Try connecting the ps3 to the HDMI only, now when the ps3 is off and all but the single red light is on rest your finger on the on button for about 8 seconds, as soon as you touch it it will turn on but just wait a bit and you'll here the a second beep- this should reset your ps3's video output settings. Try it out, it works for me when i go back and forth from av to HDMI.

Please remember to rate my response if helpful.

How do i get my hdmi to work for my ps3 system


Note: How to reset video output settings
If you are attempting to change to an HDMI cable from a different video cable or if the video output settings do not match those required for the display in use, the screen may stay black. If the screen stays black for more than 30 seconds, you may need to reset the video output settings of the PS3.

To reset video output settings:

  1. Turn the PS3 system off by holding the Power button on the front of the console till you see the power light turn red.
  2. Then hold the power button on the front of the console for at least five seconds until you hear a second beep to turn the system on again. The video output settings will automatically be reset to the standard resolution.

Minimum Requirements

  • PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system
  • SIXAXISTM wireless controller (and USB cable)
  • AC power cord
  • HDMI cable1 (sold separately)
  • TV or display monitor with HDMI port and capable of displaying picture in HD resolution
  • Updated system software installed on your PS3
    Visit PS3 System Software Update to download and install the most recent version.
  • TV "Input" or "Video" channel for the HDMI port
    You need to know the TV "Input" or "Video" channel for the HDMI port on your TV. For instance, if your TV has multiple "Input" or "Video" channels, (i.e., "Input 1", "Input 2", "Input 3", etc.), you will need to toggle through each "Input" channel on your TV until you find the correct channel that displays the HDMI picture. This is important to remember, especially if you do not see the HDMI picture after you connect the cable and configure the PS3 settings. Please refer to the TV instruction manual for more information.

Samsung TV Is Not Picking Up A Playstation 3 HDMI Signal


If you are able to connect your PS3 to another TV using the same HDMI cable that would rule out your PS3, if it works.....or
does the PS3 itself have any settings that perhaps need to be set to an HDMI output as opposed to Composite or SCART etc?
Also have a look at the HDMI settings in theh TV menu too.

Help with insignia 24 inch flat screen? the av channel will not show the channel where i can play my ps3?at?


It sounds like yoru PS3 has stopped handshaking with your tv. It can happen. It's possible your brother disrupted the connection by unplugging the PS3 before it was shut down. You can try turning on the PS3 first, and then turning on the tv, or vice versa. If that doesn't work, you may need to invest in a cheap HDMI splitter, to plug the PS3 into, and then send the signal from the splitter to the TV. It has happened to me with a computer with the same hardware, once with an LED tv, and once with my surround sound receiver, completely out of the blue. You can try switching HDMI cables, sources, doing putting the tv into maintenance mode and resetting the software. If none of that works, your only option may be to use an HDMI splitter. I did extensive research and read numerous reviews before I settled on this model, due to many recommendations:
ViewHD 2 Port 1x2 Powered HDMI Mini Splitter for 1080P & 3D ' Model: VHD-1X2MN3D
It's available on Amazon here:
Amazon com ViewHD 2 Port 1x2 Powered HDMI Mini Splitter for 1080P 3D Model...
Just in case your HDMI cable was damaged when your brother unplugged it, go ahead and get yourself a decent HDMI cable. The Amazon HDMI cables work just fine.

Have your tried a different plug HDMI plug on your TV? Maybe bring your PS3 to a friend who has HDMI and try it on his TV. What about a diffferent HDMI cable?

Could also be your HDMI on your PS#, but try these other simple tasks first.

Good Luck
