When you click on the game icon to play, Is this what you get?

When you click on the game icon to play, Is this what you get?

You bought a game such as Timeshift or Gran Turismo 5 for your PS3. You try to start the game, it takes you to your home menu, and when you try to start the game, it tells you, you have a video output error followed by the number 80028f10. You probably are playing your your game with a regular PS3 with the normal wires it came with, hooked up to a regular tv. The video game you bought for your console requires a higher definition tv to play it on.You can spend big bucks and buy a brand new HDTV and HDMI wires to fix this problem or you can use a temporary cost free solution.

I had an american 60gb PS3 hooked up to a regular non HDTV. I had the ac plug plugged for power and for the video the regular yellow red and white plugs from the PS3 to the TV. If this setup sounds like yours try this solution.

1. go to settings

2. go to display settings

3. go to video display output (the first option)

4. choose your connector type (composite/ S-Video)

5. then change your tv type from a 4:3 resolution to 16:9 resolution

This solution worked just fine for me. comment for me and let me know how this solution works for you. Then when you play a game that does not give you such a problem just change it back to the 4:3 resolution.

argghh on November 24, 2011:

I have just bought a HDTV for blueray and thought soddit I might as well, see if it will work. It still does not work though the TV will not go to waste as the screen is lovelyy xx

How can I make this work????

argghh on November 23, 2011:

I have a 60GB Japanese import. I have just bought Silent Hill 1 off the PSN Store and want to play it. Again I am getting this error.

I do not have a HDTV. Instead I have an old box TV that supposedly supports 720p as I have played many PS3 games on it that require 720p.

On my setting for resolutions that are supported by my TV it has two: NTSC Standard (which has been ticked automatically and greyed out) and 480p. When I check 480p my TV goes blank and does not support it???

However I have no problem with playing PS1 DISCS on my old PS2. WTF??

I have also had problems with playing Siren Blood Curse. I do not want to buy a new monitor as I am renting a room and do not want to take a big moniter with me when I go lol.

i jus don't know what the problem with this 2010 cricket game why is not working,i waiting so long for this game and now this is a problem.

Yay on March 05, 2011:

Worked for me too!

If you're using Multiman, after making the changes try booting the game without exiting to XMB. Seemed to help with my first launch of it.

dannycarrey on February 20, 2011:

hi there!

One more tip for guys who bought ps one games (like me) - you need to change resolution to 576p.

1. Go to settings

2. Display settings

3. Choose your connector type (mostly HDMI)

4. Select a setting method - CUSTOM

5. Uncheck 1080p, 1080i, 720p

Save everything and you should be ready to play ps one games

titch 85 on February 05, 2011:

no didn't work brother was really excited :(

Kevin L. on September 29, 2010:

Yea! This worked great, I thought it was something wrong with the PS3 itself. Given that I had just had it refurbished. Thanks for the help!!
