My PS3 wont work through my HDMI cable. Help?

53 replies 89793 views Edited Dec 8, 2010

I've already looked around the boards to see if I can find a solution, but no such luck.

 

It works fine through the AV cables, but when I switch to HDMI, the screen displays: "No Signal. Check connected device's power, cable connection and source selection." All of which are fine. I have tried holding the power button for 5 seconds and changing the settings to HDMI, none of which seem to work.

 

I know there isn't a problem with the TV or the cable as I tested it out with a different input.

 

I have a Samsung LE32C530 32-inch wide-screen 1080p 50Hz LCD TV. PS3 is about 2 years old.

 

Any help would be hugely appreciated.

Make sure it's  a 1.3 compatable HDMI cable  on PS3.  ( I bought a cheap one at first & got that message - official Sony is always best)

Maybe try connecting the opposite end of HDMI to ps3 - Without all the details of your cables the TV capabilities & model info is only half the story.

Like did the same HDMI cable used to work before on the same TV & PS3 before ?

You need to put your PS3 on standby mode, hold the power button until you hear 2 beeps. The PS3 will automatically scan the Hdmi cable.

The Cable is High Spec V1.3b. I have had it working with my PS3 on a previous TV.

I tried that before, but I still get the same result.

That is not standby mode.  That is just a hard video reset.  Standby mode is when your ps3 is in sleep mode.  It is waiting on standby for activity.   Sometimes you have to wait up to 30secs for your tv to see recognize your PS3 after you do the hard video reset.  Try it again and let the PS3 and TV find each other.

So the only thing that's different now is your samsung TV  - 

Try connecting the PS3 HDMI to a different port on your Samsung TV .

Or try the PS3 on a different HD TV if possible see if the HDMI connection still works.

 

Could be the Samsung TV can't pick up the output signal for a specific resolution -

If possible change PS3 HDMI output  in custom settings.

firstly try outputting at   576P   &  720p  only

If no change then try at   576p   &   1080 i   only .

 

The PS3 will try using maximum resolution - 1080p because it detects the TV supports it  - but if the Samsung has a fault you wouldn't see it at 1080p.

Seems strange to me you've only had this problem when you switched to the Samsung TV. (i'd guess that's the fault somehow)

Connect the standard A/V cable to your TV on the appropriate input

 

go to display settings in the XMB

 

connect the the HDMI cable to the PS3 and HDMI input on your TV

 

enable the split screen or PIP fucntion on your tv and get it to show the A/V input on one and the HDMI on the other

 

in the display settings on the PS3 xmb try the HDMI setting and choose " Manual ", try the picture resolutions srarting with the lowest first, 480i/576i all the way through to 1080i

The PS3 Can't output  through AV   &  HDMI at same time  , So P.I.P.   function won't display both images at same time.

The samsung is the likely problem, not the PS3 output.

Try putting it in HDMI slot 1. I tried it in slot 4 and there was no signal but slot 1 seems to work fine. Now sure why.
