Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

Problem Hi, I have a Sony Rear Projection TV (Wega KF50We610). I bought a Playstation 3 and so I took the HDMI that is plugged into my cable box and plugged it into the PS3. The picture is great but no sound. The message I get is "audio is not possible with this HDMI cable). Is this because the TV has an older composite connection (6 or 8 prongs like a computer hook up)? How do I get sound along with this great pic? BTW, I have a Dennon receiver that is hooked up to TV, DVD, etc. Thank you, Mark 267.226.1960

Re: Problem

I have my picture going through the hdmi and the sound going through the scart. plug the scart into the back of the ps3. then the white and red wire are into my tecnics sound system and it works perfectly you just need to set it up in the sound options in your ps3. which is very easy. just select scart in the sound options. hope this helps you.

Need Help

try connecting A/V rca cable first. go to ur diplay settings and then to video output settings in it select av multi. don't use HDMI settings let it automatically ask u when u plug in hdmi cable. Then switch to HDMI cable. I had a problem like this before with a ps3 that i had bought used. hdmi was set up and it took forever to set it up with rca cords. took many times power on and offs and unplugging video cords for it to reset. . not sure. Now when u plug in your hdmi on any tv it should automatically set up. and you have settings for a/v as backup. the other thing is it could be the just the port or cable.

Hd tv as no hdmi plug

There are PS3-components cables available out there (the Red/Green/Blue one) you can use to connect your PS3 to your TV and still get HDTV on your TV system. You should be able to get it where you bought your Playstation. Got one for 39.99$ CAN

Shadowing on screen

You should get a good surge protector. Sometimes some areas have a spike in the power. That will cause interference in the TV signal coming from your PS 3. Try out different surge protectors that should solve your problem.
