Please try this procedure to connect the PS3 to TV..
The PS3 has a Blu-ray drive that can be
used not only for playing games but also for watching high-definition
movies. The best way to connect a PS3 to a high-definition viewing
device such as a video projector is through the PS3's high-definition
multimedia interface (HDMI) output. The HDMI connection can transmit up
to 1080p high-definition from the PS3 to the video projector using a
single cable. Attaching and setting up the HDMI cable will only take a
few minutes and will let you watch high-definition video from the PS3 on
the video projector.
Attach one end of the HDMI cable
to the HDMI output connector of the PS3. Turn the HDMI cable around if
it does not slip right into the HDMI output, because the HDMI cable can
only fit into an HDMI connector one way.
Attach the other end of the HDMI cable to the HDMI input connector
that is on the video projector. Make sure both sides of the HDMI cable
is securely pushed into the connectors of the PS3 and of the video
projector. Turn on the video projector. Press the "Menu" button on the
video projector's remote. Navigate to the "Sources" setting on the video
projector's Menu. Select "HDMI" from the "Sources" setting. Press the
"Menu" button on the remote control again to exit the Menu.
Adjusting the PS3
Turn on the PS3. Wait for the
"Home" menu to appear on the video projector, although the quality of
the video seen from the video projector will be muddied and dark.
Navigate from the "Home" menu to the "Systems" icon using the game
controller and select the "Display Settings" tab. Choose "Video Output
Settings" from the list presented in the screen that appears. Press the
right side of the directional pad on the game controller to move to the
Choose "HDMI" from the list presented in the screen that appears.
Press the right side of the directional pad on the game controller to
move to the next screen. Choose "Automatic" from the list presented in
the screen that appears. Press the right side of the directional pad on
the game controller to move to the "Confirmation" screen. Press the "X"
button on the game controller to make the settings active. Return to the
PS3's "Home" menu.
Watching the PS3
Insert a Blu-ray disc into the
slot at the front of the PS3. Wait as the Blu-ray disc begins to play
the video content on the video projector from the PS3 through the HDMI

Tries tv unplug replug it back like an hour later for a tv resetting itself.The HDMI (2) port might be working again.Just used the PS3 game system only conennected it in the different tv ports of for the HDMIS ports provided by the tv.U know this wright?The PS3 game system play all this funsctions.CD-Audio only,DVD movies and old PS1 games,some PS3 system may,may not support and play old PS2 games,All Blu Ray movies and All PS3 Blu Ray games.
If you have a Blu-Ray player, you can use a number of Blu-Ray discs (Spiderman 3, Terminator 2: Skynet Edition, Monsters Inc; for example) that have "optimizers" on them to help you adjust your settings. Some DVDs do as well, though not quite as in-depth. That's a start. There are other calibration discs (specifically) that are available for purchase as well. Basically, it all boils down to personal taste. Remember that contrast is the 'white level' and brightness is 'black level'. Choose the settings that look best to YOU, as you are the one that will be viewing it. However, the discs will help you distinguish the differences between too much/too little contrast, color, brightness, sharpness; as it's not always easy to figure out on your own. They usually also tell you what to look for as you make your adjustments. Good luck!
change the input to your cable box or coaxial input. check your remote to see if there is an input or source button, and press it. you might have to press it a few times to cycle through all of your inputs.
I have recently brought the same TV and had the same problem but I've mangaed to find a soultion.
The automatic setting for Blu Ray on PS3 is Full HD (1080p) but the Acoustic Solutions TV is HD ready (720p). For PS3 games it will automattically change settings for you to 720p. This is why this works straight away but Blu Ray doesn't.
You need to plug in your PS3 using the scart contection, then on the ps3 menu go to settings > display settings > HDMI. You will then need to attach the HDMI cable and manually set up HDMI by checking the 720p option and deselect 1080p.
That should then play Blu Rays too. You don't lose too much quality as 720p works nearly as well as 1080p on smaller TVs.
That Tv with the PS3 is a fantastic setup, The tv has one of the best picture quality ratings and the 4ms response time is great for fast action video and video games. The PS3 is a good decision for the Blu-Ray player, for the price you get a great game console along with the player, the drawback is that the PS3 runs alot hotter than a stand alone player, it will need to be well ventilated.
Your reciever will work but you won't be able to watch Blu-Ray in 1080p and that is the pupose of the PS3, you have to use the HDMI output on the PS3 to get 1080p and I doubt your reciever has HDMI, if it does your set if not I would buy a newer model with Dolby 5.1 and HDMI support, or if you want the best go with Dolby TrueHD.
You will need HDMI cables.
