Assuming your TV will support 720p signals, check how you have the TV connected to the Playstation 3. Change your video cable to component video or HDMI, depending on the TV. (The Composite input is limited to 480i (SD) pictures. The same is true for a SCART connection.) Put the TV to the new input by pressing the Input Source button on the TV Remote or through the menu depending on your TV.
You may have to do the first of these steps before changing your cables and the TV input source (I'm not sure). On the Playstation, select Settings and then Display Settings.Choose your video output (component or HDMI). Next select all resolution that the TV can use. (Most 32" TVs only do 720p. There are some that can do 1080i or 1080p.) Confirm the video connection works. Then Save your settings.
the playstation detects that you are changing display settings. hopefully you still have the old red yellow and white cord that we all used to use to plug in stuff to your tv . use this cord to connect your playstation to the tv, it should pop up that you want to change display settings. then after you go through that unplug and recconect the hdmi and it should run you through it again,
Another option - when you plug in your ps3 to the tv , turn everything on the tv and playstation. if nothing pops up turn off your tv and playstation , literaly unplug them from the outlet for a good minute
then plug everything back in and you should fix it that way. hope one of these work
It could be that the PS3 is outputting a higher resolution than your TV can handle. Here is an excerpt from the PS3 manual: If the video output settings do not match those required for the TV in
use, the screen may go blank when the resolution is changed. The screen
should, however, automatically go back to its original resolution after a
while. If the screen remains blank for more than 30 seconds, turn off
the system. Then touch the power button on the system front for at least
five seconds to turn the system on again. The video output settings
will automatically be reset to the standard resolution.
PlayStation 3 (PS3) is a high-definition gaming console that supports
both standard AV connections and high-resolution connections (such as
HDMI). Most of the older Philips TVs come with a standard AV input.
Newer, flat-panel Philips TVs include standard AV inputs and
high-resolution inputs. To get the best video quality
out of your PS3, using an HDMI connection is recommended if the option
is available. The PS3 does not include an HDMI cable, only a standard AV
Connect the flat end of the PS3 AV cable into the "AV Multi Out" port on the back of the PS3.
Connect the "red," "white" and "yellow" prongs on the
opposite end of the PS3 AV cable into the corresponding "red," "white"
and "yellow" AV inputs on the TV (usually located on the side or in the
Press the "Source" button on the Philips TV remote.
Select the "AV" video display mode.
Turn on the PS3. The PS3 logo will appear on the screen.
Have you tried changing the settings on the ps3? If you go into the display settings adjust them Also if you want to change the ps3 to the default
If the video output settings on the PLAYSTATION®3 do not match
those of the cable or TV in use, there may be no picture. If the screen
goes blank, turn the system off.
Then, with only the
PLAYSTATION®3 and the TV connected, touch the system's power button for
more than 5 seconds to turn the system back on. The video output
settings will automatically be reset to the standard resolution.
Everybody is having problems with sony products and HDMI cables. It's on a lot of forums. So, your not alone.
Most of the solutions are:
1. Unplug your TV for 30 mins.
2. Plug TV back in and put it on HDMI for PS3.
3. Hold down the power button for 10secs on the PS3
That should solve the problem.
Yes and no. Yes you can connect the PS3 to the plasma using the component video inputs, games and videos will play fine. However the native resolution of the TV is only 480P (852X480 pixels) which is much lower than the 1080P that the PS3 is capable of. If you want a tv that can get the best possible image from the PS3 you would need a TV with full 1080P resolution and HDMI ports for digital input. Hope this helps!
I am a TV repair technician and what you are experiencing with your plasma and PS3 is a HDMI compatibility problem. The Philips plasma and the PS3 electronic handshaking (EDID) are not right. This happens alot with an older version of HDMI like 1.1(Philips Plasma) and a newer version of HDMI 1.3 (PS3). A tv firmware or PS3 firmware update will not resolve the problem. I would recommend using the HD component video cables and that should work just fine for playing High Definition BluRay movies.
My HDMI has stopped working. I have had a technician from Dish network out to my house 3 times and they have replaced the receiver and the HDMI cable and were unable to get the set to work all I get is a blue screen and a message which reads no signal. I also cannot use mt set using 3 rca cables connected to the component input when set to 1080 I keep intermittenly get a black screen then a blue screeen and sometimes a no signal message. I have to watch the tv set to 720 on component 2 and it is the most stable in that setting. Please send help
For real try this:
Turn off the tv as well as the ps3 (to where the red ps3 light is on);
Then just hold down the power button in the front for like 15 seconds or so, at least until you hear a beep.
Then turn the Tv back on, and hopefully once you get the tv back on the correct hdmi input, you'll see that little message offering you to switch to optimum settings.
Hope it works. Did for me.
