Well everytime we hook up the HDMI for the playstation 3 to the tv it says invalid format how do i fix this


You must make sure your playstation and your TV set are both set for the same video format (1080p, 1080i, 720p, etc.).

You can either go through all your HDTV formats until it synchs up (give each a good 20 seconds or so before moving on), or you can open the display menu for your PS/3 using a different video connection to your set (i.e. composite), setting both to match, then switching them to HDMI.

Everytime I turn on mu playstation 3, no picture comes out in TV.


Try accessing the recovery menu 'safe mode'.



Press and hold the power button until the systems shuts off. (wait 2 seconds)

Press and hold the power button again until you here 3 beeps. Let go.



It should ask you to connect your controller via usb and press the PS button in

the middle of your controller. There will be a menu with 6 options. Try 2-5.


Try using HDMI cables and AV cables.

Hard Disk is corrupted, would rather not reformat.


This is to do a factory hard reset on PS 3 all files and systems settings will be deleted and restored back to factory this should hopefully solve your hard drive a problem. depending on the system reformat clould take 3 1/2 hours do a full format as to clear
Faulty memory

1. Power Off the PS3 via the power switch in back and power back on w/switch.

2. Hold Power Button on the Front until you hear 3 beeps.

3. Then go through the initial setup and then run a full Format via System > Format.. You may need to have our AV cables ready if your using HDMI (in case HDMI isn’t detected after initial reset)

What the h*ll is a formating disc for ps2?


Format disc is what cleans the lenses, you might have dust on the lens and it can't read the disc. you can go to Wal-mart and buy it for $15, its the one thats for PS, PS2, XBox on the Gaming/electronic side. So everytime that happens again, just pop in the disc and it works again!

I'm getting an invalid format on my hdmi inputs when i hook up my ps3. It's wierd because it works on my viszo, but not on my new westinghouse or my samsung.


If you accidentally set your PS 3 for 1080p resolution, when the TV can only support 720p, you get a black screen. The Westinghouse TV I used displayed a message that said "invalid format." To reset the PS 3 to the standard AV format, you shut the PS 3 off. Then you hold the PS 3’s power button down for about 10 seconds. It will reset to standard video

Saving problems


you must have different playstations that have different formats when they were made. when you go to the store to buy a memory card, compare you ps system number with the number that matches the memory card on the package of the memory card.

Ps2 memory card


My memory card has been doing that too. It's either your memory card has gone bad or your ps2 memory card slots is fucked up

SYSTEM ERROR


Your solution depends on if system remain always in error status or it become usual after error message. First you should do hard formatting by removing sim and mmc then pressing four keys i.e. *,3,green send key and power switch simenteniously. Phone will get formatted and problem will be solved. If it doesn't work then we can say that there must be system file error. It can be resolved only by special tools like JAF or UFS.
