When I was having this same problem, all I did was this: The HD television when plug up to the PS3 will see it and asked you to change settings when you click yes the problem is solved. So, start over turn on television then PS3 then choose yes to change settings.

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 have the same problem with my Samsung LE46A656 A1F Full HD


Hi,

If it was doing it on your old console then its the TV not the PS3.

Causes: HDMI cable (Replace cable), HDMI socket on TV (Get it repaired), If it happens on all HDMI inputs then the video board maybe faulty, Interference - location of PS3 to other equipment.

The first thing to do is move everything else away from your TV except for the PS3, now factory reset the Samsung TV and make sure your firmware is up to date my records show that an update came out in May for your TV, also factory reset the PS3 and setup the HDMI video settings using the wizrad in the PS3, now connect the PS3 through all HDMI inputs to see if its one input or all, if all inputs are the same then the TV maybe faulty.

Let me know how you get on.

Thanks

Sony ps3 an samsung tv


Well your PS3 Can't connect with your TV to the Samsung, because PS3 Was made HD Blu-Ray. If your TV/Samsung is not supported by High Def. or Blu-Ray, it will not work, you will need a different HDMI Cable, and it should work fine.
Hope this Helped.

Full HD picture NO SOUND from ps3 to lg42hd using HDMI


Maybe your TV is not made for HD from the Sony Console. Try calling Sony Customer support, then your TV's brand Customer support. That will tell you if your TV Model allows the HD from the PS3. Remember though, PS3 Uses Blu-Ray. So you need Blu-Ray for your TV. Hope this helped.
