Question about Sony BRAVIA KDL-V40XBR1 40 in. LCD HDTV
I tried the suggestion to reset of the ps by turning off the power and waiting for it to beep 3 times - it didn't work. The component video won't work either. 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 Dvi/HDMI and it worked perfectly for 6 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
