Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
One day I was playing my PS3 over a friends house and he had his PS3 attached to a HDMI cord. When we decided to switch and play on my system with the HDMI cord, it worked fine, but when I got home to plug the AV cable back to my PS3 it did not work.
The Audio and Video no longer was able to work. But, when I went to the story to buy a HDMI cable it worked fine.
Since I have a TV without the HDMI capabilities in my apartment I need to use the AV cable.
I went out and bought a new av cable from game stop and it still does not work. What should I do?
When you switch from one cable connection to another (Hdmi to AV etc) you need to reset the PS3 to its default settings. Basically what is happening is, your PS3 is set to HDMI, so when you plug in AV cables it doesn't know it. So you have to reset it. Hook your PS3 up to whatever cables (make sure system is fully off) then hold the front power button down for a few seconds.
Doing this will reset the display settings. You can then go into the XMB (main menu) and choose your connection. Although the PS3 should do this during the start up on its own.
Hope this helps.
