PS3 dvi adapter Problems

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.

  4. 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!!!!!

    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
  6. 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~
