My emerson tv say device control inactive


John, I've ran into this issue a couple of times myself. In most cases, there are easy fixes to the issue. #1, Does your TV have multiple HDMI inputs? They may be labeled HDMI1, or HDMI2, etc. I know this sounds strange, but many people don't realize that the signal source is important. #2, Connect the cord, from another device that you know works(laptop-monitor) to eliminate the possibility that your HDMI cord is bad. #3, (Probably most common) The PS3 is not the most stable platform when using the HDMI cord. Remember that the PS3 was one of the "pioneering" platforms using the HDMI connection.As such, the "auto-detect" feature is sometimes confused when switching between RCA inputs, and HDMI input. (Happens every time actually) To fix this, try a video reset on your PS3 system. It's fast, easy, and doesn't effect anything except the video/audio settings. I'll put in a link to get you started in that direction. It is the same with all models of PS3. Good luck! ^^

I have a panasonic Th-42pv500a. I'm trying to connect my ps3 Via HDMI but it won't work. The ps3 works in my other tv with the same HDMI cable. And the foxtel box works in the panasonic with the same HDMI...


the playstation detects that you are changing display settings. hopefully you still have the old red yellow and white cord that we all used to use to plug in stuff to your tv . use this cord to connect your playstation to the tv, it should pop up that you want to change display settings. then after you go through that unplug and recconect the hdmi and it should run you through it again, Another option - when you plug in your ps3 to the tv , turn everything on the tv and playstation. if nothing pops up turn off your tv and playstation , literaly unplug them from the outlet for a good minute then plug everything back in and you should fix it that way. hope one of these work

I was switching my ps3 from hdmi output to the red,yellow and white cords and after i accepted i switched my tv to av1 and there was picture and sound but it then asked me what format and i selected 1080p...


Easy to fix so don't worry ;)

While the PS3 is off (solid red led)

Hold down the power button until you hear the SECOND BEEP, quickly release.

This will reset the video settings back to default.

When i plug my hdmi cable to playstation and the tv, i get no signal! when i plug that 3 different colour cable. i get good graphics.. how to fix my hdmi input for Ps3


plug both cables into tv select the input on tv that has the three different color cable plugged into it use this connection to navigate the menu on ps3 go into display settings and choose the option for 1080 p or 1080 i and then choose the input method of hdmi after doing so your picture will go blank you must then select the input on the tv that has the hdmi plugged into it your screen should then show the picture you must do this quickly because you only have 30 seconds or so to save the new settings before it resets back to the old output settings. click your x button to save and you should be well on your way to better graphics using the hdmi on your ps3!!

My ps3 turns on but nothing appears on the screen what should i do? i have all the cords plugged in


Your question is lacking a little information, but I assume you are using a HDMI cable. First you need to turn the PS3 on by the switch on the PS3. Then press and hold the On/Off button on the PS3, keeping it pressed until you here a clear beep and then a couple of seconds after you should hear a second beep. Once you hear the second beep take your finger off the button. Now as long as you are on the correct HDMI channel the rest should be on the screen for you to complete.

Please Note - If you have it working on a particular TV, then decide to unplug the PS3 and put it on another TV, there is a very good chance it will be blank again. This is normal because each TV has different setting, pixels, size, etc, and the HDMI has to be set to each individual TV. Once you get use to the settings. It takes no more than 1 minute to do.

Cheers, and hopefully this will solve your problem.

My screen wont work i tried a hdmi cable but wouldnt work what do i do?


If you can get a display with the default setup (original cords) follow this procedure:

a) Plug in BOTH the HDMI cord and the other display cords to your TV.

b) On your TV, using the disignated video input (not HDMI) you should have the main screen

c) Go to settings, and then display settings. Set up your display to read HDMI. Your screen will go dark.

d) Quickly change your TV input from video to HDMI and it should still be displayed. Save the changes.

e) Shut off the system, unplug the original cords leaving in just your HDMI cord and your designated audio cord (preferably fiber-optic).

f) Turn it back on and you should be good to go.
