My emerson tv say device control inactive


John, I've ran into this issue a couple of times myself. In most cases, there are easy fixes to the issue. #1, Does your TV have multiple HDMI inputs? They may be labeled HDMI1, or HDMI2, etc. I know this sounds strange, but many people don't realize that the signal source is important. #2, Connect the cord, from another device that you know works(laptop-monitor) to eliminate the possibility that your HDMI cord is bad. #3, (Probably most common) The PS3 is not the most stable platform when using the HDMI cord. Remember that the PS3 was one of the "pioneering" platforms using the HDMI connection.As such, the "auto-detect" feature is sometimes confused when switching between RCA inputs, and HDMI input. (Happens every time actually) To fix this, try a video reset on your PS3 system. It's fast, easy, and doesn't effect anything except the video/audio settings. I'll put in a link to get you started in that direction. It is the same with all models of PS3. Good luck! ^^

My ps3 console signal isn't working but the sound works but there is no signal! not even a hdmi cable works help!


Try these tips to fix the so-called "black screen of death".

Tip 1: The main reason of HDMI black screen problem due to HDMI cable may be damaged and not properly connected to the PS3 console. Please follow below step to troubleshoot PS3 HDMI cables problem:

1) Restart your PlayStation 3.
2) Look for loose cables.
3) Try to unplug all cables except the power cord, and plug them back in. If you found out that your HDMI cable is damaged, borrow a friends cable and try it. If your friends cable works fine, and the black screen error disappears. Then you can buy a brand new HDMI cable for a replacement.

Tip 2: Only try as last resort. There is a possibility you'll lose all data on your PS3's hard drive. If tip 1 didn't work, you will need to go a step deeper and reset your console. Most PS3 gamers are not aware that Sony actually included a black screen of death troubleshooting method and other HDMI problems in the PS3 manual, you can find it under the troubleshooting section - topic "console reset".

If you do it correctly, the console reset fix will allow you to reset back your PS3 to its default HDMI settings without impacting your gamer profile, and other storage data on the hard drive.

You will need to perform the following steps:

1. Place your PS3 in stand-by mode.
2. Hold down the touch power button until a series of beeps are heard.
3. Listen for one long beep, followed by two shorter beeps.
4. Release the power button.
5. Follow the instructions on screen.

If it works you should be good to go.

My PS3 wont show on my TV, i made sure that all the cords are in, until i seen one of the red cords. The metal around it was bent and the tip was burnt. Then we checked the PS2 and it worked and everything...


You may need to reset your video settings. Did you try connecting a HDMI cable recently? If so, this may have scrambled your video settings.

First things first, if possible, try to connect a usb cable to your system. Turn it off, connect HDMI, then turn it back on. It should automatically detect the HDMI.

If you have no HDMI, press and hold the power button until the system shuts off, after a few seconds (maybe 3) press and hold the power button again until you hear 3 beeps. Let go of the power button. This should get you into the safe mode. If so, try restarting the system. If the first option doesn't help you, try all options 1-5. If you are unable to get a signal from the HDMI and the options 1-5 doesn't work, you will need to send your PS3 in to Sony and not a 3rd party technician, your motherboard has gone bad.Good luck.

I CANT GET MY INPUT TO GO THRU THE HDMI CORD


There is a little switch at the box where it splits from normal RCA to the HDMI on your output cable....flip it to the other position.

TV SAYS "UNKNOWN SIGNAL" AND I CANT GET ANY VIDEO OR AUDIO


The cord may have a short in the wiring. A pin in the connector could be missing. Or the PS3 hdmi socket could be bad. You should call Playstation Technical Support line at 1-800-345-7669 (1-800-345-SONY). If it under warranty you should not try to fix this problem yourself as you could cause even more perment problems.
