Sony KDL-26S2010....PS3 XMB ?


Active Member
Hi guys, i've got a lend of the above TV while mine is in getting repaired.
I've connected my PS3 up, but the screen wont display the PS3 XMB?
It plays the games fine (put the disc in and it automatically loads up) but whenever i want to go back to the XMB it goes black (can still hear it tho)

any ideas?

You've probably got different resolution / input options still on your PS3 from the old TV. Whilst your PS3 is in standby press and hold the power but for 5-6 seconds, until you hear the second beep, and it will reset the PS3 video output to a universally friendly 480p. From there just a case of re-selecting the resolutions which your loan TV supports in from the video options on the XMB. HTH
