I just flew back home from college and when I connected my ps3 to my TV there was no signal. I tried with both composite and HDMI cable and for a while was able to change the settings to HDMI 1080p, after playing about five minutes my screen got a green distortion and was left only with audio I did a reset and couldnt even get audio. Ive tried doing a hardware reset and nothing. I took it to a shop and they solved nothing, I just noticed connecting my controllers via usb doesnt charge them (dont know if that was an original problems or the guys that tried to fix it). Im thinking something got broken or fried. Ohh and the console powers up and takes disks- ejects them with no problem. Any ideas? Thanks!

Sometimes the PS3 automatically outputs it's video and audio signals in composite form. Try going back to your original composite cables and setting your system to output in HDMI. Those options would be under "Display Settings". Hope this helps!
This receiver doesn't support processing of video signal, only switching. This means that it can output only the same format of video. Only some more expensive models do upscaling from component/composite to HDMI out.
From HDMI out, you can output only signal that came via HDMI in 1-3. For component out, you can output only component in. The same for composite.
So in order to use wii through receiver to TV, you must connect receiver and TV also via the component cables.
Or other option is to connect component from wii directly to TV and connect only audio to receiver.
with Denon you have to go into the menu and "assign" the inputs.
You have to select if you are using HDMI, s-video composite etc.
If your unit has upconverting remember that it will upconvert a s-video signal to HDMI but not the other way around.
HDMI is a digital signal composite, s-video etc are analog therefore you could not use the HDMI output from your PS3 but then use the red, blue green composite outputs from your receiver to run to your tv.
hook up computer straight to t.v with hdmi cable. then get two aux cables (usually red and white) and run them straight from tv audio OUTPUT to audio INPUT on bose system. them anytime you want surround sound even when your watching tv just press the aux button on the bose system controller. should be perfect.
I agree with the guy from Sony, the reason for this is the HDMI cable should support the transfer of audio and video over the same cable, if your only getting video over it, the cable could be defective, or its possible that you have another cable in the spot where speakers should go that is over riding the HDMI.
What exactly is the HDMI cable plugged into? Is it direct from TV to PS3? If you have a stereo set lying around that supports HDMI - try having it run through that. Is the TV muted? check if you can get sound while watching normal TV channels. Worst comes to worst, use RCA Plugs remembering that the composite video is (yellow) and stereo audio is (white and red). You don't need to connect the composite video, but connect the stereo audio.
If this did not solve the problem, please leave a comment and I'll get back to you once I can =)
To solve this, when the ps3 is in standby (solid red light), just hold the power button. It should beep on, then beep again in about 5 seconds. This will automatically search for the optimal audio video output. if if beeps on then turns off, just try again, it takes 1 or 2 tries sometimes. the reason this is happening is because your ps3 is set to one AV output, ex. composite(red yellow white), HDMI, and then you changed the cable to a different one. another way to fix it is plug both cables, HDMI and composite, into the tv and ps3, then go to settings and change the output to the desired one.
Adjust the system's video output settings. Select the best output settings for the TV in use.
1. Check the resolution supported by your TV. Resolution (video mode) varies depending on the TV type. For details, refer to the instructions supplied with the TV.
2. Select (Display Settings) under (Settings) in the home menu.
3. Select [Video Output Settings].
4. Select the connector type on your TV. Resolution (video mode) varies depending on the type of connector used.
Input connector on the TV Supported video modes (NTSC region) *1 Supported video modes (PAL region) *1 HDMI 1080p / 1080i / 720p / 480p 1080p / 1080i / 720p / 576p Component / D-Terminal *2 1080p / 1080i / 720p / 480p / 480i 1080p / 1080i / 720p / 576p / 576i Composite / S Video *3 480i 576i AV MULTI / SCART *4 480p / 480i 576p / 576i *1 The video mode options vary depending on the region where the PS3™ system was purchased. In North America, Asia and other NTSC regions, 480i video mode is displayed as [Standard (NTSC)]. In Europe and other PAL regions, 576i video mode is displayed as [Standard (PAL)]. For details, refer to the instructions supplied with the product.
*2 D-terminal is a connector type used mainly in Japan. The resolutions supported by D1-D5 are as follows: D5: 1080p / 720p / 1080i / 480p / 480i D4: 1080i / 720p / 480p / 480i D3: 1080i / 480p / 480i D2: 480p / 480i D1: 480i
*3 Composite is the connector used to connect the AV cable that is supplied with the PS3™ system. S VIDEO is a format mainly used in Japan.
*4 AV MULTI is a format mainly used in Japan. SCART is a format mainly used in Europe. If [AV MULTI / SCART] is selected, the screen allowing you to select the type of output signal will be displayed.
5. Change video output settings. Change the resolution for the video output. Depending on the connector type selected in step 4, this screen may not be displayed.
6. Set the resolution. Select all resolutions supported by the TV in use. Video will automatically be output at the highest resolution possible for the content you are playing from among the selected resolutions.* * The video resolution is selected in order of priority as follows: 1080p > 1080i > 720p > 480p/576p > Standard (NTSC:480i/PAL:576i).
If [Composite / S Video] is selected in step 4, the screen for selecting resolutions will not be displayed. If [HDMI] is selected, you can also select to automatically adjust the resolution (the HDMI device must be turned on). In this case, the screen for selecting resolutions will not be displayed.
7. Set the TV type. Select the type of TV in use. Set when only SD resolution (NTSC:480p / 480i, PAL: 576p / 576i) is to be output such as when [Composite / S Video] or [AV MULTI / SCART] is selected in step 4.
8. Check your settings. Confirm that the image displayed is at the correct resolution for the TV. You can go back to a previous screen and revise the settings by pressing the button.
9. Save your settings. The video output settings are saved on the PS3™ system. You can continue on to set audio output settings. For details on audio output, see (Settings) > (Sound Settings) > [Audio Output Settings] in this guide.
