I have bad news. The only way is to go back at your dads and hook both the hdmi and composite cables (red,yellow,white ) cables. Then have the ps3 go to composite mode. also change the sound since that is also programed as hdmi but once you get a picture with composite you can do the sound with the composite connection.

Sorry but that's the only solution i can give you. My friend had a similar problem but in his case he didnt know how to use the hdmi cable since he initially programmed his ps3 with composite cables and he did what i told you and his hdmi cable worked. And come to think he was about to return his hdmi cable. So why dont you go pay a visit to your dad and get the ps3 on the video output you need.

yes that could be an option. Go to a friends house and write down what you need to do. sort of like blue-print.

All you have to do is hold the power button for 7 seconds then the ps3 will revert back to its original settings. Its in the manual you know.

Even though its an old thread atleast you searched, try making sure your TV is set to the channel of the input you are trying to use, switch to composite channel if you use composite cable etc..
