In order to switch back from hd to sd you have to hook up the ps3 after you do that press the power button on the console and hold it down you will hear the first beep followed by another about 3-5 secs later this will reset the system back to sd

I have a HDMI problem with my PS3. I have it


Try entering Recovery Mode and choose "Restore Default Settings".


If that doesn't help, you may have an HDMI port failure - which will require returning the unit to Sony or sending it to a third-party PS3 repair shop.

My LCD HDTV screen keeps going black.


There are two places to look for the problems, the backlight inverter board and the power supply. Look at the power supply first since it is easier to get to, look for burnt parts, bad capacitors, etc.

PS3 Power Surge Help!


hi there try using the ps3 as audio-cd play(blind, without screen)
with any other tv to make sure soun still is coming...
if there was a flash or circuit destroyíng the yellow(video)plug,
either the cable has been destroyed or the short backfired even into the video module of the psx3.
try exchanging the cable, if that doesn't do any good, the video module got smoked...

let a technician repair/replace it or you think about becoming the happy owner of another brand new psx3


good luck!

Xbox wont show on screen


Check the little switch on the av cord at the end where it goes into the xbox. If your using component most likely it needs to set to HDTV. If your using the yellow, red, and white cables then set it to TV. My tv will go all black if mine is set to HDTV when I'm using the yellow, white and red ends. I hope this helps.

Hold the power button (5-10 SECS) when turning it on and your PS3 will automatically set the correct video output.

Smoking


Gee I would think that it is kind of obvious; your amp is blown. Just because it doesn't blow fuses doesn't mean much. If you hook the power up to the ground input and the ground to the power and then turn it on you pretty much toasted the amplifier. If you don't know why the amp is smoking, but you're trying to fix it yourself, you are basically telling me that you have no business doing so. I have been an installer for 15 years and even I am not dumb enough to try to fix a bad amplifier. Do everyone a REALLY big favor; stop messing around with something that you don't understand of have knowledge about before you hurt yourself.
