This might happen if you've switched cables (i.e. from the supplied cable to an HDMI cable). If you did this follow the advice above from laph9979 and you should get a screen asking if you want to restart the system (or restore it to factory defaults).

i had the same problem, i reset the PlayStation 3 video mode (when playstation is off hold the start button till you hear the second beep) and had to hook it up with the A/C cables and it got it working for me
PS3 is one of the most amazing gaming device but like other competitor gaming
devices (Xbox and Wii) It also has some problems like No Display Problme. You
may check out the informative blog post at PS3
Whilst the machine is turned on, plug in the usb to the wireless controller and the PS3 should detect it and ask you to press the ps button (center of controller). Do this and you should get a menu, select RESTORE FACTORY SETTINGS, and you will have to input time, date etc but it does get machine working again - previous data is lost and you may need to keep trying as machine took several attempts to detect wireless controller - just persevere!!! I tried pressing buttons etc, switching off but nothing else worked for me ... Hope this helps
Hey guys, same thing happened to me. In case you're looking at this site like I recently had been, I just wanted to post a little update. I bought my PS3 on the Christmas of 2007, and it stopped working after I played an online round of Tekken: Dark Resurrection on July 5. It froze on the wavy part of the introduction of the PS3 system. So what you do is:
1. Press the PS3 "touch" power button and hold it until you hear two buttons "beep" 2. Connect your USB cord to your ps3 controller and press the center button when instructed on the screen. 3. Choose the third choice on the screen which says something about restoring the data (sorry i cant remember i know its the third choice though) 4. When it asks you its question say "Yes." and it will begin the restoring process with the download bar. 5. When its complete it may make you do step 4 once more, so just do it again, or any more times it asks, until it finally restarts properly. ( I had to do it two times)
I hope this helps you guys, it helped me the first day it stopped working!
