Well PS3's come with a 1 year warranty, I'd check your date of purchase to see if it was under 1 year, if so - you can get it repaired under warranty if it's faulty.

I have a ps4, when I turn it on the blue light will come on and then it'll go to the white one and there is no image on the t.v. even the homepage on the ps4 won't even show. Anyone know why?

1.Put your PS3 on standby.
2. Unplug the power lead.
3. Connect HDMI cable to HDMI out on PS3 and HDMI in on TV
4. Connect PS3 so that the red standby light is showing
5. Hold down the On/Off button until you hear a second beep. The PS3 will try and detect the display output settings on your monitor.

HDMI no longer output after lightning storm. ps3 still has all the data and can still output in composite. tried resetting and reboot and still not working

I would try another device that uses HDMI output and plug it into that HDMI tv input to ensure that it is not your tv that is at fault. If the TV is fine, more than likely something in your PS3 got fried. This is actually a common issue with the PS3 as you can see here:

If your tv is fine you will more than likely have to call up Sony for a repair or a replacement. Lightning can do damage to any electronic device from up to miles away. EMF damage is a nasty thing. It used to wreak all kinds of havoc for the wireless internet company I used to work for.

I hope this helps! If it does, please give it a thumbs up!

Ps3 and onkyo receiver


I have a similar setup and am having problems of my own, but i've got it somewhat working at the moment.

I have the TV connected via HDMI to the receivers HDMI output port.

I have the PS3 connected via HDMI to the receivers HDMI input port 1.

I went on the receiver and followed the instructions in the manual to setup the DVD function on the receiver (i chose to call my ps3 a dvd) to use HDMI-1. I can't remember the button combination as i'm not at my hosue right now, but it was in the HDMI section of the manual (page 44 on my manual). Essentially I had to tell the receiver to enable HDMI for the DVD function rather than being defaulted to "No". At that point, with the default ps3 setup, I was able to get video to pass through.

Next, i went into the video options on the ps3 and changed it to 1080p (since my tv supports that).

Where I"m having my problem is that the sound from the ps3 outputs directly to the TV and doesn't output on my receiver for some reason.

How I've rigged that to work is to take the HDMI to RCA cable that came with my PS3 and i plugged in the Red and White wires on the back of the receiver in the DVD section of inputs. At that point the sound comes through the receiver.

What I don't know how to do and would really like to know is how to get the sound to output on my receiver via HDMI only and not with the extra cable.

Anyway, if i'm making sense above and you follow that, you should be up and running (but maybe not in an optimal configuration).

Let me know if you ahve any questions.

Also, if anyone knows the solution to my issue, i'm all ears.

Hdmi connection doesnt work on ps3

By you saying that you have a new cable & tv, I assume you had the console conected tru composite before (red, white & yellow rca cable). This is what you need to do: Connect the PS3 to the tv with HDMI cable only, do not use the composite cable at the same time, reset your PS3 by pressing and holding the power button, when the power is off, for about 7 to 10 secconds, it would cicle from power off, on, then off again, it would also give you 2 sets of beeps, after the power is off, turn your tv on, make sure you select HDMI input on it, then turn your PS3 on, the console would set itself to the best resolution available on your tv. Give it a try!

Onkyo TX-SR605 hdmi output jack was damaged and needs replacing. A) Where can I get the part and how much for it? B) Does the replacement part require solder or is it a snap in type connection?

The hdmi output and inputs are on a modular circuit board that you only need a philips screwdriver to swap out. I need this board as well since I also have a damaged hdmi output jack but have not been able to locate the replacement board. If anyone knows where to look I would appreciate knowing.
