Try this. Shut your PS3 off to stand by mode (when the red light is just on). Hold the power button down for a few seconds (the button on the front, not the back). This will reset the PS3 display settings back to default (480i in North America or 480p in Europe). Then go to the menu (XMB) to "Display Settings" and select your HDMI settings from there. This should do it.

Unfortunately it does not automatically switch. Turn off the power to your PS3 and then turn it back on again. But when you turn it on, hold down the power button until you see something on the screen. When you hold down the power button of the PS3 when you are turning it on, it completely resets the video settings to the most basic settings (480p I think) so that it'll work on any TV or monitor. You can then configure the video settings to match the TV you are hooking up to. You'll have to do the same thing when you take it back to your original location.

I have a HDMI problem with my PS3. I have it


You will need to turn on the PS3 and hook it up with rca so you can access the console menus. Turn it on and get to the main dashboard. 1. Go to Settings -> Display Settings (not video) 2. Select [ Video Output Settings ] 3. Select HDMI 4. Select Resolution 5. Select Screen Size 6. Save the settings 7. Reboot the console. This should resolve the problem. We've seen PS3 consoles that would not reset by performing a hard reset. We were able to resolve this issue through the settings menu though. Let me know if it is still giving you issues.Hank GATpro Repairs

Try entering Recovery Mode and choose "Restore Default Settings".


If that doesn't help, you may have an HDMI port failure - which will require returning the unit to Sony or sending it to a third-party PS3 repair shop.

You must go back to the origional place you used the HDMI last, and do all the setting up & hook up again, to get a picture, THEN set it to component, or AV, and THEN turn off shut down, Now it will work at the other place OK.

Powers on but nothing happens


It happened to me too. When you plug in your av cables and are ready to play, follow these steps. With your PS3 off (Red light on), Press and hold the power button on your console. (Do not use the controller to turn it on.) Keep holding the button until you hear a second beep. (it takes about 2 to 3 seconds.) You will notice your screen flickers, then your PS3 will show up on the tv. All you did was reset the PS3 display settings. You can always go back to HDMI or AV cables. Have Fun.
