I was watching a movie on my PS3 (has HDMI setting) and I accidentally fell asleep and the system was not turned off. This Morning I saw it was still on, I turned the tv on and it was in the XMB menu as someone had taken out the disk, I put it back in and when the movie started there was a purplish shade instead of how it was supposed to look. The Image is still there but now there it a purplish shade. Also there is no sound( I tried audio from the audio cables and HD cable for HDMI and there was still no sound). I tried both video and audio on A/V and it worked perfectly. Is it the system that doesn't work or is it the HDMI cable or the TV(Is a Westinghouse HDTV, everything worked perfectly before: the cable, system, and TV).

Please try this procedure to connect the PS3 to TV..
The PS3 has a Blu-ray drive that can be
used not only for playing games but also for watching high-definition
movies. The best way to connect a PS3 to a high-definition viewing
device such as a video projector is through the PS3's high-definition
multimedia interface (HDMI) output. The HDMI connection can transmit up
to 1080p high-definition from the PS3 to the video projector using a
single cable. Attaching and setting up the HDMI cable will only take a
few minutes and will let you watch high-definition video from the PS3 on
the video projector.
Attach one end of the HDMI cable
to the HDMI output connector of the PS3. Turn the HDMI cable around if
it does not slip right into the HDMI output, because the HDMI cable can
only fit into an HDMI connector one way.
Attach the other end of the HDMI cable to the HDMI input connector
that is on the video projector. Make sure both sides of the HDMI cable
is securely pushed into the connectors of the PS3 and of the video
projector. Turn on the video projector. Press the "Menu" button on the
video projector's remote. Navigate to the "Sources" setting on the video
projector's Menu. Select "HDMI" from the "Sources" setting. Press the
"Menu" button on the remote control again to exit the Menu.
Adjusting the PS3
Turn on the PS3. Wait for the
"Home" menu to appear on the video projector, although the quality of
the video seen from the video projector will be muddied and dark.
Navigate from the "Home" menu to the "Systems" icon using the game
controller and select the "Display Settings" tab. Choose "Video Output
Settings" from the list presented in the screen that appears. Press the
right side of the directional pad on the game controller to move to the
Choose "HDMI" from the list presented in the screen that appears.
Press the right side of the directional pad on the game controller to
move to the next screen. Choose "Automatic" from the list presented in
the screen that appears. Press the right side of the directional pad on
the game controller to move to the "Confirmation" screen. Press the "X"
button on the game controller to make the settings active. Return to the
PS3's "Home" menu.
Watching the PS3
Insert a Blu-ray disc into the
slot at the front of the PS3. Wait as the Blu-ray disc begins to play
the video content on the video projector from the PS3 through the HDMI

What is probably happening, is your PS3 is set for the wrong type of output. If you are using an HDMI cord, try switching to the AV cables that came with your PS3, and set your TV at the appropriate input to correspond with the AV hookups, and see if the picture works then.
If you are using the AV cables, it may have been set to HDMI accidentally. You need to use an HDMI cord, and hook the PS3 up to an HDMI compatible TV or monitor, and select the HDMI input. Once you get the picture working, go to Settings>Display Settings and set the display you wish to use.
If you are using HDMI sometimes an improper shutdown will cause the HDMI "Handshake" to get confused.Try going to the Crossbar (Menu) on the PS3 2nd coluom from the left and down to Display Settings.
Choose the appropiate output settings and use AUTOMATIC whenever possible.
After that Set your Audio again use AUTO.
Never plug in HDMI cables when Power is on it can and will short out that Input!!
Have both the AV cables and hdmi cables hooked up from the tv to the
ps3. On the TV Menu goto the av station which is different from the
HDMi station...From the ps3 menu screen gotot settings then to video
and audio and select hdmi then back to the tv menu and select the hdmi
station and the ps3 main menu should be seen and you are all set
Green bar or border is due to wrong AV Setting. To resolve this just insert the Blue-Ray DVD and begin to play. Press the Triangle button and select "AV Setting", in AV Setting change Video Output to RGB.
