Pleasee help me i have a pal ps3 i bought from abu dhabi and went on video output on the ps3 and it already checked standard pal and i tried all 720p 576 1080i 1080p and nothing worked please help me
Connect it up to the tv using HDMI
Unless the tv not HD then your need to use the av components
Also can i ask if the PS3 is used or new ?
Unless your experiencing some sort of handshaking problem between the PS3 and TV, does the picture come and go all the time? Is it a fairly old HDTV?
I also don't get why HDMI wouldn't work when HD video output is not like the differences between NTSC and PAL. 1080P outputs at 1080p24, 1080p50, and 1080p60 formats all of which any HDTV doesn't matter where it was purchased as long as it is 1080P ready well be able to display the HD video from the PS3. The only problems that occur are when say a blu-ray's extra's are in SD format and start outputting at 480 when your TV only supports PAL @ 576 the rest of the film in HD will work fine though. (I used 1080P as an example, if your TV only supports 720P the same applies it still should work in any country) Unless again it's a handshaking problem.
i m hoping one of you can help me! I am in Canada for a few months and have braught my playstation3 with me from Europe (i guess its safe to assume this is a PAL, there is no sticker under it). I am trying to connect it to my hotel room TV, which is a pretty crappy TV not even flat screen, when i connect it and switch it on, the picture comes up but flicking up and down very fast, basically making it impossible to use. If i am lucky i can read some of the PS3 menu items on screen.
is there a way for me to use my PS3 in Canada? it is connected using the red, white and yellow cables (not sure what you call them). I also have a set of HDMI cables that the TV has ports for.
I had the same problem.
You should buy component cable for PS3 (it costs about 10-20 $) and connect your PS3 with this cable to the TV.
at the risk of sounding stupid .. what is a component cable :s ? can you send me a link to one so i know what i m looking for.
ok so i ve connected it using my HDMI cables, and its now in colour, but the screen is still flickering up and down rapidely. Any advice?
i googled PS3 component cable and the results looked a lot like what i have.. which i thought was HDMI cables .. (the green, blue, red video cables + red and white audio ones)
