I am using an Ilo HDTV and it doesn't pick up my PS3. I know my PS3's HDMI works and so does the cord. Any ideas on how ot fix it?

There's probably better places to ask about a problem like this than the ACL forum, ya know. And we'd need a lot more information to figure out what might be the problem.

Well, here is a link to a picture of it.

I did push in the HDMI all the way and yet still didn't pick it up. I think there might be something inside that's disconnected. And Tech Talk is made for threads like this one.

The issue is that we would need to know exactly what happened before and after it stopped working. Pictures don't really help?

Lots of different things could be wrong with it. It might even just be dirty or scratched on one end. If something inside is disconnected, then there's even less we can do to help, as you'd need someone who could go in there with tools and physically repair it.

And you're confusing the intent of tech talk. Talking about tech-related things is just a bit different from asking for help figuring out what's wrong with your tech.

okay, first off. The TV is a handymedown. My cousin gave it to my folks and I'm just using it. Before he gave it to us, it worked just fine. After I connected my PS3 to it, it didn't pick it up. I think something may have damaged it while in transit. And second, Tech Talk doesn't neccessarilly have to be to talk about just tech. Look at some other posts by other people. They have tech questions and no one is bitching about it. Sorry for my language. Tech Talk is also for those haveing problems with there tech.

Except that this is a very common problem which you could probably solve without posting about. There's people out there who's expertise is in fixing or finding out what's wrong with common electronics. You'd be much better off and would get your problem solved much faster through anyone like that.

And, does the TV pick up things besides the PS3? Because if not, then something's wrong with either the TV or the cable. If it does, then there's probably something that needs to be configured on the PS3 instead. You have to test everything so that you can isolate the problem.

You can use whatever kind of language you want around me, I don't care. As a side note, though, most of the topics in tech talk are started by you.

when wired electronics stop working, the first thing you check is the cabling. Similarly, when a cable stops working, the first thing you check are the plugs. The connection in the plugs is the first thing to go in any wiring. Try it with a different HDMI cable first. If it still doesn't work, you might be hooking it up wrong, or the input on your TV/output on your ps3 might be broken. If this is the case, the only thing you can do is buy/find new hardware. You could also try mending the connection to the plug in the HDMI cable itself on your own, but this can destroy the cable if you don't know what you're doing. Hope this helps.

Avalon, I tried multiple cables. all the same. the HDMI output on the system does work because it worked on other TVs. Also, the cable is undamaged. I used it when testing the PS3 on other TVs I had laying around. I did plug it in correctly. Something tells me it might be the input on the TV. And you know what? I think I might just go ahead and try to fix it myself. My guess is there is probably something wrong inside the TV itself. I was just asking if anyone had any solutions but I guess not.

I have some files on my 8mb PS2 memory card and I can't seem to delete them. How do I delete them? Do I have to connect it to a computer through a memory card reader in order to delete it?

Well, that depends on what kind of files they are, and how they were put there. If you just connect them to a PC, then there's no reason why you shouldn't be able to delete them though. If you want to delete everything from the memory card, then finding a way to reformat it should also work.

I was thinking using a memory card reader for PS3 by connecting it to my PC. I know most PS3 equipment is compatible with PC. Would a memory card reader work?

I have a memory card reader, but I never had a reason to use it. You can test it and find out?

Are you saying you will mail it to me to borrow just to test it out? Or do I have to get my own? I'm confused.

Unlikely, but there's no harm in trying.

What I think? mismatched resolutions. Try searching how to reset the PS3's graphics options using the power button, I think it's turning it on and leaving the button pressed, not sure.

More than likely the TV can't display whatever the PS3 set itself to last, like 1080p. Some TVs can only do 1080i or 720p.

Now that I think about it, that last time I fiddled with the video settings I set it to everything including 1080p. I always thought it was the same as 1080i. I'm gonna have to ask my dad if I can borrow his TV to reset it because that was the last TV it was hooked up to. That and the TV I'm having problems with is an older style HDTV. I'll let everybody know maybe tomorrow.

Edit: Fixed it. Thanks Ruuku.

I know a few people that are running windows 8 on their computers and I was wondering as to what your opinion is on Windows 8. Mine is I don't like it. It isn't very good for gaming and it looks too tablety.
