    3d ps3, help please!

    hi,

    I just got this deal from PCworld ( SAMSUNG PS50C680 50" Full HD Plasma 3D TV at cheap prices | PC World ) on a SAMSUNG PS50C680 50" Full HD Plasma 3D TV but i cannot see how the 3D works with my PS3. the ps3 is completley updated and did detect that it was a 50" 3d TV but how do i turn it 3d on?

    all i can find is unhelpfull youtube videos showing it in 3D ( YouTube - COD MW2 3D vision )

    the TV came with 3 3D shutter lens glasses. should there be an emitter for these or is it built in? as far as i no the HDMI cable is type 1.4

    thanks for reading

    If it detects the 3D TV, it should ask you when starting the film/game if you want to activate 3d (As long as you have re-run the display test in system settings)

    I presumed as long as the title you are playing is 3D that it would enable or use the 3D features - might be worth while either

    1. Checking through the telly settings or if there is a button or way of manually forcing / over riding the 3D setting
    2. What type of glasses are they, do they require batteries or are they non powered ones ?
    3. As above ensure the title whether it be a game or movie supports 3D
    4. Check to see if there are any firmware updates you can apply to the telly - I know with the samsung I have you can download the firmware updater from the samsung website and use a USB memory device ( ext hdd or memory stick or whatever ) to update the firmware on the telly

    You said your PS3 firmware was up to date

    Can't think of ought else.
