Hooking up a PS3 through HDMI

I have my PS3 hooked up to the tv through HDMI, but the tv wont recognize the hook up, i know i have to load the PS3 HDMI set up in the menu but its still not recognizing it when i try to set up, it only works through the yellow red and white cables when the tv is in game mode. When the PS3 tries looking for the active HDMI connection it goes back to default saying the connection was not available.

SOURCE: closed caption problem

I had the same issue... here's what I did.  If power off your cable box, then press the menu button, there's a selection to enable or disable Closed Captioning.  This works for both HD series Motorola boxes Comcast offers, at least in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area.  Hope this helps!

SOURCE: Help HDMI Splitter Doesn't Work!

The HDMI splitter is intended to take one source to two displays. You need an HDMI switch to take two sources to one display, a device you can tell which input to select.

SOURCE: HDMI cable hooked up, now CLOSED CAPTIONING is stuck on!

It has got to be the box. I would try to contact Scientific Atlanta if any way possible. The TV doesn't choose what inputs it shows CC.In other words, it would show it on all Inputs if it was the TV. Good luck and Thanks

Would like to hook up playstation2 can you help with this

I would suggest hooking up via HDMI or via the composite cables. Then all you should have to do is turn on your ps3, change the input on your tv to whichever port shows the ps3 or new input device. If it doesn't for some reason recognize it as ps3, you can always go into more detail using the tv to rename that port as the PS3. Hope this is what you wanted to know!

Television is not recognizing HDMI inputs

there is a possibility that there might have been a power surge sent over hdmi into the hdmi board on the tv. if on your model the hdmi board is seperate from the sine board then youll have a cheap replacement if not its gonna cost you roughly 300-400 is my guess.

call your repair guy

You have to use the scart connector for on screen menu settings. Go to the video option and enable HDMI and/or match resolution output to your set.
You did not mention the model of the TV so here is another scenario,
Just because the TV is 1 year old doesn't mean that it is a 1080p capable, you could have set the HDMI resolution settings to 1080p and you will not get any picture if your set cannot process the information.
