You need to set your HDMI, resolution down, on PS3 FIRST, using composite, or component hookup, to the TV FIRST, Turn OFF, but DO NOT select HDMI, leave it on, Composite, or Component, when finished setup the TV, the turn it off, leave off, Then connect up PS3, power on, NOW turn on the TV, select HDMI, Change PS3 to HDIM, now it should appear. Sometimes you have to "Reset" the TV, by tuning it on & off.

The usb cable on my ps3 is not working will not play on any tv in house it plays with hdmi cables


Playstation 3's will not output display information via usb, it does although have a traditional Playstation style connector port for displaying via component cable/ AV cable. To switch to this display setting without having access to an HDMI television press and hold the power button until the PS3 beeps for a second time. Pressing once it will beep but continue holding until the device beeps again and it will boot into a display "safe mode" and ask you to verify your display settings.

Connecting Ps3 with philips tv (full hd) when i got hd cable in, and click to switch so the ps3 uses hd to show things and i than switch over to the channel i plugin the hdmi cabel it gives blac kscreen


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.

Ps3 has no video


I would first try changing the inputs if there is an HDMI cable connected the PS3 will detect it and change the output to HDMI. Make sure when you connect any HDMI cables that the power is off on ALL Units that are using HDMI. Connect the cables then power up all units. Change TV and Receiver or Amp to correct HDMI Inputs. On the PS3 go to Display Settings over to the left of the Crossbar. Select output settings and select HDMI and everything after select AUTOMATIC! Then Set your Audio (Also use Auto) and Save by pressing X.  Good Luck!

Sharp Aquos LC-32B20E wont display a PS3 output via HDMI


kitconnolly,

I too went through this problem.

Step 1 - Plug in your "composite" cables and the HDMI cable to the PS3. Obviously, the "composite" cable are the ones that came with the system. You need to start with them as the default connector.

Step 2 - After connecting the "composite" cable and the HDMI cable to the PS3, connect the other ends to your TV.

Step 3 - Power on your PS3

Step 4 - Select display settings-->video output settings

Step 5 - Change from the current video cables to HDMI. (Your tv has different inputs. When you switch to HDMI in the PS3, you will have to switch your TV to the HDMI input that it is connected to, to get a picture)

Step 6 - Be quick, the PS3 will display a "test" for 30 seconds. You need to switch your tv to the correct HDMI input and press "X" on your controller to accept the change.

Let me know how this works for you.

Ps3 again


Well did you change the setting on the ps3 before you switched to the hdmi cable? sometimes this can pose as a issue. there is a actual setting on the ps3 for this. so I would switch back to the last cables used and then go and switch this in the setup of the ps3 then it should work no problem for you.

av and comp and hdmi all process the a/v differently through the cables sometimes even on my dvd player I have had to adjust this in the setting.

ok i think I understand what you are saying so if im wrong please correct me but I think you should try this if you need further info on how to change the setting let me know and I will dig up the process for you.

hope this has helped

Hello can you help with this error!


When you switch from one cable connection to another (Hdmi to AV etc) you need to reset the PS3 to its default settings. Basically what is happening is, your PS3 is set to HDMI, so when you plug in AV cables it doesn't know it. So you have to reset it. Hook your PS3 up to whatever cables (make sure system is fully off) then hold the front power button down for a few seconds.

Doing this will reset the display settings. You can then go into the XMB (main menu) and choose your connection. Although the PS3 should do this during the start up on its own.

Hope this helps.

Display not working


how down the power button until it beeps twice. that will restart your settings for the display. once it beeps twice then turn the system on and change the default settings back to your hdmi settings. what happened was when you transferred the ps3 to composite the settings changed to accomodate that but when you switch back to hdmi it doesnt change back. the only solution is to hold down the power button untill it beeps twice. normaly 3 seconds.
