So I think I have a tough one.
My system is the following.
PS3, AV 5:1 receiver (SONY) with hdmi inputs/output and HD ready TV (LG 720/1080i) TV
PS3 is connected to the AV Receiver through HDMI, AV receiver outputs the signal to the TV through HDMI.
This setup used to work great in the past.
I should mention here that i used to take my PS3 to a friends house often but never had problems connecting it back to my system..... well...until now.
Problem is the following: When i power up my PS3, TV understands that something gets connected ("No Signal" warning goes away) and it just stays there....I get just a blank screen. Only thing that happens is a repetitive change on TVs black variation like something is trying to connect....loosing signal and tries back on. I m not sure i m describing it well but English is not my native language, so sorry for that.
So this is where all the troubleshooting starts.... Things I 've tried:
Having done all that i ruled out the following:
So the only thing left was that PS3 hdmi output was somehow causing the problem.
So I took my PS3, plugged it on my HDMI PC monitor and powered it up. First try was unsuccessful so I tried to hold the start button to reset once more the display settings on my PS3 and BOOM flawless HDMI output on 1080p. I think I cried a little bit when I saw that HDMI port was actually working, so once I unchecked the 1080p output on display settings (as my TV doesn't support that), I unplugged PS3 from my PC monitor and plugged it back to my TV to see that I still had the exact same problem.
Knowing that my standard setup used to work just fine while all my devices PS3, AV Receiver, TV don't seem to have any problem, I m a bit frustrated and I feel being at a dead end.
Any help will be much appreciated
Looking forward for your comments
Thank you in advance

Thank you very much for your suggestion.
Unfortunately I have already tried all the suggestions in that page but the problem still remains.
Only thing l can think right now is that my TV doesn't like the HDMI signal of my PS3 and viseversa. Weird thing is that they used to like each other before this issue.
