Black screen

8 Replies 660 Views Created 08-05-2012
I have just got my gt5 game out of the drawer after a long break. I was having problems during races the screen would go black but the race was still going. When the picture came back I would find myself crashed into a wall of off the track ( not fun and very fustrating ). When I put the disc in yesterday it prompted me to update in which I agreed. 1 of 15 came up on the screen and a progress bar and a message stating that the upgrades required 4000 some odd meg of hd space. I agreed and left it run over night in which it took from aprox midnight until 8am to complete. I finally got a chance to race only to find the same black screen crash into wall problem. HELP!!! What can I do?

I have changed my resolution from 1080 to 720. The game now runs without going black. Seems a waste of resolution only being able to run on the lower setting, but I am just happy to be driving again. Thanks heaps timmy6321.

So you have this issue with other games?

 

Could be your TV/Monitor not coping with the resolution and going black.

I don't have the problem with any other game. I have my PS3 running on my 50 inch Samsung HD plasmaTV. I just use the auto resolution. I have not tried to select a lower resolution. Do you think that may be the problem? If so what res should I select?

No worries.

 

Had the same issue with my LG Plasma. Turns out that if I selected the first of the 1080 options it was fine, but had issues with 1080p

 

I now run it on a 23inch LG LED monitor, and it is the best picture I have ever used.

Hey there!

 

Instead of necessarily accepting 720p for GT5 (and everything else) - there's a couple things you can test out.

 

Firstly - go through Settings -> System Settings -> Restore Default Settings (this will only wipe settings, not data.)

 

Then, if you haven't already, go through Settings -> Display Settings -> Video Output Settings and choose Automatic.

 

Depending on the outcome, then go through the above, and instead of Automatic, choose Custom and HDMI and alternately DESELECT 1080p / 1080i and see if either work for you.

I have now tried resolution on 1080i and game runs fine. It seems 1080p was the only resolution that had a problem. I am back racing with good definition. Thanks again for everyone's help.
