Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
I have 2 games that will not run because it says the of the current video settings. Other games with exact same requirements run ok. TV is standard def connected with composite cables. I tied different TV, also standard def but with component inputs. Cannot change from 480i res. If connected to HD Samsung 22" PC monitor they run but of course no audio (HDMI/DVI cables). What are my options? I don't really want to buy an HD TV right now.
All games should run regardless of the settings. Are they PS3 games or games from the PS1 or PS2? That could also make a huge difference. The 40GB PS3 is not fully backwards compatible. Also, if they are PS3 games, try the reset default video settings. That might even work. Here is how to do that.
Reset the Video Output Settings. While the PLAYSTATION 3 system is in standby mode (red light on the front of the system), hold down the touch-sensitive On/Off button on the front of the system until the system goes into standby mode again . (So the light cycle would go from: red light to --> green light --> then back to red light) This will ensure that you have held down the On/Off button long enough to reset the Video Output Settings. Once you turn it back on, it should work fine.
I hope this helps. Good luck!!
