Are you using an HDMI cable? If not, your best option is to get one online, because they go for about $59-99 at retail stores.
If you are using an HDMI cable, be sure you are using a resolution compatible with your TV. In display options, when you choose HDMI, you should find a list of checkboxes with resolutions (420p, 720i, etc). Personally, my TV only works up to 1080i, because it doesn't have progressive scan (p). The PS3 may be trying to set it to 1080p which your TV can't handle. Try out different resolutions until it works.

Hii,

Try this out:

Go to the display settings in the settings menu. Pick HDMI for your video output and follow the steps to set your screen resolution. When I accepted the video settings I was taken automatically to the audio settings options. If you’re not given this option just go to the set audio output settings and enter this screen. Pick the optical connection and follow the screens choosing the audio options that match your receiver. DD and DTS.
At this point you should have video to your TV through HDMI and audio to your receiver through the optical cable.

Goodluck,
please dont forget to rate me as fixya..

55 inch thorn when on smart TV the screen is purple the output mode is set on 480CVBS and the screen is purple when I choose 576CVBS The screen is black I can't seem to get the smart tv option back


If your screen is purple, this indicates that your HDMI cable has a poor connection. First, try reinserting the HDMI. Second, try replacing it. Also, try a different HDMI input.

How do I hook up a playstation 3 to my mitsubishi medallion hd 1080


The best way to hook up is via the HDMI port. Connect a HDMI cable from the PS3's HDMI port the tv's HDMI port. As soon as you power the PS3 and tv on, you should see the initial setup screen.If it does not dispay press and hold the power button of the PS3 for about 5-10 seconds till you hear a couple of beeps and the initial setup screen. After that its just following on screen instrucions to choose your language, resolution(1080i for best quality), aspect ratio(16:9 works best for large screen tvs) etc., If there is some setting that you are unsure about as to what you should choose, let me know and I will help you with that.

Just bought a ps3 two weeks ago. Played games just fine and everything worked well. We watched a movie last night. Turned off the system and went to bed. The next morning we tried turning it on but it...


This may be a simple fix. Do you still have the original cable that came with it for the video OUT? Plug this back into your playstation and TV while leaving the HDMI cable connected.
check now both HDMI channels and AV/Composite options on your source selection this should give you the display,
Now what we need to do is setup your HDMI output again.
From the menu bar,
  • Go to settings
  • Display Settings
  • Video output settings
  • choose HDMI
if you have the choice to choose OK choose it. If your screen goes blank go through your HDMI channels again and if the Playstation screen is there then select OK,
Then you can remove the composite cable again

Screen goes black


sounds like you're using an HDMI cable, and the cable is broken. That's exactly what happens when HDMI cables break, a few of those 0s and 1s don't make it to the TV every once and a while, and the TV goes black and the audio dies.

or

go to system update and choose online update. an optional ps3 firmware 3.01 fixes this issue

also, I had a similar situation a while back. Anytime I loaded any disk (game or movie) it would just go black and freeze. I had to do a system reset (where it reloads everything and you lose your data). You can back everything up before that and restore it once you are done. It has worked fine for nearly a year since then.

JVC LT-32DS75SJ issue with HDMI


Try this

1. Turn ON TV
2. Connect PS3 to TV HDMI input
3. select TV HDMI input for PS3
4. turn OFF PS3 if it is ON
5. Press and hold the [I/O]Power button until the PS3 until you get the "HDMI Detected" message.

Also, this TV has a circuit that deactivates the HDMI if the rear cover is removed. It is possible the HDMI may have been turned OFF. This is reset in the service menu of the TV.
