Hello

Recently I got a bravia kdl40w and got a ps3 through redemption.
While waiting for my ps3 i tried a friends 60 gig ps3, looked great full HD.

Finally my ps3 arrived i tired 3 different hdmi cables and got a problem which is a blurry and pixel lated image, the tv does receive the signal as 1080p but just not displayed properly.

Ive tried my friends 60 gig console and his hdmi cable, same problem.
tried a friends 40 gig model and had the same problem.
Have tried 3 different hdmi cables and same thing.

Ive even tried my ps3 on a bravia V series, although its not full hd you can easily tell that the image is still blurry and pixel lated.

Contacted sony both on playstation and TV centers, and both were not very helpful. I get the feeling its the tv settings but im no wiz with these things.

So PLEASE, if any one has any suggestions or advice please offer some assistance. Im almost at my wits end here. sony said i should send ps3 back but im not sure if that is the problem.

Any help would be much appreciated, thank you.

Hello Cube

Tricky one to fault find as the symptoms indicate both the Source and Display have problems.

What happens if you set the Source to 1080i?

hi joe

when I put the display setting to 1080i (or any of the resolutions which are lower) i have the same issue. the tv displays it, it registers as 720p or 1080i, its just that the picture is blurry and pixel lated.

Im starting to think it may just be the settings on my tv but im not sure. Perhaps calibrate something, like I said im no whiz.

Have you tried all of the HDMI Inputs on the TV - I'm assuming it has more than one.

I'd also try setting the TV back to its Default settings using the User Menus.

I tried all the different hdmi ports, still same thing.

And just now i did the factory reset and its still the same issue.

I'll keep trying to research this, call sony again.

If you have any further suggestions feel free to post em. thanks again.

Hello Cube

Does the problem alter if your playing DVD or BD Discs?

It could be you have a Damaged Input on the TV and Damaged Output on your PS3.

hey joe

Dvds have the same problem, blurays look much better than dvds but you can still notice it if you look hard enough.

I've had the same thought but not sure if it would be the port for the ps3 or
the tv. I do have a satellite dish for multi language channels, its not hooked up to my tv at all, but could that cause interference?

Here are some pic i took that might give you a better idea of the problem.
Games is lost planet on 720 p
1080p games look slightly better but not by much.
the problem is much worse when seen in motion but hope the pics help
cheers

Do not panic...:nono:
The problem is neither the cables nor the TV. You have incompatibility with the Playstation 3.
Actually the playstation 3 supports v1.1 HDMI but your TV supports v1.3 HDMI...and that''s all.
You have to find through this forum or try Google, the update version for your playstation 3. Probably this will fix all the incompatibilities.
If you can't find such a file or there isn't any file about this particular update, then you might think to downscale your TV's HDMI to SONY support (from 1.3 to 1.1). This is a hard solution. But I think that if you search you will find what you want through the Internet (search something like "playstation update firmware" etc). Good luck.
