    PS3 wont reset output mode even with the reset mode.

    Been using my PS3 for ages on SD tv as a media player but want to put it back on my plasma.

    But it wont reset picture, it does the beeps as it should but nothing happens.

    Tried plugging it back into sd tv(which I stopped using as I broke the scart cable) and as my cable is faulty I cant do much, my cable works but I have to wiggle it to stay in place and as soon as I let go I lose pic.

    So I cant rely on that method to change picture to HDMI manually.

    Is there a step by step guide that I can use(only a few steps needed really) so I know to say press left 5 times to get to settings, then down 10 times, then X etc.

    So anyone with a PS3 can tell me.

    switch off ps3 via power at back. switch on then press and hold power button.

    Hold down the on/off switch when in standby until the display comes on usally around 20seconds

    How to enter in Recovery Mode
    Code:

    1. Turn off Playstation®3.
    2. Hold The power button down; The system will turn on and turn off once again.
    3. Once the System has been shutdown, re-press you finger until you hear 2 consecutive beeps
    4. When you hear the 2 beeps take finger off power button.
    5. You will be promted to plug in your controller via usb and then hit the PS button
    6. The Recovery menu will pop up.

    That's not the recovery menu, it's simply the menu to switch to HDMI.

    Ah sorry.

    I see now.
    You don't need to bring up the recovery menu to change to HDMI.

    All you need to do is press and hold the power button when switching on. It will beep once intially, then again about 5 seconds later.
    After the 2nd beep, it will say "An HDMI lead was detected..."

    There's no need to go into the recovery menu to switch from an SD TV to HD.
