I have a 47 lg lcd tv bought in 09. When i use hdmi for xbox 360 i get picture and sound but with ps3 no pic no sound. I just bought a sony bluray and get pic but no sound. I bought a lg bluray and get no...


To clarify, your TV is working correctly, since you get sound and video from all devices - Only your PS3 has no sound or video?

If your PS3 was previously used with regular AV cables (Red/White/Yellow) then you most likely need to do a PS3 video reset t output video over HDMI.

With the PS3 OFF, press and continue holding the power button until it turns on, beeps twice, and then turns back off. Do not release the power button during this process.

You may have to try the video reset a few times if it doesn't work right away.

After video reset, you should get sound and video over HDMI.

This will be something to do with the av cable or the HDMI lead. try replace them. if it still doesn't work, Message back to me and i'll have a in-dept look at your situation.

Sound but no picture on PS3 using AV3/4


if it's happening with your ps2 and your ps3 on teh same tv, try it on a different tv. if you're getting sound but no picture, tehn it's something with your cables or your tv. restting the display setting should get your picture back up. make sure the system is in standby and then hold down teh power button. it will turn green and beep, then flash green and beep again. it should brng up a picture. if not, check your component cables, especailly if it works with the original cables.

hi i think it's the heat transfer compound (fan) in the system which is wearing away causing it to over heat and shut down as a safety percaution.

When you start your PS3, press the power button and hold it for 5 seconds. It will beep and reset the machine to the default settings. What is happening is it is thinking you are still using the other cable. Reset to default and it will recognize the new cable. Hope that helps.
