Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
PS3 consoles turns on, however, the PS3 menu screen does not appear on the tv screen and the game will not play.
Try geting a new hdmi cable or a new av cable and plug it in turn on the ps3 let it sit turned on for a while and a message should pop up saying it has found a hdmi or av output witch ever you are using and it will ask you if you want to use it as the ouput to the tv and then you will select yes. if that dident work your gpu (graphics processing unit) has over heated and you will have to send it to sony or take it apart and reflow the prosesers and gpu

when you switch the ps3 on if you hold down the power button for more than 4 seconds it runs the display setup. and sets the ps3 to run in the best possible option. hope this helps

I turn on the console: the disc spins, the led is on, the boot sound is played, but the screen remains blank. No further sounds are played as well (e.g. the Browser sound or the game's sound). The cable appears fine (since it plays the console boot sound).

This is blue ray lens failure. this optical Assembly has two separate reading lenses. there is one designated for Cd audio and CD_ROM reading and, the other is blue ray compatible. the blue ray lens in inoperable at this point. you will need to replace this lens assembly.

Is could be your TV and not the PS3. When the resolution of the screen changes, you TV will flicker to adjust to the new resolution. My TV flickers in a similar way when playing games of lower resolution than my HDTV.
