it sounds like you haven't set the display settings correctly. turn off your ps3 and try using the red,white,yellow cables (make sure everything is plugged in correctly). if you get a signal, then change the display settings to whatever connection you will use.
hope that helps

I believe you have the PS3's version of the RRoD, it's extremely rare (0.03%), but statistics mean nothing to the individual.
Either call Sony's support helpline (the number should be on their site somewhere) and ask them what to do/to fix it or take it back to the retailer you bought it from with the receipt and ask if they can replace it.

It's a GPU problem. Are you comfortable opening up your PS3 or would you rather pay $150 through Sony?
Let me know.
In the meantime you can check out my PS3 blog for some tips, warnings, etc.

There is a major problem occuring right across the board at this very moment with the PSN Network. Some consoles are not synching properly and causing problems like you describe.
For a full breakdown please see this FixYa Tip.
