Hardware: Monitor (LG Flatron 20" L206WTQ ) (2008ish), DVI male to HDMI female adapter (monoprice), HDMI cable, PS3 (has the picture of the Green Hornet and Uncharted 3 so 2011ish)
Problem: I cannot get the PS3 to display onto the monitor. I have tried to hold power button. I know my ps3 works because I have used it on another monitor and tv (samsung/panasonic). The LG monitor is HDCP compliant. HDMI cable, monitor and adapter have been tested using computer.
I see alot of people fixing their problems by resetting the settings on the ps3 or having faulty equipment but no luck for me.
Johnman! I found a fix!!! As it turns out, our problem is the adapter itself. Not the type or brand, but the very fact that it is THERE seems to kill our connection.
Solution: Buy an HDMI to DVI >>Cable<< for your video, make sure you set the PS3 to 720p beforehand.
Use your component or composite cable with a red/white female to male 3.5 audio jack, and a 3.5 female to female for sound.
So are you saying the fact that I/we are using an adapter is the problem? I have tested the adapter using my computer and monitor and it works without fail, actually im using it right now because its less bulky than a dvi.
in any case, i bought a hdmi to dvi cable. Can you check for me if yours is dual or single link? not that I think it really matters.
