PS3 display issue

So I've used my PS3 with standard cable it comes with and probs.


I'm putting it back on a TV without HDMI now with the standard cable and no picture is coming up on the screen? I know for sure its not the TV cos I've tested it with a dvd player in the same scart. So it's either the ps3 cable (which has worked fine since the last time I unplugged it), the ps3 itself, or am I doing something wrong?

Power on PS3 via power button and HOLD IT for 5 seconds (release after the second beep). It should automatically configure your PS3 to the TV's native resolution for all settings.

This is also shown in the FAQs on the SONY website for PS3, along with other useful "tips" - I knew about this even before I got my PS3 and had to tell my bro how to do it recently too.

If anyone needs it or just wants to have a look :)
