46 inch Sony Bravia TV is 5 years old. HDMI ports 1,4 work fine but 2,3 don't.


I presume you've checked that the HDMI cables are good, and that the signal sources (e.g., blu-ray player, Roku, etc.) are working correctly. If the HDMI ports are individually selected by four buttons on your Sony remote, which is unlikely, it's possibly a problem in that remote. It's also possible that ports 2 and 3 are physically damaged by abuse. If you have ruled out all of those potential causes, this is almost certainly a problem in the way the defective ports are attached to the underlying printed circuit board inside the TV, or a flaw in that PCB. Too bad it's out of warranty. Repairing this will be a hassle if it can be done at all, and probably not cost effective. Instead, I suggest three possible workarounds for your consideration.

First, if you can find another way to get the signals into your TV, such as using the component inputs instead of HDMI, that will your cheapest and easiest alternative. This will only be doable if the signal source offers other types of outputs besides HDMI. Note that I am NOT suggesting adding any type of signal converter, just a different way of connecting the signal source to the TV.

A second alternative is to buy a multi-port HDMI switch with a remote control which you can find for less than $30 at online retailers like ebay. Plug that switch into one of your two good HDMI ports, and connect your unserved signal sources to the switch. It will be slightly less convenient to use the multi-port switch because you will need to operate one more remote control than you do now.

The third possible workaround is to buy an autosensing HDMI switch instead of the multi-port type, which would eliminate the need for the extra remote. However, an autosensing switch must have only one signal source active at any given time. This may not be possible if one of your signal sources is a streaming device that is continuously powered up. Good luck!

My ps3 is connected to hdmi cable and nothing shows on the tv, what is wrong with it?


I get this problem quite often, but it's typically not a problem at all. Usually it's that the console is set to the wrong video settings. In other words it's still trying to output to A/V or Component cables.

It's a simple fix; turn the console off, then hold down the power button until it beeps twice. That second beep means the video settings will reset, and hopefully you'll see it show up on the television screen.

If that doesn't work, it's possible the HDMI cable is faulty, so I would either test the cable or borrow one from a friend that you know actually works. If it is the cable you can get them pretty cheap online (on Amazon, for example).

Unfortunately if you're still not getting anything you may be in for a more expensive fix. Test the HDMI ports on both the PS3 and TV (use some HDMI product on the tv, and connect the PS3 using HDMI to some other working television). If it's the PS3, Sony offers some pretty thorough support on their website (here). If it's the television either go with the included component or composite cables or find yourself a new TV (sucky, I know, but they're a lot cheaper these days for a decent sized one).

If you've confirmed it's the PS3 console that's the issue (the HDMI port is faulty or something like that), again switch to component/composite cables. If you must have HDMI you could always send it in for repair (linkage here). If you're still under warranty I believe they'll repair it for free. Otherwise you're looking at some fees ($100-ish I think). Either way it's one hell of a wait time; 3 weeks minimum.

I sincerely hope it's simply a matter of resetting the video settings though.

Best of luck!

HDMI cable for the Wii but a "Component" cable which is as near to HDMI as possible. The cable has 5 plugs on it (make sure your TV has the same 5 plugs). They are available off of ebay

Sony Playstation 3, Pins to plugging in to console is broken. Would it be possible to fix it.


You mean the AV port?
If that is the issue use a HDMI cable.
The ports are part of the motherboard so you need to replace the whole thing.

HDMI PROBLEMS


Ive got a similar problem. My HDTV has a compatibility issue with the ps3 and whenever I enter a game or switch resolutions TV starts flashing between dotted white screen and ps3 screen. I have to remove the HDMI cable and then put it in again in order to fix it. (Or if you are rich just get another HDTV :D)
I would try it in another HDTV (different model and brand) to discard it being a problem with the HDMI port.

PS3 no longer communicating with TV


All: Try this -

P
erform the following steps to reset the Video Output Settings.
  1. Make sure the HDMI cable is connected to the [HDMI OUT] port on the back of the PLAYSTATION 3 system. Connect the other end of the HDMI cable into the [HDMI Input] port of the TV or display monitor.
  2. While the PLAYSTATION 3 system is in standby mode (red light on the front of the system), hold down the touch-sensitive On/Off button on the front of the system until the system goes into standby mode again . (So the light cycle would go from: red light to --> green light --> then back to red light) This will ensure that you have held down the On/Off button long enough to reset the Video Output Settings.
  3. Turn ON the PLAYSTATION 3 and once the system finishes powering up, the Video Output Settings will automatically reset to the standard resolution (or detect the current display output settings of your TV/monitor). [If resetting does not auto-detect your HDTV, see next step below.]
NOTE: As of system software update version 1.60, the PLAYSTATION 3can automatically detect an HDMI connection to a TV. If the PLAYSTATION 3 is turned on with an HDMI cable connected, the screen for switching video output settings will be displayed automatically. (Does not function unless the TV that is connected by the HDMI cable is turned on.)

As of version 1.80 of the system update for the PLAYSTATION 3, the PLAYSTATION 3 can upscale the video content of PlayStation® format software, PlayStation®2 format software, and DVDs to HD resolution.

If Resetting the Video Output Setting Did NOT Detect Your HDTV Automatically (Certain TV's Only)
With certain televisions, the PLAYSTATION 3 may not automatically detect the HDMI source (TV) which it is plugged into, even after resetting the Video Output Setting (as described above).

If resetting the Video Output Setting did not work, you may need to follow these steps to manually locate the HDMI source:

1. Connect both the AV Cable and the HDMI cable from the PLAYSTATION 3 to the corresponding (AV and HDMI) ports on your TV. 2. Proceed with resetting the Video Output Setting on the PLAYSTATION 3 again. (Follow these steps, then continue to step 3 below.)
3. Turn the TV channel to the corresponding "Input" or "Video" channel for the AV Cable connection.
4. Manually change the Video Output Settings to HDMI. (Follow these steps, then continue to step 5 below.)
5. Now switch the "Input" or "Video" channel on the TV for the HDMI port the PLAYSTATION 3 is currently plugged into.
6. Accept the display settings for HDMI before the timer runs out (30 seconds). Highlight "Yes" and press the X button.
7. You can now disconnect AV Cable from the PLAYSTATION 3 and the TV, as it is no longer needed.
