this happened to me (pulled hdmi when tv on) it broke the port or surged/fused it... now it only works with component... tried diff tele and cables... the hdmi is just not being detected... if you find a working fix please post what you did.

Maybe It depends on the brand of the tv. I have an LG TV & I just usually switch the HDMI cable between my PS3 & DVD player without any problems, so far. But now that I've read about this, I'm surely not going to do it anymore. Just to be on the safe side. In a way, thanks for bringing this up to our attention. i'll be a lot more careful w/ the HDMI connections from now on.
I have the exact same problem tried everything but the ps3 doesn't recognize my hdmi connection to the TV anymore. I replaced the hdmi cable, tried 2 TV's (one sony one LG) did the restore and full format. nothing helps T_T. been playing with DVI for 2 weeks now. I will soon take the ps3 to repair if there is no solution, hadn't had the time.
A question: I get an error when trying to repair the hdd through the service mode (two beeps) the error continue appearing when trying to repair every time, can it be the problem with my hdd and not my hdmi slot? or I may a problem with both?
