You can try to hook up your PS3 to a different output and if it does the same, you have to replace your cable connecting your PS3 to your video output device. It is saying no signal because your output device might not been able to detect the video signal your PS3 it sending due to a bad cable. Hope it works.

Screen refresh problem


Sometimes it is as simple as separating the wires behind the computer, so they are not touching. With the interference gone, all is fine.

No longer getting video feed through Home Theatre receiver


HDMI ports 5 and 6 on the back of tv no longer are working. (We had a series of thunder storms so don't know if that is how they got damaged or if it was something else) but moved HDMI input cable to HDMI port 4 on tv and everything is working again. Service call placed for warranty service on tv to repair bad ports.

Blank Screen/Powers up, Power LED can be switched from ON (Green) to STANDBY (Red)


Gateway was sued Class action over LCD's and Plasmas they sold over a 2 year period. They resell 3rd party TV's that were very faulty, an immature design.

Here's what I learned about mine, which makes it limp through as a Computer monitor (both DVI and VCA) and halfway functional TV.
You have to connect a DVI source, on the Main Menu for the DVI input there is an option called "Factory Mode". scroll down to it with the CH buttons and select it with the vol button. The scroll to "initialize eprom", select and confirm it. After the "Waitting" words disappear, make sure you have a TV source connected, Then turn the TV off and on, using the hard switch in the back. The TV input should be defaulted to channel 10 or 11 now But you select a TV channel that has no TV signal on it (like channel 1 for example) , the whole TV input side will refuse to let you select it again, and you'll have a blank screen and have to start over.

That takes care of the blank screen thing Now the other problem is parental control is defaulting to "ON" or something, and you can't program channels. With the TV input Main Menu engaged, select "Setup Menu." If you have this problem, then you'll only see 2 options, all the TV input and channel programming options will be missing. You have to select Parental Control, and when it prompts you for a password hit the volume > button 4 times (or just wait for a minute.) This should bring back your TV System and auto prgram/manual search options.

Unfortunately, my TV doesn;t remember these setting very well if I select cable, it does better if I select "AIr". But at least it funtions - kind of. If you switch to your computer input, you probably will have to switch the monitor off and on from the back panel again. Mine always starts up with the menu onscreen. All this might bve less trouble if you have a the remote, I don;t know where mine went after the last move.

Good luck, and hope this helps.

No picture on tv screen.


Had the same problem. When I turned on the console, the screen went a bit fuzzy at first and then remained blank. There was no sound either, but I could still turn it off with the controller. I checked all the connections and even plugged it into another T.V. I have now discovered the problem! The scart connector which came with the PS3 wasn't working properly. Didn't have the prob before because I wasn't using it. Hope that this helps. If not, try holding the power button down for a few seconds after turning on the system. You'll hear a beep noise and the system will try to adjust its AV output or something. Worth a try anyway.

Need help with PIP


When you go into the menu to choose the PIP source the PIP comes on to confirm that a valid source has been selected. It is normal for the PIP to close when the menu is exited. To display the PIP normally you will need a remote with a PIP button. Most universal remotes today have PIP functions but if you get a Zenith original replacement then you are guaranteed to enjoy the other PIP features such as size, position, freeze and swap.
