Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
Just started last nite that PS3 was on but nothing was coming up on screen, tried unplugging HDMI cord and putting that three colored jack back in and still nothing...turned system on side to see if that would help and nothing...have downloaded a lot of songs from playstation network for rockband and downloaded some games that I don't want to lose. I have a warranty on system but more afraid of losing all downloaded stuff if taken in. Could this be salvaged if motherboard is gone? I know nothing about this technical kind of stuff.

Note: How to reset video output settings
If you are attempting to change to an HDMI cable from a different video cable or if the video output settings do not match those required for the display in use, the screen may stay black. If the screen stays black for more than 30 seconds, you may need to reset the video output settings of the PS3.
