SOURCE: Playstation turns on but TV says "no signal"

You could try the screen reset..... When the consoles in standby mode... press and hold the power button for over 5 seconds till you hear a diferent kind of beep and then it runs the optimal screen settings mode.. i hope this helps

SOURCE: my hdmi cable wont read

You may have a corrupt system file. With the system off, press and hold the power button on the front of the unit until it beeps three times. Take your finger off the power button and press and hold it again until it beeps two times and then three times in rapid succession. Connect your PS3 controller to the unit via a USB cable and select option two on the menu that will come up.
If this doesn't solve the problem, call Sony at 800-345-SONY for more help and they will walk you through more steps.

My console powers on. Light goes green. Controllers light up and stop blinking. Using HDMI cable. TV is connected to console. No signal being sent. TV working fine. Connected TV to notebook. No...

Have you tried replacing the HD-MI cable? there is a known issue with them. This sounds to me like the cable has mail functioned.
Any further questions feel free to ask.

Try changing the reselution on the PS3 to a lower setting when on the TV that is does not work on. Had the same problem and that fixed it. PS3 is sending a signal the TV can not read.

No signal on both EXTs on TV

Try a video reset. Turn the system to standby, where just the red power light is on. Then hold the front power button till it turns on, beeps twice, and shuts off. Then turn on normally.

The cord may have a short in the wiring. A pin in the connector could be missing. Or the PS3 hdmi socket could be bad. You should call Playstation Technical Support line at 1-800-345-7669 (1-800-345-SONY). If it under warranty you should not try to fix this problem yourself as you could cause even more perment problems.

Playstation 2 will not run connceted to my cable tv

your wired connection cable which sends the signals to the tv is faulty. I recommend buying ps2 or ps3 (either will work) value component cable for the best graphic quality. check it out in stores like game or gamestation or even cex for price ranges of £2 to £10 very cheap for amazing high definition quality (only if you have component support for your tv)!!! GOOD LUCK MATE
