I recently bought a new PS3 and a new telly, once or twice the tv hasn't found the ps3. I put this down to a dodgy hdmi lead and ordered another one.
Tonight I fancied a go and yet again the ps3 lights up but the tv can't find it.
A-ha I think, I'll run it through the phono's till my new lead arrives, same result. Right I think I'll try it through another tv. After unplugging it mauling things around, swapping cables, still nothing. Sh#t me-thinks, it has to be the Playstation, great, I've binned the receipt, what a load of hassle!
As a thought, I googled PS3 LOSS OF VIDEO and found this is quite common and can be repaired through holding the power button down and it "re-sets itself"
Why did I not not know this if it was common, I could (and did) end up going through all sorts of broccoli!
Let this be a warning to others

Ours gives us similar headaches, we have to do a complicated series of lead jiggling and button pressing to make it work!
