    the back pluggin where the cable inserts into could be messed up, or maybe just clogged with dust and the signals can't be recieved from the console to the TV.

    Just look to see if you can see any visual damage or a clog, otherwise u may just need to get it repaired

I am unable to get a picture on hdmi when i connect my ps3, but am able to get sound when i use ps3 controller. any ideas ?


Steps
  1. Step 1 Check for an HDMI port Check the back of your television for an HDMI port and refer to your owner's manual for your television's resolution. A resolution of 1080p offers the highest quality.
  2. Most PS3 systems support 1.3 HDMI, but older systems may need a software update from the 1.1 or 1.2 version.
  3. Step 2 Disconnect cables Disconnect all the cables and adapters from the back of your PS3, and then unplug your TV to reduce the risk of shock as you work.
  4. Step 3 Connect HDMI cable Connect the HDMI cable. Reconnect the power cables on both the TV and the PS3 system.
  5. Step 4 Hold power button Hold down the power button until the PS3 beeps and continue holding it for an additional five seconds until the system makes a second beep.
  6. The Playstation 3 should detect the high definition cable and automatically adjust the settings to give you the best picture and sound possible.
  7. Step 5 Test the connection Test the connection. If the HDMI cable isn't working, turn everything off and reconnect the original cables to manually change the settings.
  8. Step 6 Adjust the settings Turn the system back on, select Settings, Display Settings, Video Output Settings, and then HDMI. Repeat the process for your Audio Settings. You can now experience your games with the highest video and audio quality available.

How to connect sony ps3 to toshiba 32av500a


Use any HDMI cable to to this.

Connect cable to the "HDMI" port on the back of the PS3. Connect the other side of the HDMI cable to the "HDMI" port on the Toshiba TV. If the Toshiba TV has multiple HDMI ports, make note of which port you plugged the HDMI cable into.
Change the Toshiba TV to its "HDMI" video display mode. Press the "Power" button on the PS3 to turn the console on. The PS3 will automatically detect the HDMI cable. Select "Yes" to use the audio and video from the HDMI cable. Select "Yes" to have the PS3 automatically use the optimal settings for the Toshiba TV. Select "Yes" to accept the recommended resolution. Press the "X" button to save the settings

PS3 HDMI No picture nor audio


  1. Make sure the HDMI cable is connected to the HDMI OUT port on the back of the PLAYSTATION 3 system. Connect the other end of the HDMI cable into the HDMI Input port of the TV or display monitor.
  2. While the PLAYSTATION 3 system is in standby mode (red light on the front of the system), hold down the touch-sensitive power button on the front of the system until the system goes into standby mode again . (So the light cycle would go from: red light --> green light --> then back to red light). This will ensure that you have held down the power button long enough to reset the Video Output Settings.
  3. Turn on the PLAYSTATION 3 system and once the system finishes powering up, the Video Output Settings will automatically reset to the standard resolution (or detect the current display output settings of your TV/monitor).

No display


Hi,The settings on the PS3 are sending the video signal throught the HDMI port. Either go through the XMB via system settings, display settings,or if you only have a low def tv then hold the power for 5 seconds (when you turn it on i belive) and it resets it. You may have to adjust the audio settings at the same time, because if you pressed yes when the HDMI was first connected, you agreed to send the audio signal via HDMI as well.

PS3 hdmi only working on some displays


I have noticed using an HDMI cable that with some of the newer tvs you have to set up the tv also to enable HDMI for a game system. Like you said before internet tv and blueray dvd player work fine. Try adjusting the settings on the tvs themselves. I have a 50in DLP mitsubishi, and had a very troubling time getting my ps3 to work on that particular tv set while it worked flawlessly on other sets. And what I had to do was enter my tv setup menu and then power on my ps3 with both my AV and HDMI cables connected, it would pick up the AV first. Then I would alter the video settings on the PS3 for HDMI, and unplug the AV cable. Exit the tv menu and then reenter it. Then I had to setup my HDMI port from the tv to game in order for it to work, where you can set options ar usually like cable/dvd/sat, and so on. Without my TV being set to game that way it would not work. Try this and see if it helps. Good Luck.

Issues Displaying picture from HDMI upconversion


I've posted this other places. Hope it helps.

My HT-S6100 had a similar problem with my DVD player and some times with my Cable/DVR box. The signal wasn't getting received at the TV. So, first I changed the input jacks my DVD and Cable box are plugged into on the receiver (e.g. from HDMI 1 & HDMI 3 to HDMI 2 & HDMI 4). Second, I reprogrammed the Input Assignments to match (e.g. HDMI in 2&4). Third, I deleted any Input Assignments that weren't applicable. For instance, I'm only using HDMI connections, but there were Digital and Component Input Assignments programmed in. When I say I deleted them, I actually set them to "----" (just scroll through the options and you'll find this.) Finally, I turn on my video/audio sources (PS3 in your case) and let them load/warm up before I turn on my Onkyo receiver. It seems to be working. Good luck.

Ps3 has no video


I would first try changing the inputs if there is an HDMI cable connected the PS3 will detect it and change the output to HDMI. Make sure when you connect any HDMI cables that the power is off on ALL Units that are using HDMI. Connect the cables then power up all units. Change TV and Receiver or Amp to correct HDMI Inputs. On the PS3 go to Display Settings over to the left of the Crossbar. Select output settings and select HDMI and everything after select AUTOMATIC! Then Set your Audio (Also use Auto) and Save by pressing X.  Good Luck!

Sharp Aquos LC-32B20E wont display a PS3 output via HDMI


kitconnolly,

I too went through this problem.

Step 1 - Plug in your "composite" cables and the HDMI cable to the PS3. Obviously, the "composite" cable are the ones that came with the system. You need to start with them as the default connector.

Step 2 - After connecting the "composite" cable and the HDMI cable to the PS3, connect the other ends to your TV.

Step 3 - Power on your PS3

Step 4 - Select display settings-->video output settings

Step 5 - Change from the current video cables to HDMI. (Your tv has different inputs. When you switch to HDMI in the PS3, you will have to switch your TV to the HDMI input that it is connected to, to get a picture)

Step 6 - Be quick, the PS3 will display a "test" for 30 seconds. You need to switch your tv to the correct HDMI input and press "X" on your controller to accept the change.

Let me know how this works for you.

Playstation 3 Does not display on TV using HDMI or regular video cable. senerio: My son hook it up using HDMI Cable to my bedroom sony flat screen tv to watch a blue ray movie and play some games. which...


I posted to your problem with a similar one. I was able to get my PS3 to work by:

1.) Powering down both the PS3 and ViewSonic LCD
2.) Unplugging the power cables to both PS3 and LCD
3.) Waiting at least 10 or more seconds
4.) Plugging in the power cables to both PS3 and LCD
5.) Turning on the ViewSonic LCD
6.) Turning on the PS3 and holding down the power button until the beep

After this sequence I heard the bootup audio and the menu appeared on the screen- which detected the HDMI connection to my LCD.

Very odd.. I've had my PS3 in the same place for months and just today this happened.

I wanted to post my success. Best of luck!

Toshiba 32AV500U HDMI issues


The Toshiba 32AV500U cannot display 1080p. Hook up your PS3 to your computer monitor, provided that it can display 1080p, or some other TV that can, then change your Video Output settings under Settings> Display Settings and uncheck 1080p, which will allow the PS3 to display in 1080i. Once you do that, then hook up the Toshiba via HDMI and it will work with no problem.
