My problem is that when i turn on the ps3 and the tv, and i know i am DEFINATELY on the right input, the tv doesn't show the picture. I have gotten a new hd cord that goes into hd tv's from the ps3, and the ps3 turns on fine. I think it is the little port that goes into the ps3, and i think the ps3 got knocked down and the cord damaged the port the is in the ps3 that holds the hd tv cord. It's not the tv, cause i have tried it on 3 different tv's and it hasen't worked on any of them. Over the last few day's it has been getting worse, because before i used to see like a bunch of fuzzy lines going back and forth, and could slightly see the picture. I also have tried going back to the old cord, and that didn't work ether. Sombody tell me what's wrong, or i am oing to have to fish out 500 bucks to buy a new one, and i don't feel like doing that.
Not an expert on PS3 but I'll try. Does your tv support the HD setting the PS3 is on? Does it support the frequency it is on? Frequencies can be 50Mhz and 60Mhz. HD setting could be 480p, 720p, 1080i, 1080p. If you cannot change the setting because you cannot see the settings to do it, refer to a proffesional to find out how to do it without being able to see a picture.

I would suggest hooking up via HDMI or via the composite cables. Then all you should have to do is turn on your ps3, change the input on your tv to whichever port shows the ps3 or new input device. If it doesn't for some reason recognize it as ps3, you can always go into more detail using the tv to rename that port as the PS3. Hope this is what you wanted to know!
The PS3 can be hooked up to the tv using either a HDMI cable or the old RCA (Yellow, Red, White) cables. If you are having problems viewing a picture or hearing sound, here is some trouble shooting you might want to try.
Connect the PS3 using both the HDMI and RCA cables. select the HDMI input on your tv. turn on the PS3. If you cant see a picture, press and hold the power button until you hear 2 beeps (this will take about 15 seconds). This resets the PS3 to the old RCA cables. Select the RCA input on your tv. Hopefully you can see the image and hear the PS3 now. Go to the settings on the PS3 and change the display settings to output video through the HDMI. Remember, your tv can only go as high as 1080i resolution, so you wont see anything if you select the 1080p resolution.
If this didn't work, you might have a bad signal though the HDMI cable. Unplug the tv and PS3 for atleast 30 minutes, and then connect the PS3 to the tv before you turn either one on.
If this doesn't help, then you might have a HDMI cable that isn't recognized by either your PS3 or your tv. Try replacing your HDMI cable.
If it's the first time using your PS3, use the composite cables that came with it. Turn on the PS3 go to video settings and switch the input to HDMI. After you've switched to HDMI, turn the PS3 off and connect your HDMI cable, go back to video settings and change the resolution to 1080p. If this isn't the first time you've used HDMI for your PS3, make sure your T.V. is on the correct input. If the T.V. is on the correct input, try switching the HDMI cable to a different input. If that doesn't work try using a different HDMI cable, testing different HDMI connections if you're still getting the black screen. If none of those work then it's probably a problem with the PS3, but just to make sure try plugging something else with HDMI to see if that works. If another HDMI device works, then it's your PS3, if it doesn't then it could be a problem with your HDMI connections on the T.V.
Try to find the right input ot the cable that your using. If your using HDMi cable then use the HDMI input of your tv, If your using Component Cable look for component input use the original remote of your tv and look for the right input.
Please follow these steps to solve your PS3 problem :
Step 1. Turn the PS3 off into standby (red light on)
Step 2. Press and hold the power button. It will beep as soon as you press it and then about 5 seconds later it will beep again. Let go of the power button when you hear this second beep.
Step 3. Wait for your PS3 to start.
This solution basically resets the video output back to standard definition.

As you already checked PS3 and HDMI cable, select HDMI input in TV and connect PS3 via HDMI cable. TV should show PS3 picture. And if still no joy then HDMI input port in TV is bad and need to replace input board/ main board.
the best configuration is using component AudioVideo cable.component video out from ps3 use 3 wires going to component video input to your tv (Y-Pb-Pr) and two wires for audio left.right. use av1 input on your tv to hook the audio and video. let me know if you still have issue.
