Hey everyone. I've had a 60 gig ps3 for around a year now and it's worked fine the whole time. But now there's a problem and i don't know what it is.

Earlier today I brought it to a friend's house to play on it for awhile, and we hooked it up using an HDMI input, and it was fine, it changed everything around and optomized it's settings to work well on an HDTV. But i've just brought it home and I hooked it back up to my tv using the regular component cables, and now it won't show up.

It's hooked up to my VCR and played through that to my tv(I can't hook it up to my tv since all it has is a coaxial input, which is no good) and now when i turn it on, nothing comes up. It's hooked up exactly the same way as it was before, and i'm doing all the same things, but it just won't work now.

If anyone knows anything, I'd really appreciate the help, thank you:)

Go back to your friends house, connect it through HDMI. Then change the video input to component. Bring the ps3 home and it should work when you connect through component.

Try hoding down the PS button when you do a turn it on. That should detect the settings. Not sure if its true (read it on a post) but try it.

Not the PS button, the power button on the front of the console
