Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
THIS PS3 DID NOT SHOW ANY VIDEO ON THE SCREEN.. THE PS3 DOES POWER UP AND THE LEDs LIGHT UP. THE SYSTEM ITSELF HAS NEVER BEEN OPENED OR TAMPERED WITH FOR REPAIR
Hey jlbrown55 , have you tried resetting the default settings? If not you just have the PS3 in standby (with red light on) and hold power till the systems turns on then 10 sec after and it will beep. Let it go right then and it should reset the defaults in about anouther 10 seconds. If that doesn't work, call Sony. It seems to be a growing problem. Good luck.

Note: How to reset video output settings
If you are attempting to change to an HDMI cable from a different video cable or if the video output settings do not match those required for the display in use, the screen may stay black. If the screen stays black for more than 30 seconds, you may need to reset the video output settings of the PS3.
