Dead HDMI on my PS3
Hey I am having problem with my HDMI connection. The display setting was right I did reset the display (hold power) no signal still, also tried restore ps3 system no luck. The hdmi cable are good, have tried with composite cable it does work. I probably having problem with my Mobo but no sure where exactly, Please give me some suggestion. Thank you
Have you tried, using both cables, the composite and hdmi, and then boot-up the ps3 with your tv set to composite, and then go to display outputs, under system on the xmb, and force it to switch to hdmi, and then change the input source on your tv using the remote?
If that fails, try another tv and/or hdmi cable, or another known fully working ps3 or 360 with hdmi on your tv using the same cable.
If still no luck, then you are "up the river without a paddle", unless you are good at doing very fine board-level repair.
I have see alot of ps3's where either the hdmi, or composite, or component ports are burned inside, like a small fire hit it.
It seems alot of the PS3's have a fault with some tv's and grounding different between the ps3's shield and the tv shield, one or the other is going to suddenly catch on fire around the port. -- a number of small inductors and resistors burn off, along with sometimes the small copper traces on the pcboard.
Yours may be one of the not-so-bad versions, if you are willing to strip down your ps3, you can strip it down to the bare motherboard, and look right behind the hdmi port, you will see a series of little resistors, those are most likely burned on your unit, if my above steps don't fix the problem for you.
I have tried 2 tv set using 1 composite and 2 hdmi, the composite does work but when using hdmi just got black screen or no signal. did force to switch to hdmi, gave me the same result. Both hdmi work fine with another console.

gonna check with the resistor and see how it goes, this is my hardest part :cry:
is it most likely fault with the resistor on the back of the port?
Thank you gary
Most likely, I see if I can dig up a picture of a PS3 hdmi port that is burned inside behind the motherboard, and also a list of the values of any replacement resistors if that is the case. -- From my memory, some are just 0ohm and others are 50 to 75ohm.

I'm not getting a PS3 now, that's crazy...
I like gaming, but not going to risk my house for a console being faulty...
It is combination of ac power wiring, type of hdmi cable, and part user fault.

If you follow the above, you should never have this problem, but most people are in rush or are switching machines, due to not enough inputs on their tv.
At at some point, depending on their ac wiring at home, and type of hdmi shielding, you will have this problem.
I see this happen mainly on ones with counterfeit hdmi cables, that have bad ground shielding on them.
So there are some component at the back of hdmi port burned, thank gary. I am still working on it, pretty hard to replace all the component damn small :mad: .
The problem with HDMI is solved, defective part was the Silicon Image burned but somehow other problem occurred after i got the hdmi working. Something wrong with the temp sensor the fan go very loud after a few mins. Can this somehow relate to the hdmi?
Most likely the cell processorís heat sink is not seated correctly, you have to open it up and redo the thermal paste.

Hold power until it beeps twice, resets video.
