You probably need to reset the output settings. This may happen if you've used your PS3 on a regular TV with an RCA connector.

To reset your PS3's video/audio settings, turn off the PS3, then hold down the power button until it beeps a second time.

The problem might be your TV. How old is your TV and who is the manufacturer?

No sound game plays fine


Hi.

Check sound settings, but more than anything else check the sound cable. If you use the component (red green and blue) cables or if you use the yellow video cable you will need an external audio connection. The audio cable must be connected to the right input on TV or home theater. Most consoles allow use the red and white audio connection cables (AV), there is also an optical audio cable that can be used.
If you use HDMI you do not necessarily need external audio cable. In that case ensure that HDMI audio is not disabled on TV or console settings. Test using a different HDMI port on TV. Do not forget to turn power off when you connect or disconnect cables. A TV can easily be damaged by disconnecting cables with power on (HDMI carries +5V).

Regards.

Ginko.

I cant figure out how to listen to the radio while i play video games through hdmi cables


In order for you to be able to have a different audio source from your video, i.e.; have "radio sound" instead of "video game sound", you have to connect your HDMI cables from the game console directly to the TV/Monitor.

The reason for this is that video and audio are carried simultaneously over a single connection on HDMI. If you make your HDMI connections through a receiver to a monitor, whenever you change your input to the radio you also lose your video game picture.

So to summarize;

Power off your receiver and game console.

Disconnect your game console HDMI cable from the receiver.

Reconnect the HDMI cable to the TV.

Turn on the TV, then the receiver, then your game console. Then change your receiver input to the radio.

How to connect nintedo to plasma tv


Hi,things you will need,
  • Video game console
  • HDMI cable
  • Audio/visual cable.
  1. Plug in your video game console's power source.
  2. Connect one end of the game console's audio/visual cable into the corresponding slot on the console if you have an older game console. If you have a newer console, insert one end of an HDMI cable into your console's "HDMI OUT" port.

  3. Plug the red and white ends of the audio/visual cable into the corresponding red and white audio inputs located on the back of your Vizio plasma TV if you have an older game console. Plug the yellow cable into the yellow "Video In" input. Depending on which model of Vizio TV you have, the yellow input may be located either right next to the audio inputs or it could be located a few ports away.

  4. Plug an HDMI cable into one of your TV's "HDMI IN" ports, if you have a newer console.

  5. Turn on your video game console and your Vizio plasma TV. Press the "TV/VIDEO" button on your remote to cycle through the various inputs. You should eventually get to an input that's displaying your video game console's home screen.
I think that will do.

Have nice day.

HTMI errors on the following devices DVD Blue-ray HDMI connected; CD Not HDMI connected; VCR Not HDMI connected; satellite works OK HDMI to Yamaha - HDMI to TV NO HDMI error displayed; GUI does not display...


You have to use Component Video on this unit. HDMI will not "Handshake" and pass thru. This was HDMI's first version "1.1a" and there is no fix. Use your receiver to switch audio via Coaxial or optical then use HDMI directly from BLURAY etc to your TV. The downside to this is how many HDMI inputs your TV has. It's an awesome receiver! Don't blame Yamaha!!! This issue is directly attributable to "HDMI" and their race to shelves before truly field testing the product. The current version of HDMI is 1.3b and soon to be 1.4 which includes ethernet capabilities.
I hate to be the bearer of bad news! If you would like an "in depth" look into the world of HDMI issues, Google HDMI problems or HDMI forums, and you can read for hours. Hope this helps

60GB PS3 had been hit by a power surge. HDMI not working.


hook up the ps3 thru the regular yellow composite and HDMI. Go into the settings and change the output to HDMI and then see if you can get video thru the HDMI, if you don't then the mainboard is bad and you would have to send it to Sony unless you can get your hands on another broken sony ps3 with a good main board.

I need to know how to run my ps3 thru the optical wire to my hdtv


Before you start ensure that you read the TV instruction manual to know which resolution supports it. Do not switch on the TV and your console

You can connect your Playstation 3 to your TV in three different methods:

  1. Connecting with an AV cable
  2. Connecting with an HDMI cable
  3. Connecting with an Optical Cable


Connecting with an AV Cable:


  1. You are supplied with a Composite AV cable which would typically look like the below image
  2. Connect the AV Multi Out Connector to the socket on the back of your PS3 Console.
  3. Match the colors of the Jacks with the connectors on the TV which says "Video in".




Connecting with an HDMI Cable:

HDMI cable is not supplied with the PS3. You need to purchase it seperately. This cable would enhance the audio-video quality of your TV.

  1. Just connect one end of the connector to the HDMI OUT connector socket on the back of the console
  2. Connect the other end to the socket on the back of your TV which says HDMI IN.



Connecting with an Optical cable:

You need to purchase an Optical cable if you wish to connect your PS3 console through a digital audio device (Home theater, AV receiver etc.,). You need to connect Video ouput seperately with a help of Video output cable (HDMI, AV Cable etc.,)

  1. Connect one end of the optical cable to "Audio Out" socket on the console
  2. Connect the other end to the audio receiver.


Note: You can also connect your console to the Internet to use the Playstation 3 internet capabilities. Here's how you do it:

The Playstation 3 only supports 10BASE-T, 100BASE-TX and 1000BASE-T type networks. It needs a High speed internet connection. Do not connect it to a standard telephone connection or cables that are not supported. It might cause a malfunction or damage to the system.

Hdmi no sound


Check your Sound Settings on the CrossMediaBar and make sure that you have the audio set to come thru the HDMI and not the component. That should do the job.
