Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
My ps3 will boot up and the green light is on but i cannot see what is being displayed. i once changed the settings from the three prong to HDMI cable and since then i have not been able to view anything (hear aswell). My tv isn't HD so i don't know whats happening please help... i have had my friends try and guide me through the process of changing to the three prong from the HDMI but so far it hasn't worked (via the phone)
This works where the others didn't. turn OFF your ps3. then hold down power button about 5 seconds until the ps3 beeps. then follow your onscreen prompts.

It does NOT lose the memory by holding the on/off button down for a few seconds. It works to get the display back after running on HDMI.

I've this before. I connected my PS3 to HDTV via HDMI cable and for sound I've AVR connected via opitcal cable. The sound are playing well, but I got no luck on display. I checked HDMI, Component, AV cables, but still I got nothing even with resting PS3 setting (holding power button 5 seconds in the start-up). Then I turned of my TV for couple minutes then I turn it on, with my previous cables setup, and resting PS3 setting again, I turned on the PS3 and I got the display.
It appears that's the TV was stuck or something.

Use original cable for video and audio
change channell to video in, no HD
Keep pushed green button.
Now works but only in low definition

The system does not load discs. At the start up screen there is a little green dot in the upper right hand corner saying that the system wants to load disc, however for some odd reason it does not load.

All you do is turn the ps3 on.. and then after the green lights on hold the button again for like 10 seconds and it resets the video settings..
