Playstation 4 to monitor using hdmi to dvi converter

I'm having problems connecting my playstation 4 to my computer monitor. I'm using and hdmi cable with a dvi adapter. I used this same hook up with my playstation 3 all the timre but with the playstation 4 I'm running into problems

With the playstation 3 I would hold the power button to reset the graphics to work with the adaptar but when I do this for the playstation 4 my monitor flashea twice a minute and shows static. If I just turn my playstation 4 the monitor flashes andsays "Input signal out of range change settings to 1600 x 900 - 60hz".

I don't care about sound I just want the system to work on my monitor

  1. By the sounds of it, your PS4 is trying to put the video out at a higher resolution than the monitor can handle. It must not be detecting it right and trying to put out a 1080p resolution probably. If you can plug it to a TV first and see if you have an option to adjust the resolution. Its not a typical setting on game consoles, but with how far they have come I wouldn't be surprised.
  2. I was worried that was the case. I wobt be able to try that for about 4.5 hours. In currently at work that's where I use the monitor at. I have a 50" Samsung at home that I connect to
  3. Hi isollator13 I'm also having that same problem there are some converters out there on amazon and I just got one it didn't work wrong one but if you find away please share I will also you can email me at
  4. any solution to this i just got my ps4 and my montor is kinda old

    i know the hdmi-dvi cable is working because when i traded in my ps3 a week ago it was working fine

    ive tried plugging into a tv and reducing the resolution to 720 manually(my monitor can only output 720 anyway) but that didnt work and i set the other two display options to limited on the 2nd try and still nothing

    i get a message saying "input not supported" on my monitor

    the signal is getting to it though as it powers up when i switch on the ps4 so its definitely getting a signal

    my monitor is an acer p223w

  6. Well done RazrKey. Not sure where you found this out at, but I'm sure that this will be helpful to know for many people getting the PS4.
  7. I'm having a problem with my Acer P201W monitor and PS4 setup. I use an adapter to change the HDMI to DVI but the screen in off centered. The open screen adjust of my PS4 and monitor do not fix the problem. I can see the screen, its just that a half-inch of the right side is missing from the whole display, How do I fix this? (Also the Razerkey fix didn't help)
