PS3 not working with hdmi

5 replies 45 views Edited Sep 20, 2012

I usually play my ps3 thru hdmi but I turned it on today and it says no signal on the TV. I plugged my av cords in and it worked but when I try to set up the hdmi it just gives me a black screen. Any suggestions ???? I've tried to rest but that doesn't work

Try a different device with that HDMI cable and TV and see if that works, if it does then there is likely an issue with your PS3's HDMI port...

OK, but that doesn't really mean anything. Many things work one day and don't work the next. You have to now narrow down what the problem is. It is either the TV, the HDMI cable, or the PS3...

That is unfortunate, but until you do you won't be able to determine where the problem is.

If that is the case, I suggest you purchase a component video cable at GameStop, it plugs into your PS3's AV output and that way you can get an HD display when playing PS3 games...
