PS3 HDMI problem; then lost audio/video settings
Quick question for anyone that can help. I was using my PS3 today, went out, and when I came back and turned it on the video wasn't showing up. I could hear the audio when scrolling, but no image. I turned it off and back on, and it started up. However, it was outputting at 480p and had lost every single one of my audio/video settings.
Why did this happen? I don't want to have to go through reapplying the settings again. Frankly I spent part of a day testing every setting with a couple different BDs and games to find what I liked best, but now I don't really remember them all, so it's sort of frustrating. Is there anything I did to trigger this?+ add-on: 35

If you hold your finger on the power button (on the console) for around 5-7 seconds it will trigger an automatic reset of your settings. This was done in case people accidently left settings on say 1080p when they only have a 720p or 480i tv. It's possible you may have done this. Some models of tv's take longer then usual to get the drm handshake an hdmi cable requires. For instance: If I turn on my 360 and Samsung tv at the same time sometimes the video signal will not sync up correctly and I'll have no video. Usually I just have to change the channel and then flip back and it'll work just fine. It's likely that this is what happened to you, and then when you restarted you accidentaly triggered te reset function on the ps3. I wouldn't be too worried, this happens on rare occasions. Next time (if there is one) that you get sound with no picture try switiching channels first, and after 5 seconds or so switch back. Should fix the problem.
