Trouble getting HD picture

Having trouble getting HD quality picture coming through on friends tv. HDMI is plugged in and am pretty sure that the tv is 1080i. Could it be that the PS3 is set for 780? I threw in a Blue Ray trying to impress my buddy and it looked very un-HD........he banned me from his house due to the disappointment.

Are you guys setting your PS3 to 1080i or 1080p in the SETTINGS section? Just because you have an HDMI connection doesn't mean it automaticall switches it to max definition

Your PS3 working doesn't mean a thing for the cable unless you are using that cable for your PS3. I would bet you have a bad HDMI. They are pretty sensitive to being bent. Try replacing that first. The other thing to check is to first make sure you have the proper input selected on the TV for where you have the HDMI plugged into on your TV.

I had my ps3 hooked up to an hd tv but my tv broke and i have it hooked up to an old tv now. I'm having trouble getting a picture or sound is there any way I can configure it to my old tv?


you need a tv with hdmi to connect too then change settings back to normal but you need it connected to both hdmi and component av at once so you can switch between them both to save the settings. so when you change from hdmi to av you need to change your tv channel from hdmi to either video 1 or 2 then save your settings... hope this helps!

Hi,

Is it a Duplicate Question....Wonder why?

Same reply :0


This is an internal Fault. Diagnosis is required to make sure whether it is Failed T Con Board or Light Engine. I do not think that it would really help by changing the TV settings. This was a Common Problem with Old LCD's where you got Blurry Spots specially while Playing Real Fast Movies or Games. On Few Occasions, it as Corrupted Firmware.

As i cannot see the Video or Screen from here, more likely what i could guess it is an Internal Fault as you have tried using HDMI, Use different Setting Combination's and you got the same Picture Quality with DVD as well.

So, what i could suggest, get back to the Seller and Lodge an Official Complain and get it Replaced. There is no point in Opening and TV and Inspecting it and Replacing Components when it was less than a month ago.

Let me know, if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

HD Camcorder to Sony HDTV using Component Cables


in order to send hd video to your HDTV, you will need to use a hdmi cable. If you are planning to use component cables make sure you have component output from camcorder..still it is not HD.

You should not lose any picture quality from the DVD player. I am currently having the similar setup with PS3 as the Blu-ray DVD player with HDMI and a Samsung DVD as regular player with component cable to a Samsung LCD TV. Remember the quality on Blu-ray is better than normal DVD so don't expect more than what it is.

You need to make sure that is has enough signal, if you have poor signal, you will get pixels(as oppesed to snowy picture on CRT televisions) make sure all plugs are plugged in correct, and try diff inputs from DirecTV to the Tv to ensure its not the HDMI input thats faulty. Good Luck.

How to get a high definition Picture??


Hi, first of all you need a high definition source. I'm not sure if your cable box is HD but lets take it as an example. The component leads which you are using isn't 'true' HD video quality, what you need is a hdmi cable from your source to your TV.

Your cable box maybe HD with a HDMI output, if it is then you need the lead to come out of the cable box into your tv's HDMI input using a HDMI lead. Then you switch your TV's source to the HDMI input and it then should be producing a HD quality picture, but to truly get the full HD experience you may want to subscripe to a HD channel or purchase a blueray player becasue most cable TV channels are upscaled to HD and the definition is not as good as on a blue ray disc or a true HD channel.

So in conclusion the cable and input you are using is not designed for HD input. I believe your TV is HD, check for HDMI inputs or DVI inputs.

Hope this explains your problem

Cabling -- Panasonic LCD TV into LG DVD player (model no. DV6812P)


Take the basic Red, White, Yellow component cable -- plug it into the backside of the DVD player and plug the other side into the back of the t.v. Make sure to plug the right colors into the right sockets. If there are no available AV inputs on the back of the t.v, plug the other end into your cable box (if you have one).

MY Sony (same model) has OUTstanding picture resolution and quality., I never have blockiness on any of the sports channels. I would say, give Comcast a call and complain about their signal.. they have a tech come over for free diagnostics on your wiring..
