hi all,

my bro is having some trouble getting his ps3 to work on his hdtv through hdmi. has had the ps3 repalced, and a technician over to look at the tv, but the tv is fine, as he tried a hd dvd player through hdmi which worked.

the tv model is a samsung LE37M87BD. anyone here got any ideas?

thanks

hes tried changing hdmi cable, not sure about the power down button thing. as for chaging ps3 settings to hdmi i think he has. cant check at the moment as he has gone off to get another 1 i think. maybe a firmware update will fix things?

I had a similar problem because the previous owner had his set on component out and i was using hdmi, so nothing was displayed on screen. Thought the PS3 was broken until i read the manual.:D You just need to hold the power button down for 2 secs as mentioned, then it will reset the video settings and output on all. You can then select HDMI in the PS3s settings. :)

You could also connect the bog standard composite and HDMI lead and then go to the display options and choose HDMI. To be honest the PS3 should auto-switch according to the lead you plug in like the 360 does.
