Issue with Official HDMI cable

I bought an HDMI cable the official one from Sony back in January, oddly after I bought a new HDTV it soon stopped working, I thought it may have been the HDTV or the PS3 itself but it turned out to be a faulty cable. I returned the same one and two weeks later I am experiencing the same issue with a new cable, is it the PS3 or the TV frying the cable or something. I used an unofficial cable and its not giving any problem... for now at least.

Sony's internet browser as well as newer games require the newest official firmware to work, as a way of stopping hacking and/or piracy. Your options are switch back to official firmware, or wait until someone in the homebrew community comes up with a fix.

Try entering Recovery Mode and choose "Restore Default Settings".


If that doesn't help, you may have an HDMI port failure - which will require returning the unit to Sony or sending it to a third-party PS3 repair shop.

Make sure you are using the correct cable. If you are using a HDTV make sure you are using a official HDMI cable. If you are using RGB/SCART, make sure you TV is compatible.

Hdmi Issue

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.
