Source list for Samsung LCD TV when hooking up PS3

I have used HDMI cable from PS3 console to my home theatre receiver. The receiver was already hooked up to the TV by HDMI cable. However when setting up the TV input source list should I be setting it up under AV-2? I have under HDMI - home theatre DVD, under AV-1 a DVD recorder, Air-3 a VCR and Component - TV. I set it up under HDMI and Game and it worked the first time but the second time the PS3 menu will not come on. Also should the wireless controller be plugged in by USB each time the unit is turned on and would this affect the menu on the PS3 from not appearing?

Got a PS3 hooked upto a Samsung 40" LCD TV via

I would suggest trying a different TV, and maybe see if you still have any Component or Standard Definition Composite cables to connect the PS3 to the TV and see if it works that way. I would assume you did this when you said you reset the resolution on your PS3, but turn it off, then hold in the power button until it beeps twice in a row. (Just in case) Make sure everything is plugged in twice and your TV is on the right input. If none of that works, there may be something wrong with the graphics adapters on your PS3 in which case you will need to contact Sony about fixing it.

I have a HDMI problem with my PS3. I have it

You will need to turn on the PS3 and hook it up with rca so you can access the console menus. Turn it on and get to the main dashboard. 1. Go to Settings -> Display Settings (not video) 2. Select [ Video Output Settings ] 3. Select HDMI 4. Select Resolution 5. Select Screen Size 6. Save the settings 7. Reboot the console. This should resolve the problem. We've seen PS3 consoles that would not reset by performing a hard reset. We were able to resolve this issue through the settings menu though. Let me know if it is still giving you issues.Hank GATpro Repairs

PS3 surround sound

You will need the optical cable. My receiver only passes video through the hdmi. So I hooked up the HDMI cable to the tv, and the optical cable to the receiver. Once that is done you have to go to the audio settings for the PS3 and chose audio through the optical.
