Playstation 3 Slim - gets "no signal" with HDMI connected to my Samsung LE40B535

14 Replies 12,458 Views Created 16-12-2009

I have searched the web back and forth after a solution to this problem. Hope someone can help me with this one.

 

Bought my PS3 Slim (250GB) on the Duty Free in Doha (Qatar, Asia).

Also bought a HDMI cable to go with in some electronics store down there.

 

Tested it on an LG TV in Doha and everything worked just fine.

 

After I got back to Norway i plugged everything up to my Samsung LE40B535 and I just get the message "no signal" on my TV.

 

I have tried the following (without getting it to work):

- To test the HDMI cable I plugged it into my laptop and on my TV, and it works just fine.

- I have tried to hold down the powerbutton and wait for two beeps to reset the display-settings.

- I have tried to change the display settings in the PS3 menu to use HDMI output.

- I have tested every HDMI input on my TV.

- I have tried resetting my PS3 deleting everything.

 

I found a review on a norwegian site of my Samsung TV where they even try it with the PS3 and it works so I know that my TV is compatible to run PS3.

 

My guess is that the error is in one of the following:

- The firmware of my TV?

- NTSC vs. PAL thingy?

 

I can't think of anything else... please help!

Probably the FW of your TV, can you update it? You can also try the 'handshake' by turning off/on the TV while the PS3 is on. Also, as dumb as it sounds, how many HDMI ports does the TV have? Have you selected the right one?

your not alone avonhalo, i get kinda the same issue with my slim and my LE40M86 but i get a signal for around a few minutes then it switches my tv off then back on again and keeps doing that. i thought that waiting for the ps3 firmware updates may fix the issue but i still get it now. the only way i get around it is by setting my tv to 1080i and set the blu ray setting so that i get blu ray in 1080p 24hz but games in 1080i. its the only way i can get it to work, i've also looked online for a solution but the only piece of information i found was the slim has stricter handshaking as it has a different hdmi board to the phat ps3's and its up to sony to reduce the restrictions as and when they want to basically

I got the same hdtv. I have yet to try the slim on it but have no problems with the original PS3. As you said that the slim PS3 has a different HDMI board causing the problem, it should not be the case. Sony should have enable the slim to work on all hdtv like the original ps3.

I had that problem with our Samsung TV, I read up about it on the AV forums and it apparently cause by a HANDSHAKE issue, But If you turn the TV&PS3  off at the mains for several minutes im confident  it will rectify itself.

Thanks for all yout responses guys...

I tried upgrading my TV's firmware to the newest but no luck with that.

 

 XxCREESHxX - What do you mean "turn off the mains for several minutes" ? Like switch off the ps3 and tv for a while and then turning them back on?

 

I still get no signal whatsoever. Not even a second of screen time.

Seems like there is no solution to this...so basically this means that I have to either get a new TV or sell my *****ing slim ps3?? Ahhh...this sucks.

 

Anyone got any more suggestions please share... :xLol:

Hmm thats the tv I use for my PS3 (old 40gb) and I have no problems at all..  It concerns me that these issues exist with the slim cuz i was thinking of treating myself to a 250gb ps3 slim....    Funny I had the le40M86 someone else mentioned before this and had no issues..

 

I guess I could switch my ps3 to my panasonic plasma... but would rather not..

 

Maybe a firmware update...

 

One thing to test is an old game, the ps3 is HDMI 1.3 capable and these samsung tvs are 1.2 i believe..   But the same is true for my 40gb ps3 that I have no issues with so no idea... what do sony say ??

 

I can imagine this will become quite a big issue as Samsung are the top tv manfr in UK.. (more people own samsung tvs than any other brand)   Needs fixing..

basically sony said to try another slim, so i took mine back and got an exchange and the problem was still there. then i phoned samsung and they said my tv was out of warranty and i'd need to pay to have it fixed. even though my laptop works fine on the same hdmi lead over 1080p but the slim does not. i've tried alsorts of different leads but still get the same issue. i do get picture though unlike avondale who doesn't get anything so not sure whats wrong there. anyone else out there using a le40m86 with a slim on 1080p with no issues? i've yet to find someone

Hallelujah!

Today without very high expectation of success I went and bought a new HDMI cable in a norwegian electronics store and to my big surprise the PS3 Slim turned right on. Been playing Modern Warfare 2 now for about half an hour and its awesome.

 

So what can we learn from this?

The HDMI that I bought in Qatar (Asia) worked on the TV in Qatar and strange enough on my laptop here in Norway but not on the PS3. The "Norwegian" HDMI cable worked here on the "Norwegian" TV.

I thought and have read that there is only one type of (type A - type A) HDMI cable but this can't be so since both of the cables worked, but on different TV's.

 

Anyways....I am super happy that all is working now and hopefully I wont have any more problems with my slim PS3. Thank you guys for all your inputs.

Cool. It's just the HDMI cable, not the tv itself. I currently using the official PS3 HDMI cable, as it was part of the PS3 package deal at the time.

The Samsung 40M86 has 3 HDMI 1.3 ports. Not sure what the problems are, but it seems stupid that Sony made the Slim not to work with the tv properly as the original works perfect.
