PS3 WAS ON HMDI CABLES AT HOME, BUT ON HOLIDAYS ONLY HAVE MULTI AV CABLES TO USE. CAN'T GET IT TO CONNECT. Tried every combination possible. High def digital box is woorking, but when I swap those multi av cables with the ps3 ones, not picture.
Is not possible to swap between hdmi and multi av connections?
Yes it is the ps3 is not reading the change tho so its an easy fix you just need to reset the connections i have done this alot on the front of your ps3 the power button press and hold it for 20 to 30 sec. it will beep a bunch then the connection is reset then try your new connections , the ps is suapose to read that but sometimes it don't it happens.

However. I´m inclined to think that you did change the input on your TV. So your problem is another, this is what you have to to to reset:
1. Unplug the HDMI cable from both the TV and PS3. 2. Plug in the AV MULTI OUT cable (the red, white, yellow one provided along with the system) to both your PS3 and TV. 3. Set the TV input to the correct one and turn it on. 4. turn on the PS3 with the front button but DON´T release it, keep your finger on it, until you hear a second beep, thats when you release the button, the PS3 will start to identify what it´s connected to and will display it on your TV.
When you power up the machine, continue to hold down the power button past the initial beeps and wait for a beep after about 3 seconds. This will flip it from HDMI to default video output. It makes no other changes to the PS3 except default video output. You might have to cycle the power on the TV as my Samsung kills the AV input from the PS3 when it is not sending AV.
what you can do is use the av cables plug in the white and red into the back of your surround sound system remember you have to adjust your settings on your ps3 so it uses the av cables for sound ps u don't have to disconnect your hdmi
I can't be exactly sure without more information, but it sounds like you ps3 is outputting from another port. My ps3 originally was outputting from the component/composite cable port so in order to use the hdmi output I had to do a soft reset. That makes the ps3 sense what cable is plugged into it and automatically output through that port instead of using whatever is the saved setting.
With your ps3 turned on hold down the power button for a few second until it beeps and flashes 3 times (should be about 5 seconds). You might have to try it a few times to get it to work, but you should get picture and be able to adjust the settings on the ps3.
