How do you change the video output on a ps3 from HD to SD?


Ok so this is the story, I was playing on an HD tv now I need it on an SD tv but the ps3 still thinks the settings are with the HD tv, so now i cant play at all. The HD tv is unavailable at the moment, So how would i revert the settings to SD? (or at least tell me the button sequence from far top left? i.e. right 1, down 4, press X, go down)

  1. Turn off the PS3. To turn it on and reset the video settings, press and hold the power button on the front of the system until you can hear a second beep (first beep when it turns on, keep holding until a second beep is heard). This resets the video settings.

    If you hear 3 short beeps on the second beep, it is because you let you go off of the power button, just turn it off and do it again.

  2. You need to do a Video Reset.

    How to do a Video Reset: With the PS3 in stand by mode (red light on front of the PS3), hold the power button down until you hear two beeps (about 5 seconds). The PS3 will turn on and automatically reset giving you the best settings for the type of TV and cable being used.

    Always do a Video Reset when you change TVs and/or cables to get the best settings for the PS3.
