Try holding the power button on the PS3 for 5 seconds when turning it on. This will reset the default video mode. (The system might be set to component since you are using HDMI!)

Playstation 3 works fine useing the av hook up but won;t work with hdmi cable hook up.


First, make sure your TV is on the appropriate input for the plugged in HDMI cable. Once this is completed, turn your ps3 on. If the screen comes on and is black, turn the ps3 to standby (red light is on) and hold the front power button until the console beeps a second time. This will usually force the ps3 to recognize the hdmi input and will bring up the menu to configure the AV settings.

Trying to hook up playstation 3 with either HDMI cable or RCA cable Neither one is producing anything? WHat could be the problem?


For the HDMI your TV input for that HDMI input may be skipped you should check and make sure that it is not greyed out and that you can select it. For the RCA.... You should make sure that you are hooking it up right. You either have composite cable 1 yellow video and a red and either white or black left and right audio to Yellow video and Red and white on the TV, or you have component which will be red green and blue all three will be for video and you will need 2 more rca jacks for audio. It matters where you plug the red green and blue cables as well. getting them backwards either won't work or will give you a tinted picture.

Additionally, make sure that your TV doesn't share inputs. Some TVs will have Video 1 and it will be composite RCA and HDMI and you can select which to use. if it sais HDMI one and Video one you should be fine there if both say video one or the like they are likely shared

Hope this helps!

I just bought a Playstation 3 for the first time. I have it hooked up through HDMI using an HDMI to DVI converter to my TV. It looks great, but there is no sound. Even hooking the optical sound output to...


On your PS3, go to the Settings tab, then scroll down to the "Sound Settings".

Once in Sound Settings, select "Audio Output Settings"

Here you should have 3 options: HDMI; Optical Digital; and Audio Input Connector

Choose Optical Digital

You should be all set.

Also, make sure after doing this your stereo is on the correct channel.

Sound Clipping


Sounds like a faulty cable yes. Try it with the AV cables and see if the sound still is faulty. Or it could be the audio settings, make sure these are correct. And if you switch to AV make sure to make the appropiate changes to the sound settings again when you do change the cables. If not then it will be either your cable or one of the hdmi connectors tv or ps3. try hooking it up to another tv with hdmi.

I just bought a PS3 slim and hooked it up to my 65'' Toshiba DLP TV using a HDMI cable. The problem is i have picture but no sound. I have tried the settings and all seems to be fine, also tried different...


not 100% sure but check the manual for your tv it may be that you need a faster hdmi cable, as with having a larger tv it will work at a faster rate so the basic hdmi cables wont work.

PS3/HDMI Cable problem. PLEASE HELP


Make sure you have the TV on the right input. Make sure it is on HDMI, and if you have multiple HDMI inputs look at the number embossed on the one you are using for your tv. Then his "input" or it might be called "Source" on your tv's remote. Match the input on the tv to what you plugged into the back of the tv and you should get a picture.
