You will ned to send the console back for a repair, this is a common problem and I have had it too... its a problem with the mainboard and you dont get any red lights with this one.
If the console is less than 3 years old it will still be in warranty.
Dont waste your time buying another cable as I did the same and didnt make any difference.

Playstation 3 works fine useing the av hook up but won;t work with hdmi cable hook up.


First, make sure your TV is on the appropriate input for the plugged in HDMI cable. Once this is completed, turn your ps3 on. If the screen comes on and is black, turn the ps3 to standby (red light is on) and hold the front power button until the console beeps a second time. This will usually force the ps3 to recognize the hdmi input and will bring up the menu to configure the AV settings.

Hooked up hd cable to ps3 and tv, now have no sound


Be sure to check the cables. You may need to replace them.

Try the cables with another component, if possible.

Also, try using AV cables to verify that it is not the TV and to simply troubleshoot:

To get back to default AV settings:

Press and hold the power button until the systems shuts off. (wait 2 seconds)

Press and hold the power button again until it shuts off again.


Once you have verified that AV is working, turn off console, take out AV cables.


Plug in HDMI cable and turn system back on. Switch TV input to HDMI and it will ask you if you would like to use the HDMI cables, select yes again and verify.


If you cannot get sound, again, check the cables..


If new cables do not work, then your HDMI output is going bad, not from use rather normal wear and tear of the motherboard.


To get the best non HD picture, you will need to get some 'component' cables, rather than the standard AV (red, white, yellow).


Good luck

Hooked up ps3 using hmdi cable worked not working now using the


mpc heesman1 might be right...

However. I´m inclined to think that you did change the input on your TV. So your problem is another, this is what you have to to to reset:


1. Unplug the HDMI cable from both the TV and PS3.
2. Plug in the AV MULTI OUT cable (the red, white, yellow one provided along with the system) to both your PS3 and TV.
3. Set the TV input to the correct one and turn it on.
4. turn on the PS3 with the front button but DON´T release it, keep your finger on it, until you hear a second beep, thats when you release the button, the PS3 will start to identify what it´s connected to and will display it on your TV.

Hope it helps.

Av cable


Before plugging up any cables to your TV, look to make sure that you know the input number on the back of the tv if you have multiple inputs on your TV.

Make sure the video cable plugs into the video input on your tv, then the two audio cables, make sure they plug into the audio inputs on your tv and then make sure your tv is set to the right input and everything should be good, turn on the game system and enjoy.

Nintendo 64 HDTV


I am not an HDTV expert but I believe they are all backwards compatible so the fact it is HD should not be a problem. Have you tried a vcr or dvd player on the same hook ups? It is possible you are trying to use a video input that is already in use? I know on my TV I have the DVD hooked up with an S-video cable to "Video 2". Right next to the S-video hookup are the red, yellow, white RCA jacks. On my TV these can't be used when the S-video is in use so I have to have the games hooked up to the front panel "Video 3". I would disconnect everything and try hooking the N64 up in each input to see if you can find one that works.
