Samsung TV Is Not Picking Up A Playstation 3 HDMI Signal

When i switch on the Playstation 3 the HDMI connection area of the TV where it is connected to activates.When i press the HDMI button on my remote control it takes me to the HDMI connection area where the PS3 is coming through but im getting a blank no signal screen.I have an XBOX 360 that is connected as well via HDMI and that works fine.All HDMI ports on the TV and all HDMI cables work with everything except the Playstation 3.Now the HDMI port on my playstation 3 could also be broken.The TV was recently taken in for repair and im wondering was it given a settings update that is causing it to block the signal from the PS3?It's like its' trying to pick up a signal from the PS3 but something seems to be blocking that signal.I tried the hold in the PS3 power button solution until i hear a second beep but that didn't work unfortunately.The television is a Samsung and it is the 46 inch UED46D5000 model.

If you are able to connect your PS3 to another TV using the same HDMI cable that would rule out your PS3, if it works.....or
does the PS3 itself have any settings that perhaps need to be set to an HDMI output as opposed to Composite or SCART etc?
Also have a look at the HDMI settings in theh TV menu too.

    Would purchasing a HDMI switch box solve this problem?

For some reason we cannot connect our playstation 3 to this television using the hdmi cable.


Connect the HDMI cable to the playstation 3 and LG TV.
Press the input button on your LG remote until you see the new HDMI connection.
If there is no picture, Hold the power button on your PS3 until you see lights flahing on the console, this will reset the playstation to default., as it may be set for a RCA signal, thus no pictue through HDMI.

The PS3 switches on, lights up, drive and disc drive working but No Signal on TV. Saw HDMI cable solution previously posted. Does that work for SCART also?


yes just change hdmi for the word scart
  1. Make sure the HDMI cable is connected to the HDMI OUT port on the back of the PLAYSTATION 3 system. Connect the other end of the HDMI cable into the HDMI Input port of the TV or display monitor.
  2. While the PLAYSTATION 3 system is in standby mode (red light on the front of the system), hold down the touch-sensitive power button on the front of the system until the system goes into standby mode again . (So the light cycle would go from: red light --> green light --> then back to red light). This will ensure that you have held down the power button long enough to reset the Video Output Settings.
  3. Turn on the PLAYSTATION 3 system and once the system finishes powering up, the Video Output Settings will automatically reset to the standard resolution (or detect the current display output settings of your TV/monitor).

I have a Playstation 3/blu ray player and I don't know how to get hi def video on a samsung hln467w


Your TV only has a DVI input, not an HDMI which PS3 has as an output. You can buy a HDMI to DVI adapter and connect the HDMI out of the PS3 to the DVI input of the TV. To get the true HighDef video you need a HDMI input on the TV to enjoy the full capacity of the Blu ray capabilities of the PS3. DVI came out before the HDMI standard and your picture will look good but not like HDMI. I have the same problem with my samsung 65 inch. I Bought the wrong technology. I hope this helps and good luck!

Can't watch dvds on playstation 3


No, but you do have to select HDMI output in the settings in the PS3 menu and make sure the TV is switched to the correct HDMI input ( Whatever one you plugged your PS3 into)

PS3 won't connect to TV with component video.


You need to connect the PS3 to the television with both connectors (HDMI and Component). Then in the display settings change it from HDMI to component and during the 30 seconds that the screen goes black you need to disconnect your HDMI cable from your playstation. Then switch to the input that the component cable is connected to on your television (ie. AV1, AV2, etc). From here you will see the countdown for the test and you can continue with these settings.
