  • Check that the input mode of the TV is appropriate for the connector in use on the PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system.
  • There may be a problem with the cable in use. Try using another cable that is compatible with the PLAYSTATION®3.
  • If the video output settings on the PLAYSTATION®3 do not match those of the cable or TV in use, there may be no picture. If the screen goes blank, turn off the system.
  • Then, with only the PLAYSTATION®3 and the TV connected, touch the system's power button for more than 5 seconds to turn the system back on. The video output settings will automatically be reset to the standard resolution.
if that does not work then call Sony at

My digital tv is saying no singal whats the problem and how do I fix it? we have a huge antenna on our roof







1 – Is the NO SIGNAL issue happening on just one TV?
CORRECT INPUT or SOURCE
If it is just one TV that is showing the NO SIGNAL…
-Be sure your TV is on the correct source or input as your CABLE or SAT BOX.
-Press the TV button on TV remote control to turn your TV ON.
-Press the INPUT button on your TV remote control.
-Cycle through all the inputs on your TV.
-Do this until you are on the INPUT your CABLE or SAT BOX is plugged into.
-You should then see the CABLE or SAT programming show on your TV.
HINT: Your TV will most likely list the TV INPUTS as: HDMI 1, HDMI 2, HDMI 3, VGA, Component 1, Component 2, and so on.
If you still see NO SIGNAL on your TV screen, see the next step below…

2 – If you have your TV on the correct INPUT or SOURCE and you still see NO SIGNAL…
CABLE OR SAT BOX NEEDS RESET
-Remove or unplug the power cable from the Cable TV or SAT set top box.
-Keep it unplugged for 2 to 3 minutes.
-Plug the power cable back into your Cable or SAT set top box.
-Give it some time for the Cable or SAT box to power up, get the signal, and initialize.
If you still see NO SIGNAL on your TV screen, see the next step below…

3 – If you have reset the Cable or SAT box and still have the NO SIGNAL…
UNPLUG THE CABLE GOING FROM THE TV TO YOUR CABLE OR SAT BOX
-Remove the HDMI cable or other cables from your Cable TV or SAT set top box.
-Keep the cable unplugged for 2 to 3 minutes.
-Plug the HDMI cable or other cables back in.
-Give it some time for the Cable or SAT box to get the signal and initialize.
HINT: Make sure all the cables that are connected to your Cable or SAT box and your TV are tight, undamaged, and secured.

4 – If all of your TVs are affected with the NO SIGNAL screen…
BE SURE THE COAX CABLES OR ETHERNET CABLES ARE SECURE or CABLE OR SAT IS DOWN TEMPORARILY
-Be sure to check the ones where the CABLE or SAT come into your home.
-Be sure ALL Ethernet and Coax cables are secure.
-Call your CABLE or SAT provider to see if there is an outage.
-Realign your Dish if you have SATELLITE.

I have a goodmans TV is having issues, sky box works fine through the hdmi but, ps3 no display or sound through the same port, my ps4 gets pic but no sound, both consoles have been tested on other tvs


1.Put your PS3 on standby.
2. Unplug the power lead.
3. Connect HDMI cable to HDMI out on PS3 and HDMI in on TV
4. Connect PS3 so that the red standby light is showing
5. Hold down the On/Off button until you hear a second beep. The PS3 will try and detect the display output settings on your monitor.

Hi I have a 32 inch hd vizio tv and a ps3 system and I bought s Belkin hdmi audio and video cable and I'm trying to figure out how connect the cable to the tv and ps3 to get hd channels and hd games and...


Cable: First you need to be using an HD Cable box to get the HD channels that your provider offers. if you don't, you can't get HD channels. Keep in mind that not all of the channels that your provider offers are in HD. Out of the 300+ channels that my provider Cox Communications in Las Vegas offers, they offer 91 of them in HD. If you have an HD box, you need to go into the settings menu and make sure that your video output is set to constant as you do not want it bouncing between different resolutions when you change channels. In your case you will have two options, 720p and 1080i (1080p does not exist for cable due to the amount of bandwidth required). Choose 720p because your set is under 40" and you won't see a a difference between 720p and 1080i except for that because it's progressive, HD may actually look better. (NOTE: although your analog channels will display at 720p, they are not in HD. They are simply up converted SD so don't expect that they will look like HD channels.) Also be sure to set your audio settings on your box to "HDMI out."
In general, HDMI devices should automatically detect HDMI input but since I don't know what kind of box you are using, it is possible that HDMI-out is disabled in the settings. My box (Scientific Atlanta) doesn't have that option, but I don't know about others. As far as the set is concerned, plug the HDMI cable into the input you want to use (if it's a new Vizio, I'm assuming there are three inputs as that's what my 32" Vizio in the kids' room has) and the set will auto-detect the HDMI input and automatically set the resolution accordingly.
SIDE NOTE: The only other way you're going to get HD channels from cable without a box is if you're using your COAX cable directly in to the TV and that is only if your cable provider has them floating on the line and you're only going to get the 5 major networks and Univision in HD.
PS3: This is even easier. WIth your PS3 powered off and your TV powered on, connect one end of your HDMI cable to the HDMI out on the PS3 and the other end to the appropriate HDMI input on your TV (of your choosing). Power on your PS3. Your TV will automatically detect the HDMI input from the PS3 and put that HDMI input on the screen. You will get an on-screen message from the PS3 detecting HDMI and it will ask you if you want o use HDMI or words to that effect (I can't remember the exact message... it's been a while). Choose "yes" and it will adjust the picture accordingly and should automatically choose the highest video resolution your television can display. To verify your settings, first hit the "guide" button on your Vizio remote control and in the upper right corner it will tell you at exactly what resolution it is displaying at. If it's not where you want it to be, on your PS3, go the Settings Menu and scroll down to "Display Settings" and the first item on the list is "Video Output Settings." Follow the step by step on screen menu prompts to determine your display settings, and choose "automatic" when prompted. If everything is copasedic, the highest resolution your television can display at will be listed at the top (and will be the current setting) and all of the other resolutions will be listed below it. If something is wrong between the "handshake" between the HDMI from the PS3 to the TV and it doesn't display in HD, go back into Video Output Settings" and when prompted, choose manual in stead and set the resolution on the PS3 the highest your TV can display. NOTE: Most 32" TV's have a maximum resolution of 720p fir the reasons I stated earlier. Check your manual for the specifics on yours. Furthermore, all PS3 games are in 720p so even if you have a 1080p TV, don't expect higher resolutions than that. AS far as Netflix is concerned, not all of their programming is in HD. The scale for Netflix is SD/Low/Medium/High/X-High. HD/Low/Medium/High/X-High, your quality depends on the program and strength of your Internet connection.
Closing: I'm a little confused by your issue as HDMI is automatic and you should automatically be getting HD so the only other thing I can think of is that your display needs calibrating and you just think you aren't getting HD. In order to get the most out of your new TV and your PS3, I would highly recommend that you calibrate your set with a Blu-Ray calibration disc that comes with color filters. It will take you about an hour or so to get the hang of and use correctly but the results will be very noticeable. The presets that come out of the box and the settings that they use on the floor in the store are awful and you don't realize how much you've been missing in picture quality until you calibrate. Do not rent this disc from Netflix as it does not come eith the color filters. You can buy a calibration disc at Amazon. I got the DVE one, from what I understand, the Spears and Munsel one is very good as well.

I have directv hd service, I recently bought a surround system, can you help me with the connection? My sat. reciever has an hdmi out as do my surround receiver and my tv


It is always helpful if you give model and make of the equipment involved. We can be more specific and accurate that way.
It si a very straight forward connection and you need two HDMI cables.
1) Connect the Satellite Box's HDMI out to the Receivers HDMI In ( any one of the sockets labeled TV/SAT or Video AUX etc ).
2) Connect the Receiver's HDMI out to the TV's HDMI In.
Every thing will work fine except if you switch off the power of some receivers the TV will stop getting HDMI signals ( ie no sound or video if Receiver is Off )

The other way of connecting is to connect the SAT BOX's HDMI cable directly to the TV's HDMI In and if your SAT BOX has a digital Audio out ( Optical or Coaxial ) connect that to the Receivers Digital In. This way you will need only one HDMI cable and one Optic fiber or Coaxial cable. And the advantage is even if the Receiver is Off you can watch video and hear its sound through the TV.

PS3 hdmi only working on some displays


I have noticed using an HDMI cable that with some of the newer tvs you have to set up the tv also to enable HDMI for a game system. Like you said before internet tv and blueray dvd player work fine. Try adjusting the settings on the tvs themselves. I have a 50in DLP mitsubishi, and had a very troubling time getting my ps3 to work on that particular tv set while it worked flawlessly on other sets. And what I had to do was enter my tv setup menu and then power on my ps3 with both my AV and HDMI cables connected, it would pick up the AV first. Then I would alter the video settings on the PS3 for HDMI, and unplug the AV cable. Exit the tv menu and then reenter it. Then I had to setup my HDMI port from the tv to game in order for it to work, where you can set options ar usually like cable/dvd/sat, and so on. Without my TV being set to game that way it would not work. Try this and see if it helps. Good Luck.

After installation of ps3 and blue -ray disc remote control. tried using remote to turn on and play a dvd dics to no avail nothing works the ps3 player nor the remote does't appear to recognize each other...


Ive had the same problem with mine. I have a universal remote and a blu ray player separately installed on my tv. The only way i was able to play the ps3 without calling geek squad to reconfigure my tv was to unplug the blu ray and put the ps3 in its spot and push watch bluray. It worked great.

No surround sound from my PS3 through the Onkyo 5100. Video OK


Unfortunately only the higher end Onkyo Reciever pass audio over HDMI for sound. 605,705,805,905 exc. Your reciever will carry Video over HDMI but you will need a digital optical cable for sound.



thanks.
