Turn on ps3 i get no picture or sound then i cant turn it off i have to unplug it whats wrong with it?


  • Check your HDMI Cable

    HDMI is available in several versions. The PS3 is compatible with HDMI version 1.3 or higher, which will take full advantage of Blu-ray Disc™ high-definition video. There are also "Type A" and "Type B" connectors. The PS3 uses the 19-pin Type A connector, which will allow resolutions up to 1080p.
    The HDMI cable is not included with the PS3.

  • Cable adaptors (i.e., HDMI to DVI converters)

    If you are using an adaptor (i.e., HDMI to DVI converter), try bypassing this adaptor and connecting the HDMI cable directly into the display.


  • Check the adaptorTry an alternate cable

  • Try connecting with the supplied AV Cable instead of the HDMI to see if you can get a successful installation. This will help determine where the problem may be with your particular HDMI setup and/or equipment.


  • Some older HDTVs may have issues with the copy protection protocols (HDCP) causing the handshake not being communicated between the TV and the PS3. Try resetting the TV by turning the TV and PS3 off, then unplug the TV power cord from the outlet and plug it back in. Then turn your TV and PS3 back on and see if the picture appears.

  • Try using a different the HDMI Cable on the PS3.Make sure the HDMI Cable is free of any cuts, frays or other visible damage.
  • Try installing the PS3 to another TV or display (i.e., monitor).
  • Try using the HDMI Cable with a different PS3 system.

I have a Playstation 3/blu ray player and I don't know how to get hi def video on a samsung hln467w


Your TV only has a DVI input, not an HDMI which PS3 has as an output. You can buy a HDMI to DVI adapter and connect the HDMI out of the PS3 to the DVI input of the TV. To get the true HighDef video you need a HDMI input on the TV to enjoy the full capacity of the Blu ray capabilities of the PS3. DVI came out before the HDMI standard and your picture will look good but not like HDMI. I have the same problem with my samsung 65 inch. I Bought the wrong technology. I hope this helps and good luck!

HDMI has been taken over by 'DVI' after pluging in P.C


does selecting DVI, operates the HDMI mode?
I would recheck all my connections just in case, try new batteries on the remote, try operating the TV via the controls on the panel itself.

If none of this works, would suggest calling in the TV's customer care.

I have a phillips 26pf5520d/10 model number, ive connected a dvi cable and hdmi cable to my playstation 3 and tv, but i have no sound, please any ideas. many thanks steph


I'm assuming you mean you have HDMI coming out of the PS3 and going in to the DVI port on the back of the TV, via an adaptor or cable with a different connector on either end.
I have the same TV, you need a separate audio connection between ps3 and tv. HDMI can transmit audio and video but DVI (which is what the TV has) can only do video.
You'll need a 2 x phono female to 3.5mm jack male adaptor cable. like this one to make the audio connection.
you could also try this adaptor but its a bit big and therefore may not fit into the space available.
after getting an adaptor do this (keep your original setup the same)
1. Put the ps3 AV cable into the back of the ps3. 2. then connect the red and white plugs (ignore the yellow) from the ps3 AV into the adaptor (discussed above). 3. then connect the 3.5mm jack (from the adaptor) into the small audio port right next to the DVI port on the back of the TV (I believe its called 'DVI Audio')
I've not tried this and I don't have a ps3, yet, but in theory it should work, as long as the ps3 will send audio to the av output at the same time as to the hdmi output.
if it works, then post a response, i'd like to know for the future.
good luck

All picture and no sound


Rick:
simply unplug--then replug--your HDMI cable. Or also go into the audio setup menu and reapply the "automatic" setting for HDMI to get the sound to work. I don't know if Sony can do anything about this or not in a firmware upgrade, but what it can do is try to simplify the labeling on some of the sound settings.
Let me know

Hi,
Silly question, but have you gone into the setup for the AUDIO and chosen the correct signal connection i.e. Audio via HDMI, AV or something else?

if you have no optional external speaker on the ps3 you may have an earphone socket which can be connected to your tv's pc sound input via a 3.5mm or 6.5mm jack plugs.
