Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

PS3 Sparks during hookup

Help!!!!! I cannot hook my PS3 to my Sony Grand Wega HDTV. First, I turned off the power strip that both my TV, PS3, Onkyo receiver and comcast cable box were plugged into. Then I attached the component cables to my tv then the ps3. Next I plugged the power cord into the back of the ps3. Then I plugged the ps3 into the power strip and it sparked like crazy and burned the heck out of the grounded plug!! so, tried going another way. I started over. The last thing I plugged in was the AV output on the backside of the ps3 and bam, spark again! This time it charred the gold plating on the av connector! I called sony and I'm waiting for a call back from a "Senior" Technicion. What the hell is going on? This is the second PS3 that this has happened? Basically, I cannot have the ps3 plugged into my tv and wall at the same time?

    I have the same issue. The first time the Playstation 3 just made noise. The PLaystation 3 wasn't on either. I just hooked up the cable and boom, sparks. Where would the cable be grounded at?

I own a Sony kdf-55e2000 , when I try to hook up a ps3 through the hdmi imputs i get a message reading "unsupported signal please check device output" i can here the sound but no picture.Is there any


try only having the hdmi cable hooked up to ps3 and tv, turn off ps3 and hold power button for 5 or 10 seconds and you should hear 3 beeps, this should reset the ps3 and detect the settings, if this doesnt work you mmay have to manually change audio and video settings in the ps3 settings menu to hdmi output and auto detect which settings work.

I plugged my external hard drive into my sony wega kdf55E200 using the usb port I have power to the external hard drive the light is on. But I cannot get a picture on my tv what can I do


Your TV is very unlikely to be able to read the external drive. The USB connection on most TVs are meant to view pictures and lack the ability to navigate file systems and read most file formats. Your best bet is hook the hard drive up to a computer or a video game system (PS3 and Xbox360 do this) and then hook that computer or game system to the TV.

If the television is plugged into a power strip or surge protector, remove it from the power strip or surge protector and plug it directly into the wall outlet. If the issue is resolved, the problem is with the power strip or surge protector and not the television.

Please make sure that the videos sources are connected properly to the TV.

Try Power Resetting the TV.

Please disconnect the power cord from the wall outlet (for approximately 1 minute), then reconnect the power cord and check whether the issue is resolved.

Also try connecting the TV to a different wall outlet and check if that helps.
