Re: hdmi option is no working

Look people have you ever heard that old saying, "you get what you pay for"? Well there you have it. I also bought one of these cheap Protrons and have the same HDMI problem. Luckily I bought an extended warranty with it so it is still covered until 2010. I took my tv to a repair shop a week ago and even THEY can't get parts for this tv. So needless to say ShonNBC will eventually have to give me a new comparable tv or my money back. The repairman says it's the pc board and that he has the hardest time finding parts for these cheap tv's, if at all.
I think Shopnbc should stand by all of the products that they sell. Or just stop selling cheap stuff that they know they can't repair. It'll probably take a month before they figure out that there are no parts to be found. Until then I'm out a tv. Remember, don't buy cheap bargain tv's anymore.

How to you connect PS3 to to model 37PD5000

Good day!!!

Please try this procedure to connect the PS3 to TV..

The PS3 has a Blu-ray drive that can be used not only for playing games but also for watching high-definition movies. The best way to connect a PS3 to a high-definition viewing device such as a video projector is through the PS3's high-definition multimedia interface (HDMI) output. The HDMI connection can transmit up to 1080p high-definition from the PS3 to the video projector using a single cable. Attaching and setting up the HDMI cable will only take a few minutes and will let you watch high-definition video from the PS3 on the video projector.

  1. Connecting HDMI
    • Attach one end of the HDMI cable to the HDMI output connector of the PS3. Turn the HDMI cable around if it does not slip right into the HDMI output, because the HDMI cable can only fit into an HDMI connector one way.
      Attach the other end of the HDMI cable to the HDMI input connector that is on the video projector. Make sure both sides of the HDMI cable is securely pushed into the connectors of the PS3 and of the video projector. Turn on the video projector. Press the "Menu" button on the video projector's remote. Navigate to the "Sources" setting on the video projector's Menu. Select "HDMI" from the "Sources" setting. Press the "Menu" button on the remote control again to exit the Menu.
    Adjusting the PS3
    • Turn on the PS3. Wait for the "Home" menu to appear on the video projector, although the quality of the video seen from the video projector will be muddied and dark. Navigate from the "Home" menu to the "Systems" icon using the game controller and select the "Display Settings" tab. Choose "Video Output Settings" from the list presented in the screen that appears. Press the right side of the directional pad on the game controller to move to the next screen.
      Choose "HDMI" from the list presented in the screen that appears. Press the right side of the directional pad on the game controller to move to the next screen. Choose "Automatic" from the list presented in the screen that appears. Press the right side of the directional pad on the game controller to move to the "Confirmation" screen. Press the "X" button on the game controller to make the settings active. Return to the PS3's "Home" menu.
    Watching the PS3
    • Insert a Blu-ray disc into the slot at the front of the PS3. Wait as the Blu-ray disc begins to play the video content on the video projector from the PS3 through the HDMI cable.

What is Hdmi used for and how to use it

HDMI is a high definition video/audio cable. It is used on newer tv's and surround sound receivers. You need to make sure that your TV supports HDMI before you can use it.

How do i connect a playstation 3 to a philips tv

The PlayStation 3 (PS3) is a high-definition gaming console that supports both standard AV connections and high-resolution connections (such as HDMI). Most of the older Philips TVs come with a standard AV input. Newer, flat-panel Philips TVs include standard AV inputs and high-resolution inputs. To get the best video quality out of your PS3, using an HDMI connection is recommended if the option is available. The PS3 does not include an HDMI cable, only a standard AV cable

Standard AV
  • 1 Turn off the PS3.
  • 2 Connect the flat end of the PS3 AV cable into the "AV Multi Out" port on the back of the PS3.
  • 3 Connect the "red," "white" and "yellow" prongs on the opposite end of the PS3 AV cable into the corresponding "red," "white" and "yellow" AV inputs on the TV (usually located on the side or in the back).
  • 4 Press the "Source" button on the Philips TV remote.
  • 5 Select the "AV" video display mode.
  • 6 Turn on the PS3. The PS3 logo will appear on the screen.
  • HDMI Connection

    Acoustic Solutions 26'' HD TV cannot play PS3 blue ray films

    I have recently brought the same TV and had the same problem but I've mangaed to find a soultion.

    The automatic setting for Blu Ray on PS3 is Full HD (1080p) but the Acoustic Solutions TV is HD ready (720p). For PS3 games it will automattically change settings for you to 720p. This is why this works straight away but Blu Ray doesn't.


    You need to plug in your PS3 using the scart contection, then on the ps3 menu go to settings > display settings > HDMI. You will then need to attach the HDMI cable and manually set up
    HDMI by checking the 720p option and deselect 1080p.

    That should then play Blu Rays too. You don't lose too much quality as 720p works nearly as well as 1080p on smaller TVs.

    Unable to display HD device (PS3) on HDMI screen

    Press the INPUT button on the remote or TV control panel until you find HDMI.
    When you turn on the PS3 keep your finger on the power pad until an HDMI message apears on the screen.
    This should FixYa.

    I am a TV repair technician and what you are experiencing with your plasma and PS3 is a HDMI compatibility problem. The Philips plasma and the PS3 electronic handshaking (EDID) are not right. This happens alot with an older version of HDMI like 1.1(Philips Plasma) and a newer version of HDMI 1.3 (PS3). A tv firmware or PS3 firmware update will not resolve the problem. I would recommend using the HD component video cables and that should work just fine for playing High Definition BluRay movies.

    it sounds like there is a problem with either the output on the PS3 or the input on the circuit board of the TV. I would try a reset on the PS3 first. Also make sure that there are no other video or audio cords plugged into the PS3 because this will cause the PS3 not to send the signal via the HDMI.

    Dell w3000 & PS3

    This may not be DVI issue.
    I connected DVD player HDMI ----> DVI ( Dell W3000) LCD TV.
    Later I found that Dell TV version of DVI does not support HDCP protocol ( High Definition Content Protection protocol). So I could not play HDMI to DVI movies from my DVD player instead I use Y Pb Pr -- this works ok.

    Hope this helps... I am not use PS3 enforces HDCP - I assume Sony linked with Sony Pictures would enforce HDCP on HDMI cable.
