Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

PS3 or LCD TV?

My PS3 is not being detected by my Westinghouse 42" LCD 1080P. I have it hooked up by HDMI and everything has worked great for about 1 1/2 months. Last night I noticed when i turned on the PS3 and TV only the green light came onto the PS3 and the TV did not detect the HDMI connection. Usually both the green and the blue lights come on. I turned everything off and unhooked everything, cleaned the connections and plugged everything back in. Still only green light and it's not being detected. Suggestions? Thanks!

Got a PS3 hooked upto a Samsung 40" LCD TV via


I would suggest trying a different TV, and maybe see if you still have any Component or Standard Definition Composite cables to connect the PS3 to the TV and see if it works that way. I would assume you did this when you said you reset the resolution on your PS3, but turn it off, then hold in the power button until it beeps twice in a row. (Just in case) Make sure everything is plugged in twice and your TV is on the right input. If none of that works, there may be something wrong with the graphics adapters on your PS3 in which case you will need to contact Sony about fixing it.

Please do the following steps to reset your PS3 display :-

Turn the PS3 off into standby mode (red light on)

Press and hold the power button. It will beep when you first press it then beep again 5 seconds later. Release the power button when you hear this second beep.

Wait for the PS3 to detect your HDMI cable.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa

Blue no signal screen in the middle of playing a game - ps3 hdmi


Have your tried a different plug HDMI plug on your TV? Maybe bring your PS3 to a friend who has HDMI and try it on his TV. What about a diffferent HDMI cable?

Could also be your HDMI on your PS#, but try these other simple tasks first.

Good Luck

PS3 not working on 42'' JVC via HDMI cable port


I have the PS3 and this TV and it works....Try this.

1. Turn ON TV
2. Connect HDMI from TV to PS3
3. Select the correct HDMI input on the TV for the PS3(important)
4.Turn OFF PS3 if it is ON.
5. hold [I/O] Power button on PS3
6. Wait about 5 second and you should get the "HDMI Detected" or some similar message.
7. Configure the HDMI output for the PS3

Also, If you set the PS3 to "auto" for hdmi, it may set the resolution to 1080i. You may want to deselect everthing but the 1080P.
