How can I connect PAL PS3 to NTSC LCD TV ?

39 Replies 21,208 Views Created 25-03-2009

I want to  connect  my european (PAL) PS3 to an  american (NTSC) sony LCD TV.

How can I do it ?

Should the HDMI work ?

Or maybe the component ?

How should I set the PS3 and the TV ?

Please advice.

Gil

Hi

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.

both HDMI and component are worth trying - the standard AV leads (as you have found), aren't :)

just to clarify - is it still flickering using actual HDMI cables (connectors look a bit like a flattened and squished usb connector) ?

are you sure it's component and not composite?

Old TVs had composite (red white yellow) - which won't work...

probably - ish ;)

 

should be red and white (audio), and red blue and green.

One of your red ones is probably orange to show the difference between red audio and red video - I guess! :D

Hello together,

 

I also face the same problem here.

I just moved to the US and my stuff arrived. Full of energy I wanted to connect my PS3 to a Tohshiba regza LED in inhereted by a former colleague.

It is no problem to play, but as soon as I want to watch a Pal (RegionCode2) DVD the screen stays dark.

I can here the sound, talk everything but I can`t see the picture.

 

I also tried to work with the component cable with the same results.

I am also not allowed to get rid of the 576 pic in the settings.

 

Do you have any suggestions for me to try!?

 

Thanks in advance!!!

 

 

Andre

I have my UK (PAL) PS3 connected to a Korean (NTSC) TV via an HDMI cable. It was working fine until I stupidly tried re-setting the video output to deal with a problem playing DVDs. I now can't even play games (which was previously fine), presumably because it's gone back to 576i which isn't supported on an NTSC TV. I just get a message on my TV saying it doesn't support the resolution.

 

Is my only option to wait until back in the UK, connect there and re-tick the other resolution options? If I connect it to an old PAL TV via the composite cable will I only have the option of 576i or can I re-select the higher resolutions?

you could try resetting the video again - which MAY help...
hold down front power button until second beep

I have done thanks but unfortunately it still stays at 576i which isn't supported on NTSC TV. I think my only option is connecting to a PAL TV and re-selecting the other resolution options (besides 576i) but I'm not sure I'll be able to select other options if connected through the standard cable.
