What I did was initally hook up both the composite (R/W/Y) cables and the HDMI and switched between TV inputs until I found the display. Once I had the display (mine was on composite) I went to the settings, then display, and switched it to HDMI input. The screen went blank and I switched to my HDMI TV input and saw the display. I unplugged the composite and it was good to go. I also had to hold my finger over the power button for a few seconds when turning it on - I believe it resets the display to default, but it worked. Good luck!

In the event that it gives you a hard drive error shortly after, it's nothing to worry about. You won't lose anything and it will take a few minutes to run its course. Just make sure you never turn it off from the back of the system first, always shut it off via menu options.

Respectfully,

Don

Samsung TV Is Not Picking Up A Playstation 3 HDMI Signal


If you are able to connect your PS3 to another TV using the same HDMI cable that would rule out your PS3, if it works.....or
does the PS3 itself have any settings that perhaps need to be set to an HDMI output as opposed to Composite or SCART etc?
Also have a look at the HDMI settings in theh TV menu too.

Have you tried disconnecting the HDMI cable from both the TV and the console and then trying to reconnect?

Y+RT does not reset controllers for the Xbox 360, so not sure what you are attempting there?

What type of TV do you have? It appears the issue is with either your cable or the TV seeing that you are having the same issue with both your PS3 and Xbox 360.

I still think your first step should be to disconnect all cables from both ends and reconnect. (with poer off of all sytems of course) If this doesn't solve your issue then submit further information on your setup such as TV make and model and I can research other possibilities.

Mine did the same thing where the screen would go black for a few seconds and then the picture and sound came back. I would try (1) switch HDMI cables, (2) try a different HDMI input in the back of the receiver, (3) try different input in the back of the TV. None of these seemed to work with mine. I finally ended up running the cable box direct to the TV and only run the audio through the reciever via coax or digital. No more problems. I think the HDMI inputs in the back of the reciever have a problem continuously carrying the signal if it is the leaset bit weak.

Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. Two things that will cause the “No Signal” message to come up are - no data available for closed captioning and a weak signal input. Your TV is in the Closed Captioning Mode. To turn it off simply bring up the on screen menu and scroll down to the part that says closed captioning and turn this function off! With the closed captioning block displayed and the program being viewed is not sending out closed captioning signals the TV will display, No signal!

If this doesn’t resolve your issue then the problem may be with the processor failing and it is causing a random read of the EPROM to display the not available message. I’ll suggest you to run the HDMI from the PVR (personal video recorder) directly to the TV (mute the TV), and then run the optical audio from the PVR directly into the receiver's optical in. The closed captioning is something that is addressed in analog broadcasts, but not necessarily digital broadcasts

Try using Component cables if this doesn’t make a difference. After using components cables the issue will be resolved. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks

Blue no signal screen in the middle of playing a game - ps3 hdmi


Have your tried a different plug HDMI plug on your TV? Maybe bring your PS3 to a friend who has HDMI and try it on his TV. What about a diffferent HDMI cable?

Could also be your HDMI on your PS#, but try these other simple tasks first.

Good Luck

Toshiba hdmi ports not working


I talked to Toshiba about his problem, this morning. They said they have never hear of such an issue. I told them the TV was less than 1 week old, and would hope Toshiba would do something in response to my alternative action of returning both my Toshiba HD DVD and 52LX177 for a new brand. They said all they can do is have me go to a service center for them to repair it. 1 week old TV and DVD, $4000, for repair; I don't think so. I talked to two different people a Toshiba regarding this, with the same answer. Very poor customer support, especially for a higher end product like this. I think I have no choice but to change brands.
