PS3 - getting audio, but no video

I hooked my PS3 to my receiver (HK AVR 347 in case it makes a difference) using a HDMI cable. I ran the cable from the PS3 to the HDMI 2 input. When I turn on the PS3 and switch to the HDMI 2 input using the receiver remote, I get audio but no video. I had initially used some of the wires that came with the game and had the PS3 connected directly to the TV and it worked fine. Does it change anything now that I've switched cables and am running it through the receiver first? Any suggestions?

    My playstation will not get video with usig both HDMI or the regular wires that came with it.And it was like this when i bought it!!!!!! Now sony wants me to ship it out to them. And still pay them for fixing the problem, that was originally their problem to begin with. So not only am i out the $600.00 i originally payed,but now i have to pay $75.00 for them to fix it. I have found there is no way to fix this problem,but to pay more money. As if they have not made enough money on the PS3 allready!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!? Whats up with that Sony. Fix the recalls for free. I mean you buy a car the dealership does not make people pay more for their RECALLS1111

Shouldn't. Try to reset the console by holding the power button for 10-15 seconds.
Hope this will solve the issue.

If you would like both video and audio to output through the HDMI cord, make sure to go into the PS3's video settings and select HDMI output there, and also go into the audio output settings and select HDMI. This should make the audio come out of the TV's speakers.

If you're using separate speakers, such as a surround sound system, use a different audio output (such as the red and white component cords) and plug those directly into your sound system.

Tip

No Audio Blank Screen Video PS3 - SOLUTION


  1. Check video cables - Make sure they are secure and the TV has correct input selected.
  2. While the PS3 is OFF ( solid red light ): Hold DOWN the power button until your hear the SECOND BEEP, quickly release.
If that doesn't solve your problem: Remove the hard drive from the PS3.
Try the above steps again with the hard drive out.

If you still aren't receiving video or audio try connecting the PS3 to another TV and if possible, try different cables and different cable types: A/V (red,white, yellow) and HDMI.

If the above persists the problem is most likely related to the GPU on the motherboard. In this case I recommend contacting Sony direct for service.

Hi, I have hooked up by PS3 to my flat screen tv and now have no sound for the game everything else has sound what can i do to solve this


Are you using hdmi cable? I would try different hdmi input or try different cable if you have one. If still using a/v cable make sure the white and red audio cable are plugged to the same input as your video. If that doesn't work you can try resetting the video on your ps3 by holding the power button until you get the 2 beeps.

PS3 surround sound


You will need the optical cable. My receiver only passes video through the hdmi. So I hooked up the HDMI cable to the tv, and the optical cable to the receiver. Once that is done you have to go to the audio settings for the PS3 and chose audio through the optical.

not 100% sure but check the manual for your tv it may be that you need a faster hdmi cable, as with having a larger tv it will work at a faster rate so the basic hdmi cables wont work.

PS3 setup to Denon AVR 2807 & Samsung LCD


Azahid

Since you are running the to LCD monitor instead of a LCD TV this is where you run into the issue. because the monitor is not setup to pull out the audio from the HDMI connection. So there is a few ways that you maybe able to to this.

The first one is look around at the different output cables out there the PS3. (I just got one so I do not know the accessories that are out for the PS3) This is becoming a common setup so if Sony does not have cable that will split off the audio then a 3rd party group may. I know they have one like that for the XBOX 360.

Another you can try is if your monitor will except an analog connection you may need to go that way. That is how I have my XBOX 360 that is my room connected. I have a RBG HD to VGA connect the VGA input on the monitor and the audio going to my sound card.

The reason why I suggested going analog is that right with our curent technology that if you are run with the 2 formats at the same time you will get audio/video sync issues. So you need to go all analog or all digital.

I hope this helps. Let me know if you have any other questions on this and/or need me to clarify anything.
