Have you already tried:

Connect both sets of cables (HDMI and RCA's)

Go to SETTINGS, VIDEO SETTINGS, VIDEO OUTPUT SETTINGS

Choose HDMI if that' what you want to use.

Just follow the prompts.

If the tv supports hdmi you should have no problems.

Just make sure you use the RCA ports for video since HDMI doesn't include audio, just video.

Let me know if this works.

I have a HDMI problem with my PS3. I have it


You will need to turn on the PS3 and hook it up with rca so you can access the console menus. Turn it on and get to the main dashboard. 1. Go to Settings -> Display Settings (not video) 2. Select [ Video Output Settings ] 3. Select HDMI 4. Select Resolution 5. Select Screen Size 6. Save the settings 7. Reboot the console. This should resolve the problem. We've seen PS3 consoles that would not reset by performing a hard reset. We were able to resolve this issue through the settings menu though. Let me know if it is still giving you issues.Hank GATpro Repairs

Try entering Recovery Mode and choose "Restore Default Settings".


If that doesn't help, you may have an HDMI port failure - which will require returning the unit to Sony or sending it to a third-party PS3 repair shop.

My ps3 won't work with rca jacks


when you use the HDMI cable the system becomes automated, it detects that the HDMI cable is in use and with your help it sets up your audio and video.

RCA or Composite cables (same thing) are basic and dont communicate, so you have to go to your system settings in the XMB (cross media bar) and look for video settings, change them back to composite, and do the same for your audio. If that is too much work for ya you can do a master reset of the system. Hook the system up using your RCA cables while the system is powered off, then turn the system on wait 30 seconds and then hold your finger on the power button until it beeps twice, this will reset the system to its original settings

Issues Displaying picture from HDMI upconversion


I've posted this other places. Hope it helps.

My HT-S6100 had a similar problem with my DVD player and some times with my Cable/DVR box. The signal wasn't getting received at the TV. So, first I changed the input jacks my DVD and Cable box are plugged into on the receiver (e.g. from HDMI 1 & HDMI 3 to HDMI 2 & HDMI 4). Second, I reprogrammed the Input Assignments to match (e.g. HDMI in 2&4). Third, I deleted any Input Assignments that weren't applicable. For instance, I'm only using HDMI connections, but there were Digital and Component Input Assignments programmed in. When I say I deleted them, I actually set them to "----" (just scroll through the options and you'll find this.) Finally, I turn on my video/audio sources (PS3 in your case) and let them load/warm up before I turn on my Onkyo receiver. It seems to be working. Good luck.

My ps3 will work on the rca hookups but not on the hdmi hookups


When you hooked up the HDMI did you go into display settings and change all the PS3 settings to HDMI instead of AVI? I thought my HDMI wasnt working, just a blank screen but I could hear the sound, then it hit me..... change the video and display settings to HDMI and poof, there was the pic. lol

JVC LT-32DS75SJ issue with HDMI


Try this

1. Turn ON TV
2. Connect PS3 to TV HDMI input
3. select TV HDMI input for PS3
4. turn OFF PS3 if it is ON
5. Press and hold the [I/O]Power button until the PS3 until you get the "HDMI Detected" message.

Also, this TV has a circuit that deactivates the HDMI if the rear cover is removed. It is possible the HDMI may have been turned OFF. This is reset in the service menu of the TV.
