Solved!

PS3 suddenly not working with HDMI - HP Pavilion 22bw

HP Recommended

I have recently purchased a HP Pavilion 22bw 21.5 inch monitor so that I may hook my PS3 and PC up to it at the same time,(HDMI and DVI respectfully). Things have been working great so far until today.

 

 I was installing a game onto my PS3 hard-drive and switched back over to my PC. After about 20 minutes, I switched back and the screen was blank. I restarted my PS3 and notcied that while the HDMI output was being detected(no out of signal range messages or any of that), the screen remained black and the monitor's native control screens were blinking. Switching back to my PC, and all was fine.

 

I have tried everything I could on the PS3 end( reset it to factory defaults and everything) and still no dice. I hooked it up to our flat screen in the livinging room and it works like a charm. Plugging it back into my monitor after that showed no improvmenet.

 

So, the PS3 seems fine, the HDMI cable itself seems fine as well. So that just leaves Mr. Monitor. I haven't had any trouble with it prior to this point and I am infact using my PC and monitor right now to type this post. Any and all help would be great appreciated. Thank you!

Cadamer,

 

When the PS3 is in standby mode (red light) push and hold the power button until it beeps twice (5 seconds). This will bring you back to the standard HDMI audio/video output. 

 

Best of luck,

Kyle

Have you tried a different HDMI cable? It might sound strange, but I've had a similar issue in the past with my TiVo. I had an HDMI cable plugged into it to my TV and one day the video just quit working. The HDMI cabled worked with other devices and the TiVo worked with another TV. I ended up getting another HDMI cable and it fixed everything.

 

Here is a document I found on Playstation's website:

 

PS3 HDMI Picture Problems

 

 

Even though I assume you have tried most of those. I would also recommend posting this on a PS3 forum, as you are likely to run across more people that have had this issue there, than you will find here.

I've switched the cable with no success. =/

 

Thanks for the PS3 document though. No luck there either unfortunatley. The only reason I think that it COULD be the monitor is because it works fine on our TV. I mean, it was installing a game to the hard-drive when I switched it over to my PC's DVI connection. I switch it back to the PS3's HDMI connection and now it just won't work? I don't understand it.

 

I'll go ahead and post on their forums as well though. Thanks for that. 😃

That is very strange...have you tried unplugging the monitor and letting it sit for a while and then plugging it back in?

Not a problem Cadamer, I was trying to think of a way to "hard reset" the monitor, glad it worked! If you could mark my post as accepted solution, it would be greatly appreciated!
