The main reason of HDMI black screen problem due to HDMI cable may
damage and not proper connected to the PS3 console. Please follow below
step to troubleshoot PS3 HDMI cables problem:1) Restart your
2) Look for loose cables.
3) Try to unplug all cables except the power cord, and plug them
If you found out that your HDMI cable is damage, do borrow your friend
cable and have a try. If your friend cable work fine, and the black
screen error disappear. Then you can buy a brand new HDMI cable for
replacement. Tips 2: If tips 1 not working,
you need to go another step deeper by reset your console. Most of the
PS3 gamers not aware that Sony actually done include in the black screen
troubleshooting method and other HDMI problems in the PS3 manual, you
can find it under troubleshooting section - topic "console reset". If
you do it correctly, the console reset fix will allow you to reset back
your PS3 to its default HDMI settings without
impacting your gamer profile, and other storage data in hard drive. You
will need to perform the
1. Place your PS3 in stand-by mode.
2. Hold down the touch power button until a series of beeps are heard.
3. Listen for one long beep, followed to two shorter beeps.
4. Release the power button.
5. Follow the instructions on screen.
Your PS3 auto-adjusted to the HDMI Input cable, so you will need to find somewhere that you can either get an HDMI cable or a HDMI TV, so you can view the screen. Then you can hook up the A/V jacks and go to your Videa and Audio Output Settings and choose them, disabling the HDMI hookup selected. Then you'll be back in business!
i currently have the exact same problem...i always play HDMI but i went home from college for thanksgiving and wanted to play on a regular AV jack TV, hooked up, and have no picture whatsoever...and i think it's because of the settings on the PS3 since it's set to send out an HD signal...Well i found this straight from Playstation3.com, on the support/troubleshooting section
If the video output settings on the PLAYSTATION®3 do not match
those of the cable or TV in use, there may be no picture. If the screen
goes blank, turn off the system.
Then, with only the PLAYSTATION®3 and the TV connected,
touch the system's power button for more than 5 seconds to turn the
system back on. The video output settings will automatically be reset
to the standard resolution."
Most new HDMI DVD players use High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection (HDCP)on the HDMI output.If you try to play this on an older TV that is not compliant with these new standards it will not work.This standard came out late in 2004 that is why your older player still works. There is also a service bulletin from JVC about upgrading the software on your TV for HDMI compatiblity issues.If you want a pdf file of the bulletin I can send it to you.
