Toshiba 20WLT not working with PS3

The PS3 has to be configured to put out HDMI or AV(RCA plug)output.The easiest way to switch between is to connect both cords to the same TV,so you can swap to the other ouput and verify it works.(In other words,if you had the PS3 set on HDMI,you have to connect with an HDMI cord unless you change it in the PS3's settings).I think this was an energy saving solution by Sony,bacause I'm sure they could figure out how to make both work at the same.

Hi our PS3 has no sound or picture. It does have the green power light on.

What is probably happening, is your PS3 is set for the wrong type of output. If you are using an HDMI cord, try switching to the AV cables that came with your PS3, and set your TV at the appropriate input to correspond with the AV hookups, and see if the picture works then.
If you are using the AV cables, it may have been set to HDMI accidentally. You need to use an HDMI cord, and hook the PS3 up to an HDMI compatible TV or monitor, and select the HDMI input. Once you get the picture working, go to Settings>Display Settings and set the display you wish to use.

What is the AV Net code for a PS3? Will it connect with my Hitachi 60V500A to Input 2 if I have the proper code?

AV Net is for controlling devices with your Hitachi remote. Your PS3 does not use standard IR or RF technologies for it's control, and uses Bluetooth instead.There is a Logitech Harmony adapter that will allow Harmony remotes to control the PS3 however it won't work with AV Net.

Your PS3 should hook up to your TV via Input 2 with no codes needed.

I have a ps3 60gb capatible for the ps2 I have it hooked up to the TV but its not showing anything on the TV I have the High Def connectors for the TV

It is a known problem with some high def connectors not working properly. The following should be checked before concluding there is a problem
1. Ensure you have your TV tuned to the right output station for as your ps3 is connected.(for example you cannot have your ps3 connected to the second set of av ports on your tv and your tv is on av1, it has to be on av2)
2. Cross-check the functionality of your ps3 using the default av cables that come with it so as to know if your cable or console is faulty.
3. Ensure that you high-def cables are properly connected.
If all the above prove abortive, you have to see a repairer to check-up your ps3 or tv

Everything connected, the screen shows but the

Try connecting the PS3 to your TV through a different port. For example, if you are using HDMI1 on your PS3, try HDMI2 or HDMI3.

Try a different cable. If you have a friend with a working cable try that.

Try a different output on the PS3. For example, if you are currently using the HDMI port, see if the standard composite or component output will work.

While convenient to plug things into an AV reciever, I find that just adds another link in the chain of devices that could go wrong.

Good luck.

Playstation 3 not working with older model Pioneer AV receiver

If you have set the component output on the ps3 for high def,ie 720p or 1080i and do not get a picture it sounds like the component input is not high def enabled on your amp,change the setting on ps3 to standard 576 output,or put picture into tv then sound into amp if you want to run 720p or 1080i.

Hope this helps.
