Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

Ps3a i have bought an hdmi to dvi cable to connect my ps3 to my tv. My tv is a 42" plasma(relisys) and although moble was only realised in 2006 it does not have an hdmi connection. So i had to get dvi-hdmi cable. When i have connected it i got a great picture however no sound. I have spoke to playstation who advised me to get an optical digital cable. They said dvi will support pictures not sound. i can't seem to find a space in the back of my tv to fit this and the connection on the back of the playstation has plastic on it.

I have had this problem once before and it was because my sound output was was set to the (yellow white red) and so what you have to do is go to Sound Settings then go to Audio Output Settings then what your going to choose is HDMI then it will ask for what method and just select Automatic, then you should be able to here sound threw your tv.

    I just came up with the best idea, Ok so you could plug in the regular ps3 cable (yellow white red) and also leave the HDMI cable in as well, and just change your audio output to the ps3 cable, and just have both pluged in, my guess is that this should for sure. :)

Ressetig the ps3 on a new tv


Sounds like the Tv your using is faulty. Its could have hardware failure. You did say it PS3 was working on hdmi on a plasma. If your using the default hdmi cable that came with ps3 that also can be faulty. I have always had problems with the default hdmi so i bought a new one that was not SONY and it works beautifully. Another thing the black screen with green is a video cable or graphics issue.

Does this tv work if there is no ps3 connected? if so i recommend using the standard PS3 Component AV Cable. see if that will let you reset your ps3.

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

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.

PS3 to Infocus LP 350 projector using HDMI


Hi,

M1-DA is a type of DVI connection that produces both analogue and digital signals, the easiest and most quality source cable for you to get is a HDMI to M1-DA cable which is now widely available for purchase.

Infocus should have included this cable in with your projector, but instead the power at bee decided to put a M1-DA to DVI-D cable instead when most visual devices now support HDMI and not DVI nowadays.

Thanks

PS3 not working on 42'' JVC via HDMI cable port


I have the PS3 and this TV and it works....Try this.

1. Turn ON TV
2. Connect HDMI from TV to PS3
3. Select the correct HDMI input on the TV for the PS3(important)
4.Turn OFF PS3 if it is ON.
5. hold [I/O] Power button on PS3
6. Wait about 5 second and you should get the "HDMI Detected" or some similar message.
7. Configure the HDMI output for the PS3

Also, If you set the PS3 to "auto" for hdmi, it may set the resolution to 1080i. You may want to deselect everthing but the 1080P.

PS3 hdmi connection


With your PS3 on standby (red light) hold the on/off button down until it goes green and then back to red. This restores your PS3 to "factory settings", i.e. it is waiting for you to tell it how you want it to connect to your TV. Now disconnect any HDMI cables you may be trying to use and connect your PS3 to your TV via a scart connection. Now switch your PS3 on and turn to your AV channel and you should have both sound and pictures.

Ps3 hook up


Yes, you can! But not straight out of the box. You need to purchase a DVI to HDMI cable adapter. It will convert it so your tv can use it. Here is a link to some:

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?

Hdmi to dvi


a DVI Connection does not transmit sound, so you will need a seperate audio cable. Have you changed the settings in the ps3 and your tv's input to HD signal or 720 DPI, do not choose 1080i or 1080P as DVI does not support those high settings.
