Ohhhhh u got there a problem i had months ago. PS3 only gives u one output signal at a time, that means either u use it hdmi or u use it the normal rca way.Bad thing is that the ppl at sony didnt think of this kind of situation.
What u need to do is go to ur friend's house and use his hd tv to config ur ps3 to the correct output signal(rca), both on video and audio. If u bought the ps3 from ur friend, he should know how to do it, since he had to config it to hd in the first place. Be sure to probe it with the config u are going to use at home :)
Well...I assume that you are using A/V at your house and HDMI at your friends house? The best way to fix it is to hold the power button down for 3-5 seconds and you will hear 1 beep then continue to hold until you hear 2 beeps. When you hear 2 beeps let off and this will take you to the restore menu and resets your video settings. The funny thing with a PS3 it will automatically pick up that you have an HDMI cable hooked up but not that you have an A/V cable. So when you hook up your AV cable it still boots in HDMI format and it has to be reset. Don't buy your cable yet it will do the same thing.
If you originally set up the PS3 with A,V cables it won't work on HDMI even if you set it up to and visa versa. There is a work around but you will have to call tech support. Here is a link at Sony's PS3 tech support that may help also. http://playstation.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/playstation.cfg/php/enduser/std_adp.php?p_faqid=263
go back to your friends with your ps3 and change the tv settings on the ps3 back to scart output but also take your scart lead and have it plugged in at the same time. once you have selected scart output unplug the hdmi cable to make sure the settings are right. hope this helps you.
