    I get a blue screen when i turn on my playstation 3 saying no signal but tv works great just no display when using hdmi

  • robnsteph Nov 17, 2008

    I have the exact problem. I just went and exchanged my PS3 thinking that there is a default with it, but my new one is doing the exact same thing. Turning the TV off and then back on does not work for me. I also noticed that on my TV under the settings option, that the HDMI is not highlited so there is no way that I can change or modify that option there. If anybody has another solution to fix this issue, please help!?!

How do I change my resolution on my 32 inch flat screen from 480 to 720


Assuming your TV will support 720p signals, check how you have the TV connected to the Playstation 3. Change your video cable to component video or HDMI, depending on the TV. (The Composite input is limited to 480i (SD) pictures. The same is true for a SCART connection.) Put the TV to the new input by pressing the Input Source button on the TV Remote or through the menu depending on your TV.

You may have to do the first of these steps before changing your cables and the TV input source (I'm not sure). On the Playstation, select Settings and then Display Settings.Choose your video output (component or HDMI). Next select all resolution that the TV can use. (Most 32" TVs only do 720p. There are some that can do 1080i or 1080p.) Confirm the video connection works. Then Save your settings.

For screen captures of the steps, see: http://manuals.playstation.net/document/en/ps3/3_15/settings/videooutput.html . You should always turn off the TV and the Playstation before swapping the cables. (So you may need to stop and save after setting the output to component video. Then return to the Display Settings menu.)

I hope this helps.

I have a panasonic Th-42pv500a. I'm trying to connect my ps3 Via HDMI but it won't work. The ps3 works in my other tv with the same HDMI cable. And the foxtel box works in the panasonic with the same HDMI...


the playstation detects that you are changing display settings. hopefully you still have the old red yellow and white cord that we all used to use to plug in stuff to your tv . use this cord to connect your playstation to the tv, it should pop up that you want to change display settings. then after you go through that unplug and recconect the hdmi and it should run you through it again, Another option - when you plug in your ps3 to the tv , turn everything on the tv and playstation. if nothing pops up turn off your tv and playstation , literaly unplug them from the outlet for a good minute then plug everything back in and you should fix it that way. hope one of these work

I hooked my ps3 to the hdmi connection in the back,neither the system or the tv recognize the connection, i get a blank screen.I know the hdmi cable is good because I tested it.Any suggestions?


It could be that the PS3 is outputting a higher resolution than your TV can handle. Here is an excerpt from the PS3 manual:
If the video output settings do not match those required for the TV in use, the screen may go blank when the resolution is changed. The screen should, however, automatically go back to its original resolution after a while. If the screen remains blank for more than 30 seconds, turn off the system. Then touch the power button on the system front for at least five seconds to turn the system on again. The video output settings will automatically be reset to the standard resolution.

How do i connect a playstation 3 to a philips tv


The PlayStation 3 (PS3) is a high-definition gaming console that supports both standard AV connections and high-resolution connections (such as HDMI). Most of the older Philips TVs come with a standard AV input. Newer, flat-panel Philips TVs include standard AV inputs and high-resolution inputs. To get the best video quality out of your PS3, using an HDMI connection is recommended if the option is available. The PS3 does not include an HDMI cable, only a standard AV cable

Standard AV
  • 1 Turn off the PS3.
  • 2 Connect the flat end of the PS3 AV cable into the "AV Multi Out" port on the back of the PS3.
  • 3 Connect the "red," "white" and "yellow" prongs on the opposite end of the PS3 AV cable into the corresponding "red," "white" and "yellow" AV inputs on the TV (usually located on the side or in the back).
  • 4 Press the "Source" button on the Philips TV remote.
  • 5 Select the "AV" video display mode.
  • 6 Turn on the PS3. The PS3 logo will appear on the screen.
  • HDMI Connection

    When my ps3 is hooked up to my proscan lcd 37LC30S60 via hdmi it has a blank screen that says no support


    Have you tried changing the settings on the ps3? If you go into the display settings adjust them Also if you want to change the ps3 to the default
  • 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 the system off.
  • 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.
  • Hope this helps.
    Thank you,

    42" Sanyo HDTV with 3 HDMI Inputs


    Everybody is having problems with sony products and HDMI cables. It's on a lot of forums. So, your not alone.
    Most of the solutions are:
    1. Unplug your TV for 30 mins.
    2. Plug TV back in and put it on HDMI for PS3.
    3. Hold down the power button for 10secs on the PS3
    That should solve the problem.

    Hi ..I was wondering if Playstation 3 and the blue ray features would work with my Maxent MX-42VM10 Plasma Screen TV? Thank you ...kev


    Yes and no.  Yes you can connect the PS3 to the plasma using the component video inputs, games and videos will play fine.  However the native resolution of the TV is only 480P (852X480 pixels) which is much lower than the 1080P that the PS3 is capable of.  If you want a tv that can get the best possible image from the PS3 you would need a TV with full 1080P resolution and HDMI ports for digital input. Hope this helps!

    I am a TV repair technician and what you are experiencing with your plasma and PS3 is a HDMI compatibility problem. The Philips plasma and the PS3 electronic handshaking (EDID) are not right. This happens alot with an older version of HDMI like 1.1(Philips Plasma) and a newer version of HDMI 1.3 (PS3). A tv firmware or PS3 firmware update will not resolve the problem. I would recommend using the HD component video cables and that should work just fine for playing High Definition BluRay movies.

    Trying to connect playstation 3 to my tv having no success


    For real try this:
    Turn off the tv as well as the ps3 (to where the red ps3 light is on); Then just hold down the power button in the front for like 15 seconds or so, at least until you hear a beep. Then turn the Tv back on, and hopefully once you get the tv back on the correct hdmi input, you'll see that little message offering you to switch to optimum settings.
    Hope it works. Did for me.
