I just figured it out last night - if you have used your playstation on an hd tv previously, it is set at the highest resolution possible - 1080p. You need to take it back to that tv, and go to display settings on your tv. If you select HDMI as they type of connection you'd like to make, it asks you what resolution your tv supports. In your tv instruction guide, it should give you this information. Check mark all of the resolutions your tv supports, making sure not to confuse 1080i and 1080p. After doing this you can take it back to your other television and it should work.

How do I get my PS3 to work over hdmi?


Try swapping out HDMI cable. The version of cable. (1.2, 1.4 etc ) might be too old/faulty for PS3.

If your Tv is HD ready and not Full HD lower the video quality in the PS3 settings

Connecting Ps3 with philips tv (full hd) when i got hd cable in, and click to switch so the ps3 uses hd to show things and i than switch over to the channel i plugin the hdmi cabel it gives blac kscreen


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.

For some reason we cannot connect our playstation 3 to this television using the hdmi cable.


Connect the HDMI cable to the playstation 3 and LG TV.
Press the input button on your LG remote until you see the new HDMI connection.
If there is no picture, Hold the power button on your PS3 until you see lights flahing on the console, this will reset the playstation to default., as it may be set for a RCA signal, thus no pictue through HDMI.

hi
there maybe some problem with ur tvs resolution. ps3 outputs full hd high resolution video(1080p) through its hdmi. may be your tv is not supporting that resolution. connect ps3's component video out to ur tv and then try. if it ask for any resolution selection. select 720p or 1080i, above that resolution ur tv will not support. ur tv is hd ready one, not full hd. ps3 's hdmi out is full hd (1080p).
or try this
connect ur ps3 to any full hd tv and then goto video setup of ur ps3. change resolution to 1080i (down scaling ). then connect to ur tv via hdmi. surly u will get the video.
ok

Does the Sylvania 22 HDTV require a special cable when connecting to my cable service. I do not have HD cable service.


Not necessarily. You can use the normal connecting cable but you may not get HDTV picture. Better is to connect through HDMI cable where you can view HD pitures on the channels transmitting HD programmes

PLaystation 3 won't link up via HDMI cable


You might want to try a factory reset on your PS3 = turn it off then hold down the power button for 5 seconds it should then Beep.

there is a small memory in the PS3 that stores info about the tv that is was Initially setup on. IF you do this reset this should allow you to connect it to your Acoustic Solutions tv via the hdmi cable.
Another Tip i would do is connect it all up with it turned off then power up your appliances once its all connected.

Hope this sorts it out for you
