My PS3 was working fine, connected to my LG Plasma by HDMI cable. Put it on yesterday and just got black/blank screen with 'invalid format' message moving around the screen? It will still play some games but not all, and as soon as I exit the game it goes back to the problem.
Tried a different HDMI cable and it came good. If HDMI cable is broken, why will it play some games?
Any info/advice appreciated
Solved! Go to solution
if you hold down the on button when turning on the PS3 until it beeps once, this will then reset the video to the minimum resolution (Standard Definition) and you should be able to see the menu.
It'll ask you if you want to output using HDMI, press the PS button and select X. You should be able to figure it out from there
