Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
This is the second PS3 i have had problems with as the last one was replaced by sony. When left turned off for a while (say a day at most) when i turn it back on it won't give any output through the HDMI. The screen goes black but that is it. I have tried swapping to the scart lead and it works fine, and have tried re-setting the system endless times and resetting the HDMI settings but still does not work. If left for a couple of hours it will then work again, without me touching anything or fiddling with the cables!
Any reason why this is happening to me for the second time.
I had the same problems with the hdmi not working on my ps3 ......what made my case weird was when i pluged in the very same hdmi cable into my dish hd box it worked fine....i was just aboout to send the ps3 out for repair when i came across this website and i followed the steps(basicly just unpluged the tv for 15 secs) and it worked!!!!!!! you saved me $150 (the cost to send it to sony) THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!

Worked a treat. The guy on the phone from Sony had no idea, and thought it was because I wasnt on the correct HDMI channel!!! But turning the tv off at the wall for 15 seconds worked perfectly first time! Thanks for the fix!!!!

Are you sure it is not a problem with the HDMI ports on the TV?
