Hello

Thanks for using JustAnswer.

The PS is currently set to display video from the HDMI port. It needs to be reset.

1. Power off PS. Not from back but from front. The red light should be on.

2. Hold the power button down for 10 secs. The PS should restarts.

OR, read this tip here. Either should work fine.

Thats it.

Regards,
iMayne
