PS3 Slim does not output to HDMI

29 replies 3524 views Edited Sep 8, 2009
I just bought a PS3 slim since my 60gb yloded and now it won't output through HDMI on my tv. Before I updated to fw 3.00 it was fine, detected settings and everything, but as soon as I updated, the start up screen booted up, then all of a sudden the tv went blank. I tested the slim on another tv in the house and it outputs fine; I've also already tested different HDMI cables, so it's not the cables. **bleep** is going on?

It's not the port, I tested my 360 on it as well and it displays fine... I read about samsung TVs having problems handshaking with the new slims, but those problems only refer to 1080p output, and my TV is only outputting to 1080i.

thats probably the problem right there. trying to use 1080p. since, your tv only does upto 1080i. hold down the power button for a few seconds. this should fix the problem.

No offense, but you're not reading my posts. I'm not outputting to 1080p, I just said that there were problems reported by people outputting to 1080p on samsung TVs. In my first post I said that everything was working fine, output was ok, it was after I updated to fw 3.00 that the slim just started not outputting to HDMI. The reason I mentioned the 1080p was because people said that the slim wasn't handshaking correctly on samsung TVs when trying to output that resolution.

Yeah, I just tried that as well, no dice. Composite output is fine, but HDMI is messed up.
