Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
What I did was initally hook up both the composite (R/W/Y) cables and the HDMI and switched between TV inputs until I found the display. Once I had the display (mine was on composite) I went to the settings, then display, and switched it to HDMI input. The screen went blank and I switched to my HDMI TV input and saw the display. I unplugged the composite and it was good to go. I also had to hold my finger over the power button for a few seconds when turning it on - I believe it resets the display to default, but it worked. Good luck!
In the event that it gives you a hard drive error shortly after, it's nothing to worry about. You won't lose anything and it will take a few minutes to run its course. Just make sure you never turn it off from the back of the system first, always shut it off via menu options.
