It's probably a problem with the connection of the PS to your tv. If the connection setup is right, and you still get no sound or colour, connect the PS3 to the TV using the standard-def A/V cable provided in the packaging and press and hold on the power button for about 3 seconds when you start up the console. After that, you can change the display settings to an HD connection and connect the PS3 to the tv using an HD cable. (That is if you want it in HD)

Did you recently change televisions? If so with the PS3 off hold down the power button and keep it hold down until you hear some beeps and the console eventually powers back off. This will reset the video output settings. If you have not changed anything television wise, ensure all cables are connected correctly, if you have another video cable HDMI? you could try I would advise that as well.

Ok, you are actually holding the power button down for too long. Please do the following to sort out the display on your PS3.

Turn the PS3 off into standby (red light on)

Press and hold the power button. It will beep once when you first press it, then beep again about 5 seconds later. Release the power button when you hear the second beep. The display will now reset and it should detect your HDMI display with no problem.

Hope this helps

Try a video reset:

While the PS3 is off (solid red led) hold down the power button until you hear the SECOND beep, quickly release.

Let me know if that solved your problem.
