I just received a ps3 60 gig with a hdmi cable to play on my new hd tv. When you turn it on, a screen saying a hdmi device has been detected, would you like to enable it comes on. I click ok then nothing a grey screen with no menu and a non functioning x prompt is all you get. You cant do anything except turn it off and on again go thru an AV with no hd :(. I have tried the turn it off and hold the standby button for a few seconds to self install but no luck! Can you help me please! Thankyou Amanda Steel.

If you recently moved the PS3 from one tv to another, it's setup to work on that other tv.
Press and hold the power button on the PS3 until you hear a beep. This should default the video output to whatever is plugged in and the PS3 should output normally via the HDMI connection.
Hello there. There's a few possibilities. First, the obvious, do you have it set to 1080P in the Display Settings options? Secondly, are you using an HDMI cable? You need to be using HDMI to play games in full 1080P. I use the component cables (The red, green and blue ones) for my PS3 and when I'm on the XMB (that's the PS's desktop so to speak) it's displayed in 1080P but games will not play in 1080P, only 720P. Any old HDMI cable will do the trick, so don't get suckered by the price if you are going to pick up a cable!
Try connecting the PS3 to your TV with a scart cable first and go to the appropriate channel. The problem you are facing is probably because the default output is not HD. So you must change it to HD you can do this by going on your PS3 display settings, whilst your operating on standard definition, AV1 or something like that. When the you are on display settings plug the HD cable in the PS3 while still being on AV1 and then plug the cable in, this may prompt a message saying that a HDMI device has been detected and you can change to HD, if this message appears switch to the HDMI output and then select yes and automatic on the PS3 for optimal settings in HD. If the message does not appear then select the HD output yourself after plugging the HDMI cable in and then change to the channel and do the same.
ok here's what you do. Hook up your ps3 to your hd via hdmi cable then turn the tv on first. Then turn the power on to your ps3 and switch tv to hdmi. wait a while then a screen should come up and you should see and screen where it says an hdmi device is connected do u want to accept theses settings say yes. sometimes the "handshake" doesn't happen properly. If u already know this or have tried this it could be that your tv needs a firmware update, happened to me.
Well it might be becuase your ps3 is european. Im no expert on the matter, but when i bought an hdmi cable and hooked it up to my hd compatible tv, i switched to the hd input (which happened to be input4 on my tv) and a message popped up saying that the ps3 has detected hd output, would you like to change settings? and it did it automatically after i hit yes.
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.
