I am currently trying to hook up my playstation 3 to a 19 inch Asus monitor. The monitor is quite dated but it does support DVI and VGA. I have obtained HDMI-VGA cable and the monitor is failing to detect my playstation or is it the other way round? Can anyone advise me on the way forward?
Connecting Playstation 3 to a ASUS DVI monitor
If you are using the regular AV cable with red, yellow, and white, try to auto-detect your PS3 connection. The PlayStation 3 has an auto-detect feature that allows it to detect which connection is being used and it will set it as the default connection. To auto-detect, disconnect any cables connected to the monitor and then turn off both the monitor and your PS3.
While your PlayStation 3 is off, connect the HDMI cable to your monitor and to your PS3. Remember, only the HDMI cable should be connected. After that, turn on the monitor. Next, hold down the power button on your PlayStation 3 until you hear a second beep. When you hear the second beep, release the power button.
If auto-detect is successful, your PlayStation 3 should be set to the HDMI connection. In case auto-detect fails, the next option is to do the settings manually. To connect your PlayStation 3 to HDMI manually, connect both the HDMI cable and the AV cable [the cable with red, yellow, and white colors] to your monitor and to your PS3.
Turn on your monitor and your PlayStation 3. On your PS3, go to Settings, Display Settings, Video Output Settings, and then select HDMI. That is for the video. For the audio, go to Settings, Sound Settings, Audio Output Settings, and then select HDMI. If the manual setup still doesn’t work, you probably need to check your HDMI cable because one user who has this same problem fixed it by replacing his HDMI cable which turned out to be broken.
