Re: PS3 no picture on screen. Borrowed Unit from a...
If the TV was originally set up on an HDTV via HDMI cables you'll have to reset the video/audio outputs on the PS3. When you turn the PS3 on hold your finger down on the button until it beeps a second time, then remove your finger and let the console restart. That should reset the PS3's video output.

What is probably happening, is your PS3 is set for the wrong type of output. If you are using an HDMI cord, try switching to the AV cables that came with your PS3, and set your TV at the appropriate input to correspond with the AV hookups, and see if the picture works then.
If you are using the AV cables, it may have been set to HDMI accidentally. You need to use an HDMI cord, and hook the PS3 up to an HDMI compatible TV or monitor, and select the HDMI input. Once you get the picture working, go to Settings>Display Settings and set the display you wish to use.
Step 1. Turn the PS3 into standby mode (red light on)
Step 2. Press and hold the power button. It will beep once when you press it then beep again 5 seconds later. Let go of the power button when you hear this second beep.
Step 3. Wait for your PS3 to start up
This resets the video back to standard definition and from here you should be able to set your video up properly.
I had this exact same problem, or rather my friend did after I borrowed his PS3. You see when I borrowed it, the console configured the HD output to work with my TV, If this happened to
you, there is a fix, With the HD cable connected, turn off the power to your PS3 and then turn it
back on again. But when you turn it on, hold down the power button until
you see something on the screen. When you hold down the power button of
the PS3 when you are turning it on, it completely resets the video
settings to the most basic settings (480p I think) so that it'll work on
any TV or monitor. Once you can then get something on the screen, you
can configure the video settings to match the TV you are hooking up to.
My HT-S6100 had a similar problem with my DVD player and some times with my Cable/DVR box. The signal wasn't getting received at the TV. So, first I changed the input jacks my DVD and Cable box are plugged into on the receiver (e.g. from HDMI 1 & HDMI 3 to HDMI 2 & HDMI 4). Second, I reprogrammed the Input Assignments to match (e.g. HDMI in 2&4). Third, I deleted any Input Assignments that weren't applicable. For instance, I'm only using HDMI connections, but there were Digital and Component Input Assignments programmed in. When I say I deleted them, I actually set them to "----" (just scroll through the options and you'll find this.) Finally, I turn on my video/audio sources (PS3 in your case) and let them load/warm up before I turn on my Onkyo receiver. It seems to be working. Good luck.
1. Connect PS3 to your TV
2. Select the Correct HDMI input on your TV
3. Press and hold the [power] button on the PS3
4. perform setup.
These are the steps to setup the video output for the PS3, It is possible that it is set to a resolution that your TV does not support.
If this doesn't work, you may want to contact Sanyo to ask if they have some protection circuit for the HDMI input. Some manufactures TV's will deactivate(turn OFF) the HDMI input under certain conditions. Unplugging the TV or some other procedure usually turns it back ON.
the best configuration is using component AudioVideo cable.component video out from ps3 use 3 wires going to component video input to your tv (Y-Pb-Pr) and two wires for audio left.right. use av1 input on your tv to hook the audio and video. let me know if you still have issue.
