I have had this problem for over a week . I have contacted Sony and television manufacturer VIZIO. No solution could be found from Sony or Vizio. I have tried search engines...I found one forum where my issue was being discussed ... the person who was having problem fixed it, however they did not post how. OMGWTF! I have accumulated at minimum 10 hours attempting to resolve this.
Meat and Potato:
overlapping 3d image
whenever I enable any of my televisions three available options , tb , sbs or sensio , I get a distorted image.
What normally is displayed center screen is displayed on the right of my television screen or near the top of the screen .The rest of the image is then displayed on the left or near the bottom of the screen .
If what you should see is as follows .
this is a complete sentence.
this is what the television displays in 3D.
te sentence. this is a comple
or the television displays the image cut in half with the bottom of the image on the top of my screen and the top of the image on the bottom of my screen .
The television is new. I have tried with two identical televisions. I have correct hdmi cables. The ps3 recognises the televisions 3d capability . I am at a loss on how to resolve this .
Dear God I only want to enjoy some ps3 in 3d.
thank you in advance for your time and possible solutions .

the television has sbs, tb and sesio 3d modes. All three display a image that is cut in half and displayed incorrect.
as with many companies the complete manual is not included...supposedly to help cut down on paper consumption and help our environment ... thats a steaming pile of horse manure...if the companies truly wanted to help our environment and not just spare themselves of the cost of a included complete manual they would use recycled paper ....that would be a true eco-friendly gesture.
The manual is available for download from Vizio however it does not mention this problem .
A related note. Apon my investigation of my issue regarding 3d I have encountered an equal amount of "...Oh my God 3D is amazing..." and "...The picture is great in 2d the 3D is either OK or complete rubbish..."
thank you again,

I'll be honest. I think 3D is a massive gimmick and total waste of time, however there's probably somebody else out there who has the same tv, or a similar experience who'll be able to help you.
For all I know, it may be that the PS3 uses a mode of 3D that the TV doesn't support. That's my only guess. Perhaps someone else can offer better advice or their experiences too.

I like batman.
I did not consider buying the batman game until I read how "AMAZING this game is in 3D..."
However I am again "on the fence" about the game until I can resolve my 3D issue .

If the image is side by side, or top and bottom these are also versions of 3D supported on some games.
It's whether the HDTV supports this type of 3D, so it might be worth checking the menu and going through each 3D display option to see if the picture looks right?
Let us know how you get on,

When using 3D on the PS3 the PS3 will automatically tell the TV to switch to it's 3D mode.
The type of 3D the PS3 uses is 'Active 3D' ( although there are 1 or 2 games that use the side-by-side method ). You'll need check to see if your TV supports this type of 3D.
If it does, connect the PS3 to the TV with an HDMI cable.
Then on the PS3 menu go to >> Settings >> Display Settings >> Video Output Settings.
The PS3 will then check to see what resolution your TV supports and also if it supports 3D.
If the PS3 detects a compatible 3D TV it will then ask you for the screen size.
After doing this you can then put on a 3D game or movie, the game/film will then ask if you would like to switch to 3D mode. Select this, then both the PS3 and TV will automatically switch to 3D.

First I would like to thank you for your replies especially since this has been so frustrating for me.
second I am glad I found this forum . I will certainly come here from now on with any playstation tech problem that I am having and will post suggestions to others problems when appropriate .
I can not say , yet, if the problem has been "solved". The person on the other forum "fixed it" (the same issue) yet they neglected to tell that forum how. They also had Vizio television .
My television displays a PASSIVE 3D technology .
I put in Black Ops and the television prompted me to switch to 3D. I selected option to switch and the television went into "auto" 3D mode. I can not select "auto" 3D mode from the television itself only sbs, tb, or sensio.
"auto" mode on a PASSIVE 3D television the 3D works on black ops. I can not say if I am so impressed because the 3D is fantastic or I finally am able to experience it in a game on my own equipment .
I do not understand why Vizio doesn't give you the option for "auto" 3D until I boot the media. It logically appears to me that "auto" detect 3D would be the first choice for a person new to the 3D television experience( not tb, sbs, or "sensio")
The 3D works and is good on a passive television with black ops .
I have bookmarked this page and will update with performance of other 3D media relevant to this thread however the 4 games and 5 movies I am playing through next are not 3D . It may be a short wait for a update .
I am going to buy the Batman game now. After I dive into these 4 games. Yes, the 3D in an older game such as Black Ops is good enough to warrant the purchase and get me anxious to see how good the 3D is in future games.
not a big sci-fi fan , yet, Tron looked "amazing" in 3D with my set up. Be clear I said "amazing" not "AMAZING".
I will post my thoughts on it in this thread.Future 3D games .
