PS3 12GB Black Screen on PC Monitor

#1 Posted by ChoboBot (155 posts) -

Hi, I am trying to use my PS3 12GB on my PC monitor with a HDMI-to-HDMI connection. Now I have used this PS3 with the same PC monitor before but it doesn't seem to display anymore. I have done the reset procedure highlighted on the internet, checked the cable with the PS4 which works on my PC monitor and my PS3 seems to display fine on my TV.

Anyone have any suggestions?

Did you use the PS3 with another monitor and reset the resolution while doing so? I seem to remember that if you use your PS3 with let's say for example a 1080p TV and then take it straight to a 720p TV you won't get an image because the console is outputting at 1080p. You may need to change the resolution using an analog cable, or then go back to the last monitor you used and turn the resolution down.

Also I had no idea that there was a 12GB PS3 out there.

I'll try changing the resolutions, however I may switch from my TV to PC monitor which are both 1080p.
