PS3 hdmi cable

I just bought a psyclone hdmi cable for my ps3. I hooked it up and there was no sound only a picture. I then decided to unplug the hdmi cable and use the original yellow,red, and white cables. When I plug them in i get no picture or sound. Any suggestions?

Re: PS3 hdmi cable

Hold the power button for 5 seconds or more, that will reset to regular viewing ratio. From there you can adjust to whatever you are using. I had the same problem.

Re: PS3 hdmi cable

I too had this problem except I didnt have sound or video. And the "hold the power button for 5 seconds or more" worked twice but after trying that again, it would no longer reset. Is my PS3 in trouble? My HDTV keeps saying no signal even though it detects the hdmi cable. Like I said, the reset trick no longer is working. What should I do? Help. Thanks.

All picture and no sound

simply unplug--then replug--your HDMI cable. Or also go into the audio setup menu and reapply the "automatic" setting for HDMI to get the sound to work. I don't know if Sony can do anything about this or not in a firmware upgrade, but what it can do is try to simplify the labeling on some of the sound settings.
Let me know

PS3 hdmi connection

With your PS3 on standby (red light) hold the on/off button down until it goes green and then back to red. This restores your PS3 to "factory settings", i.e. it is waiting for you to tell it how you want it to connect to your TV. Now disconnect any HDMI cables you may be trying to use and connect your PS3 to your TV via a scart connection. Now switch your PS3 on and turn to your AV channel and you should have both sound and pictures.

No video - blue screen...

since you bought this console used, it maybe set to HDMI 1080p/ 1080i/720p output(by the original owner) and if your TV does not support this there will be no picture, the only way to lower the output resoloution is to get into the options menu but to do that you will need a freind with a tv that supports whatever resoloution its been set too.

Unable to see picture

Is your PS3 in a corner or something? Because mine was and my PS3 didn't have any picture either til I moved it into an open area where the vents could breath and never had the problem again.
