Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
HDMI is a digital signal, so your TV and your PS3 are basically talking to each other over the connection at all times. That's why when you plug an HDMI connection into your PS3, it can detect the connection and try to switch right to it. Component cables don't work the same way, they only output information, so it's a one way street. Your PS3 is still outputting information, but it still thinks it needs to output to the HDMI port. The fix is pretty simple, and there are two options.
The Long Way
The Short Way
The Short Way is a simple reset of your video card, it causes the PS3 to revert to outputting to it's out-of-box settings. If neither of these ways worked, check here at the Sony website, and one of those solutions may better fit you, but it sounds like one of the two solutions above should solve it.
Please leave a comment or rating letting me know if this solved your problem, constructive feedback is always welcome. Good luck with your console and good luck with your games.
