Samsung TV Is Not Picking Up A Playstation 3 HDMI Signal


If you are able to connect your PS3 to another TV using the same HDMI cable that would rule out your PS3, if it works.....or
does the PS3 itself have any settings that perhaps need to be set to an HDMI output as opposed to Composite or SCART etc?
Also have a look at the HDMI settings in theh TV menu too.

I was playing my PS3 and moved it from my tv upstairs to my tv downstairs. After plugging my PS3 in my tv downstairs, on which it had worked just 1 week previously, my tv picked up no signal from my PS3....


Try this.

Plug your PS3 on either TV. Turn on the backswitch. When the red light in front is on, put your finger on the on/off button in front AND KEEP IT THERE. You will hear some beeps; don't worry about that. Keep your finger on the button until the front power light goes red again. This resets the PS3 video settings. Turn the PS3 on and the TV should pick up the signal.

Hope this helps. Keep us posted.

there should be a swith on the box which plugs into the ps2 (about 3 inches into the wire) and some cables have the switch on the box that fits into the tv try flicking the switch this should do the trick

PS3 is backwards compatible with PS2 games, and USED to play them


In Playstation Store, you should download (for free) the PS2 SYSTEM DATA (something like this).
if you have formated your system, the files were erased, and the games won't play until you download the backwards comparibility files again.

HDMI PORT STOPPED WORKING!!


the best option here is connect via a standard PS2 avi cable or componet cable until your tech guy comes out!

HDMI ports are not working


Try using the cables that were included with your PS3, (yellow, red, white) when you see your PS3 on that input. Plug in the HDMI cable. There should be something saying that an HDMI is detected and if you want to use it. Check the HDMI input on the TV and see if you see anything. The other thing that you might want to do is do a firmware update on the PS3. sometimes there are compatibility issues with HDMI

Backwards compatability


actuallly a lot of ps2 games can be played with the HDMI connected. I do it all the time... however yes the 60 gig will not play every ps2 game and there is a whole slew of the 60 gigs that are not backwards compatable at all. check it out on wikipedia's page on the ps3.

I haven't had a problem with any ps2 game yet, and the only ps game that I own that hasn't played on my ps3 is FF8.
