Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
.senerio: My son hook it up using HDMI Cable to my bedroom sony flat screen tv to watch a blue ray movie and play some games. which worked fine. We then move the consol back to the living room TV using the regular cable so that everyone could watch the Movie. playstation did not display. We tried to to perform the video by holding down for 5 sec. to no avail. We did however get display to respond a couple of times. " with plug in you controler using the USB cable. We did that and it gave us a list of choices we selected option one and nothing happened. same situtation no display again. tried to reset the consol several times and then after playing with the on/off it the message apeared again. we then selected from the list "reset to factory settings"Nothing again and will not work on either HDMI or standard video cables.Please help.Thanks
This happened to me a few years back so I apologize if it's not 100% accurate. If you can get it to work on another TV, go ahead and connect it to that, and go in to the settings to select the video input. If it's connected through an HDMI cable, then it will probably be set to HDMI. Change the input here to whatever cable you used in the living room. You will have to power it off at this stage, but when you connect to the other TV it should work.

I posted to your problem with a similar one. I was able to get my PS3 to work by:
1.) Powering down both the PS3 and ViewSonic LCD
2.) Unplugging the power cables to both PS3 and LCD
3.) Waiting at least 10 or more seconds
4.) Plugging in the power cables to both PS3 and LCD
5.) Turning on the ViewSonic LCD
6.) Turning on the PS3 and holding down the power button until the beep
After this sequence I heard the bootup audio and the menu appeared on the screen- which detected the HDMI connection to my LCD.
Very odd.. I've had my PS3 in the same place for months and just today this happened.
I wanted to post my success. Best of luck!
