Try connecting A/V rca cable first. go to ur diplay settings and then to video output settings in it select av multi. don't use HDMI settings let it automatically ask u when u plug in hdmi cable. Then switch to HDMI cable. I had a problem like this before with a ps3 that i had bought used. hdmi was set up and it took forever to set it up with rca cords. took many times power on and offs and unplugging video cords for it to reset. . not sure. Now when u plug in your hdmi on any tv it should automatically set up. and you have settings for a/v as backup. the other thing is it could be the just the port or cable.

No picture or vido


Ok. Hold down the on/off switch for at least 5 seconds (or until it beeps). It will reset the display settings to the original format. you have to do this when switching back and forth from HDMI to YRGB. This should fix the problems.

Hope it Helps

My ps3 doest display anything nor makes any sounds please help


Just a gander, but your PS3 may be set for HD output thus not displaying on your non HD television, your best bet in this case is to find an HD television, friend, coworker, etc, connect to it and switch the settings back to regular. Also if I understand correctly leaving the ps3 completely unplugged for 72 hours may also reset all settings. Good luck!

When i turn on my ps3 nothing appears on my television!!!


ok, put your ps3 in standby mode(solid red light) then hold the power button. Just keep holding it until the picture shows up, asking you if you want to set in to optimal video settings, in which you say yes. if it turns of before saying this, try again and again. if after a few tries it doesn't work, check the cables in the back of the system and tv to make sure they're plugged in fully. then check to make sure your tv is on the right video setting (video 1, 2, 3, digital output, etc.)

Acoustic Solutions 26'' HD TV cannot play PS3 blue ray films


I have recently brought the same TV and had the same problem but I've mangaed to find a soultion.

The automatic setting for Blu Ray on PS3 is Full HD (1080p) but the Acoustic Solutions TV is HD ready (720p). For PS3 games it will automattically change settings for you to 720p. This is why this works straight away but Blu Ray doesn't.

Solution

You need to plug in your PS3 using the scart contection, then on the ps3 menu go to settings > display settings > HDMI. You will then need to attach the HDMI cable and manually set up
HDMI by checking the 720p option and deselect 1080p.

That should then play Blu Rays too. You don't lose too much quality as 720p works nearly as well as 1080p on smaller TVs.

Optical inputs


In short yes!

If you have two optical inputs and two equipment (PS3 and HDVD) then you shouldnt have a problem at all. Just make sure you change the mode of the receiver to TV/SAT when you want to use the HDDVD. Your problem may be the video out put.

If i was you i would do the following:

1. Get rid of all your optical cables as you won't need it.
2. If your receiver support HDMI then by default HDMI will send both video and digital sound.
3. Plug the HDMI of the PS3 to the HDMI input of the receiver, plug the HDMI of the HDDVD player into the HDMI 2 of the receiver and plug 1 HDMI cable from the receiver to the tv/monitor you have.

That is the best set up so when you play PS3 you select dvd/ld and when you watch hddvd you select tv/sat.

However having said all that the fact that you have dvd/ld suggests you actually don't have HDMI at all on the receiver(...i just checked the specs of the receiver). Which means you will need to have 2 hdmi inputs for your tv and you will need to have the 2 optical connections.

But in short yes to your question.

hope this is not too confusing.

good luck
