PS3 Screen cut off (on right) only when using HDMI cable? HELP!

3 replies 598 views Edited Jul 28, 2007
Greetings everyone,

I dont have many posts but i am looking for some help.  I just downloaded tekken 5 and noticed something that i been overlooking for a long time (since i got my hdtv in january)!  Once i ran the tekken 5 game, during my first fight i had noticed the fighter on  the right's Health HUD and name was cut off.  I tried to mess with the settings, changing the resolution from 1080i to 720p so on and so forth, but i still have not had any luck getting the full screen with hdmi! 

I have determined that the image is just not cented on screen.  None of the logo's are perfectly center, all are about 2-3 inches to the right from the center of screen.

 e.g. when i press the Playstation button, where 'shutdown controller/shutdown system' appears,  this should be centered but is not! it is about 2 inches to the right from center.  If one wasnt looking for it, one would not even notice.  But now that i had noticed everything always seems off center. 

Although, when i plug in my ps3 using rca cables, it is perfectly centered.  i am using a 37 inch magnovox lcd tv. 480p/720p/1080i.  The hdmi cable i am using is the 60$ sony ps3 branded hdmi cable.  I have the latest firmware 1.90. 

Just to clearify,  the image fulls my tv screen (not a black space).  I just dont get all of the picture when using a HDMI cable. i would say i am seeing 90% of the picture, the 10% missing is the right side i cant see.  Any help would be great.  thanks!

p.s.  would the playstation gods please let me in home =)

What kind of TV do you have?  You may need to enter the factory options/settings on the TV and you can adjust the image that way.  However, be warned!  There are many options to select from and you can really mess up your TV if you change the wrong setting or too many settings.
