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
when you use the HDMI cable the system becomes automated, it detects that the HDMI cable is in use and with your help it sets up your audio and video.
RCA or Composite cables (same thing) are basic and dont communicate, so you have to go to your system settings in the XMB (cross media bar) and look for video settings, change them back to composite, and do the same for your audio. If that is too much work for ya you can do a master reset of the system. Hook the system up using your RCA cables while the system is powered off, then turn the system on wait 30 seconds and then hold your finger on the power button until it beeps twice, this will reset the system to its original settings
When you hooked up the HDMI did you go into display settings and change all the PS3 settings to HDMI instead of AVI? I thought my HDMI wasnt working, just a blank screen but I could hear the sound, then it hit me..... change the video and display settings to HDMI and poof, there was the pic. lol
