PS3 won't work on normal TV after using on HD TV with HDMI cable

4 replies 7877 views Edited Oct 22, 2012

Hey all.  I hooked up my console to my new HDTV that I got and I hooked up the HDMI cable to it and all was working well.  Afterward, I took the console back to my bedroom to hook up to my older, non-HD TV.  Now the hook-up to the older TV is very simple; just plug in the power cord to the wall, and plug in the red, yellow and white plugs into the TV.  I did that, which has always worked before, but now there is nothing showing up on the screen when I turn the console on.  I tried it on both alternate TV Settings of  'Video1' and 'Video2'.  'Video2' is what I always use on it, but, like I said, nothing shows up.

 

Any ideas?

Pretty sure you just need to hold down the power button, when turning it on, until it beeps to reset the video settings.

If you switch cables you have to hold the power button on front down for a few seconds until it beeps a couple times, then let go, the PS3 will check for a new connection when you do this, and it should work fine if you have the cables plugged in.

Awesome, thanks guys.  And I'll hold the power button down while turning the console on, correct?

Yes, that is correct.
