SOURCE: ps3- hdmi to av
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.

The settings on your PS3 may be to high for your TV. try turning off your PS3 and turning it back on, when you turn it on hold the power button untill it beeps aprox 10 sec. this will reset the your PS3 back to original (minimum settings)

Well you can just use the hdmi cable if you're going both audio and video in to your tv. With your hdmi cable you get the best quality for both.
But in anycase, it seems that your PS3 is set up to output video via HDMI cable. To reset our video output settings, simply power down your PS3 (turned off) and hold down the power button until you hear the second beep. (around 5-10 secs) Power back up and hopefully you'll have video via your av cable. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: My PS3 hdmi cable does not work
First off, if you want to use the hdmi remove the supplied composite cable from the back of the ps3.
You don't need both plugged in at the same time, and I'm not sure with the ps3 but some video devices will not enable both at once.
Have your tv selected for whatever hdmi input you have it plugged into. They should be labeled where you plug them in.
With the unit in standby, switch off and red light in front, hold the power button by the disc tray for 3-5 second. You will hear it beep, after the initial turn on beep, then you should see a display set up screen.
If you switch back to the composite, you will have to do this over again.
