Ps3 wont register through hdmi to tv

PS3 powers up reads disks, or seems to, but when I look for it on my HDMI for the TV it won't show up anymore. I tried the component cables as well and they don't give a picture either. Am I missing something? Can it be reset? I mostly use this for my Bluray movies and not for games.

    When I plug HDMI from PS3 to Samsung Receiver then to Samsung LCD I get no picture and no sound. If I plug PS3 into TV everything works fine.

To reset the playstation, hold down the power button until it beeps twice and turn it off from the back. at that point, wait three to five seconds and then turn it back on from the back and then the front.

then you can can automatically or manually change the audio/ video settings.

i recommend that you do manual with the problems you seem to have. if you are using hdmi, start from the lowest setting on the visual and test each one to see what your resolution your tv has.

then setup your audio.

    i forgot to mention that after the second beep, make sure that it shuts down and you see the red light before you shut it off from the back.

    oh yeah... i forgot something else...



    make sure your hdtv has hdmi 3.0 (i think that's the correct version number). if it is not 3.0 then your ps3 will not disply at all on your hdtv.

I connected my sons ps3 to our new hd tv and now it wont connect to his tv as it only seems to be using the hdmi output which his tv does not support


Hi,

Turn the PS3 off and make sure it is just showing a red light,

Then, with the PS3 connected to the TV with the regular (not HDMI) connections, press and hold the power button.

As soon as you see the screen flicker, release the power button.

That should do it!

I can not get ps3 to show on TV. It turns on, green light in front with blue light with disk in.


you might have it stuck on a different video output e.g HDMI or AV. i had the same problem when i took my ps3 to a friends house mine was stuck on HDMI from my tv and i put it on my friend's tv on AV and it didnt show up i thought my ps3 was broke but when i got it home i realised you have to change it from HDMI to AV through settings on the XMB on display settings. hope this helps

Ps3 plays audio but does not show image on tv


Well you can just use the hdmi cable if you're going both audio and video in to your tv. With your hdmi cable you get the best quality for both.

But in anycase, it seems that your PS3 is set up to output video via HDMI cable. To reset our video output settings, simply power down your PS3 (turned off) and hold down the power button until you hear the second beep. (around 5-10 secs) Power back up and hopefully you'll have video via your av cable. Hope this helps.

Cant get hdmi for ps3 to work on my jvc hd 52g887


Had same problem with Panasonic PT60LC14 tv when connecting by HDMI cord to my PS3 and a blue ray disc was playing. First, read your tv manual to see what video inputs it supports . Then read the PS3 online manual (section on "video output settings").

For me I found out that my tv only supported 1080i (along with 480i/p, 780p) and the ps3 manual says blue ray outputs 1080p, so my blue ray discs will not play on my tv according to the PS3 manual. PS3 manual says to restart the ps3 (power off, then power on and HOLD for 5 seconds) - then the standard video output settings should be reset. Hopefully the ps3 menu will pop up at least. I haven't tried this yet but if it doesn't work, i'll may try to reset PS3 video out settings manually first using another tv that works with it ..

It wont run through HDMI


Follow the guy aboves solution to reset your Ps3 to 480i. Turn the power to the system off from the switch on the back and then when you flip it back have the power button held down on the front of the system. This only resets the picture doesn't change anything else or erase any games, I had to do it and it works!!
