Changing the display size of a Web page

Web pages may be displayed too small or too big depending on the combination of the video output setting of the PS3™ system and the TV that is connected. If this is the case, you can use the following method to adjust the display size.

Using the zooming feature

Automatically enlarge the area on the screen where the pointer is located to optimal size. The optimum enlargement ratio is automatically calculated for the area where the pointer is located. Place the pointer on the area that you want to zoom in on, press the triangle button, and then select [Zoom] under (View) in the options menu.

Example of zooming in on text

The system calculates the enlargement ratio based on the size of the paragraph of the text in the area where the pointer is located and then displays the text in zoom mode.


Example of zooming in on an image

The system calculates the enlargement ratio based on the size of the image in the area where the pointer is located and then displays the image in zoom mode.

Changing the resolution

Change the screen resolution of a Web page. You can adjust the Web page display to an easy-to-view size to match the video output resolution of the PS3™ system. Press the triangle button, and then select [Resolution] under (Tools) in the options menu.


If [-1] or [-2] is set when the video output resolution of the PS3™ system is set to 1080p or 1080i, the display is enlarged and is easier to view. If [+1] or [+2] is set when the video output resolution of the PS3™ system is set to Standard (NTSC: 480i / PAL: 576i) or 480p / 576p, the display is reduced and is easier to view.

Example when the video output resolution of the PS3™ system is set to [1080i] and [Resolution] is set to [-2]


Example when the video output resolution of the PS3™ system is set to [Standard (NTSC: 480i / PAL: 576i)] and [Resolution] is set to [+2]
