Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
I pinched my HDMI cable between the wall box and dry wall during installation which kinked the cable. I have not tried to use it yet but when I do I, should I expect problems. If so, how do I fix it? I found a repair kit online to replace the male connection.
Depending on how hard the cable was pinched you may or may not have problems HDMI cables are very insolated and it takes alot to damage one. However if there are problems the repair kits that you can buy online are very usefull and you will probably have to cut and replace the pinched part on the inside of the wires but the kits should have step by step instructions if not feel free to contact me for detailed instructions.

Tips for a great answer:
HDMI is available in several versions. The PS3 is compatible with HDMI version 1.3 or higher, which will take full advantage of Blu-ray Disc™ high-definition video. There are also "Type A" and "Type B" connectors. The PS3 uses the 19-pin Type A connector, which will allow resolutions up to 1080p.
The HDMI cable is not included with the PS3.
If you are using an adaptor (i.e., HDMI to DVI converter), try bypassing this adaptor and connecting the HDMI cable directly into the display.
Try connecting with the supplied AV Cable instead of the HDMI to see if you can get a successful installation. This will help determine where the problem may be with your particular HDMI setup and/or equipment.
Some older HDTVs may have issues with the copy protection protocols (HDCP) causing the handshake not being communicated between the TV and the PS3. Try resetting the TV by turning the TV and PS3 off, then unplug the TV power cord from the outlet and plug it back in. Then turn your TV and PS3 back on and see if the picture appears.
