First, you need to set the playstation to display on HDMI out.

Plug the HDMI cable into the TV and into the PS3.

Use the PS3 to setup the video settings to 720p which every HDTV can display. Then switch the TV-out to HDMI and it should display.

Also consult your televisions manual to set it up for HDMI input as well. Make sure that the TV allows sound through the HDMI port as some older HDTV's didn't have that ability.

If you still have a problem; please let me know! I hope it helps you out

DVD Player Quick Connect Tips


There has been a lot of confusion lately about how best to connect your new DVD or Blueray player to your TV set. For many this has been a nightmare since the introduction of the new Component and HDMI versions of Higher Priced DVD and Blueray disc players.

Remember that your new Blueray player will play DVD's as well as Blueray Disc format movies.

For the common connection that most people use, there are only 3 wires to consider. Yellow for Video, Red and White for Stereo. Always use the line out jacks on the back of the player to connect to the TV. Use the Line in (Video In) jacks on the TV set.

The only thing to remember here is to match the colors exactly and select the video source from your TV remote control. If all those numbers and buttons are confusing to you, just memorize where your Source button is on the remote, and choose one input at a time until your DVD welcome screen appears.

The next higher quality Video source will be the component Video outputs on your DVD or BlueRay player. These will be Red, Green And Blue.

Also note that you will need a red/white audio cable for sound with these connections since the component outputs only transmit Video.
You will be able to see the audio connectors close to the red blue and green component outputs on most players. All connectors on your player will be outputs, unless you bought a DVD recorder and player.
We will reference only the player type at this time.
As mentioned before, you only need to match the wires from the DVD or BlueRay output to the exact input connectors on your TV, but now the audio connectors need to be used as well.

Use your source selector on the remote as before to View your movie.

The easiest connector to hit the market so far is the HDMI version, which combines the Video signal as well as the audio signal into a single manageable cable. If your TV set doesn't have this connector you will need to use one of the above methods to connect your system.

To use the HDMI you need only plug it in to the connector designed for its use on both the TV as well as the player.

There is very little chance you will connect this to the wrong port, but just in case your HDMI TV and DVD/Blueray player are equipped with an Optional USB port, you should read the panel closely to be sure you have the right port. Remember, these connectors should never be forced on. If they are too tight to connect, you may have chosen the USB port by mistake.

After installation of ps3 and blue -ray disc remote control. tried using remote to turn on and play a dvd dics to no avail nothing works the ps3 player nor the remote does't appear to recognize each other...


Ive had the same problem with mine. I have a universal remote and a blu ray player separately installed on my tv. The only way i was able to play the ps3 without calling geek squad to reconfigure my tv was to unplug the blu ray and put the ps3 in its spot and push watch bluray. It worked great.

When tv is wired to media center and then to blueray dvd , disc will not play. Non blueray disc will play. When tv wired directly to blueray player, blueray disc runs fine. Cables are hdmi


Hi.

When you say disk will not play I assume the BRD player does not start playing.

If the Blue ray unit does not start at all and stays in stand by , then the HDMI cable you are using to connect to TV, or HDMI port on TV may be defective.
Try replacing cable and swapping HDMI ports.

No connection/ no signal


Either the new BlueRay player is defective, the HDMI port on the player is defective, or the port on your set is defective.

Try connecting it with component RGB/AV cables, or S-Video/AV cables and see if everything works. If so, then you know that it is either the port on the BlueRay, or the port on the TV set.

To test the HDMI port on your TV, you will need another HDMI device to try.
