    Thanks, i have tried all these options and none seem to permantly stop the problem.
    If i start the console through the scart then change to HDMI the games will play, but i shouldnt have to do this each time to run through HDMI.

It's a bit of a pain as you'll have to re-establish your initial internet setup ( this is where keeping old passwords, etc, comes in handy ! ), but the only solution that will work is by resetting your PS3 to ' first time use ' ( not back to factory condition though ).
This may be an unwanted slog but if you've accidently changed the settings and can't remember how or why at least you'll know the initial sttings should work.
If you don't want to do this, try going to the screen settings and adjust one at a time ( loading a game in between ), also if you have a scart lead fitted ( as well as the HDMI lead ) make sure it's in the audio out and not in ' video ' ( the audio out will be a circuit between an audio scart socket on your tv and the red and white leads going back to your audio output device : active subwoofer, etc , the yellow lead plugs into the scart lead from the console via a plug point adaptor which goes straight into the scart on the tv set ).
AV Multi Out should not have to be performed as the leads out devices are the only ones which should be pressed to set.
Hope this helps.
