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.

SOURCE: av channel change

Hi, please check if there is enough air flow where tv's ventilation is placed.. Try to keep a pedestal fan close to the tv's air flow holes and check if it happening again.. i think this will mostly solves your problem. If you go with this to your service centre they will simply replace the Tuner,and will give you heavy bill. all the best sreejith

I have sound but no picture please help


Make sure that your cables are fully plugged in and pushed into both your PS3 and your PS3. If you are using a standard scart lead, make sure that all 3 connectors are fully pushed in and are intact.
If you are using a HDMI cable, just make sure it's pushed in fully on both ends. If it still does not work, trying getting a new HDMI cable or scart lead, as they may be damaged in some way.

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.

PS3 hdmi connection


With your PS3 on standby (red light) hold the on/off button down until it goes green and then back to red. This restores your PS3 to "factory settings", i.e. it is waiting for you to tell it how you want it to connect to your TV. Now disconnect any HDMI cables you may be trying to use and connect your PS3 to your TV via a scart connection. Now switch your PS3 on and turn to your AV channel and you should have both sound and pictures.

If you select the HDMI channel to watch a dvd does it do it then, if not disconnect both ends of the scart lead and reconnect or replace. If the scart lead is not in properly this could happen, when you switch on the player and play a disc your tv will automatically switch to the AV/Scart channel, but you are better off manually turning the TV over to the HDMI Hi-Def channel for DVD.
