    First I select the digital output and then select the audio output formats that my receiver supports (Doly Digital 5.1 in this case). then you you go back to the previous menu and it says to turn the unit on. Well it is on, the cable is connected but it will not leave this menu. The optical connector symbol on the screen remains dark. it will not leave this menu without cancelling your changes!! What is the problem here?



    Thanks!

You can't get audio from HDMI cables. You have to connect the regular AV cables into your sound system first or you can use the digital output from the PS3 into your sound system if you've got the right cables. You'll also have to configure this through the audio settings. This should solve your problem. Let me know if it doesn't.

I bought ps3 and hooked it up with hdmi cable went threw first setup and then came to screen with all options i put game in and it just stays on the options screen


Sounds like you have a bad drive/laser.

See if it will play a regular dvd. If it will, then the bluray laser is bad and needs to be replaced.

If it wont, then the entire drive is bad and needs replaced.

I would recommend returning it if you can. If you cant you can find the repair parts on ebay, but they can be a bit pricey.

Let me know if you need more assistance.

Ps3?


Check the couplings at either end of the cable. Sometimes these will loosen and can cause a lack of signal strength.

but its probably not the cable, its probably the ps3. HDMI cables don't really break because they are just wires, they don't have moving parts. Try connecting your PS3 to your TV with the regular cable red, white, and yellow connectors that you got when you bough the PS3. If the PS3 doesn't work with the original red, white, and yellow connectors then you know its the PS3. If the PS3 does work fine, you know its either the HDMI cable (still unlikely) or the HDMI connection on your TV or PS3 (more likely

Ps3 HDMI cable no audio


You might want to try another HDMI cable...the one you have may have a short in it. You can find HDMI cables for really cheap online so it's not a big deal to buy on eor two more as back up. Also, try changing the audio settings with in the BluRay or DVD itself. Sometimes the movies can default to an unsuppotred audio format.
