PS3 not working thru HDMI cable

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 have exactly the same problem. Works sometimes, play the PS3 with no problems, then the next time I turn on the console, the TV (Samsung) says there is no connection! It's really bizarre. I have tried two different HDMI cables and this doesn't make any difference. Really frustrating.

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.

SOURCE: PS3 not working through HDMI cable

Hi Badgeman,

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.

Hi. Please help. I'm using sony Bravia klv-s3210,


Change the resolution for the picture to match the resolution from the PS3. It probably will never work as VGA does not support HDMI resolution.

Ps3 plays audio but does not show image on tv


Well you can just use the hdmi cable if you're going both audio and video in to your tv. With your hdmi cable you get the best quality for both.

But in anycase, it seems that your PS3 is set up to output video via HDMI cable. To reset our video output settings, simply power down your PS3 (turned off) and hold down the power button until you hear the second beep. (around 5-10 secs) Power back up and hopefully you'll have video via your av cable. Hope this helps.

HDMI Port


you will have to look at the manual, but sometimes Audio isn't transmitted on HDMI cable,( I know it makes no sense). sometimes you will have to also use the digital optical audio cable, or SPDIF coax didital cable. I had to use the Di

As for your PS3 I had simillar issue, the PS3 doesn't Automattically adjust from analog, to component, to HDMI. If you get a signal thru the Reg RCA plugs, if you plug in the HDMI cable at the same time, then go to the system settings and change the type of plug you want to use, choose the HDMI, and the screen should flicker then show the signal from the HDMI, then just power off and/or unplug the analog cables, and you are using HDMI. hope this helps, if so thanks for the ratings

No surround sound, when playing blue ray films using ps3


Hi there,

Im guessing you are using a HDMI cable,

HDMI cables struggle to carry audio...

you will need a componet cable, this is basicly the same quality, and all you do is plug the audio cable part into the surround sound system and done.

Hope this helps

Sound skipping while playing Blu Ray


HI, make sure the audio out put on the ps3 is set to hdmi and set to stream dolby digital,aac, dts, etc,then set audio input on your 696 to hdmi,also check that audio out for hdmi is set to off in the hardware menu on your amp,if you still have problems use the optical out on the ps3 as the ps3 does not out put hd master audio or dolby true hd only pcm, you will still get dolby digital.

hope this helps.

Connect PS3 for playing/viewing blue-ray thru surround sound


I just finished setting up my system last night and was facing similar problems with sound/video from my PS3. The only option I could get working was to have the HDMI cable connected from the PS3 to the TV and then connect the Optical cable to the receiver for sound. I was under the impression that HDMI handles sound and video but for whatever reason the PS3 does not agree.

I have DTS sound and fantastic picture now through my PS3, hope this helps.

Cheers

Hello can you help with this error!


When you switch from one cable connection to another (Hdmi to AV etc) you need to reset the PS3 to its default settings. Basically what is happening is, your PS3 is set to HDMI, so when you plug in AV cables it doesn't know it. So you have to reset it. Hook your PS3 up to whatever cables (make sure system is fully off) then hold the front power button down for a few seconds.

Doing this will reset the display settings. You can then go into the XMB (main menu) and choose your connection. Although the PS3 should do this during the start up on its own.

Hope this helps.
