PLEASE HELP!!! - Connector broke, need opinion on component

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
My HDMI came unplugged. I went to plug it in and somehow it got caught on the gold connectors and bent 3 of them to the point I can't unbend them and plug in the HDMI. I don't want to get a new console yet if the new ones are coming out in a year or so. Any rate, I was thinking of just switching to component connector (going and buying a component connector with the PS3 end). My PS3 is an original 20 GIG model, bought it about half a year after they launched.

If I go with the component, will I be loosing anything in quality/capabilities from the HDMI? The site says the component will still do 1080P. Trying to determine if I should just get the cable or pay to have it fixed so I can use HDMI again? I have a pretty good top of the line Plasma TV and don't want to loose any features/picture quality because we watch a LOT of Blu-ray movies on it.

I read that newer models will not display Blu-ray at 1080p through component but mine is pretty old so I assume I am safe?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated!!

Not really. You should do fine. As for getting it fixed, check with Sony and see what they say in replacing that part, or find a place that does the work, and can replace the female end on the circuit board.

I would stick to component, cheaper for a cable. Who knows how much that fix would cost you.

I found the monoprice component cables to be kinda stiff. Check partsexpress for belkin a/v cables at buyout pricing. Only limitation is the 6ft length.
