Playstation 3 hook up problem

I have a 61" Samsung DLP, a DirecTv HD Receiver/Recorder box, a Panasonic SA PT950 home theater system and now the PS3. I think that only the HDMI 2 works on the TV and it is now hooked up to the DirecTv (I don't thnik the HDMI 1 works on the TV) with component cables from the TV to the Panasonic home theater. I cannot figure out how to wire the 4 components together and make them work -HELP!

    I have the same TV and I use both the HDMI 1 and 2 ports if you are saying that the HDMI 1 does not work then it could be some sort of configuration setting problem or a internal problem with your TV

I ended up using the component in cable hookup and fiber optic digital audio instead of HDMI - works fine.

My PS3 Turns on. The green light turns on but when i turn it to the right HDMI the screen is blank.


Hello,

This sounds like a cable problem. If you're going through a home theater receiver, try plugging it directly into the TV. If it works then it sounds like your home theater box needs to be tuned properly. If it doesn't work, then try replacing the HDMI Cable.
Failing that it could be a problem with the HDD. Try holding down the power button until you hear it beep a few times, then let go.

How do you set up a ps3?


Hello,

I would suggest you follow these procedures, hook up your PlayStation 3 to a television. You must decide whether your TV supports high definitions (HD) resolution or not. For HD resolution, you must use a HDMI cable or a component video cable. These cables also support standard definition (SD) resolution. If you only have an SD television, you can use an S-video cable or an AV cable. These two can't support HD resolution.

Connect the PlayStation 3 to any audio equipment such as a A/V receiver or home entertainment system. Connect using a digital audio cable or, alternatively, run an HDMI cable to your A/V receiver then another HDMI cable to the television set.

Plug in the Ethernet cable, then connect the other end to a 10Base T jack from your home network. This connects you to the Internet and the world of online gaming.

Attach the AC power cord to the PlayStation 3, and then plug it into a surge protected wall outlet. Don't plug in the power cord until all other connections have been made as a chance of shock exists.

Perform the initial set up of the system. Turn on the power of the TV and game console, and follow the on-screen prompts. The pre-installed software guides you through the set up process.
Take care.

The sound goes out randomly when I'm using my ps3 I have a 42 inch sanyo and am connected with the hdmi cable. It's done it since I got the tv


When one thinks of quality home theater projectors, few brands cometo mind. Sony, JVC and Panasonic are some that do. Sanyo, on the otherhand, may not be on one's short list. However, they've been makinghigh-quality, affordable home theater projectors for years. Theirlatest offering, the PLV-Z3000 reviewed here, is no exception.Retailing for $2,999 - though depending on where you shop, that figuremay be much lower - the PLV-Z3000 is among the most affordablefull-featured 1080p projectors in the marketplace today. The PLV-Z3000 is a full-resolution HD projector (1920x1080p) with areported

Difficutly with connecting optical digital cables


Yes the digital audio cable should be inserted until there is a firm, clicking connection. It should only be able to fit in correctly with one orientation. It should be slightly difficult to remove when properly connected.

If your cable is slipping out, then I suggest you have a defective cable or (hopefully not) a damaged/defective optical connection port.
