I have looked up the infomation on your TV I noticed that your TV has two HDMI input plugs. Since your SONY BRAVIA is hooked up to one port, you need to buy another HDMI cable for your PS3. On your tv remote you should have an option to switch from video 1 to video 2 so then you can switch from the SONY BRAVIA to the PS3 the problem is you will only hear your PS3 Sound from you TV. If you want to hear your PS3 sound from your SONY BRAVIA you need to buy an optical cable (also called TOSLINK) to connect from your PS3 to the SONY BRAVIA.

Hope that helps!

    If you buy the HDMI cable and hook it up you should hear sound from your tv speakers. The TOSLINK cable is only if you want to hear surround sound through the Sony BRAVIA speakers. Look at the back of your PS3 it should have a plug called optical or TOSLINK. Also look at the back of your Sony BRAVIA and it should have a TOSLINK INPUT plug. Yes you can go to best buy and buy a TOSLINK cable just make sure that the PS3 and the Sony BRAVIA have the plugs before buying the cable. If you do hook up the TOSLINK cable you probably have to enable it in the PS3 menu as well as the Sony BRAVIA Settings. Check your manuals on how to do this.
    Here is a picture of a TOSLINk Cable.

My Toshiba 32AV500U - the picture went blank.

This problem usually happens when the lamp runs out, verify how old is your TV, lamps have a life spend of aprox. 3 years, most likely you would have to replace the bulb so your TV can start running again!!

Look in your manual for a channel scan entry. It should be an item in your setup menu. What this does is re-scan for all the signals it can receive.
Once the scan is done, it should display all the channels that are viewable in your area
