first you have to double check if all the cables are well plugged, both to the console and the TV.are you using an hdmi cable? if so, please try to switch to the hdmi channel on your tv, using the tv remote. there's a button on it that is used to cycle the external video inputs, you just have to locate it and press few times until you'll see the PS3 image on the screen.
Ive had the same problem with mine. I have a universal remote and a blu ray player separately installed on my tv. The only way i was able to play the ps3 without calling geek squad to reconfigure my tv was to unplug the blu ray and put the ps3 in its spot and push watch bluray. It worked great.
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.
how is it connected to the tv? does your tv auto switch channels? if not try manually switching inputs with your tv remote (ext1, ext2, scart, hdmi etc etc) you say you connected to tv put in a disc right away? did you set up your console first? (of course point one about the display needs to be resolved before set-up can take place)
example if you are connected to your tv with an HDMI cable and your tv does not detect and then switch to your HDMI input.. use tv remote and repeatadly press button (maybe called source on your remote maybe something else) untill the input is switched to HDMI
ok what channel is it on if it is an old tv put it on channel 3 if not try pressing input on your remote it will say "video 1" "video 2" then "front' then normal tv it should work on one of the settings
