Check for an HDMI port
Check the back of your television for an HDMI port and refer to your owner's manual for your television's resolution. A resolution of 1080p offers the highest quality.
Disconnect all the cables and adapters from the back of your PS3, and then unplug your TV to reduce the risk of shock as you work.
Connect HDMI cable
Connect the HDMI cable. Reconnect the power cables on both the TV and the PS3 system.
Hold power button
Hold down the power button until the PS3 beeps and continue holding it for an additional five seconds until the system makes a second beep.
Test the connection
Test the connection. If the HDMI cable isn't working, turn everything off and reconnect the original cables to manually change the settings.
Adjust the settings
Turn the system back on, select Settings, Display Settings, Video Output Settings, and then HDMI. Repeat the process for your Audio Settings. You can now experience your games with the highest video and audio quality available.
