Hooking up a PS3 through HDMI

I have my PS3 hooked up to the tv through HDMI, but the tv wont recognize the hook up, i know i have to load the PS3 HDMI set up in the menu but its still not recognizing it when i try to set up, it only works through the yellow red and white cables when the tv is in game mode. When the PS3 tries looking for the active HDMI connection it goes back to default saying the connection was not available. Same Issue, will not recognize, nor go to 1080p resolution

IS this a 1080p TV? If not then use 1080i or 720p.

Hooking up my ps3 using HDMI cord to my olevia 232-S13 and it says invalid format


Setting up your HDMI cable on your PS3 games console

1: Turn on your TV and set its input to HDMI.

2: Make sure your PS3 is connected via a HDMI cable.

3: Power on your PS3 and press and hold the power button for approx. 5 seconds, you will hear the PS3 start to beep, release the power button after the second beep.

4: Your PS3 should automatically configure itself for HDMI video and Audio output.

No signal input ps3


Try that PS3 on another TV or monitor with an HDMI input to check the PS3 is working ok. If it is try a different HDMI cable.

Would like to hook up playstation2 can you help with this


I would suggest hooking up via HDMI or via the composite cables. Then all you should have to do is turn on your ps3, change the input on your tv to whichever port shows the ps3 or new input device. If it doesn't for some reason recognize it as ps3, you can always go into more detail using the tv to rename that port as the PS3. Hope this is what you wanted to know!

I have a insignia lcd color tv & dvd player & the hdmi port wont let me play my PS3 system


If your sure the PS3 is not the problem. You can try uplugging the television for about 5 minutes or so and plugging back in. With the PS3 hdmi hooked up to tv turn on tv. IF it still doesnot recognize then you either have a faulty main board on the television or a problem in the PS3.

You can reset the PS3 to make sure its not causing the problem.
With the PS3 turned off, press and hold the power button until you hear 2 quick beeps then release and press power again. This will reset the PS3. You will not lose any stored information doing this!.

Hope it works!!!

Television is not recognizing HDMI inputs


there is a possibility that there might have been a power surge sent over hdmi into the hdmi board on the tv. if on your model the hdmi board is seperate from the sine board then youll have a cheap replacement if not its gonna cost you roughly 300-400 is my guess.

call your repair guy

TELEVISION - PS3 AND XBOX HDMI COMPATIBILITY


You have to use the scart connector for on screen menu settings. Go to the video option and enable HDMI and/or match resolution output to your set.
You did not mention the model of the TV so here is another scenario,
Just because the TV is 1 year old doesn't mean that it is a 1080p capable, you could have set the HDMI resolution settings to 1080p and you will not get any picture if your set cannot process the information.
