Question about Video Game Consoles & Games
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.

turn off ps3 till the red light is on the machine then you need to hold down power button to turn on until you hear a beep.
make sure a hdmi cable is not connected at back of ps3.
