Well if you would need another hdmi cable to test it. First ensure all connection are properly plugged in. Another thing to test is to maybe take your ps3 plug it into your tv to ensure that its not the tv itself. After all this doesnt work it maybe the video out itself has just worn out. There are many things we can try to do before hand before we come to the conclussion the lifesystem is broke. Which might even be getting another hdmi cable to test out. If when you do get a hdmi cable and it still doesnt work. Call Bose and have it serviced. I can speak first hand for bose customer service and great turn around rates on servicing. They have good warrantys. let me know if any of the tips to try I told you works so I can further help resolve your issue.

thanks Nathan

I connected my surround sound to the audio output on my samsung tv and it works fine. Of course I don't have an hdmi input on my surround sound system because its an older model, but it works great. Just got to put the surround sound to audio instead of dvd or tuner setting

Why does it shut down intermittently?

It is over heating. It shuts off to protect the heat from damaging the electronic circuit components.

Sounds like a main circuit breaker tripping. That's going to be tough to find. It's an intermittent short somewhere. This would be my "best guess".

Probably NOT a transformer. Most likely in the power amp. Many have a thermal cutout that shuts the thing down when the chip/stick gets to hot. Your description leaves some questions... IF you don't get anything at all out of the left, then look first for a short from the amp to the output jack. This probably has a dual chip amp in it and half that chip may be bad heating up and shutting the whole thing down.

Fuel shutting down

Anti theft system. You might have a door lock causing the anti theft system to kick in. (thinking its being stolen.)

Carrier A/C Intermittent Shut-down Problem

It sounds like there is something in the system that is over heating. A t-stat will either work or it won't there are relays that have 24v coils and can become weak. If your air handler is shutting down it shut down the condenser, if the air handler is staying on but condenser is shuting down check the outside contactor. I am an a/c contractor and can be contacted at 504-722-3946 Eddie.
