My PS3 only works on my Plasma tv's HDMI channel. None of my other tv's have this HDMI channel. Why doesnt my PS3 work on any other channels or my other tv's? Could anyone help out with that?

Ressetig the ps3 on a new tv


Sounds like the Tv your using is faulty. Its could have hardware failure. You did say it PS3 was working on hdmi on a plasma. If your using the default hdmi cable that came with ps3 that also can be faulty. I have always had problems with the default hdmi so i bought a new one that was not SONY and it works beautifully. Another thing the black screen with green is a video cable or graphics issue.

Does this tv work if there is no ps3 connected? if so i recommend using the standard PS3 Component AV Cable. see if that will let you reset your ps3.

I have a new slimline DVD and a sony bravia HD tv. My PS3 worked with the basis cable and I recently purchased an HDMI cable and now it won't work on any of my 6 AV channels, including 1 of the 2 HDMI...


Hi,

All you have to do is reset the video settings on the PS3. Hold down the power button until you hear a single beep, then press it again.

That should have reset the video settings so you can play on the new TV.

Ps3 won't transmit on tv, tv works ps3 is running, checked all cords


You need to check and make sure that you are trying to view the PS3's output on the proper channel or input on your TV. If you need to scroll through every channel and input.

If that doesn't work try replacing the A/V or HDMI cables. If it still doesn't work you may need to send it to Sony and have it replaced. The video output section of the console may be bad or not functioning correctly.

If you have a friend with a PS3 try to see if they will bring their's over and let you test it out. If their PS3 won't display then it's something wrong with the wires or the TV.

Sound keeps cutting out momentarily on ps3 connected to samsung plasma tv via hdmi cable


Make sure game disk is clean and scratch free. Try and hook up the video with original AV cables (Red,Wht,Ywl) and unplug HDMI.Try another HDMI cable. If none of these help you could have bigger problems. Good Luck.

Cant tune ps3 to lg tv


Be sure you have the HDMI cable in the correct slot for the input channel you are trying to connect. Try another input channel like HDMI 2, 3, or 4 depending on how many channels you have. If you have another TV with HDMI, try plugging it in the other one to see if it is a problem with your TV or the PS3.
