I'm able to view and play my PS3 with a component cord on the component screen. But if I try to connect my PS3 with a proven HDMI cord on the HDMI screen. The screen only displays static. I've went online to investigate any solutions, but have only come accross other PS3 users that recommend and gaurantee that its not the PS3 settings but the actual HD tv. settings and how they aren't set to proper HD settings.
My question is, how or where on the menu can i even find the HD settings so I can fiddle around and try to have the HDMI screen display my PS3.

Re: Unable to display HD device (PS3) on HDMI screen
Press the INPUT button on the remote or TV control panel until you find HDMI.
When you turn on the PS3 keep your finger on the power pad until an HDMI message apears on the screen.

Note: How to reset video output settings
If you are attempting to change to an HDMI cable from a different video cable or if the video output settings do not match those required for the display in use, the screen may stay black. If the screen stays black for more than 30 seconds, you may need to reset the video output settings of the PS3.
To reset video output settings:
Turn the PS3 system off by holding the Power button on the front of the console till you see the power light turn red.
Then hold the power button on the front of the console for at least five seconds until you hear a second beep to turn the system on again. The video output settings will automatically be reset to the standard resolution.
TV "Input" or "Video" channel for the HDMI port
You need to know the TV "Input" or "Video" channel for the HDMI port on your TV. For instance, if your TV has multiple "Input" or "Video" channels, (i.e., "Input 1", "Input 2", "Input 3", etc.), you will need to toggle through each "Input" channel on your TV until you find the correct channel that displays the HDMI picture. This is important to remember, especially if you do not see the HDMI picture after you connect the cable and configure the PS3 settings. Please refer to the TV instruction manual for more information.

There maybe some problem with your TVs resolution. ps3 outputs full hd
high resolution video(1080p) through its HDMI. May be your TV is not
supporting that resolution. Connect ps3's component video out to your TV's component video input
and then try. if it ask for any resolution selection. select 720p or
1080i, above that resolution your TV will not support. Your tv is hd ready
one, not full hd. ps3 's HDMI out is full hd (1080p). or try this
Connect your ps3 to any full hd tv and then goto video setup of ps3.
change resolution to 1080i (down scaling ). then connect to your TV via HDMI. surly u will get the video. ok
Hello there. There's a few possibilities. First, the obvious, do you have it set to 1080P in the Display Settings options? Secondly, are you using an HDMI cable? You need to be using HDMI to play games in full 1080P. I use the component cables (The red, green and blue ones) for my PS3 and when I'm on the XMB (that's the PS's desktop so to speak) it's displayed in 1080P but games will not play in 1080P, only 720P. Any old HDMI cable will do the trick, so don't get suckered by the price if you are going to pick up a cable!
