If it's the first time using your PS3, use the composite cables that came with it. Turn on the PS3 go to video settings and switch the input to HDMI. After you've switched to HDMI, turn the PS3 off and connect your HDMI cable, go back to video settings and change the resolution to 1080p. If this isn't the first time you've used HDMI for your PS3, make sure your T.V. is on the correct input. If the T.V. is on the correct input, try switching the HDMI cable to a different input. If that doesn't work try using a different HDMI cable, testing different HDMI connections if you're still getting the black screen. If none of those work then it's probably a problem with the PS3, but just to make sure try plugging something else with HDMI to see if that works. If another HDMI device works, then it's your PS3, if it doesn't then it could be a problem with your HDMI connections on the T.V.
If you just bought the PS3 use your composite cables that came with the system. Turn the PS3 on and go to the video settings, set up video input to HDMI. After you've done that plug your HDMI back into your PS3 and try turning it on. If that works go back to video settings and change the resolution to 1080p. If that doesn't work make sure your T.V. is on the same input that the HDMI cable is plugged in. If it is and still doesn't work try switching to a different HDMI port. If switching to a different HDMI port doesn't work try a new HDMI cable. If the new HDMI cable doesn't work then there is a problem with the port on the PS3 which would require a repair.
I would suggest you check if your PS3 is set up on going through the HDMI Cable.On your PS3's XMB scroll to settings -> Display Settings -> ANd from there go down to the one that says "Y Pb/Cb Pr/Cr Super-White (HDMI)" and hit X and select the option Yes... That sets the PS3 displaying through the HDMI If you are already have done that I'm pretty sure you know you have to change the Input on your TV to HDMI... Take your remote and hit Input -> Scroll down to HDMI on the Input Source menu and hit Enter when you get to HDMI If the AV on your PS3 works and not your HDMI sounds like Display Settings issue... If you have done all that, that is strange if it still doesn't work. There are some people that are having problems with the AV Cable with the PS3, I tried this and it really does work. I switched from HDMI on one tv to a AV Cable on another and when I did that neither TV would display content from my tv. The fix for this is resetting your PS3, like on a iDevice you hold the home button and lock button, for the PS3 you hold the Power off button and the Eject button for around 10 seconds. This resets your PS3 into default video settings. Until it Turns on, Beeps, and Turns off. This should work.
If i remember correctly there is a setting in the PS3 to switch it to HDMI, plug it back in via Scart or howeve you had it connected and look in system settings then video output and set it to HDMI this i s defo a setting in ther PS3 as i have had it but sold mine now and cant check exactly where the setting is, just have a good look around you will find it.
Tries something else with a HMDI with the Phillip Tv.Like DVD player With HDMI see if it work with the TV.Narrow it down might have to use all the HMDIs inputs use.See if it all works.
Might just have one or two HMDIs shorted out put.
Step 5 - Change from the current video cables to HDMI. (Your tv has different inputs. When you switch to HDMI in the PS3, you will have to switch your TV to the HDMI input that it is connected to, to get a picture)
Step 6 - Be quick, the PS3 will display a "test" for 30 seconds. You need to switch your tv to the correct HDMI input and press "X" on your controller to accept the change.
You will most likely have to contact your LG dealer to fix this. The problem is due to the HDMI input not recognising the playstation, the cure for this is a software upgrade for External Device IDentification (EDID), which can only be done by a service centre.
The Toshiba 32AV500U cannot display 1080p. Hook up your PS3 to your computer monitor, provided that it can display 1080p, or some other TV that can, then change your Video Output settings under Settings> Display Settings and uncheck 1080p, which will allow the PS3 to display in 1080i. Once you do that, then hook up the Toshiba via HDMI and it will work with no problem.
