Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

I have a HDMI problem with my PS3. I have it

I have a hdmi problem with my PS3. I have it currently hooked up to an rca srs (wow) 1080p Full hdtv. The PS3 has worked fine on my tv since I purchased my PS3 in late November. I have taken the PS3 to a friend's house who does not have an hdtv and switched from hdmi to av just fine with no problems; and then back to my rca with no problems. However after bringing my PS3 home from my friends this time and hooking it up to my rca hdtv my tv nor the PS3 can recognize my hdmi cord. So I've tried a list of solutions: 1) I tried resetting the PS3 using the display settinga feature while both hdmi and av cables were plugged in. 2) I tried resetting the PS3 manually (holding down the power button and waiting for the two beeps) while the hdmi cable was plugged in. 3) I've bought a new hdmi cable (still nothing) What to do?!

You will need to turn on the PS3 and hook it up with rca so you can access the console menus. Turn it on and get to the main dashboard. 1. Go to Settings -> Display Settings (not video) 2. Select [ Video Output Settings ] 3. Select HDMI 4. Select Resolution 5. Select Screen Size 6. Save the settings 7. Reboot the console. This should resolve the problem. We've seen PS3 consoles that would not reset by performing a hard reset. We were able to resolve this issue through the settings menu though. Let me know if it is still giving you issues.Hank GATpro Repairs

Trying to use ps3, even after using hdmi cable on input 6 or 7, it says check your device output and i see green lines on my screen?


hi
There maybe some problem with your TVs resolution. ps3 outputs full hd high resolution video(1080p) through its HDMI. May be your TV is not supporting that resolution. Connect ps3's component video out to your TV's component video input and then try. if it ask for any resolution selection. select 720p or 1080i, above that resolution your TV will not support. Your tv is hd ready one, not full hd. ps3 's HDMI out is full hd (1080p).
or try this
Connect your ps3 to any full hd tv and then goto video setup of ps3. change resolution to 1080i (down scaling ). then connect to your TV via HDMI. surly u will get the video.
ok

Trying to hook-up a PS3 to my Toshiba 32AV500U thru HDMI but I get no picture. I forget how to get to the setup.


The Toshiba 32AV500U cannot display 1080p. Hook up your PS3 to your computer monitor, provided that it can display 1080p, or some other TV that can, then change your Video Output settings under Settings> Display Settings and uncheck 1080p, which will allow the PS3 to display in 1080i. Once you do that, then hook up the Toshiba via HDMI and it will work with no problem.

Try entering Recovery Mode and choose "Restore Default Settings".


If that doesn't help, you may have an HDMI port failure - which will require returning the unit to Sony or sending it to a third-party PS3 repair shop.
