Its completely understandable , lot of people face the same trouble switching between the two..
The first step is to make sure that your PS3 is on standby. In a more understandable term, just make sure that your PS3 is turned off but plugged into the wall to the point that the PS3 power light is showing red and not any other color. To switch PS3 HDMI to AV you will have to hold the power button down until it beeps twice. You will have to make sure that your PS3 is off before you begin holding the button down or it may not work successfully. This will tell the PS3 to switch back to AV video. You will have to do this every time you switch to and from PS3 HDMI to AV. This also means that you will have to select the option that allows HDMI every time you try to go back to the HDMI interface. One you do it once you will problem remember by heart on how to fix the problem of not being able to switch PS3 HDMI to AV interface.
You will need to turn on the PS3 and hook it up with rca so you can access the console menus. Turn it on and get to the main dashboard.
1. Go to Settings -> Display Settings (not video)
2. Select [ Video Output Settings ]
3. Select HDMI
4. Select Resolution
5. Select Screen Size
6. Save the settings
7. Reboot the console.
This should resolve the problem. We've seen PS3 consoles that would not reset by performing a hard reset. We were able to resolve this issue through the settings menu though.
Let me know if it is still giving you issues.Hank
What you need to do is use a different tv or scart/av cable first, go to settings and reduce the resolution its because the tv cannot handle such a high res, if this dosent work, please post back,
first if you do not have one you will need an HDMI cable, depending where you get it, it can cost you anywhere from $15-$165 it doesnt matter which one you get they all work, now if you dont got one an hdtv is next with a hdmi hookup,
easy way, have your ps3 on, then plig hdmi to back of ps3, then go to the sisplay settings and change it from AV component to HDMI and there you go.
harder way, ps3 off, hdmi in, av component not plugged in, reset ps3 till you get the picture on your HDTV
Turn the power off on the switch on the back, and then back on again. Hold down the power button, keep on holding it down after the first beep, but let go once another couple of beeps sound. It should then take at max a minute but then it should show a screen set up section.
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
unless there is a switch on the ps3 itself to change to normal tv, you may have to reconnect the ps3 via HDMI and change the screen resolution back to 480p or change the settings in the setup from hdmi to av.
