Default PS3 has a Green Tint??

I have a Westinghouse 32" 720P/1080i tv. When I plug my friends PS3 into the component cables and tell the PS3 to display in either 720P or 1080i I get a definate greenish tint in the bakground. When I tell it to display in 480i or 480P it looks fine.

I have a coaxel connection through my school that shows channels in 720P and 1080i and it looks perfect. I also have a normal DVD player plugged into the components and that looks and works fine too.

My only problem is when the PS3 is plugged into the components and is set to 1080i or 720P. I don't think it can be the cables because 480 looks fine.

I don't have it into a HDMI because the cable is expensive, and its not even my PS3. I checed the cabeling numerious times and everything is on nice and snug.

Please help!!

Multi-AV adapter is it good quality or not? Are you using the Composite Video with RCA. I've seen that green tint before the cause was the software or program. What game are you using when you see the tint problem Can the game handle 720p or 1080i settings. More like it can only do 480i and 480p progressive. Real test would go HDMI but you said that's expensive...




Okay do you have these cables? These are for component video (red, blue, green) and audio red/white.



The PS3 includes several A/V cable options using the Multi-Out A/V connector on the back of the unit. Our PS3 included a standard A/V cable which includes no-frills RCA connectors with composite video and two-channel audio. This will not give you a high quality picture.

Yellow band with red and white connector is that what you have? If so you're not going to get 720P or 1080i....

I have those cabels you showed, I have them pluged in (red blue green) and the (red white) for audio. I then went into the PS3 video options and set it to 720P and it turned green (even the menu) I tried 1080i and it turned green also. I tried 480P and it looked normal.

Everything has a green tint though, games, the menu, and blueray movies unless I set it to 480P.

So are you suggesting that the supplied component cables can't support 720P or 1080i in which case I would need to get a HDMI cable?

I'm still slightly confused, but yes I was using the cords you showed.

Thank you for trying to help me on this issue....hopefully we can get it solved.



As an after thought, my neighbor has an xbox 360, I thought about trying that (plugging it into the components, and setting it to 720/1080) and see if its green also.

Default hdmi cables

hdmi cables these days are pretty cheap, you can get a decent hdmi cable from a reputable place called www.monoprice.com.

I bought a set of these cables from monoprice for my ps3 for $10 shipped.

I understand that...but I want to make sure my TV is not defective...

Should I take it back to best buy? I only got it a week ago....

What if I went out and bought a HD player and hooked it up to component just to "test" my TV? I'd hate to lug it all the way back if there isn't anything wrong with it. I want to know if it's my TV or his PS3 thats defective....

Yes take it back to the store and get another one before you can't take it back to BB. 14 days return it should say on the sales reciept.

Definitely try another "known good source" with settings at 720p or 1080i.

It appears that you have isolated the problem to either:
1) defective component output on the ps3
2) defective component input on the TV
3) defective cable

The simplest way to troubleshoot at this point is to try a "known good source" such as your friends xbox or an upscaling dvd player using component cables. If the problem does not occur, then the problem is almost certainly either the cable or the ps3.

Also, you can try your ps3 on another "known good" TV using the same cable. If the problem does not occur on another set, then it is almost certainly your TV.

Also make sure the red cable on the component cable is plugged in all the way, if that isn't in the picture will get a greenish tint. If is plugged in all the way, maybe that port is bad or something. Try another device like your neighbors 360, and if that has the same problem take your TV back.

Could be defective cables from SONY or a glitch in the system board. It would better for the OP to take it back to the store since they just go purchased it.

Right, without any certainty that the TV is bad, and the possibility that it could well be either the ps3 or the cable, let's disconnect the TV, pack it back up, drag it to the store and get a new set . . . which may very well exhibit the same exact issues.

Let's see . . . is that brilliant trouble shooting . . . or is that total INSANITY ? ? ?

This may be completely asinine, but make sure that you are in fact plugging the green and blue component cables into the correct inputs on the tv. The inputs can be deceivingly close in color, especially on the back of a tv where there isn't much light.

Okay so I did some more looking into this issue today. My friend went out and bought new component cables and we got the same result. (no big deal, he later returned them).

HOWEVER:

I noticed in the display options on the PS3 had the following:

HDMI
Component
S video
AV Multi Out / D link

We had the component option selected before, then inside that menu is when it turned green while testing the 720p/1080i. But I looked in the back of his PS3 and noticed that the cord was plugged into the "AV Multi Out" and the other end was the component cables which were plugged into my tv.

I went back into the previous menu, and unselected "component" and reselected "AV Multi Out" - within that there was a sub menu to select standard AV cables or Component cables. I clicked component cables, and inside that menu it ONLY let you select 480P as the max resolution to test. - It displayed in regular color - just like the other option did in 480.

I'm wondering though that since the cable hes using that goes from the AV Multi out on the PS3 to the component on my TV, if it's not allowing it to go any higher in resolution. We looked for an alternate port or plug for component cables but came up blank.

I have a HDMI cable on order from MonoPrice, so hopefully that'll make the difference. I found someone else who has a 720P TV on my floor too, so I can maybe try hooking it up to his TV to see if we get the same result.

Good testing skills.. But it's suppose to work with AV/Multi as I had show you above. There are firmware updates from Sony. But the only reason why I had suggested you return the item is because you're having problem with it and you just go it. If you connect the HDMI to the rear and you get the same result with green tint then you know it's something wrong with the graphics onboard.

Well let's see what happens..

Well you just drop this nutty behavior of yours... I guess you don't have much to do is just sit there and wonder what to say next. I've read most of your stuff here but why not try to help users instead worry what I say. Sounds like you need attention.

With Venting issue and this one.. One got to think is this guy serious or what? Well I guess it good entertainment here but there is a thread here for jokes. If you got a joke you need to type it in.. I am not much for joking aside...

Did you get award for being with the cable company for 25 years?

It is more and more looking like a ps3 issue, and not your TV; consider the following from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AV_Multi
Quote:
Video signal switch
Later due to the lack of Sync-on-green on the PlayStation 2 video game console/DVD player, peripherals makers like Madrics have added a "Game/DVD" switch to the AV Multi connector in order to allow correct display of DVD Video while using RGB signal with an AV Multi-SCART (21 pin) cable instead of getting a green colored screen (as on non-switch enabled cables). Switching to "Game" outputs RGB signal on games and a composite signal (CVBS) on DVD-Video playback and vice versa when switching to "DVD" mode.
So it seems that the green screen problem is not exactly something new.

Again, if I were you, I would certainly try to get my hands on a "known good" DVD player with component outputs to do a final confirmation that there is no issue with the TV.
