Start with a video reset first.

Hold down the power button until you hear two beeps then release immediately. That will change the video back to the default settings. Let me know what happens and we'll go from there.

1.Put your PS3 on standby.
2. Unplug the power lead.
3. Connect HDMI cable to HDMI out on PS3 and HDMI in on TV
4. Connect PS3 so that the red standby light is showing
5. Hold down the On/Off button until you hear a second beep. The PS3 will try and detect the display output settings on your monitor.

Playstation 3 has sound but not showing picture


It sounds like you have changed your display settings either to HDMI but are not connected with HDMI or you have set the progressive scan to ON and it's not supported by your TV. Try turning off the Playstation 3 and then hold the power button for about 5 seconds, until you hear a second set of beeps. This procedure will reset your display settings, then auto detect your connection, provided you have kept up with the updates. If you have kept up with the updates or aren't sure, you can use the same steps, but you will need to be connected via Composite Cable and not HDMI. If this doesn't work, you may need to send it in for reparis.

Ok, you are actually holding the power button down for too long. Please do the following to sort out the display on your PS3.

Turn the PS3 off into standby (red light on)

Press and hold the power button. It will beep once when you first press it, then beep again about 5 seconds later. Release the power button when you hear the second beep. The display will now reset and it should detect your HDMI display with no problem.

Hope this helps

The viewfinder does not display anything


Hi!
The display is broken. They are not repairable, only replacable. You should contact your local Pentax service center. Small repair shops could do it too, as new displays are available on eBay.
Hope this helps!

Compaq wf 1907 monitor speakers--no sound


No sound from monitor speakers
If the built-in speakers on the monitor do not produce sound, perform each step that follows, testing for sound after each step, until you can hear sound:
  1. Close the software program you are using that is experiencing the sound problems. Test for audio using another software program.
    If the volume is adequate using another software program, the issue is with the computer, not the monitor. If the volume is still low, continue with this procedure.
  2. Check the cable connection. If the monitor-to-computer connection is a VGA cable (usually blue on both ends), an additional audio cable is needed between the monitor and the computer. Check that the audio cable is connected properly.
  3. Try to adjust the volume higher using the monitor front-panel volume button.
  4. Using the buttons on the monitor, navigate through the onscreen display (OSD) menu to find audio or speaker settings and enable the speakers.
  5. Click Start c01292216.gif , Control Panel , and then click Sounds and Audio Devices .
  6. From the Volume tab, check the Device volume, and make sure it is not muted.
  7. From the Audio tab, in the Sound playback field, click the Volume button. Make sure the audio device is not muted and the volume outputs are at adequate levels.
  8. If the monitor-to-computer connection is an HDMI cable, an additional audio cable might be needed, depending on the setup and configuration of the system. To find out whether an additional audio cable is needed, go to
HP and Compaq Desktop PCs - Using HDMI Audio with a Desktop Computer


This document pertains to HP or Compaq PCs with an HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) connector.
HDMI sends both audio and video through the same connection. If you want to hear audio from an HDMI connection, HDMI audio must be set through Windows . For example, if a computer is connected via HDMI to a monitor or TV and the proper HDMI audio settings are made, both audio and video will be sent to the display device.
Use the following steps to activate HDMI audio on your computer:

    NOTE: If you are setting up your computer for the first time, it may be easier to use a DVI connection or DVI-to-VGA adapter connection for the initial setup. Then, if you want to use an HDMI connection to connect a TV or monitor, activate sound for the HDMI connector using the steps that follow before connecting the HDMI cable to the TV or monitor.


    NOTE: After recovering the computer using the Recovery Manager, repeat this procedure to activate sound for the HDMI connector.

Step 1: Enabling HDMI sound in the BIOS
To hear audio through the HDMI connector to a monitor or display, enable the Onboard Audio setting in the computer BIOS settings by completing the following steps.

    NOTE: If you choose the default BIOS Setup options or upgrade the BIOS, you must repeat this procedure to enable audio for the HDMI connector.

  1. Turn off the computer.
  2. To enter the BIOS, turn on the computer and press the F10 key repeatedly until a BIOS Setup screen opens.
    A BIOS Setup screen opens.
  3. Press the right arrow key on the keyboard to select the Advanced tab.
  4. Press the down arrow key to select Onboard Audio , and then press the Enter key.
    Figure 1: Example of Onboard Audio menu
    c00792920.jpg
    An option window opens.
  5. Press the down arrow key to select Enabled , and then press the Enter key.
    Figure 2: Onboard Audio Enabled

  6. Press the F10 key. Select Yes to save the default settings, and then press the Enter key.
  7. The computer restarts. HDMI sound is now enabled.
