NO sound on HDMI3 port and when playing Blu-Ray DVD's the screen is pink

Hi guys,

Just thought I'd ask you about the above problem that I am having at the moment.

I have just bought a new Samsung 46" LCD and when I have plugged my PS3 into the HDMI3 Port, there is a picture, but no sound.

When I connect the PS3 to ports HDMI1 & HDMI2, they work fine (sound & picture).

Also when connected to the HDMI3 Port on the TV and trying to play Blu-Ray DVD's, the sceen is mostly pink.

I've been discussing this with the Retail outlet that I purchased it from advising that I would like a new screen as it is brand new, but they are insistant that the problem is related to a setting on the TV.

I have been through the troubleshooting steps of the instruction manual for both the TV and the PS3 to make sure the settings are correct, to no avail.

Do you have any suggestions at all?

Go to the samsung website, and find out how to upgrade the firmware for your TV. You will probably need a portable usb memory stick to do so (if your TV is equipped with one). HDMI is an evolving technology, and firmware upgrades can resolve many of these quirky issues.

Here's a possibility from http://www.samsung.com/us/support/faqs/supportFaqList.do?group=&type=&subtype=&model_nm=LN-S4696D&dType=D&mType=UM&vType=R&prd_ia_cd=02010100&acc_ia_fl=&disp_nm=LN-S4696D
Which Samsung LCD TVs Have The HDMI 1.3 Interface? NO sound on HDMI3 port and when playing Blu-Ray DV - spacer.gif Of the LN-T series Samsung LCD TVs, those models whose last two digits are 61, 65, 66, 69, 71, or 81 (for example, LN-T4071F or LN-T466F) have the HDMI 1.3 interface.
Samsung LCD TVs with HDMI 1.3 interfaces also have HDMI-CEC (HDMI - Consumer Electronics Control). For information about CEC, click HERE.
For information about individual Samsung LCD TVs with HDMI 1.3 interfaces and HDMI-CEC, click HERE. When the Samsung LCD TV web page appears, select the TV model you want information about by clicking the drop down list under Product Finder on the left side of the page.
Though other series of Samsung LCD TVs (LN-R, LN-S, etc.) have HDMI connections, none have models with the HDMI 1.3 interface.

TV will not play blu ray (a LG blu ray player). Only LG logo comes up then black screen.


You have to use LG tv remote and press input.
Choose the option your blu-ray player is plugged into.
Any option that is not grayed out has something plugged into it.

After reading your post a couple of times, it just seems your are in a little of a pickle here. The only thing I can suggest, since your tv will work with fios and not the your BD player(I assuming your using the same port on the tv with the same hdmi cable), is all about firmware. Maybe your tv is not compatible with the the BD player. Try updating the firmware on the tv.

42LG50 TV - Intermittant sound problems with blu-ray HDMI input


You say this doesn't happen on regular cable or when playing a regular DVD. Hmm. Is this Blu-Ray player connected by simplink? HDMI is a bi-directional format cable, so  there are cases in setups where your tv can send commands to your blu-ray player and vice versa. It could be a problem with your blu-ray player that it is sending for some odd reason a mute command to your tv. Or is processing a command that your TV interprets to be a mute command when playing blu-rays. Because if it was the TV itself chances are you'd see this when watching a normal DVD or on cable as well. Since you say you're not, it leads me to believe the issue lies with the blu-ray player itself.
