Same problem ? but with PS3 just out of warranty.
Disk would go in alright and eject but nothing else. Seemed the hard drive was faulty or something else seriously wrong? Wouldnt turn off either.
My fix was check all connections.
Turn off at back leave a moment, turn back on
and hold down on/ start button till beeps twice (about 3 secs)
Menu came up
Select 2 on menu and reset default.
Everything works again . PHEW.
Hope this helps.

I have plugged my fire stick to the hdmi and power outlet, turned on the tv, but nothingness has appeared on tv and is not responding when I use the home button on voice remote? What shall I do?

Typically you need to be in video feed for the HDMI port. On the remote, the button is usually called video or input. Press that button to get to your HDMI port. Then you should should see the Amazon fire stick feed.

It sounds like the HDMI receiver chip on your Main board is fried, probably from a power surge. You will need to find an exact replacement board on Ebay or Shopjimmy.

My dog chewed the power cord on my ps3 while it was on and it triped the breaker in my house ,i got a new power cord but now the ps3 powers up but cant get the hdmi cable to work to tv

It may be possible that he has caused a power outage that disabled your HDMI output. It is a common problem, both HDMI and AV outputs will go out.

Can you get a display with AV cords (if you haven't tried, get them ready)
You may be faced with a problem that will cause you to use AV or Component cables. (recommended if HDMI output is out)

Try to reset your settings.
Plug in both AV and HDMI cables.

Press and hold the power button until the systems shuts off. (wait 2 seconds)

Press and hold the power button again until you here 3 beeps. Let go. Make sure that you are switching your TV from HDMI to AV and vice versa.

It should ask you to connect your controller via usb and press the PS button in

the middle of your controller. There will be a menu with 6 options.

Try 1.

If you are able to get the AV cables to work with this method, try setting your HDMI up as you did before.

If you cannot get HDMI to work, then your output has gone out. You must use the AV/Component cables.

If you get no display at all but the system appears to be responding normally (outside of the display) then:

You have what is commonly known as the "Green light of Death."

It is when your system powers on and acts normally but no display. Your GPU (graphics chip) has cracked or become damaged and will need to be sent in to SONY. You can try a 3rd party technician, but this repair has a very very low success rate.

Brand New. Plugged in, first of all buttons don't seem to respond to touch or anything. Issue: runs a "test" as far as i can tell (Analog, then Digital, then HDMI, then repeats again), then goes...

It is not seeing a good signal from your computer (that is what it is doing looking at analog, the digital, the hdmi) Could be a bad cable, or plugged into the wrong connector on the computer. Computer is on right?
Try turning off computer plug in monitor then turn on computer see if you get any reaction.
Another suggestion if your are using the digital cable, try the analog (or visa versa)
Let me know if that doesn't help.

I have a TH-42PD25 TV. It turned off by itself. The red light on the front control panel is blinking. The TV is not responding to the power button on the remote or the front of the TV.

Here is a link to your users manual

If youre using a PC or HDMI, the manual suggests this :

Rarely, the TV will not display video in
HDMI input from devices with HDMI or DVI
output due to bad communication between the
TV and the devices. Should this happens, unplug
the HDMI/DVI device and plug it back on.
