HDMI Input only reads Digital TV and not PS3 or AV Receiver
I have an 11 month old Conia 50” TV. About a month ago the HDMI stopped registering the PS3. We have tested the PS3 on other TV’s and it works fine. It also works fine connecting it to the TV via analogue leads.
The digital TV box however works fine through the HDMI input, which leads me to believe that there is nothing wrong with the HDMI input.
But the AV Receiver also won’t register via HDMI.
As I said, this problem just occurred overnight and the only suggestion that the Playstation customer support could give me was that the TV had switched onto a certain HDMI lock. We have tried the HDMI with 3 different HDMI cables (2 are brand new) and still nothing.
Now that Conia has gone into receivership, trying to get help is very hard!!

There are two ways you can connect your PS3 to your VIzio. First, you can do it with HDMI cable. Here the HDMI output from PS3 goes to HDMI input of the TV. Second, you can do it with the AV multi out cable.Here the multi output from the PS goes to AV input of the TV. After doing this please select the source accordingly. Good luck.
Hi In this configration you will not get surround sound. Because tv is not able to reproduse the surround sound through its out put from the HDMI input. You have to connect the HDMI of PS3 to the Onkyo receiver and the HDMI Monitor Out of the Onkyo to the TV. This can only done if the Onkyo AVR Have HDMI IN/OUT option.
If not the connect the Optical out of PS3 to any one of the optical input of the Onkyo receiver. After that you have to goto the setup Menu the Onkyo and assing the optical input in wich you have conncted the PS3.
Aslo the following setting in PS3
Menu>>> Settings >>> Sound Settings >>> Audio Output Settings >>> Select the connector..= DIGITAL OUTPUT (OPTICAL) Ajin
If you see a no signal message, then it means that the signal output format of the PS3 does not match . It happens if you have previous used it on another tv and now connected it to a different tv. To resolve this, turn off the PS3 . Press and hold the power button on the PS3 till you hear three BEEPS. The PS3 should automatically detect the tv's resolution and the initial setup screen should appear. After that you should just follow on-screen instructions to set it up.
PlayStation 3 (PS3) is a high-definition gaming console that supports
both standard AV connections and high-resolution connections (such as
HDMI). Most of the older Philips TVs come with a standard AV input.
Newer, flat-panel Philips TVs include standard AV inputs and
high-resolution inputs. To get the best video quality
out of your PS3, using an HDMI connection is recommended if the option
is available. The PS3 does not include an HDMI cable, only a standard AV
Connect the flat end of the PS3 AV cable into the "AV Multi Out" port on the back of the PS3.
Connect the "red," "white" and "yellow" prongs on the
opposite end of the PS3 AV cable into the corresponding "red," "white"
and "yellow" AV inputs on the TV (usually located on the side or in the
Press the "Source" button on the Philips TV remote.
Select the "AV" video display mode.
Turn on the PS3. The PS3 logo will appear on the screen.
I would suggest you check if your PS3 is set up on going through the HDMI Cable.On your PS3's XMB scroll to settings -> Display Settings -> ANd from there go down to the one that says "Y Pb/Cb Pr/Cr Super-White (HDMI)" and hit X and select the option Yes... That sets the PS3 displaying through the HDMI If you are already have done that I'm pretty sure you know you have to change the Input on your TV to HDMI... Take your remote and hit Input -> Scroll down to HDMI on the Input Source menu and hit Enter when you get to HDMI If the AV on your PS3 works and not your HDMI sounds like Display Settings issue... If you have done all that, that is strange if it still doesn't work. There are some people that are having problems with the AV Cable with the PS3, I tried this and it really does work. I switched from HDMI on one tv to a AV Cable on another and when I did that neither TV would display content from my tv. The fix for this is resetting your PS3, like on a iDevice you hold the home button and lock button, for the PS3 you hold the Power off button and the Eject button for around 10 seconds. This resets your PS3 into default video settings. Until it Turns on, Beeps, and Turns off. This should work.
We had the same red "pixilation" problem with our new Vizio 47" set. Read within this site for our solution (posted by Cavanaju): Call Vizio and have them come out and replace the LVDS cable and the main board. They will have to order and bring in the parts, which will involve them unscrewing a million screws to take off the entire back of the tv and replace that calbe within it all and the main board. It will then be just fine! (I hope...we just had ours fixed 4 days ago and so far, so good...) Hope this works. Seems to be a factory defect they have had with this set. Good luck!
Depending on the year of your model of VIZIO your digital optical output may be tied to the DTV input only. Meaning the only time you will have audio coming out of the digital optical output is when your using the tuner and your on a digital channel. If your television is newer and the digital optical output is in white on the back of the television than it is tied to HDMI and the DTV Tuner and you will pass audio through the digital optical output when using HDMI or the Digital Tuner.
Now to get connect the HT: Normally you would run a digital optical cable from the source device to the home theatre system. Meaning if it was a PS3 you would run a optical cable from the Digital Out on the back of the PS3 to the Digital In on the Home Theatre receiver. If it was a DVD player than you would run the optical cable from the DVD player to the HT receiver. If you have a newer VIZIO and the optical output is in white and not black than you can run HDMI from the PS3 to the VIZIO and then run a optical cable from the VIZIO to the Home theater receiver.
You will have to adjust the audio setting in the PS3 to run audio out of the HDMI port if it is set to run audio out of the Digital Out or AV out. Also, if your going to run audio from the PS3 to the HT receiver through the Digital Out then you need to change the audio setting in the PS3 to Digital Out.
1. Select (Sound Settings) under (Settings) in the home menu. 2. Select [Audio Output Settings].
3. Select the input connector on the audio device.
Channel numbers and audio formats that are supported vary depending on the connector in use. AV is 2 ch. only, Digital Out is 2 ch. & 5.1 ch, and HDMI is upto 7.1.
My HDMI has stopped working. I have had a technician from Dish network out to my house 3 times and they have replaced the receiver and the HDMI cable and were unable to get the set to work all I get is a blue screen and a message which reads no signal. I also cannot use mt set using 3 rca cables connected to the component input when set to 1080 I keep intermittenly get a black screen then a blue screeen and sometimes a no signal message. I have to watch the tv set to 720 on component 2 and it is the most stable in that setting. Please send help
