Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
Hi, I am from the UK and hope you can help me with what I can only describe as a mystery! I have been playing my PS3 thru an HDMI cable on my 50" plasma TV for a few months without any problem. All of a sudden a couple of weeks ago....no picture or sound on HDMI channel. TV says 'no signal'. My sky satellite box can play through the HDMI socket on my TV OK so this kinda rules out the TV and the HDMI socket on the TV. HDMI cable has been tested and is OK. I even tried two other HDMI cables without success. So you would think the problem was with the PS3. Nope... I have another PS3 console which I have hooked up to an LCD TV thru an HDMI cable to my LCD TV in another room. This works fine. BUT, when I connect this other PS3 consoleto the Plasma (via HDMI), this doesn't work either! Both PS3 consoles work perfectly on my the LCD TV. Just so you know, my TV is set to HDMI as it always has been. I am currently playing the PS3 thru the regular audio/video cables but when I try to set the PS3 to HDMI on this channel,nothing happens. I've tried everything short of dropping it from a great height so can you guys help me out??? Look forward to hearin' from you. Many thanks. Badgeman!
I am having the same problem, so i called the mfg. of the tv and they told me to set the PlayStation to out put 1080i and not 1080p i don't think this is possible. my tv is a Hitachi and they are sending me an update card for the tv, hopefully this will fix the problem. Apparently its a problem with the tv not being able to receive a 1080p signal

I had a similar problem. Every time I launched a game the screen went black. This was because I went through the automatic HDMI setup, and I guess the TV lied about it's abilities. When I did this manually and selected accepted output signals (i.e. not 1080p, not Full HD) it all worked fine.

I repair PS3 Consoles and other Video games, It is apparent to me that you have what is ailing many of the PS3 systems, I am finding the HDMI socket is poorly soldered, and not well supported mechanically. I believe your HDMI socket need to be resoldered. Probably on both your PS3 Consoles. This is common. My service in the USA, and I do not believe it is reasonable for me to repair your PS3 since Shipping and all prohibits the service.

connect PS3 to TV
select HDMI channel on TV
press AND HOLD power button on PS3 until screen resolution selection page appears.
PS3 should now work.
had this problem, this solved it.
typical repairman looking for work :)
