Hi,

I am pretty sure you need to have an Optical cable running from Your PS3 to your sound system...if you have one...

So basically you will have a HDMI cable running from your PS3 into your TV, another HDMI cable running from your TV into your sound system, then an optical cable running from the PS3 to the Sound system. I sadly own a HDDVD sound system but the optical cable tells it to accept the Blu Ray content.....

Go to your audio settings and make sure they are not set on the <optical out> or the <hdmi out> setting, set them to transmit the signal via scart

I beleive this answers the question. It was posted on the review on CNET.

The other disadvantage of the PS3 compared with standalone Blu-ray players is the lack of multichannel analog outputs, which means you'll need to have an HDMI-capable receiver to take advantage of high-resolution audio. Using an Optical cable from receiver to PS3 will very high quality sound. 5:1

Hi Bobba13,

 

I am attempting to help bu tI cannot bring up much with the Samsung Model number you gave.  Can your check and post a comment with more model number information.  The Model number you gave is closer to a DLP Television than a Plasma.

When I hook up my LG plasma to PS3 and Cable box, I don't get any sound or colour on the PS3. The TV /cable box works fine. Any ideas on the wiring?


What type of connections are you using? HDMI? Component? Composite? What audio? HDMI? Optical Digital? Analog audio?

Are you saying you get video from the PS3, but it is in Black&White only? Is there an NTSC/PAL selector on the PS3? If so, it may be set wrong. Set to NTSC if you're in the United States.

50' philips plasma tv has sound but picture is distorted


I sugest you to change the video resolution settings on the PS-3 to see if TV sets to any one resolution...if you have any other video out (analog from PS3)...connect the out to TV and check video at different resolutions. If PS3 has Deep Color settings turn it OFF.

Sound keeps cutting out momentarily on ps3 connected to samsung plasma tv via hdmi cable


Make sure game disk is clean and scratch free. Try and hook up the video with original AV cables (Red,Wht,Ywl) and unplug HDMI.Try another HDMI cable. If none of these help you could have bigger problems. Good Luck.

Just bought a 50 panasonic viera, when we hook up ps3 on hdmi cable, we have sound but no picture.


Plasma TV normally do not have the resolution required for PS3 unless the plasma TV is fullHD( 1920x1080p) pixels.

HD Ready Plasma = 1024 x 768p
PS3 Outputs = (fullHD)1920x1080 or (HDReady) 1280 x 720p.

LCD TV accepts the resolution matches the resolution the PS3 is outputting.
