HDMI problem

#1Trailblazer34Posted 6/23/2013 8:17:44 PM
My PS3 wont display a picture when i hook it up to a HDMI cable, and i am worried that the only solutions (holding down the power buttons, doing restore default settings) will corrupt my data. Help???

There's virtually no worry of corrupting your data by resetting the display options...
The above is not in all caps.

How about restore default settings???

Are you upgrading from non-hdmi to hdmi? Just set it up through the sd tv and when it displays for 20 seconds replace the two cables.

If not, probably a faulty hdmi cable.

Your not hooking it up right it should auto detect the cord.

^Not if you went from SD to HD. Other than that it could be connection issue.

If you can't understand that with a bit of imagination to make it clear then you should stick to your linear, hand-holding games.

Sometimes if you were using component output before, it won't recognize it correctly. When turning it on, turn it on AT the console, holding the power button down for awhile. It will recognize the HDMI and output correctly.

I love it when someone has something explained to them step by step in exact detail and they still don't get it
