Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
You will need to change the display settings back to normal for a standard TV. Obviously a little tricky if it's already hooked up to the TV that won't display a picture! If you do a manual (or is it called total reset?) this should revert it back to standard TV settings. To perform the reset hold the power button down for 10 seconds (I think it's 10 anyway) or until you here a couple of beeps and it should reset the display settings to it's default.
Hope that helps? Sorry I cant be more exact on the reset details.

Here is a link to reset your video settings to regular tv cables http://playstation.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/playstation.cfg/php/enduser/std_adp.php?p_faqid=1039&p_created=1210101461&p_sid=TgDtz9uj&p_accessibility=0&p_redirect=&p_lva=&p_sp=cF9zcmNoPTEmcF9zb3J0X2J5PSZwX2dyaWRzb3J0PSZwX3Jvd19jbnQ9MzEsMzEmcF9wcm9kcz00JnBfY2F0cz0mcF9wdj0xLjQmcF9jdj0mcF9zZWFyY2hfdHlwZT1hbnN3ZXJzLnNlYXJjaF9ubCZwX3BhZ2U9MSZwX3NlYXJjaF90ZXh0PW5vIHBpY3R1cmU*&p_li=&p_topview=1

There are a few ways to remedy this situation.
1) If you have access to that HDMI port on the TV, plug it back in and switch the settings back to composite. Your screen will go black which means you did it right.
2) I've only done this once and it was a trial-by-error step. Plug it into the tv, turn it on, hold your finger over the power button to turn it off. Hold your finger over the power button when turning it on. After a few cycles it worked for me. Key thing is to keep reseting it.
The safest thing to do is get the HDMI tv to switch your settings back

sounds like you have the ps3 set up in HD video display settings?
If this is the case hook it up to the regular tv and when you turn the power on continue to hold down the power button til it beeps this restores the video to default settings sometimes it takes a 2nd power down and power up holding it down to work.
If this doesnt solve please give more details
