Samsung TV Is Not Picking Up A Playstation 3 HDMI Signal


If you are able to connect your PS3 to another TV using the same HDMI cable that would rule out your PS3, if it works.....or
does the PS3 itself have any settings that perhaps need to be set to an HDMI output as opposed to Composite or SCART etc?
Also have a look at the HDMI settings in theh TV menu too.

I was playing my PS3 and moved it from my tv upstairs to my tv downstairs. After plugging my PS3 in my tv downstairs, on which it had worked just 1 week previously, my tv picked up no signal from my PS3....


Try this.

Plug your PS3 on either TV. Turn on the backswitch. When the red light in front is on, put your finger on the on/off button in front AND KEEP IT THERE. You will hear some beeps; don't worry about that. Keep your finger on the button until the front power light goes red again. This resets the PS3 video settings. Turn the PS3 on and the TV should pick up the signal.

Hope this helps. Keep us posted.

I am trying to connect a panasonic blue ray recorder model number dmr bw 780 to the network i have followed the instrutions on connecting a lan cable to the unit and connecting the other end to a router...


This could be a few things. 1) Did you ever set p your router to only put out so many IP addresses? Meaning normally it is set for 50 IPs but a lot of people go in and set the IPs up for only how many computers are on it. This causes problems when people come over your house and connect their phones and such. 2) Some time when you put on new devices you have to reset your router. It has conflicts sometimes and all that is needed is a good reboot. 3) I don't know your unit but make sure you have everything setup to be auto on your device. Meaning auto ip, DNS and, Gateway on your player is set that way. 4) It maybe that your cable is bad. Just to make sure it isn't the cable try it on a laptop. Making sure you turn off your wireless on the laptop when you try this. Is the cable is bad the wireless will still pick up an IP faking you out thinking it works.
Hope this helps.

Im trying to hook up to playstation network but it never works the wi-fi connection works on everything but the playstation network


Look in Network settings on the XMB there is a diagnostic tool in there, what is the signal of the network that the Playstation is receiving? Most people don't realise that if the PS3 is in a tv cabinet or unit or something that's going to block the signal and if it drops below say 50% you are going to keep dropping your connection, especially during an on-line gaming session where you ping is a priority. So... even if you are sat on a laptop next to the TV cabinet, the signal's probably not the same in the unit.
You could try running a network (ethernet) cable from your router to it to see if there is a software issue rather than a problem with the network.
The last thing to try is to login to your wireless router settings and go to the advanced settings and see if it is trying to block your playstation, on some routers you need to allow certain IP addresses etc. You could manually assign an IP address to your PS3 and then write it into the router settings...

Im connecting through my neighbor cab only get about 17% is ther anything i can do from my house to boost my ps3 antenna


You could move your ps3 to the wall closest to their house. lol.


Assuming they are letting you piggyback their internet.

1. You could try pointing the antennas toward each other.

2. Another thing you can try it building a can-tenna. Sometimes you can use a pringle can or something similar to direct the antenna signals toward the source in a more focus fashion. I've gotten to it work in some buildings that seem to absorb wireless signals.

3. You could get a cheap router to boost your signal and set it up as a repeater/access point. Some routers do not offer the access point idea but you can flash them with firmware at dd-wrt.com; just make sure you pick a compatible router.

Connect ps3 wirelees to internet


On your PS3, do the following:

- scroll to settings
- network settings
- internet connection settings
- select wireless

Follow the on screen instructions, and use the 'easy' set up option as it is all that is required on most.

For your Router:
- Know the SSID
- Have WEP key or any security info to hand
- If you have the SSID broadcast switched off on the router, it may not appear on the PS3. If the PS3 cannot locate your network, try enabling SSID broadcast.

Hope that helps!
