When the display is via HDMI Games won't load?

When the display is via HDMI Games won't load, the screen will just go black as the disc begins to load but thats as far as it goes... but it plays Blu Ray Movies fine...?
I then have to restart the system and change the display to AV Multi Out in order to load the game.
Any ideas would be much appreciated.

    The TV supports 1080i, however the HDMI setup is done automatically and the PS3 picks the correct settings to match the TV.

Is your screen a full hd one ?
if not, verify your resolution settings in the ps3 system settings ; you may experience problems if you allow you system to run in a resolution not supported by your TV .

So my gf turned on ps3 selected netflix screen went black now i cant get vido video signal to tv via hdmi or av not even with the two.beep method


apparently the Netflix app wont load if a disc is not present in the drive. it doesn't matter what disc is in it. just ensure you put a disc in and then restart the system before trying to load Netflix again. works like a charm. was just playing around and figured it out. Netflix originally launched with a mandatory disc you had to have in the system for it to work but they've recently scrapped that requirement to the service however it seems the software is just programmed to check for a disc before loading as such you get a blank screen if there is no disc in the console.

After click on the game title. screen goes black


It is normal for the screen to go black for a couple of seconds once you click on the game title.
Although, for some games, the screen goes black for a longer period of time than other games. Another important factor that determines for how long the screen goes black is the health of your disc.
First of all, it is advised that you exercise patience and wait for a couple of minutes before trying anything. During this period of time, the game is trying to load all the necessary files required to run the game.
On the other hand, if the disc you are trying to play is not very clear or has scratches on its surface, this could make the game go on a black screen for longer than normal. So to prevent this from happening, make sure that the surface of our disc is very clean and is free from dust or scratches.
If you wait for about 5 minutes and it still doesn't work, then you can try ejecting the disc to see if it automatically quits the game and returns to the home screen. If it does, this means that the disc is probably bad and you are advised not to try loading it anymore as it could cause damage to your console.
Although you can try resetting the console if it still behaves this way before you confirm that the disc is bad. Below is the instruction oh how to do this.
Be sure to backup your settings/games saves by doing a System > Backup on your PS3 or you may lose your game saves! Also, this is a last resort procedure prior to exchanging/returning to sony.
1. Power Off the PS3 via the power switch in back and power back on w/switch.
2. Hold Power Button on the Front until you hear 3 beeps.
3. Then go through the initial setup and then run a full Format via System > Format. (will take approx 3 1/1 hours). You may need to have our AV cables ready if your using HDMI (in case HDMI isn't detected after initial reset).
4. Restore your backup you made prior to doing factory/hard reset (optional, if you created a backup).
Hope this was helpful? Please comment for more information and thank you for using Fixya.

When the display is via HDMI Games won't load, the screen will alter as if loading the game then it will flicker and go black.... But it plays Blu Ray Movies fine...? I then have to restart the system and...


It's a bit of a pain as you'll have to re-establish your initial internet setup ( this is where keeping old passwords, etc, comes in handy ! ), but the only solution that will work is by resetting your PS3 to ' first time use ' ( not back to factory condition though ).
This may be an unwanted slog but if you've accidently changed the settings and can't remember how or why at least you'll know the initial sttings should work.
If you don't want to do this, try going to the screen settings and adjust one at a time ( loading a game in between ), also if you have a scart lead fitted ( as well as the HDMI lead ) make sure it's in the audio out and not in ' video ' ( the audio out will be a circuit between an audio scart socket on your tv and the red and white leads going back to your audio output device : active subwoofer, etc , the yellow lead plugs into the scart lead from the console via a plug point adaptor which goes straight into the scart on the tv set ).
AV Multi Out should not have to be performed as the leads out devices are the only ones which should be pressed to set.
Hope this helps.
