Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

No Picture?? ok so i switched from HDMI to component cables and i have done this process many times before but this time my picture turned black and stayed black.   It asked for the ps3 button to be pressed but when i pressed it the lights just kept blanking for ever. so i turned off the ps3 and tried again and all i got was blinking controller lights and a black ps3 screen. i have tried 3 different cables on three different tvs. still no luck.  I hope someone can help me because i think that 150 price tag sony charging is ridiculous

Sound delay when using a hdmi cable


It is normal and real stupid---either ignore it (I won't) or go component as in a blind test done at our shop people could not tell on identical sets on HD program which was HDMI and which was Component---most of the time they thought the component was the HDMI picture

Monitor goes black - green light stays on


My screen is black, why do I not have a picture?
Answer Antenna is not hooked up to television.
  • Make sure that the antenna cable is correctly connected to the television. If it doesn't work there appears to be no signal.
Problem is caused by television broadcast
  1. Push 'INFO' button.
  2. If the screen shows channel number (1, 2, 3, etc) try another channel. Not all channels broadcast at all times.
  3. You may have a signal problem. Contact cable provider or local broadcaster regarding the specific channel.
Television is in EXT or SIDE mode, and there is no external source provided, so screen mute (black screen) is activated.
  1. Push NEXT SOURCE button on the remote.
  2. On the screen appears all sorces.
  3. Press the UP button to switch to the TV mode.
If you are using an accessory device (DVD, DVR, or VCR), be sure the device is on and running.
Blank screen when connecting to the accessory (DVD, STB, PC) device via HDMI to HDMI.

Answer
  • Make sure the cable is well connected .
  • To check which connection is selected, Press the i+ button on the remote control.
  1. When you see Blue mute / blank screen and the i+ display does not indicate any video resolution indication then there is no valid signal detected.
    • Make sure the HDMI output of the accessory is valid by changing the video output resolution to a resolution which the TV can handle.
  2. When you see a blank screen and the i+ display shows a video resolution indication then the connection is correct.
    • The blank screen is caused by the accessory device and not by the TV.
    • To detect and remedy the problem caused by the accessory device, check the instruction manual of this device.
  3. If the problem remains : reselect the HDMI external source input by changing to the other HDMI input and back to the connected HDMI :
    1. Press AV on the remote
    2. Press up and then ok
    3. Press AV again
    4. Press down and ok
    5. The compatibility check process between TV and accessory device will start over again.
  4. Reset (switch off and back on) the TV and also reset the accessory device.

Flashing / ghosting with Bose Lifestyle V30


I recommend you switch from using HDMI cables to using component (R/G/B RCA-style) cables. HD picture is superior through component cabling, and solves several HD picture issues. Component cabling from your devices should eliminate your problems.

I hope that helps.

I have issues with my unit. Sync problems


Are you sure it's the TV and not the video source ? Have you tried other video sources ? You can also try to switch over to component cable. The red/green/blue colored cable. You only need HDMI for blu-ray to get the 1080p. If your TV is only 1080i then you don't even need to use HDMI. Also, some sources actually look better with a component cable compared to HDMI. Give it shot.

No Picture on HDMI using Philips DVP5992.


You can try out by connecting the CVBS (Yello) out from player to TV and connect HDMI out from Player to TV. Goto CVBS input on Sony TV. Select set up and you should get the HDMI Video options availble. Try to change the resulution and check for Video on HDMI source.
Which disc you were playing PAL or NTSC? PAL should work for Europe.

When The HDMI cables are connected, I use Directv, I have just recently started to have the picture come on and then start flickering and various color bars pop up on screen, then the screen will go black...


It is possible that the HDMI cable is defective. Did you try another cable?

It is also possible that the HDMI port on the TV is failing.

This can be determined by the process of elimination.
