Same problem just happened to me. Playing a game and the game froze. Sat there in shock for about 10 to 15 seconds and the screen went black. Shut it off. Now every time I go to turn it back on again it starts up, I get the PS3 logo and then the blue wave starts. About 5 seconds after that the wave starts to lag and then nothing.... Stays on the lagging blue wave screen... THIS BLOWS!!!!!!!!!!!
This problem happens with some of the PS3's and it is a motherboard issue. The PS3 motherboard needs to be reflowed using a reflow station. I have one of these stations on it's way to be able to fix this issue if you still have this problem. You can contact me at email@example.com for more details.
Just a gander, but your PS3 may be set for HD output thus not displaying on your non HD television, your best bet in this case is to find an HD television, friend, coworker, etc, connect to it and switch the settings back to regular. Also if I understand correctly leaving the ps3 completely unplugged for 72 hours may also reset all settings. Good luck!
Yeah, sony is going to tell you to send it in. Little bit of advice though, I was reading somewhere to NEVER turn the machine off while a game is running in it from the back. I always go to the game menu and go to "quit game" and then from the XMB menu go to "quit game", then go to "turn off system", then turn the switch off in the back. After reading some of the "horror" stories I don't want to have to pay $$$ to get a new ps3 because of some glitch in the system. But I would if I had too because microsoft sux. I am installing linux on my ps3 right now to see how that pans out, but I think you fried it buddy
Try connecting the ps3 using the analogue cable ( ones it came with red&white) & change the audio settings in system settings, if its connected to an amp try updating its firmware .Or try to update ps3 firmware (maybe audio bug)
Have both the AV cables and hdmi cables hooked up from the tv to the
ps3. On the TV Menu goto the av station which is different from the
HDMi station...From the ps3 menu screen gotot settings then to video
and audio and select hdmi then back to the tv menu and select the hdmi
station and the ps3 main menu should be seen and you are all set
