Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
I turned the ps3 on. all lights are on the playstion..everything is working but nothing will come up on the tv..(just an all black screen) i pushed the eject button it (beeped) showing that it is indeed on..i wiggled the video output on the back of the ps3 still nothing..i swithed the input (red, white, yellow) to another input on the tv..still nothing...so i unpluged it for 5 min or soo.. pluged it back in still nothing (black)..i pulled the hard-drive out for a few minutes put it back in still nothing (black)? the only thing to show me that it is on are the lights and the beep nothing else? not exactly sure what it may be? any ideas!?
Ok a long shot but i did read somewere that if u hold down the power button for 10 seconds it detects or calibrates to the current TV that is connected its worth a try if nothing else, if this didnt help sorry but if it did enjoy :)
P.S. i dont know if the console needs to already be running to do this.

Remove your hdd and put into another ps3.The screen will say format...you say yes.Then you put the hdd back into your ps3 and it will format again.hopefully that works for you.I have the same problem and am about to attempt this now.
