Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

PS3 no picture and no sound

I have a 40gb PS3 (5 months old). All firmwares are up to date. It's connected to a Sony HD LCD tv via HDMI. I use it daily and it was working fine yesterday morning. However I turned it on last night and nothing - no sound and no picture. All the lights are coming on as normal, and when I put a game in even the screen resolution info on the tv is showing that the output from the PS3 is changing from 1080 to 720 etc, but I see and hear nothing. The last thing I did yesterday morning was download a demo from PSN Store, I installed the demo but didn't play it, just shut down the PS3 as normal. I've tried the hold the on/off button for 5 seconds process and all that has done is set my resolution to 576, I still have no picture or sound. Can anybody help?

    Thanks, it's now working again - the good old 'turn it off, turn it back on' approach has done the trick again, I just hadn't tried cutting the power completely.

Try turning the system off completely with the main power switch on the back of the console. If that doesnt work call Sony technical support for further help.

How do I get my PS3 to work over hdmi?


Try swapping out HDMI cable. The version of cable. (1.2, 1.4 etc ) might be too old/faulty for PS3.

If your Tv is HD ready and not Full HD lower the video quality in the PS3 settings

Connecting ps3 to hd tv


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.

JVC LT-32DS75SJ issue with HDMI


Try this

1. Turn ON TV
2. Connect PS3 to TV HDMI input
3. select TV HDMI input for PS3
4. turn OFF PS3 if it is ON
5. Press and hold the [I/O]Power button until the PS3 until you get the "HDMI Detected" message.

Also, this TV has a circuit that deactivates the HDMI if the rear cover is removed. It is possible the HDMI may have been turned OFF. This is reset in the service menu of the TV.

I have looked up the infomation on your TV I noticed that your TV has two HDMI input plugs. Since your SONY BRAVIA is hooked up to one port, you need to buy another HDMI cable for your PS3. On your tv remote you should have an option to switch from video 1 to video 2 so then you can switch from the SONY BRAVIA to the PS3 the problem is you will only hear your PS3 Sound from you TV. If you want to hear your PS3 sound from your SONY BRAVIA you need to buy an optical cable (also called TOSLINK) to connect from your PS3 to the SONY BRAVIA.

Hope that helps!

PS3 HDMI


Have you updated your firmware, earlier firmware had issues with HDMI cables and pic resolution. Make sure you have the latest firmware, I think its version 2.01 now. Also what kind of HDMI cable are you using, quality cable or some $10 jobby from Joe's Hardware Store. Check the cable with another device to eliminate that as a problem.
