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.

You're a savior
thanks sooooooooooooo much man!!!
the lady put the wiimote thru the flat screen...had to go back to regular TV, and wouldnt work. Thank you!!!!hadnt played in a week
WHOOOO! Thank you so much!!!
Thank you
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.
Thank you

thank you so much I was getting fusteraded with my husband cause he wanted me to hook it up and he has been bugging me for the pass two days so finally you saved my life, your the best
Thank you
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.
Thank you

Thank you
it's because you neeed a hd telly to use hd
Thank you
