Have you tried the following? :

Step 1. Turn the PS3 off into standby (red light on)

Step 2. Press and hold the power button. It will beep as soon as you press it, then beep again 5 seconds later. Let go of the power button when you hear the second beep.

Step 3. Wait for the PS3 to restart.

This basically resets the video resolution back to standard definition from where you should be able to set it up properly.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa

After i used a hdmi cable on my ps3 my playstation won't work on a normal box shaped tele. i've tried to hold the power button for 5 secs but this does not work. do you know why?

Did you try it exactly like this:

While the PS3 is off (solid red led) Hold down the power button until you hear the SECOND BEEP, quickly release.

The power button on the FRONT of the PS3.

I cannot connect my ps3 slim 250g to my Loewe tv, I have connected the cables from the ps3 to the tele but it still doesn't show up on the screen, I have looked through all the channels but I still can't...

This is simply a software issue. Your software is not compatible with their software, in other words, If after switching from TV to Aux 1, Aux2, Aux3, Etc. it still doesn't work, it never will.

  • Have your ps3 in standby mode (red light).
  • Now, press and hold the power button in the front down. Your ps3 will beep twice. Let it go almost exactly after you heard the second beep.
  • Wait 10-15 seconds. A display will show up, and just answer yes to all!
