Mine Did something like that too and I was ready to panic thought I would have to buy a new HDMI cord or my Ps3 slim failed me >:( But it was an easy fix for me and hopefully for you too. I just unplugged the tv itself for like 10 seconds plugged it back in and tried again everything worked fine. I hope your just as lucky but you might have to do do strange things Like have the red yellow and white cords in and hold on the power button until it starts beeping at you to restart the display settings. I dunno good luck.

I tried all that stuff with the power button before I wrote the news post...

Also, what you did is called resetting the "handshake", a "handshake" is a process between media components when they recognize each other. I've tried multiple other ways of resetting the "handshake" but it still didn't work...

have u tried holding the power button til it "blips"?

Yeah, thats auto-setup, and still, nothing. If I do that for HDMI, it loses the signal on AV(obviously), and then neither work, so I have to reset it for AV then to see anything at all...

Technology can be such a bitch at times. Then again it often makes everyone its bitches.

So yeah, bend over baby!

But seriously, good luck with that.


The problem is in the connection of the HDMI cable. You'll have to get it replaced, that's what happened to me.

so it sounds crazy but my ps3 is a little retarded too... its happened to me several times after i bought it and i thought it was the same problem you did. i would switch it to hdmi and saw a no signal screen, pop in the same cable on the xbox and it works fine, i was going nuts. THEN...by chance, when i had switched the setting to hdmi etc and it went to the no signal screen i turned my TV off and on again, boom worked perfectly and i was enjoying hdmi goodness. why it does this? i havent the slightest clue, is it the ps3 or the tv? honestly couldnt tell you but it worked for me so :/ hopefully itll work for others :D

When I quickly glanced at your Post on the front page I could've swore it said

"I horny."

I am one perverted bastard....

Nice to see a dual system owner thats not biased. Thank you sir for supporting both platforms :)

No prob. I also have a Wii, but that was a gift and Nintendo does in fact suck imo...
