If ur setting up the HDMI cable dont check all the resulusions just check the 1080i coz 1080p is to high for your TV thats why you have that blank screen for 30 sec.

Sony bravia troubleshooting

Several possibilities here. First thing I'd try is replacing the HDMI cable. (They definitely do go bad). Second possibility is a problem with the cable box. HDMI outputs on these can fail too. If you have a set of "Component Video" cables (Pr/Py/Pb) try hooking up using those (you'll have to choose a different input on the Bravia). Good luck!

I tried to use my PS3 on a new tv (Sony Bravia) with an HDMI cable. After seeing the delay, I decided to reconnect my PS3 back to an old tv using the regular A/V cables (the red, yellow, white ones) but...

This happens when you change the output settings to HD, then switch back to regular a/v because the tv dosen't recognize the signal. Thankfully there is an easy fix. Just turn the PS3 system on using the power button on the front and continue to hold it until you hear a second "beep" sound from the system. then picture should beging to work again.

DVD hooked up to sony bravia tv: have dvd power on, but can not get any set up menus (or anything) from dvd to show on tv screen.Unable to set up remote as menu does not appear on tv screen.

Hook up the player with RGB (Red-Green-Blue or component) cables and try the picture. If everything works OK, then go to the menu and turn on the HDMI output and set the resolution (if needed).
Not every HDMI unit works with every HDMI TV. You may also have a bad HDMI cable. On a DVD recorder, you may have your HDMI cable connected to HDMI IN. You must use HDMI out.

I have looked up the infomation on your TV I noticed that your TV has two HDMI input plugs. Since your SONY BRAVIA is hooked up to one port, you need to buy another HDMI cable for your PS3. On your tv remote you should have an option to switch from video 1 to video 2 so then you can switch from the SONY BRAVIA to the PS3 the problem is you will only hear your PS3 Sound from you TV. If you want to hear your PS3 sound from your SONY BRAVIA you need to buy an optical cable (also called TOSLINK) to connect from your PS3 to the SONY BRAVIA.

Hope that helps!
