HDMI Cable Problems With a PS3

PS3 Troubleshooting HDMI - The Playstation 3 uses a single cable called HDMI for high definition video and audio to be transferred to an HDTV. There are a lot of convenience to a single cable for all that, but there are also a number of issues that may arise from the HDMI and how its technology works. Some of the most common problems with PS3 HDMI cable and what you can do about it.

No HDMI Cable is Connected to The Living Room

The HDMI cable keeps the PS3 version because of friction, because there is a sort of locking device. Since the HDMI cables are heavy, it is easy to bend for them and the severity of the traction of the PS3. Ensure that there may be stress on the HDMI cable to avoid this.

The HDMI Cable is Bent

The HDMI cable is bent as is often between the output of PS3 and the arrival of HDTV, with which it is used, to rotate. This can lead to disorders of the video signal, as well as physical damage. The solution is a right angle HDMI adapter that will go into the PS3 and then attached to a vertical grip for the HDMI cable to get. This eliminates any burden, and also uses gravity to help the HDMI cable instead of the PS3.
