    I have a similar problem, except whenever I hook up anything via HDMI cable to my TV, the resulting image (although VERY clear) has a decidedly orange-ish hue. I've used different HDMI cables, as well as at least three sources (Xbox, PS3, laptop) with the same result.

    My 42 philips turns green sometimes. i noticed when it does this its always when I turn the set on and there is no clicking sound prior to the picture coming on. When it works properly there is a pause and clicking before the display comes on. right now no matter what I do its green. If I chose another input it is fine, only HDMI is affected.

I had the same problem.... Occasionally when I changed stations, the screen went totally green.
What fixed the problem was to NOT use a HDMI cord at all! Instead I got a cord made up of five separate "prong" cords (like we use to hook up the old VCR's with ), all with different color-coded prongs that individually get inserted into the corresponding colored holes in the back of the Cable box and into the TV. I got this special cord from my cable company Comcast.

How do I install my monitor?


Plug up the power cord to the monitor. Plug up the video cable to the monitor. If your monitor has speakers, and you want to use them, then plug in the audio jack. You don't need to do this is your video cable is HDMI, since sound is carried on the HDMI cable. DVI and VGA video cables will not carry the audio signal. Take the audio and video cables and attach them to the PC. The audio jack goes into the green plug-in. Turn on the monitor. Turn on the computer. The computer will automatically find the monitor.

My coby lcd tv won't work for my ps3 what wires would I need to make it work


You will need an HDMI cable. Please follow the below instructions.

Instructions

  1. Before you begin installation:
    • Turn OFF the PS3TM system using the [MAIN POWER] switch (in the back)
    • Unplug the AC power cord from the electrical outlet
    • Turn OFF and unplug the TV
  2. Connect one end of the HDMI cable into the [HDMI OUT] port on the back of the PS3 system. Connect the other end of the HDMI cable into the [HDMI Input] port of the TV or display monitor. ps3_8_hdmiconnecttv.gif
  3. Plug in the AC power cord by connecting one end of the AC power cord into the [AC IN] port on the back of the PS3 system and the other end into an electrical outlet. ps3_11_connectacpower.gif
  4. Press the [MAIN POWER] switch on the rear of the system. A red light should appear on the front of the system indicating power is available.
  5. Turn on the PS3 by pressing the touch-sensitive [On/Off button] on the system front. The red light will turn green, indicating the PS3 is now turned on.
    Note: The blue light will also appear on the front of the system if you have a disc inserted.
  6. Plug in the TV and turn the power on. The PS3 should detect the HDMI display device automatically. When prompted, "Do you want to output video and audio using HDMI?", select YES and press the icn_btnx_color.gifbutton. (You may need to press the PS button on the center of the SIXAXISTM controller to enable the controller first).
  7. The next screen will ask, "Do you want to automatically switch to the optimal setting?" Select YES and press the icn_btnx_color.gifbutton.
  8. On the next screen, the PS3 will display the maximum resolution capable on the display (i.e., 1080p). The screen will display, "Do you accept the setting?" You will have 30 seconds to confirm your answer.2 Select YES and press the icn_btnx_color.gifbutton to save your settings. You have now completed the HDMI installation.

When turned on, screen goes black, but power light stays green


It sounds that the main digital board to this TV is faulty. Contact any service technician.

When i start up my ps3, it goes directly to a pink screen wit greenish streaks across it. Any idea to fix it ?


Did you hook it with HDMI or analog? My plasma was on the fritz but when i hooked it up analog it worked..ugly though compared to 1080P. Try a different HDMI cord as well

The 1525has a a hdmi port which you can plug a hdmi cord into. This may not support the audio. the tv and pc should detect the new monitor automatically or you may have to toggle it by hitting F4 key.

I just want to know how to hook up a hdmi cord to an old big screen hitachi tv


You can't, at least not directly. Older sets don't have any HDMI inputs, only composite video (the yellow RCA jack) and possibly component video (red, green and blue RCA jacks). Converters that take an HDMI input and generate the necessary video outputs are available, but they aren't cheap. And don't fall for the adapter cables you might find advertised with an HDMI plug on one end and RCA plugs on the other that supposedly convert the signal for you. HDMI can only be converted with some active electronics; a simple cable just won't work. If you want to hook and HDMI-only device to your old Hitachi, you'll need the converter.

The picture on my t.v when i turn on my ps3 goes black and white with a section of it at the top gone a fuzzy green colour. how do i get rid of this and put colour back on the screen


First of all hold down the power button for 5-10 seconds. YOu should hear a couple of beeps. That is resetting the video to the ps3. Power it back up. If you have it hooked up through hdmi try the other av cordes it came with. ALso try unpluging and plugging back in the av cords. If that does not work then I dont know.

Hdmi doesn't work


Make sure everything is pluged in correctly and the Playstation 3 is on stand-by. The using the power button on the console hold it for about 5 seconds till you hear two beeps. And this will reset the display settings.

Don't hold it to long or it will go on stand-by.

Also try reversing the ends of the HDMI

Hook it up to the tv


If your hooking it directly to the tv depending on how old the tv is use one of the inputs. Hook the two red and white to red and white and the yellow to the video in input. If it's an older tv you will need whats called an rhf adapter. Hook your color codes together and use a cable cord to go from the antenna out to the tv's uhf input. I hope this information was helpful........... : )
