Help switching ps3 to HDMI Problem solved!

DouglasDangerDouglasDanger PennsylvaniaRegistered User regular
Every once in a while, something happens to my ps3 and it resets back to composite (red yellow white) output. I don't understand what causes it to do this. It has happened in quite a while, so I sort of foggy on setting it to output via HDMI.

I tried going to display settings and setting it to HDMI, but nothing happened. I think I am doing something wrong, or forgetting to do something.

I tried doing the hold the button down until it beeps twice thing, and couldn't get that to work either.

Can someone help me out? I would really appreciate it.

I looked at this:

and Iam not sure what I am doing wrong. I unplug the composite cable, plug in the hdmi cable, and hold the power button down until I hear two beeps, and I still get nothing.

    I've tried two different hdmi cables and every port of my TV. It seems stuck with composite for some reason.

    It was working fine forever. My nephew played New Vegas, we turned it off, he went home. I did some stuff, went to play Saints Row 2, and it was switched back to composite for some reason. It took me a while to realize that, and I little more time to remember where in the hell my composite cable was...

    Do I need to engage in e-fellatio or something to get a response? There are more than 20 views and no one has even said "Huh, that's weird. Sucks to be you."
