PS3 fat 20gig PROBLEM

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
ok, so my ps3 video outputs are f'd. it works without a problem to my lcd monitor via hdmi.

but hdmi does not work to any of my tvs, nor does the colour stream cables.

only with the colour stream cables is when it somewhat works. But looks all fuzzy. the best way i can desribe it is it looks like a vhs movie tracking.

any ideas or sites you can suggest would be greatly appreciated

help me ocn, your my only hope

How long of an HDMI cable are you using? If you're pushing 720p on your monitor with a long cable that could explain it. 1080p typically requires a shorter cable.

Does you television support 1080p?
While connected to your television, hold down the power button on your PS3 until it beeps twice.
This resets the video connection and will revert the PS3 to a resolution your television supports.

If the cable was like 100 feet long signal might degrade, but I really doubt his it that long.

Does the signal flicker when you wiggle the connector in the ps3? Solder joints in a 5 year old machine might have been messed up over time.
