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.

ie., our cabel is componet2, our old vcr AV2, our dvd is HDMI3

My blu ray 3d dvd player will not show picture on blu ray discs only sound but will play regular dvds correctly


The video for blu ray disks come out of the HDMI port and that has to be connected to the TV for video. If it is connected, make sure the TV is switched to the correct HDMI port on the TV (assuming you have a flat screen HDTV).

Compatibility with Samsung LCD Display


It sounds like the HDMI port on the back of your Marantz is damaged. if you know for sure that the HDMI port works on another tv still you might just use component connection because the visible difference between component and HDMI is not very recognizable.

Sony dvd player Model DVPNS78H


Sounds like the TV you are using does not support NTSC, the US TV standard. Try connecting the DVD player to some other TVs - something not more than a few years old would be a good bet, and a large screen plasma/LCD ideal as most of these are "multi-system" and handle PAL and NTSC automatically.
If the problem was the region coding you would be getting a message on the screen, something like "Cannot play due to area limitations".
