    PS3 help

    hi can anyone help me. my nephew has a slim ps3 i think its 80gb, its only about 16months old and its not working, we have tried a new component cable and new hdmi cables but when connected to the tv nothing happens, the green light stil comes on on the ps3, does anyone know what this could be and how much it could cost to fix, thanks.

    I assume other devices work through hdmi slot

    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.

    If it's a slim, it will probably be a 120GB(not that it makes any difference).

    Has the PS3 been moved from one TV to another?
    DO you have the composite cable that the PS3 came with?

    he has moved the ps3 when he stays at my house he brings it with him, is the composite cable the one with the coloured ends on? if so he broke that so was using a HDMI then after a week or so couldnt get a picture with that so i bought him a new cable off ebay the one with the coloured ends and tried it yesterday with no joy.

    In that case, resetting it like csiman said should sort it.

    thanks hope it works, when you press the button and hold it in is that all you have to do or is there certain settings you have to change once its done that.

    happened to me, had to reset the ps3 and everything worked,

    i know it's obvious, but make sure u are not using the coloured cables and the HDMI cables at the same time.

    ^ that shouldn't make a difference, I've had both plugged into mine with no problems
