Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
Had PS3 connected via HDMI and it worked fine. Moved PS3 to another shelf (so unplugged and plugged back in) and got weird cascading white/pink visual static or blank and no sound.
Tried a second HDMI cable, no joy.
Tried the AV cable but no joy. Didn't realize I have to reset the PS3 to use the AV out so will try that next.
If your ps3 is working with the HDMI cable and not with the AV output cable and you want to use your old tv that only has av you must first turn the ps3 on using a tv with hdmi input and go into settings and restore the system to default settings and it should automatically restart. (when i did this, i quickly turned the ps3 off after the restard and plugged in the av cable so it would first start the system with av cables, not sure what will happen if you leave the hdmi cable in, i assume will leave you in the same problem as in the beginning) hope this helps.

Did you move the ps3 while it was on. If you did the reset for AV should repair both the AV problem and your HDMI as well. Shoot me a message back if it works or doesn't.
