Is the tv an lcd or a crt? and how are you connecting it with composite (red white and yellow) component (red blue green white red) or hdmi? if through composite or component is the ps3 set on the right connection? if through hdmi is your tv HDCP compliant? if not than it prob won't work till you do the firmware updates on your ps3 via a broadband connection. if it still does not work than you won't be able to connect it to that tv only to a tv (and surprise surpirse all sony lcds are HDCP compliant) that is HDCP. it normally says in the instruction manual. Unfortunatly HDMI connection is not the godsend they said it would be. if the device does not immediatly talk to what you are pluggin it into than you are going to have problems

The tv probably does'nt have a fast enough refresh rate to work with games properly. It should be in the manual for the tv, the lower the number the better. I think it's 12 milliseconds on that tv. Have a look here:Response Rates.
Tries tv unplug replug it back like an hour later for a tv resetting itself.The HDMI (2) port might be working again.Just used the PS3 game system only conennected it in the different tv ports of for the HDMIS ports provided by the tv.U know this wright?The PS3 game system play all this funsctions.CD-Audio only,DVD movies and old PS1 games,some PS3 system may,may not support and play old PS2 games,All Blu Ray movies and All PS3 Blu Ray games.
If it's the first time using your PS3, use the composite cables that came with it. Turn on the PS3 go to video settings and switch the input to HDMI. After you've switched to HDMI, turn the PS3 off and connect your HDMI cable, go back to video settings and change the resolution to 1080p. If this isn't the first time you've used HDMI for your PS3, make sure your T.V. is on the correct input. If the T.V. is on the correct input, try switching the HDMI cable to a different input. If that doesn't work try using a different HDMI cable, testing different HDMI connections if you're still getting the black screen. If none of those work then it's probably a problem with the PS3, but just to make sure try plugging something else with HDMI to see if that works. If another HDMI device works, then it's your PS3, if it doesn't then it could be a problem with your HDMI connections on the T.V.
1. Turn ON TV
2. Connect PS3 to TV HDMI input
3. select TV HDMI input for PS3
4. turn OFF PS3 if it is ON
5. Press and hold the [I/O]Power button until the PS3 until you get the "HDMI Detected" message.
Also, this TV has a circuit that deactivates the HDMI if the rear cover is removed. It is possible the HDMI may have been turned OFF. This is reset in the service menu of the TV.
You will have to connect it to the TV using the composite cable to change the settings. This is the cable with yellow red and white connectors. Connect it to one of the composite inputs on the TV. You should be able to leave to HDMI connected at the same time so that once you make the change, you can change to the HDMI input and see if it works.
For real try this:
Turn off the tv as well as the ps3 (to where the red ps3 light is on);
Then just hold down the power button in the front for like 15 seconds or so, at least until you hear a beep.
Then turn the Tv back on, and hopefully once you get the tv back on the correct hdmi input, you'll see that little message offering you to switch to optimum settings.
Hope it works. Did for me.
