Cant get output ps3 on hdmi cable


  • Make sure the system is off.
  • Hold down the Power Button for 5-6 seconds - until you hear the second beep.
    This resets the video settings to defaults (standard video output).
    Power up the PS3 again and it should auto-detect the hdmi at this point.

    If that does not work use the original audio/video cable that came with the system, power it on, then adjust the video settings and try the hdmi cable again.

    Just bought a Yamaha RX-V371 surround sound receiver and the TV audio signal is cutting out. I am running a Samsung LED TV with a single HDMI cable (sound/picture). I tested a smaller tv with a short HDM...


    Settings are not the source of intermittent problems.

    "Signal loss" is indicated WHERE? So what's going on upstream at the source? ITS cables are a part of this.

    My $.02... I never route any signal unnecessarily to or through a device that doesn't enhance or consume it. Hence, my BEST video from each of my several video sources goes directly to my TV/monitor and my BEST digital audio from all sources goes directly to my AVR.

    No problems.

    How do you use PS3 and DVD player with the Toshiba 32Dtu2 LCD TV?


    The PS3 can be hooked up to the tv using either a HDMI cable or the old RCA (Yellow, Red, White) cables. If you are having problems viewing a picture or hearing sound, here is some trouble shooting you might want to try.

    Connect the PS3 using both the HDMI and RCA cables. select the HDMI input on your tv. turn on the PS3. If you cant see a picture, press and hold the power button until you hear 2 beeps (this will take about 15 seconds). This resets the PS3 to the old RCA cables. Select the RCA input on your tv. Hopefully you can see the image and hear the PS3 now. Go to the settings on the PS3 and change the display settings to output video through the HDMI. Remember, your tv can only go as high as 1080i resolution, so you wont see anything if you select the 1080p resolution.

    If this didn't work, you might have a bad signal though the HDMI cable. Unplug the tv and PS3 for atleast 30 minutes, and then connect the PS3 to the tv before you turn either one on.

    If this doesn't help, then you might have a HDMI cable that isn't recognized by either your PS3 or your tv. Try replacing your HDMI cable.

    Hope this helps!

    Turn on ps3 i get no picture or sound then i cant turn it off i have to unplug it whats wrong with it?


    • Check your HDMI Cable

      HDMI is available in several versions. The PS3 is compatible with HDMI version 1.3 or higher, which will take full advantage of Blu-ray Disc™ high-definition video. There are also "Type A" and "Type B" connectors. The PS3 uses the 19-pin Type A connector, which will allow resolutions up to 1080p.
      The HDMI cable is not included with the PS3.

    • Cable adaptors (i.e., HDMI to DVI converters)

      If you are using an adaptor (i.e., HDMI to DVI converter), try bypassing this adaptor and connecting the HDMI cable directly into the display.


    • Check the adaptorTry an alternate cable

    • Try connecting with the supplied AV Cable instead of the HDMI to see if you can get a successful installation. This will help determine where the problem may be with your particular HDMI setup and/or equipment.


    • Some older HDTVs may have issues with the copy protection protocols (HDCP) causing the handshake not being communicated between the TV and the PS3. Try resetting the TV by turning the TV and PS3 off, then unplug the TV power cord from the outlet and plug it back in. Then turn your TV and PS3 back on and see if the picture appears.

    • Try using a different the HDMI Cable on the PS3.Make sure the HDMI Cable is free of any cuts, frays or other visible damage.
    • Try installing the PS3 to another TV or display (i.e., monitor).
    • Try using the HDMI Cable with a different PS3 system.

    PS3 No signal to the TV


    To solve this, when the ps3 is in standby (solid red light), just hold the power button. It should beep on, then beep again in about 5 seconds. This will automatically search for the optimal audio video output. if if beeps on then turns off, just try again, it takes 1 or 2 tries sometimes. the reason this is happening is because your ps3 is set to one AV output, ex. composite(red yellow white), HDMI, and then you changed the cable to a different one. another way to fix it is plug both cables, HDMI and composite, into the tv and ps3, then go to settings and change the output to the desired one.

    No video signal


    Try turning the console off, then holding down the on button until you hear a series of beeps, each beep representing the system switching video modes. (try testing another output source to make sure your tv is working correctly) if your tv accepts other video signals then you should find the correct one from your ps3 with this method. you may have to get it to work on AV or S-Video to make the appropriate changes to the HDMI and set the proper resolution for your television first.

    Hope this helps.

    Help for a friend; ln-s4095d, hdmi and blu-ray.. no picture


    You may want to try a good, Monster Cable, HDMI cable. Visit this page: http://www.monstercable.com/HDMI/advancedhdmi.asp
    If you have a standard HDMI cable, it will not support 1080P.

    So this is one of the few times that I will recommend spending the money for a better cable.
    The better cable improves picture color quality, from 8 bit to 12 bit and it improves audio quality.
