PS3 dvi adapter Problems

Last response: in Video Games

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.

did you happen to find the solution?
I wonder if using a hdmi male to dvi female converter on the ps3 side and then using the dvi cable would change anything...

sigh i want to play my ps3!!!!!

Best solution

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.

Let me know if it works for you as well! :D

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.

also do you have the same monitor as I?

congratulations :D  so jelly~
