i changed my ps3 from a 1080i tv to my regular tv and it wont work all u see is blank I also tried holding the power button but all it does is beep once and turn off it doesnt work PLEASE HELP!!!!!!!!
You hold your finger on the power button for about 5 seconds. After two beeps it resets it to the RCA cable format. When the HDMI cable is connected, the PS3 automatically adjusts it's resolution. But when you go back to regular cable it doesnt do it automatically, you have to do it manually.
Just turn the ps3 off, but don't flip the switch on the back off. The red light should be showing. Then press and hold the power button. Keep holding it after it's turned on until it has beeped again. You should have to hold it for about 4 seconds. The screen will flash a few times and then return to the non HD settings. I brought my ps3 over to a different house that didn't have an HDTV and this worked for me.
thanx alot `-` my big screen bulb and ballast busted and I dont have the money to fix right now and have been ps3 less for bout 3weeks until I stumbeled across this site.ryvm for you all help see u in ps3 home Drunkr
You would probably have to hook it back onto an hd tv... with 1080i.. then change your settings. So then when you use it on another tv... regular or whatever.... then it could possibly work. Not sure though.
