I have just bought a PS3 and wanted a HDMI connection so i bought a cable. My TV (Bush make) although only 18 months old does not have a HDMI port so i had to buy an adaptor for the DVI socket. Great...so far. I connected the HDMI cable, the PS3 displayed a message saying it detected a HDMI device and did i want to use it so i said yes.
On starting up though i have a picture but no sound, i played around with the AV cables supplied and the sockets on the back of the telly but to no avail. So i decided to go back to the scart connection. Only now i get sound but no picture!
So i have...picture but no sound through the DVI/HDMI cable...or sound but no picture on the scart connection. I'm really confused and my husband is going to explode if i can't fix it. I looked at buying an 'optical digital cable', but there is no where to put the end on my TV.
I just want to get my scart picture and sound back. Please can you help??
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.

You will need 2 hdmi cables the ps3 a tv with an hdmi port and a audio receiver with hdmi in and out. 1:>First connect the ps3 to the tv with the A/V cables. 2:>Turn the system on and the tv on, get to the ps3 dashboard. 3:>Under the settings tab select (display settings) 4:>Select (video output settings) 5:>Do not disconnect the A/V. 6:>Connect the hdmi cable to the ps3 and tv. 7:>Then select hdmi and select change, this gives you 30 seconds to switch the tv over to the hdmi channel. Once done and you get a signal select (yes). 8:>Disconnect the A/V cable. 9:>Select what inut your tv will support 720i, 720p, 1080i, 1080p. You can select more than one and even all if it is supported by your tv. 10:>Then select hdmi for your audio output, but since your ps3 is connected to the tv only select linear PCM 2channel. Check for sound on the tv's speakers. If check is good then proceed. 11:>Power down the tv and ps3, disconnect the hdmi cable. 12:>Connect the hdmi cable from the ps3 to the input of the audio receiver and the hdmi from the tv to the output on the receiver. 13:>Turn the ps3 on, the receiver on and the tv on. Make sure the receiver is on the right channel. If it is you will see the ps3 come on the tv, and have sound on the main speakers of the receiver and tv. 14:>At this step you should be able to see and here the ps3's dashboard. Now to setup surround. 15:>Scroll to the settings tab and select (sound settings). 16:>Select (audio output settings) 17:>Select (hdmi) 18:>Select (automatic) this will select the basic surround settings that all receivers have. 19:>Hit enter and exit. 20:>From here test the surround with a game or movie.

the system to off/standby, where only the red light is on. 2:>Then

If it was doing it on your old console then its the TV not the PS3.
Causes: HDMI cable (Replace cable), HDMI socket on TV (Get it repaired), If it happens on all HDMI inputs then the video board maybe faulty, Interference - location of PS3 to other equipment.
The first thing to do is move everything else away from your TV except for the PS3, now factory reset the Samsung TV and make sure your firmware is up to date my records show that an update came out in May for your TV, also factory reset the PS3 and setup the HDMI video settings using the wizrad in the PS3, now connect the PS3 through all HDMI inputs to see if its one input or all, if all inputs are the same then the TV maybe faulty.
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.
you need a HDMI connection for your stereo. HDMI is an all in one cable so if you don't get your sound in/out you need to hook up to just the RCA's, if you get a reciver that has an HDMI input you will solve this. then you go HDMI to Reciver then HDMI to TV
