will most likely wipe-out all saved games, demos, & etc. Restoring your PS3 to original settings. This is how it's done: Turn off PS3, Unplug PS3, Wait a couple minutes and re-insert plug, Push & hold-down power button until you hear 4 beeps (1,1,2) then let off the power. It should show you a page with restoring options, or a prompt of YES or NO of wanting to enter the Restore Options Page. Choose the one that you would like to do. See MADHATTER COMPUTERS.
