MY PS3 is hooked up via HDMI and has always worked fine. All of a sudden i went to turn it on and there was nothing but black, it detected a signal, but it was just black.


Hi there, Have you switched cables or changed any of the video output settings on the ps3 or your telly? Just double check all the settings and that the cables are connected properly and are not damaged. If you have another cable try that to see if you still have a black screen or try on another telly with the same cable to see if it's the cable that the problem is? If you using a standard cable to try on another tv, you will have to reset the video output so it will work, to do this simply hold down the power button on the front of the ps3 until it powers off again and this will allow it work on a standard tv with standard cable, and to switch back to hdmi just connect with hdmi. Cable to HDTV and the ps3 will detect the cable and ask if you want to use these settings. Hope this helps

I was doing something on my PS3 and it asked me if I wnted to perform some sort of function and I said yes with out thinking. Now my TV and another TV I tried search for the HDMI signal and can't find...


ok, try this, disconnect your ps3 entirely, including power, then plug in the HDMI FIRST, then the power cable, the device will enter standby mode, turn the device on and see if that works. if it doesnt repeat what i just said but instead of turning it on hold the power button for 8-10 seconds. this resets the device to origional setting and when it turns on it should detect that the HDMI is the only connected media, thus selecting it as the primary output. Hope This Helps!

PS3 surround sound


You will need the optical cable. My receiver only passes video through the hdmi. So I hooked up the HDMI cable to the tv, and the optical cable to the receiver. Once that is done you have to go to the audio settings for the PS3 and chose audio through the optical.

PS3 no longer communicating with TV


The problem is with your PS3 itself.
If it's still under warranty, take it back.

PS3 hdmi connection


With your PS3 on standby (red light) hold the on/off button down until it goes green and then back to red. This restores your PS3 to "factory settings", i.e. it is waiting for you to tell it how you want it to connect to your TV. Now disconnect any HDMI cables you may be trying to use and connect your PS3 to your TV via a scart connection. Now switch your PS3 on and turn to your AV channel and you should have both sound and pictures.

Play station 3 hdmi-dvi


Yes you can. It will not be like a HDMI cable but it will be better than the RCA. Your image will be in your HDTV (1920 × 1080). But you will have to buy a HDMI cable and and HDMI-DVI adaptor. You will not have sound so you will have to connect either your RCA or if you have a Digital Optical Audio sounds better.

If you have any questions just ask.


Good luck!

All: Try this -

P
erform the following steps to reset the Video Output Settings.
  1. Make sure the HDMI cable is connected to the [HDMI OUT] port on the back of the PLAYSTATION 3 system. Connect the other end of the HDMI cable into the [HDMI Input] port of the TV or display monitor.
  2. While the PLAYSTATION 3 system is in standby mode (red light on the front of the system), hold down the touch-sensitive On/Off button on the front of the system until the system goes into standby mode again . (So the light cycle would go from: red light to --> green light --> then back to red light) This will ensure that you have held down the On/Off button long enough to reset the Video Output Settings.
  3. Turn ON the PLAYSTATION 3 and once the system finishes powering up, the Video Output Settings will automatically reset to the standard resolution (or detect the current display output settings of your TV/monitor). [If resetting does not auto-detect your HDTV, see next step below.]
NOTE: As of system software update version 1.60, the PLAYSTATION 3can automatically detect an HDMI connection to a TV. If the PLAYSTATION 3 is turned on with an HDMI cable connected, the screen for switching video output settings will be displayed automatically. (Does not function unless the TV that is connected by the HDMI cable is turned on.)

As of version 1.80 of the system update for the PLAYSTATION 3, the PLAYSTATION 3 can upscale the video content of PlayStation® format software, PlayStation®2 format software, and DVDs to HD resolution.

If Resetting the Video Output Setting Did NOT Detect Your HDTV Automatically (Certain TV's Only)
With certain televisions, the PLAYSTATION 3 may not automatically detect the HDMI source (TV) which it is plugged into, even after resetting the Video Output Setting (as described above).

If resetting the Video Output Setting did not work, you may need to follow these steps to manually locate the HDMI source:

1. Connect both the AV Cable and the HDMI cable from the PLAYSTATION 3 to the corresponding (AV and HDMI) ports on your TV. 2. Proceed with resetting the Video Output Setting on the PLAYSTATION 3 again. (Follow these steps, then continue to step 3 below.)
3. Turn the TV channel to the corresponding "Input" or "Video" channel for the AV Cable connection.
4. Manually change the Video Output Settings to HDMI. (Follow these steps, then continue to step 5 below.)
5. Now switch the "Input" or "Video" channel on the TV for the HDMI port the PLAYSTATION 3 is currently plugged into.
6. Accept the display settings for HDMI before the timer runs out (30 seconds). Highlight "Yes" and press the X button.
7. You can now disconnect AV Cable from the PLAYSTATION 3 and the TV, as it is no longer needed.
