Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

Ps3 won't display on hdtv via dvi

I have a sony xbr 40 inch hdtv crt with a dvi connection. I have direct Tv hooked  up via hdmi and it works fine. I hooked up  my PS3 via HDMI and it worked perfectly for several months until now. There is no picture from the PS, so I changed cables to no avail. I connected the DirectTV HDMI cable to the PS and that didn't work either. I even exchanged my ps3 for a new one and that didn't work. I changed the output settings in the ps menu (hdmi, conponent video and back again) and this didn't work. I downloaded updates of ps3 software. Nothing is working. Lastly, I watch my blurays on my ps hooked to my projector and this works with no problem. Is there something wrong with my TV? Why would my directTV hd work on the sony but not the ps? Thanks for the help. Max

Re-Set the PS-3, by pressing and holding down the power button (front panel) this hard re-sets the unit and yo can then reconfigure via the composite video cable it came with, back to HDMI / DVI

Got a PS3 hooked upto a Samsung 40" LCD TV via


I would suggest trying a different TV, and maybe see if you still have any Component or Standard Definition Composite cables to connect the PS3 to the TV and see if it works that way. I would assume you did this when you said you reset the resolution on your PS3, but turn it off, then hold in the power button until it beeps twice in a row. (Just in case) Make sure everything is plugged in twice and your TV is on the right input. If none of that works, there may be something wrong with the graphics adapters on your PS3 in which case you will need to contact Sony about fixing it.

I have a HDMI problem with my PS3. I have it


Try entering Recovery Mode and choose "Restore Default Settings".


If that doesn't help, you may have an HDMI port failure - which will require returning the unit to Sony or sending it to a third-party PS3 repair shop.

PS3 surround sound


You will need the optical cable. My receiver only passes video through the hdmi. So I hooked up the HDMI cable to the tv, and the optical cable to the receiver. Once that is done you have to go to the audio settings for the PS3 and chose audio through the optical.

Cascading white craziness


First thing you should try is using the regular old AV cables. That way we know if it's an hdmi problem or a video problem with the PS3. Hook them up, do the manual video reset ( hold down the power button until you hear a second beep, quickly release) and then post back here with the results.
