You'll need to change the video output setting in the XMB

"Turn off the power to your PS3 and then turn it back on again. But when you turn it on, hold down the power button until you see something on the screen."

This is how i solved it:

 

Plug the Tv back into HDTV

Go to the video settings and for output device select RGB or whatver the one is you normally connect through.

The screen should go blank, turn the ps3 off and then plug it back the normal way in your other tv.

 

hope this helps
