PS 3Not connecting to HDMI

Hi. I bought a PS3 recently but cannot get anything on my HDMI channel.

I thought it could be a shoddy cable that came with a bundle set for the console so I bought aally high spec one but got results.

Someone told me there are a couple of types of HD and that the PS3 doesnt work on one of them!!?? Not sure if this is true.

My TV is BUSH and has one HDMI socket. I have never plugged anything else into the HDMI.

Can you help?

You have to go into the video settings and set it up for either HDMI, or analog (red and white) that came with it when you bought it. I had the same problem, maybe this will help. I went from a HDMI tv and then tried to connect it to a regular tv. Couldn't read the menu screen, so in the directions, you can "reset" the PS3 by holding down the on/off button and listen for two beeps, that should get you video back to go into the settings between different tvs. Hope that helps.

Connect the PS3 using another cable then go into the menu setup and make sure that the resolution is set to a level your tv can handle. Start with 480p and go up from there. I would imagine BUSH (never heard of it) isn't the highest quality tv so you have to make sure it can handle the signal. Start with that.

I am trying to connect ps3. (bought may 2012 with uncharted 3). To my denon 2313 via hdmi. No video at all or sound? Please help


You need to tell the PS3 to use the HDMI cable output. To test have you tried connecting the PS3 directly to the TV. Once you have that working then add in the AVR.

Connecting ps3 to home cinema


For sound use the Digital Coax in, if the PS3 has digital out. Most HiFi home cinema systems have HDMI with all channels audio through HDMI. Check cinema settings to configure input for hdmi audio, also check PS3 audio output setting options to include all supported audio type by your receiver. It's not just a plug and play. Both systems need to gor through a user setup process to make sure they sync and play well with each other.

Connect PS3 for playing/viewing blue-ray thru surround sound


I just finished setting up my system last night and was facing similar problems with sound/video from my PS3. The only option I could get working was to have the HDMI cable connected from the PS3 to the TV and then connect the Optical cable to the receiver for sound. I was under the impression that HDMI handles sound and video but for whatever reason the PS3 does not agree.

I have DTS sound and fantastic picture now through my PS3, hope this helps.

Cheers

Connect PS3 for playing/viewing blue-ray thru surround sound


Connect the PS3 to your TV with the hdmi cable and to the surround sound system with a digital optical cable, then set your PS3 to output sound through the optical port (through the sound options menu) and you're good to go!

Please help with getting 5.1 sound from my TV!


You must run a Digital Optical cable from your PS3 to your reciever. Then press your function button on your recievers remote until you see SAT/CABLE on your recievers display. Next go to your PS3 settings and go to Sound settings, then Audio Output settings, and select Digital out (OPTICAL) then your done. This is the only way to get true digital sound from your PS3 to your reciever.
