My ps3 won't display in HDMI

1. I'm new at this so i might have the settings wrong so it would definitely help to tell me how to set it up to play in HDMI first.
2. I know for a fact that the HDMI input to my TV works because I have my computer hooked up via HDMI.

Iam not able to get a picture from my hdmi cable, but can still here sound. tried three different hdmi cables... please can you help...


1. Your Connections Are Faulty

Quite often, the cause of the no picture problem is a simple one - loose cords. Make sure that the cords are plugged in tightly, both on the TV side and the PS3 side. This is especially true with the HDMI cable connection on the PS3. Often, it looks tight, but you still might need to wiggle it a bit more to seat it correctly. Along the same lines, make sure that the cords you are using are new and match the connections properly on both the TV and your console.

2. Wrong Connection Settings

If you are using the HDMI/DVI cables and you don't get any picture, make sure to check your video ouput settings. If your PS3 thinks you are using standard A/V cords to connect to the set, you'll have issues. The opposite is true too - if you are using the A/V cords and your PS3 thinks otherwise, you'll have the same no picture problem. Make sure you settings match the types of cable connectors you are using.

3. Wrong Resolution Setting


This is also an easy mistake to make that can result in no picture showing on your television screen. For example, if you've been using your PS3 with an HDTV and then try to hook it up to a standard definition television set, you'll encounter this issue. The cure is simple; just go into your settings and switch back to standard resolution and then restart your system. The 720p resolution is the default setting and this should work for most standard definition televisions.

The PS3 will not play via hdmi. I start it on the cables go to display settings and slect hdmi the screen goes blank for awhile and then goes back to av


Instead please try the following steps to solve your PS3 problem :
Step 1. Turn the PS3 off into standby (red light on)
Step 2. Press and hold the power button. It will beep as soon as you press it and then about 5 seconds later it will beep again. Let go of the power button when you hear this second beep.
Step 3. Wait for your PS3 to start.
This solution basically resets the video output back to standard definition.

No display on tv


It won't there is a setting on the PS3 that you have to tell it on the HDMI connection that you want to transfer back to A/V cables. If you don't do that and you have been playing with HDMI and then switch to A/V then it will still try to load using the 1080i settings instead of the 480i thus you will have a blank screen on the TV. Hope this helps.

Thanks,
Ced

My ps3 hdmi is not working. The ps3 plays on av settings but when i go to switch the display settings to hdmi nothing happens. I've tried everything holding the button down for 5 seconds until it beeps to...


Make sure you're running the latest firmware version. 2.76 right now.

If you are and you still have the problem then it's probably an issue with the PS3 itself.

Easiest way to confirm is taking your unit to a friends house and using his tv and his cables.

Hope this helps.

My ps3 will work on the rca hookups but not on the hdmi hookups


When you hooked up the HDMI did you go into display settings and change all the PS3 settings to HDMI instead of AVI? I thought my HDMI wasnt working, just a blank screen but I could hear the sound, then it hit me..... change the video and display settings to HDMI and poof, there was the pic. lol

PS3 - green Bar when playing blue ray on my 50" Phillips Plasma


Green bar or border is due to wrong AV Setting. To resolve this just insert the Blue-Ray DVD and begin to play. Press the Triangle button and select "AV Setting", in AV Setting change Video Output to RGB.

Samsung LCD tv and PS3


the problem is with the frames per second that the ps3 is putting out. i wound up calling both samsung and sony and the problem was in the settings. the ps3 allows you the option of playing in 24hz and for some reason if the option isn't turned off our tvs won't display frames at that rate. just go to the dvd settings and deselect the 24hz option, changing it from AUTO to OFF... the only problem i have with this is that this should effect the picture quality, becasue if it isn't displaying in 24hz that means it is downscaling the display and if it isn't upscaled by the tv's processor, then the display should be worse. i might be imagining it, but it does seem worse.. atleast they play now though. hope i helped.
