It sounds like the PS3 is sending a signal that the television isn't 100% compatible with. I'd start by plugging the PS3 in using standard RCA jacks, and making sure that the video and audio configuration settings are all set to automatic. Then, plug back in using the HD cords that you have, and the PS3 should reconfigure its signal output to match what the TV can handle.
Try holding your power button on your ps3 down till it blinks.(not your main power switch on back of console) I do believe if correct, this should reset your ps3 resolution to an auto set for best display on your tv. It may pop up with a message on resolution, but that should work. I had similar problems and that worked for me.
If you have a Sony PS3 that you move from place to place, you may run
into the issue where you connect it to a new TV or monitor and you
can't see anything because the video settings are different than what
your PS3 is configured for. When this happens, you can't even get to
the screen that allows you to set the video settings, so you are
basically screwed. If this happens to you, there is a fix. 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. You'll probably have to do the
same thing when you take it back to your original location. But at
least with this trick you can now move your PS3 around if you want.
I posted to your problem with a similar one. I was able to get my PS3 to work by:
1.) Powering down both the PS3 and ViewSonic LCD
2.) Unplugging the power cables to both PS3 and LCD
3.) Waiting at least 10 or more seconds
4.) Plugging in the power cables to both PS3 and LCD
5.) Turning on the ViewSonic LCD
6.) Turning on the PS3 and holding down the power button until the beep
After this sequence I heard the bootup audio and the menu appeared on the screen- which detected the HDMI connection to my LCD.
Very odd.. I've had my PS3 in the same place for months and just today this happened.
