PS3 HDMI - Sony Bravi KDL-40V2000 Problem

I am trying to switch my PS3 to HDMI on my sony Bravia KDL-40V2000. So I connect my HDMI cable to the T.V. and I open the PS# on regular resolution. When I open the PS3, i get a message saying "An available HDMI device was detected. Do you want to output video and audio using HDMI?" This obviously means that the HD cable works. However, when I say yes, I go the AV which is meant for HDMi, AV4 in my case, and I find nothing but a blank screen.
What do I do??!!

    Thanks a lot for the quick response. There are just a few things i want to clarify

    1 - I have a PS3 not an xbox
    2 - When I am not using HD (On normal resolution, I'm not on a different T.V., I'm just on another AV (external output)

    I tried switching to HDMI settings then removing my av cables, but there was still no picture :(

    Do you have any other suggestions

  • ramystaha May 09, 2010

    I tried that numerous times as well, but it didn't work. I think the problem is with the T.V. not the ps3. When I press yes to change to hdmi settings, the screen in the external output for normal resolution disappears (Which is normal), however I year a click or beep right after. I don't know what that is. When I go to hdmi external output (AV4) I can't see anything as well. So when i press yes, I can see a screen on neither the external output for normal resolution or hdmi

    The TV only has one HDMI port

    Yes, the ps3 works on the TV and I have played using HD numerous times

  • ramystaha May 09, 2010

    Like I said, I think the problem is from the TV not the PS3 itself. So I think there will be no difference if I reset the ps3 that way. I have tried numerous times anyway

    Sorry if there was a misunderstanding. I misread your words

    I don't think there is another one, im downloading the guide for my tv model to double check

    I am positive that the av i am on is for the hdmi. I have used the hdmi numerous times before on this av and it even says hdmi in the back of the tv

  • ramystaha May 09, 2010

    Sorry that was an accident

    Like I said before... I cannot find the second port so I am downloading the manual for my tv model to find out where it is.

  • ramystaha May 10, 2010

    Are you sure there are two hdmi ports, i downloaded the manual and the diagram only labels one. I might be wrong, but I have searched everywhere for another port and I can't find anything :(

    have you tried both HDMI ports on the tv

    has the ps3 ever worked on the TV

    the steps that i have told you above do it with just the HDMI plug in the ps3 and the power plug ignore the SCART or PHONO jacks

    i dont say anything about resetting the ps3 in my second post

    try plugging the hdmi plug in a different hdmi port on the back of your tv
    your tv has two hdmi ports try the other one

    also double check that the AV channel is correct by lookinh at the back and reading the av number where the hdmi plug is plugged in to the tv

40" Sony Bravia has intermittent audio failure.


I have a KDL-46VL130 with the same problems. Audio on the HDMI connection turns on and off intermittently when I have it connected with my ATT Uverse rcvr. I check w/ Sony online support and they led through the standard troubleshooting process ... which I knew going in would not fix the problem. Ultimately they told me to try a new HDMI cable first, or try a different video source for the HDMI, other than my ATT U-Verse reciever and see if the problem persists. Having seen other articles on this issue, i am almost certain that is not going to fix the problem... and to think that I paid $2000 for this thing.

On Sony Bravia KDL-S40A12U screen occasionally turns black for a couple of seconds. Only happens on the HDMI channel. Sound still works, but no picture?


Possibly source issue(Box/Satt). Some HD boxes do not have very good HDMI processors or the actual program source feed may be faulty. HD sources are still not 100% efficient

Sony Bravia KDL 40X2000 HDMI both cutting out


Sounds like a handshake problem with the HDMI outputs on the devices. I have never seen BOTH HDMI inputs have the problem. It could be a problem in the TV where the HDMI signal is processed or the HDMI jacks may have been stressed and this is why you have an intermittent problem. By stressed I mean that the jacks have been bent by inserting the cables wrong or pulling up or down on the cables when they were plugged into the unit.

I have looked up the infomation on your TV I noticed that your TV has two HDMI input plugs. Since your SONY BRAVIA is hooked up to one port, you need to buy another HDMI cable for your PS3. On your tv remote you should have an option to switch from video 1 to video 2 so then you can switch from the SONY BRAVIA to the PS3 the problem is you will only hear your PS3 Sound from you TV. If you want to hear your PS3 sound from your SONY BRAVIA you need to buy an optical cable (also called TOSLINK) to connect from your PS3 to the SONY BRAVIA.

Hope that helps!
