PS3 Slim HDMI previously functioning now does not work

8 replies 129 views Edited Sep 1, 2012

Before I start explaining, I want to note a few things: a) prior to today, it was working; b) I have researched this issue on various forums and sites and trying to reset the settings and everything, but it did not work.

 

I have checked to make sure the cable works and it functions with everything else.

I have done the tips suggested here and other sites of resetting everything. Did NOT work.

 

It was working fine previously with the same output device and cable and everything.

 

The output device I'm using is a Samsung HDMI monitor.

Try changing the HDMI port on the TV..... if that doesnt work, try another tv and all of its available ports..... if that doesnt work, get another HDMI cable and do it all over again on each HDMI and a different TV.

 

Logic, who would've thought eh? Oh wait.... No one thinks anymore.

I don't have an HDMI TV. I use an HDMI monitor. The exact same one I am using now worked since I got the PS3 and monitor. I have tried using another output to manually set it to HDMI. When I turn it on, it detects the HDMI output but when I try to use it, it's a blank screen that says "Check Signal Cable". The same cable works when I connect my other devices to it so it is not a cable issue.

So the screen works if you use a different device on it via HDMI?

Yes. I hooked it up to my PC via HDMI using the same cable and it works. But it won't with the PS3.

I've also done the video setting reset and even safe mode and that didn't work. I think the port is busted or something... but the weird part is when I hook it up to AV and HDMI at the same time, the AV says that it detected an available HDMI device.

Try going to safe mode after reset, then update/reupload latest update using a usb, its the last option, also first  vacumn the vents and all ports gently on the ps3 just incase there is dust clogging, it could be a fault in the latest update, something to do with the graphics card, otherwise your ports knackered m8,
