PS3 not connecting to Sanyo TV through HDMI

7 Replies 6,052 Views Created 04-01-2013

So Im not sure if this is the right spot to post and yes I have done lots of looking around on the net on forums to resolve this. Yet ive ihad no luck. So I tried hooking my ps3 up to my sanyo tv via hdmi no luck but i tried it on another tv i got signal. Same cable and everything. So I tried my dvd player with the same cable on my tv with same hdmi port and it worked. Only the ps3 wont work. Ive tried the resetting video by holding down the power button, im boggled by this any help would be awsome.

It may sound obvious, however have you tried a different HDMI cable?

lol I have but was same brand, the only thing that made me not think it was the cable was that the dvd player works with the same cable, this problem also occured when trying to hook a pc up to the same tv.

It may be an old HDMI cable. The PS3 ideally works with a HDMI 1.4 cable, though a HDMI 1.3 will work too.

 

When you do a display reset, does the HDMI ever show anything? Or is it always blank?

Try and get a new HDMI cable and see if that works. Also, try a different HDMI port on the TV if that's possible.

Worth giving it a try. If it's an old TV, that may help.
