Silly question -- but are you sure your Sony TV is on the correct HDMI channel? My 32 inch LCD has HDMI1, HDMI2, HDMI3. You must make sure you plug the PS3 into the correct HDMI channel and make sure you're tuned into the same one.
In most cases the HDMI issues are the source itself. Try another item like a DVD player or BluRay player. If they work then its a compatibility issue. If they don't then the HDMI receiver board in the TV is bad. Please take a moment to rate my answer. Thanks...
You must use the remote to toggle the player OUT of HDMI output mode to use the non-HDMI outputs (like standard RCA-jack VGA or s-video or component video output). The device displays black screen by default unless you're using HDMI, so it's not possible to see the menu if using s-video. The manual states to press the 'Progressive' button to change modes. Unfortunately, you can't see what mode you're toggling through until you hit the right one (Toshiba blew it here!!). Power on the device WITHOUT a disk in (you can't change modes during DVD playback mode). There are four output modes, so press the 'Progressive' button on the remote and wait for 3 to 5 seconds for the player to switch output modes. Repeat this up to four times to cycle through the available modes. During one of the modes, you should see output to your screen through the cable hookup you've physically attached. You will also notice the led's on the front panel go on and off during the process at times. If you ARE using HDMI, then you have to select a mode your TV or monitor can handle. When in HDMI mode, you'll notice the front panel HDMI led's will light up. There are five modes here - 480P, 720P, 1080i, 1080P and AUTO (when all four leds are lit). Select the HDMI mode that your TV works with. Good luck ~ and don't bother calling Toshiba support ... friggin waste of time talking to a recording that's dumber than Sh#@!!

Ok I have read what you were saying about your TV and after much consideration I dont think its the bulb because a bulb does not get better as it warms up! (most bulbs that are bad get worse as the TV warms up!) But capaciters do act this way when they go bad (stable when they warm up!) so I would have to say the control circut has one or more bad capiciters on it and will need replaced!
I hope this helps greatly!

Dood, if you really needed a new mother board for your TV the biggest problem on your hands would be finding the replacement. The motherboard is so easy to remove it would make you laugh. I think it has four clip bridges and four of five screws. You seperate the clip bridges, take the screws off and maybe take a picture of the cables so you remember where to plug them in and you're done. Like I said, take a snap shot so you dont forget where to put your cables back in.
The front pannel,on and off channels and vol. switches are going bad,if you dont use the front pannel, unplug the set and remove the back cover,just below the top screws you can look under and see the top of the picture tubes,in front of the middle tube is a little board about two inches wide and four inches long,unplug the right plug it has one black and five or so white wires,this is the top cable,then just use your remote.
