How To Adjust Brightness On Your PS3 Netflix Streaming Console

If you own a PlayStation 3 with a Netflix account, also a home network setup and broadband internet service you will be able to stream Netflix videos on your TV. In case you have a brightness/darkness levels issue of the Netflix videos that you stream to the PS3, you will solve it by adjusting some display and video settings. All the necessary adjustment may be made in the PS3’s XrossMediaBar. The difference between a DVD video playback and a Netflix video one is that the brightness of the second case is not adjustable on a PS3 through an on-screen control panel.

  • If using a HDMI Cable, start by navigating “Settings” option in the PS3’s XrossMediaBar, select “Display Settings” and then “RGB Full Range (HDMI)”.

  • In case if in your Netflix videos the black appears sometimes bright you must select the “Full” option and if it appears dull, select “Limited”.

  • To make sure that the problem was fixed, navigate to “Video” and then “Netflix” to play a video and that way to test the brightness level. Proceed only if the issue doesn’t persist. In order to return to the XrossMediaBar press the PS3’s button on the controller.

  • Once get there, navigate to “Settings” option, select “Video Settings”, then “BD/DVD Video Output Format (HDMI)” and finally, choose “RGB”.

  • After you have made all of that, test the brightness level by playing a Netflix video.

  • If using an AV Cable, open the PS3’s XrossMediaBar and navigate through “Settings”, select “Display Settings” and then “Deep Color/Colour”.

  • The next step will be to change the setting between “Automatic” and “Off”. You have to be aware of the fact that whichever is applicable.

  • Return then to the XrossMediaBar and navigate to “Video”, “Netflix” and test the brightness level of a video by playing it.

  • In case you are using an HDMI cable to connect the PS3 to the TV you will be able to adjust its “BD/DVD Video Output Format”, “Deep Color/ Colour” and it’s “RGB Full Range” settings.

  • On the other hand, if using an AV cable to connect the PS3 to the TV you will be able to adjust only the “Cross Color Reduction Filter” setting.

And that is all to it. Now you can watch movies and series at the full quality offered by the streaming service. Now, let’s see what’s new around here…
