Re: My PS3 wont work through my HDMI cable. Help?

Dec 9, 2010

i know it wont output to a/v and hdmi at the same time, but it would have made it easier for the OP to see the results after selecting hdmi in the xmb,

ie a/v input would go blank and hdmi would go live..

ok i just had to do this to my tv. so pay attention 1 plug the av cable into the tv and the system. 2 have the hdmi hooked up to the system and tv 3 set your tv to the av chanel  4 go into the display settings in the xmb and set it to HDMI it will ask if the settings r correct and give a timer of 30 seconds befor it reverts back to the av cable settings. 4 click ok and switch tv out puts from av to the HDMI chanel and you should be all set to use your system in HD enjoy.

please tell me if this worked so i can use this response again.

Please let me know if this helps so i can save the response for later use.

This is happening to me as well, been using my PS3 slim with HDMI @  1080i since I purchased it last March, and it seems like since I did the  latest update to Killzone 3; the next time I tried to boot up the PS3  it just gave me a black screen of death with no sound/picture. It works  with the original AV cables,  but will not show picture or sound even  when it detects HDMI or when I manually try to switch back to it. Did a  safe mode System Restart with no luck, reset my TV settings, unplugged  everything and then reconnected everything correctly and still no dice.  My Xbox 360 works fine with the same HDMI cable in the same HDMI port. I  then tried my PS3 and HDMI cable on a buddies newer HDTV and IT  WORKED, just weird how all of a sudden my TV doesn't want to output  anything through HDMI anymore while its connected to the PS3 when it was  working for so many months, although once in awhile I would get no picture or sound, but all I had to do was switch TV inputs off HDMI and then back and that would fix it, but now it won't show a thing
Any one in the same boat as me? I'd rather  not have to spend money to downgrade to component cables, I have an  older Panasonic rear projection Model: PT-52LCX65

Can anyone help!?!

alright guys lets try this then. note you will need to write down all the information this gives before you restore the defalt settings.

so you can put it back to how you had it when its done. this will not mess with save data but you will have to reset any secondary controller that you have. secondary being any controler that dident come with the system.

note also these all have to do with the setttings option on the XMB

such as

game settings ( mostly for systems able to play psx and ps2 games)

video settings ( since this sub menu is pretty long try to write down every thing)

music settings (your audio cd import, crossfade, output frequency, bitmapping, and the dynamic normalizer)

chat settings (voice/ video chat start wether to show avatar or live video

system settings (automatic download will go back to being off, system name will go back to a # ps3, and anything typed and saved in the predictive text dictionary will be gone.)

date and time settings (reset the date and time)

power save settings ( your times will reset to system auto off 1 hr no special conditions and the controler auto off set to off)

accessory settings such as any wireless remote or blootooth device)

printer settings ( if you have one synced up)

display settings

(this is mainly what were looking to fix but its better to do restore defaults to get the best resault)

sound settings

security settings ( any passwords you set on anything)

remote play settings ( connected to any psp or sony cell phone or computer)

network settings ( your internet connection source. wireless or wired)

internet browser settings (such as faverite pages)

and ur psn id and password

i know its a long list to write or type down but once you make sure you have anything from this list

1.) go to settings if not already there.

2.) then go to system settings

3.) then select restore default settings.

4.) press x when ready to set to default.

5.) should start up like new system but still have everything saved game/music/video wise so follow the instructions they give you to set it back up.

6.) then reinput all other information back to the way you had it.

Please let me know if this helps so i can save the response for later use.
