    Thought I might have the infamous Sony XBR green screen problem. However, the green screen is only present when using HDMI for cable box. I was sucessfully using hdmi for (fat) PS3 and cable box until yesterday. Had been using this setup for 3 months.

    Can see and hear both cable and PS3 using component video with analog audio cables. Whats the problem with hdmi going directly to KDS-R60XBR1 from cable box and PS3?

Ressetig the ps3 on a new tv

Sounds like the Tv your using is faulty. Its could have hardware failure. You did say it PS3 was working on hdmi on a plasma. If your using the default hdmi cable that came with ps3 that also can be faulty. I have always had problems with the default hdmi so i bought a new one that was not SONY and it works beautifully. Another thing the black screen with green is a video cable or graphics issue.

Does this tv work if there is no ps3 connected? if so i recommend using the standard PS3 Component AV Cable. see if that will let you reset your ps3.

When playing regular dvdson my ps3, the screen will sometimes go black for just a second or two then come back on. I sometimes notice a red or green flash of color right before the pic goes out or comes...

Ok I have had this happen a few times before. What I do to fix it is disconnect the HDMI cable while everything is still on and playing and then re-insert the cable back into the TV. This re-configures the HDMI signal and should hopefully stop this problem.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa

nope.  While a true video-phile will insist that HDMI is better than the 5-wire jack, I can't tell the difference.

HDMI inputs stopped working

I had the same problem with the HDMI connected to my HD cable box DVR. We called the cable company and he changed the box and the problem remained. He said there was something wrong with my TV.  The component (5-wire) jacks on input 5 work fine.  A few months later i got the 'green tint" problem and the tech came out to replace the whole optical box.  I asked about the HDMI problem and he said that the Sony protocol for HDMI is the problem. It will "talk" to some hardware and not others. He has not found a fix, except to use the other A/V inputs and abandon the HDMI (#7) input.
