How to Fix “1440p Not Supported” on PS5

On July 28, 2022, PS5 Beta released 1440p support for monitors.

The PS5 system software beta also includes game lists and additional updates.

Beta access is limited to invited participants in certain countries.

As of September 7, 2022, PlayStation released the update globally.

The 1440p HDMI video output is now available to everyone.

In addition, you can compare 3D audio and stereo audio on the same screen.

However, many users are experiencing issues with the 1440p output.

In this guide, you’ll learn why is 1440p not supported on PS5 and how to fix it.

Why is 1440p not supported on PS5?

1440p Not Supported on PS5

1440p video output is not supported on PS5 because your monitor does not support it.

The output requires either a TV or a PC monitor that supports 1440p/60Hz or 1440p/60Hz and 120Hz.

In addition, the results may vary depending on the game being played.

If your monitor does not support 1440p, you cannot switch to 1440p.

Do note that VRR on PS5 does not support 1440p but it supports 1080p and 4K video output.

How to fix “1440p Not Supported” on PS5

Switching your HDMI ports is the first method to fix the “1440p not supported” issue on PS5.

Basically, you need to switch the HDMI port(s) to your monitor and test if the issue is fixed.

If you’ve tried switching your HDMI ports in every possible location but it still doesn’t fix the issue, it probably means that your monitor doesn’t support 1440p.

If that’s the case, you need to either use a monitor that has 1440p support or buy one.

In some cases, you might encounter the issue even though your monitor supports it.

If so, you need to contact PlayStation support for assistance.
