HDMI Cable - Mode not supported...

Hi,

I was using a cheap HDMI cable with my PS3. I decided to change it because the connection was really loose.

Plugged the new one in and I get 'mode not supported' on screen? Tried the old cable and it works fine.

Any ideas? Is it a faulty cable? Thanks.

Maybe your new cable is 1.4 and your old cable is 1.3. I'm guessing your switch is 1.3 also. This will mean an incomplete sync signal.

A HDMI cable either works or doesn't (i.e. it will display an image or won't), so yes the cable is most likely faulty. HTH.

Solution
Hook up your PS3 to your TV with the HDMI cable. Now, when you turn on your PS3:
Hold the power button on the PS3 for 5 seconds.
It will reset the PS3 video options and recognize the HDMI connection.
It will then search for the correct resolution settings on the TV.
Press ( X ) to confirm. And that's it.

This is not my solution its from Google.

Hmm, I am using a Duronic HDMI Switch so the HDMI cable goes from the PS3 into the switch.

When using this cable via the switch, I get the 'resolution not supported' message, but when I use the cable without the switch, it works fine.

The cheap hdmi cable works fine with the switch so I'm confused?

could be the 'depth' of the cable...... some don't work well unless pushed fully home ;)

No luck, I don't get this at all....

HDTV > New Cable > PS3 = Works Perfect
HDTV > New Cable > Duronic HDMI Switch > PS3 = 'Mode/Resolution Not Supported'
HDTV > Any cable I have > Duronic HDMI Switch > PS3 = 'Mode/Resolution Not Supported'
HDTV > Cheap flimsy cable which works > Duronic HDMI Switch > PS3 = Works Perfect

What's interesting, is that with all the above methods, I reset the PS3 resolution settings and it works when I select all resolutions apart from 1080p, so 1080p is causing the above issues.

But then with the cheap flimsy cable I have, 1080p works... why won't any other HDMI cable work? I need to change the flimsy cable as the connector keeps falling out of the connection on the PS3 as it's so cheap and rubbish, but then it's the only one that works, and I'm not determined out of curiosity to find out why this is happening.

I just don't see where the problem lies in the above.

Just did a test on the PS4 this time -

HDTV > New Cable > PS4 = Works Perfect
HDTV > New Cable > Duronic HDMI Switch > PS4 = Screen flickers badly and then eventually goes black.
HDTV > Any cable I have > Duronic HDMI Switch > PS4 = Screen flickers badly and then eventually goes black.
HDTV > Any cable I have > Duronic HDMI Switch > PS4 via all resolutions apart from 1080p = All ok
HDTV > Cable that came with my PS4 > Duronic HDMI Switch > PS4 = Works Perfect
HDTV > Cheap cable whcih works ok with PS3 > Duronic HDMI Switch > PS4 = Screen flickers badly and then eventually goes black.

So again, 1080p output won't work with any cable apart from the cable that came with my PS4, so is this a switch problem or a cable problem? I'd say it was the switch, but then the PS4 cable works ok via 1080p output. Even the working cable for the PS3 doesn't work with the PS4!

CONFUSED!

New branded cables resolved this. Amazon Basic ones.
