is pressed down).

Make sure the HDMI cable is connected to the [HDMI OUT] port on the back of the PlayStation 3 system.

Plug the PlayStation 3 and television (or display) back in to the wall socket.
Turn the main power switch on the back of the PlayStation 3 back on (the line on the power button is now pressed).

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

1-HDMI is available in several versions. The PLAYSTATION 3 is
compatible with HDMI version 1.3 or higher, which will take full
advantage of Blu-ray Disc™ high-definition video. There are also "Type
A" and "Type B" connectors. The PLAYSTATION 3 uses the 19-pin Type A
connector, which will allow resolutions up to 1080p. The HDMI cable
is not included with the PLAYSTATION 3. If you are using an HDMI to DVI
converter, you may wish to remove this adaptor.
2- The resolution output (i.e., picture quality) of the PLAYSTATION 3 will depend on three factors: The type of cable used and the inputs available on the TV or display monitor. The
maximum resolution the TV or display monitor can support. The
PLAYSTATION 3 can output two types of resolution: HD and SD. Refer to
the TV or display monitor's owner's manual to check which video modes
are supported. The maximum resolution programmed into the source
material (movie or game). Refer to the software packaging for
information on maximum resolution details or contact the publisher
3- Try connecting with the supplied AV Cable
instead of the HDMI to see if you can get a successful installation.
This will help determine where the problem may be with your particular
HMDI setup and/or equipment.
4- Disconnect any coaxial cables
at the point closest to the television. Signals sent through coaxial
cables may cause interference with the sound and picture outputted from
the PLAYSTATION 3 which results in buzzing and humming noises from your
display and speakers.
