I have the original ps3 the big one with the switch on the back. I was trying to rehook it up so i could play Kingdom Hearts 1.5 tonight... However i was having issues with it my tv screen was black no sound ps3 was on with green light. So i did the trick where you hold the button down and you hear the beeps. Now i wasn't exactly sure how to do this so i tried both ways. I pressed the button beep when it turned on beep again.... and nothing happened. Tried it waiting for the third beep and after it beeped the system just shut down. I tried switching hdmi cords (all i have are hdmi cords) and none of them work with the ps3 (i know the actual cords work because they hooked up my tv and work just fine... i don't know what to do anymore!! please help me!

Yeah i think thats what it might be... i went out this morning and bought composite cables and they work fine. Thank you for your help!
now keep your hdmi cable plugged in with your composite cables, go to ps3 settings change display to hdmi and then change channel to hdmi
you messed up your step earlier when you tell ps3 to auto detect hdmi settings because I've seen it before with others and was fixed, but try this anyway.
