There maybe some problem with your TVs resolution. ps3 outputs full hd
high resolution video(1080p) through its HDMI. May be your TV is not
supporting that resolution. Connect ps3's component video out to your TV's component video input
and then try. if it ask for any resolution selection. select 720p or
1080i, above that resolution your TV will not support. Your tv is hd ready
one, not full hd. ps3 's HDMI out is full hd (1080p). or try this
Connect your ps3 to any full hd tv and then goto video setup of ps3.
change resolution to 1080i (down scaling ). then connect to your TV via HDMI. surly u will get the video. ok
If it's the first time using your PS3, use the composite cables that came with it. Turn on the PS3 go to video settings and switch the input to HDMI. After you've switched to HDMI, turn the PS3 off and connect your HDMI cable, go back to video settings and change the resolution to 1080p. If this isn't the first time you've used HDMI for your PS3, make sure your T.V. is on the correct input. If the T.V. is on the correct input, try switching the HDMI cable to a different input. If that doesn't work try using a different HDMI cable, testing different HDMI connections if you're still getting the black screen. If none of those work then it's probably a problem with the PS3, but just to make sure try plugging something else with HDMI to see if that works. If another HDMI device works, then it's your PS3, if it doesn't then it could be a problem with your HDMI connections on the T.V.
So you are using this cable to connect to the TV? On this cable is there only a red, yellow & white connector? This is known as an S-Video or AV cable.
Can you make sure you are connecting it in the right part of your TV. Once connecting it you will need to select the AV input on your TV or you may need to tune the TV into that input (depending on your TV age/model)
The best connection for the PS3 would be the HDMI cable which is one lead with one connector at either end (though this is for HD TVs only)
If your TV is HD then the very best way to connect it is to use HDMI cables. These cables carry HD Video and Audio. both the PS3 & LG HT902 have HDMI connectors so if your TV does then these are all you need.
Connect one from the PS3 to an Input on the LG then one from the Output on the LG yo your TV.
I would not buy the cables locally because you will likely pay $25 to $50 each. You can get them on ebay or from Monoprice.com for about $5.
ok here's what you do. Hook up your ps3 to your hd via hdmi cable then turn the tv on first. Then turn the power on to your ps3 and switch tv to hdmi. wait a while then a screen should come up and you should see and screen where it says an hdmi device is connected do u want to accept theses settings say yes. sometimes the "handshake" doesn't happen properly. If u already know this or have tried this it could be that your tv needs a firmware update, happened to me.
There is no substitute for HDMI. However, the 'digital in' cable connection that you want to use is still digital and will sound almost exactly the same. The differences are barely noticeable to the human ear. Here is a list for you to see the pecking order of each type of connection.
Audio connections from best to least go in this order:
1. HDMI (digital)
2. Fiber optic (digital)
3. Coax - Digital (digital) <--- The one you want to use.
4. Component (analog)
5. RCA/AV (analog)
Video connections from best to least go in this order:
1. HDMI (full HD digital)
2. Component (Blue, green, red, white, red - HD analog)
4. RCA/AV (Yellow, white, red)
In reference to the comment you added to our chat session:
Just connect your receiver to your TV using the same cable your receiver is currently using to connect to your TV, be it Composite, S-Video, or Component. Just switch your TV to that input when you need to set-up something on the receiver.
Connect the PS3 to your TV with the hdmi cable and to the surround sound system with a digital optical cable, then set your PS3 to output sound through the optical port (through the sound options menu) and you're good to go!
