connection for PS3
The Sony PS3 has the capability to connect to a High Definition TV
using a HDMI cable hookup or a component video cable hookup. HDMI is
the prefered connection but the component video (green, blue, red) can
also get you HD video for your games. The PS3 has a dedicated output
port for the HDMI cable connection.
The PS3 can be connected directly to your HDTV using a HDMI cable or
you can connect the PS3 to a Audio Video Receiver (AVR)
which has HDMI
capabilities and 5.1 surround sound.

Problem: Sony PS3
black screen on TV using HDMI cable connection.
You connect your Sony PS3 up to your HDTV over HDMI, and you get a
Try unplugging all components and waiting about 10 mins before plugging
them back in.
Help with PS3 HDMI setup: Try the following solution.
1. Hook up the PS3 using the composite video cables that came in the
PS3 box, yellow video cable plus white and red audio cables, in
addition to the HDMI connection between the PS3 and the HDTV (ie.
connect both outputs).
2. Turn on the PS3, and let it boot up.
3. OPTIONAL: If you have no video, hold your finger on the Power button
for 10 seconds, you should hear two beeps. A normal power-off is only 2
seconds or so, but if you hold your finger there for 10 secs it causes
a hardware reset which should reset your video output to the default
composite video cable. After the second beep, let go.
4. OPTIONAL: With newer firmware updates, the PS3 auto-detects the HDMI
connection and will ask you if you want to switch to it, you can say
“Yes” and skip down to Step #7.
5. Go to the PS3 System Settings > Display Settings, and change
the display to HDMI.
6. Switch your HDTV to the HDMI input using the TV remote, accept the
7. Disconnect the composite video (yellow) cable connection.
Did the steps above fix the problem? If not continue below.
Possible Solution: cheap HDMI cables not allowing the television and
PS3 to negotiate a secure HDMI connection. Buy Amazon.com or
Monoprice.com good quality HDMI Cable for about $10.
1. Make sure your PS3 firmware is fully updated. Past PS3 firmware
updates have affected how the PS3 negotiates a secure HDMI connection.
2. Make sure your HDTV’s firmware is updated. You can check
your TV manufacturer’s website, they typically offer firmware
updates that you can download to a USB drive and plug into the HDTV.
3. If that doesn’t work, the problem might be your PS3 and TV
not being able to establish a secure HDMI handshake which is required
for an HD signal. You can try working around this by purchasing what is
called an “HDMI switch”, it’s basically a
hub, but for HDMI connections (as opposed to USB or network
connections). You can get a $10 manual switch, or a remote-controlled
HDMI switch for $25.

Possible other causes of black screen:
1. Corrupted Hard drive
2. Broken Hard Drive (requires service from Sony)
Problem: I get
video out from the composite cable that came bundled with the PS3, but
not from HDMI.
Could be something wrong with your PS3 HDMI port and it needs to be
repaired, but, another option is to buy the PS3 Component AV Cable
($16), check to make sure your TV accepts HD (720p, 1080i) over the
component connection and hook your
PS3 up this way instead of HDMI.
I’ve tried everything and cannot get video output.
Could be your PS3 video card is broken and your PS3 needs service from
