PS3, playing blu-rays

Playing games on my PS3 is fine, but when I put in a Blu-ray, the picture is very blurry, unwatchable. I've tried different HDMI cables, PS3's, using different inputs, but nothing helps. If I use component cables it's fine, but the picture isn't as clear as it only broadcasts 780p. Sony has suggested that I use a silver plated HDMI cable, but I can't locate one.

Wow it seems as though you've pretty much done all of the applicable troubleshooting for this issue. The only other thing I can advise in this case is to consider purchasing a SD card. Some Blu Ray players require a little extra memory to function properly so they come with an SD card slot. Of course no one tells you this when you buy the player but it may be the solution to your problem.

Sharp Aquos LC42d64u has blurry picture...


Hi,

Is it slow and blurry? if yes then return it to warranty immediately. The video processing circuits are malfunctioning and the repair cost is prohibitive if you must pay for it on your own.

I hope it is still under warranty. So, do not delay getting it into the Sharp Authorized facility or back to the retailer you purchased it from.


The connection cable you use could have something to do with it, but is should work on all formats. The best for reliability and absence of blocking is just analog composite - but that is also the lowest picture resolution. S-video is okey too, but it is analog as well. Component is the highest grade; going to hdmi is just another way of receiving the signal - I don't think it will effect the error correction problem in any way. My opinion.

Goodluck..

How to you connect PS3 to to model 37PD5000


Good day!!!

Please try this procedure to connect the PS3 to TV..


The PS3 has a Blu-ray drive that can be used not only for playing games but also for watching high-definition movies. The best way to connect a PS3 to a high-definition viewing device such as a video projector is through the PS3's high-definition multimedia interface (HDMI) output. The HDMI connection can transmit up to 1080p high-definition from the PS3 to the video projector using a single cable. Attaching and setting up the HDMI cable will only take a few minutes and will let you watch high-definition video from the PS3 on the video projector.

  1. Connecting HDMI
    • Attach one end of the HDMI cable to the HDMI output connector of the PS3. Turn the HDMI cable around if it does not slip right into the HDMI output, because the HDMI cable can only fit into an HDMI connector one way.
      Attach the other end of the HDMI cable to the HDMI input connector that is on the video projector. Make sure both sides of the HDMI cable is securely pushed into the connectors of the PS3 and of the video projector. Turn on the video projector. Press the "Menu" button on the video projector's remote. Navigate to the "Sources" setting on the video projector's Menu. Select "HDMI" from the "Sources" setting. Press the "Menu" button on the remote control again to exit the Menu.
    Adjusting the PS3
    • Turn on the PS3. Wait for the "Home" menu to appear on the video projector, although the quality of the video seen from the video projector will be muddied and dark. Navigate from the "Home" menu to the "Systems" icon using the game controller and select the "Display Settings" tab. Choose "Video Output Settings" from the list presented in the screen that appears. Press the right side of the directional pad on the game controller to move to the next screen.
      Choose "HDMI" from the list presented in the screen that appears. Press the right side of the directional pad on the game controller to move to the next screen. Choose "Automatic" from the list presented in the screen that appears. Press the right side of the directional pad on the game controller to move to the "Confirmation" screen. Press the "X" button on the game controller to make the settings active. Return to the PS3's "Home" menu.
    Watching the PS3
    • Insert a Blu-ray disc into the slot at the front of the PS3. Wait as the Blu-ray disc begins to play the video content on the video projector from the PS3 through the HDMI cable.

I have an LG47le5400 tv and a LG blu ray player bd570. While using the player with any kind of dvd I start to get picture drop out after 30 minutes play time. The screen goes blank for 1 to 2 seconds...


I have the same problem! Viewing regular t.v. is fine, as is any VHS tape. But when playing DVD or Blu-Ray, I get dropouts. I've tried three different players and two different HDMI cables. So it must be the HDMI receiver within the actual LG t.v. Would love to know how to fix this without having to replace the television.

Acoustic Solutions 26'' HD TV cannot play PS3 blue ray films


I have recently brought the same TV and had the same problem but I've mangaed to find a soultion.

The automatic setting for Blu Ray on PS3 is Full HD (1080p) but the Acoustic Solutions TV is HD ready (720p). For PS3 games it will automattically change settings for you to 720p. This is why this works straight away but Blu Ray doesn't.

Solution

You need to plug in your PS3 using the scart contection, then on the ps3 menu go to settings > display settings > HDMI. You will then need to attach the HDMI cable and manually set up
HDMI by checking the 720p option and deselect 1080p.

That should then play Blu Rays too. You don't lose too much quality as 720p works nearly as well as 1080p on smaller TVs.

42LG50 TV - Intermittant sound problems with blu-ray HDMI input


You say this doesn't happen on regular cable or when playing a regular DVD. Hmm. Is this Blu-Ray player connected by simplink? HDMI is a bi-directional format cable, so  there are cases in setups where your tv can send commands to your blu-ray player and vice versa. It could be a problem with your blu-ray player that it is sending for some odd reason a mute command to your tv. Or is processing a command that your TV interprets to be a mute command when playing blu-rays. Because if it was the TV itself chances are you'd see this when watching a normal DVD or on cable as well. Since you say you're not, it leads me to believe the issue lies with the blu-ray player itself.

You may want to try a good, Monster Cable, HDMI cable. Visit this page: http://www.monstercable.com/HDMI/advancedhdmi.asp
If you have a standard HDMI cable, it will not support 1080P.

So this is one of the few times that I will recommend spending the money for a better cable.
The better cable improves picture color quality, from 8 bit to 12 bit and it improves audio quality.
