No picture thru hdmi but picture thru RCA plugs

My picture stopped working with my hdmi cable but still works with the RCA wires. It is not the cable itself, it works on other components.

I had this exact same problem, or rather my friend did after I borrowed his PS3. You see when I borrowed it, the console configured the HD output to work with my TV, If this happened to you, there is a fix, With the HD cable connected, turn off the power to your PS3 and then turn it back on again. But when you turn it on, hold down the power button until you see something on the screen. When you hold down the power button of the PS3 when you are turning it on, it completely resets the video settings to the most basic settings (480p I think) so that it'll work on any TV or monitor. Once you can then get something on the screen, you can configure the video settings to match the TV you are hooking up to.

How can I make a NEC Plasma Monitor that was given to me work like a TV that has AUDIO?


If it has no internal sound, then you obviously can't make it function like a TV aside from the picture right? It does have inputs whether HDMI or standard Cable wiring to see TV from a cable box?

You'd need to have RCA cables coming from the cable box (Audio out - white wire I'd figure) going into a stereo near the monitor that has a VIDEO button on it where the white RCA cable is plugged into the Audio In jack.

A stereo receiver or even old sort of stereo with a Video or Auxillary sort of jack with button to activate that jack will allow for surround sound from the stereo coming from the cable box in sync with the video of the TV.

I Have my RCA CABLE HOOKED UP INTO MY TV I HAVE A PICTURE HOWEVER I DON'T HAVE ANY VOLUME AT ALL


How do you have it hooked up? RCA cables, HDMI, DVI, etc...
If you're using RCA cables (usually red, yellow, and white) check and make sure that the audio cables (red and white) are plugged into the correct sockets with corresponding colors. If you have properly connected the cables and your issue persists, then you might have faulty wires (might have a pinch which could have broken the wire through the inside) try again with different wires and see if it works. if it still doesn't work try pluging your RCA cables on different sockets (TVs usually have more than one component sockets)...make sure your red and white wires are on the same component # as the yellow wire.

Press the Audio Parameter button (Looks like an x) then scroll up until you see 'HDMI AMP' and hit over to the left or right so it shows 'HDMI THRU' the HDMI will redo the handshake and you should have sound.

I myself have a 46" RCA LCD flat screen tv, which I have my xbox 360 connected via HDMI cable. If your tv has audio out "rca plugs", which im sure being a newer 3d HD tv, connect the supplied cable to the audio out (red, white) plugs, and then connect your headphones to that jack!

Console starts up and I can hear but shows no picture.


make sure video cable is plugged in all the way on back of ps3. the a/v cable is little tricky. it looks like its plugged all the way but its not. also if doesnt work, if u have hdmi cable use it then go to display settings, then connetions. set it up as av cable connection then it will ask about audio - av rca connetions. and save. now its set up as av cables and then when u use hdmi it will automatically set up hdmi.

As for your PS3 I had simillar issue, the PS3 doesn't Automattically adjust from analog, to component, to HDMI. If you get a signal thru the Reg RCA plugs, if you plug in the HDMI cable at the same time, then go to the system settings and change the type of plug you want to use, choose the HDMI, and the screen should flicker then show the signal from the HDMI, then just power off and/or unplug the analog cables, and you are using HDMI. hope this helps, if so thanks for the ratings

Sound, but no picture


The hdmi inputs on this unit go directly thru the main digital pcb. and the component inputs feed thru the av pcb then to the main pcb. If the composit hook up do not work and hdmi inputs do work the unit has a bad AV pcb.
