TCP60ST60 issue with PS3

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
First off, sorry if I posted this in the wrong place ...

I recently purchased a TCP60ST60 and hooked it up with an Onkyo TX-NR717 along with my PS3 slim and DirecTV HD DVR. For the past few weeks, everything has worked flawlessly. Today, my PS3 would not display on the screen. First thing I did was to try to reset the PS3 to Safe Mode with no success. The, I hooked up the PS3 directly to the ST60 (bypassing the Onkyo receiver) with no luck. I even swapped out the Hard Drive in the PS3 - still no display. Next thing I did was to hook up the PS3 to a different TV and everything worked great. So, I narrowed my problem down to the TV and the receiver. Not wanting to believe that the problem was with the TV, I updated the firmware on the Onkyo receiver - still no display. I have directly connected the PS3 to all three HDMI inputs on the TV with no luck. So, now what? Any suggestions ... ?

Thanks in advance,
drew

UPDATE

I left my PS3 unplugged all night. This morning, I plugged it in and turned everything on and it worked fine. Some observations that may be relevant:

1. Yesterday, when I turned the TV and receiver on with the PS3 OFF, the TV displayed a black screen with the "no input detected" screen intermittently displayed
2. Yesterday, when I turned the PS3 ON, the screen would flash blue then go back to black. The display on the Onkyo receiver would indicate that a signal was present, but there was never any sound or picture.
3. Today, after plugging the PS3 in, but with it still in OFF, the TV displayed a blue screen
4. Today, after turning on the PS3, it worked like normal.

Hopefully, this is only a glitch and won't happen again.

Glad you got it working again, it is odd that it did that, hopefully never happens again.wink.gif

My onkyo is sometimes wonky switching sources, my HT 360 blew 3 HDMI boards, after the second replacement board they sent me a 460 that has held up, but once every few months it will just put a blue screen....unplug everything for a bit and all is good for awhile till the next time.

I loved my old onkyo that was pre HDMI....I used it for sound and thats it....now running all my video sources through it, I doubt I will go onkyo again.
