Re: Ps3 powers on no video.
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.
To reset video output settings:
Turn the PS3 system off by holding the Power button on the front of the console till you see the power light turn red.
Then hold the power button on the front of the console for at least five seconds until you hear a second beep to turn the system on again. The video output settings will automatically be reset to the standard resolution.
TV "Input" or "Video" channel for the HDMI port
You need to know the TV "Input" or "Video" channel for the HDMI port on your TV. For instance, if your TV has multiple "Input" or "Video" channels, (i.e., "Input 1", "Input 2", "Input 3", etc.), you will need to toggle through each "Input" channel on your TV until you find the correct channel that displays the HDMI picture. This is important to remember, especially if you do not see the HDMI picture after you connect the cable and configure the PS3 settings. Please refer to the TV instruction manual for more information.
Turn OFF the PS3TM system using the [MAIN POWER] switch (in the back)
Unplug the AC power cord from the electrical outlet

Press the [MAIN POWER] switch on the rear of the system. A red light should appear on the front of the system indicating power is available.
Turn on the PS3 by pressing the touch-sensitive [On/Off button] on the system front. The red light will turn green, indicating the PS3 is now turned on.
Note: The blue light will also appear on the front of the system if you have a disc inserted.
Plug in the TV and turn the power on. The PS3 should detect the HDMI display device automatically. When prompted, "Do you want to output video and audio using HDMI?", select YES and press the alt="X button icon">button. (You may need to press the PS button on the center of the SIXAXISTMcontroller to enable the controller first).
The next screen will ask, "Do you want to automatically switch to the optimal setting?" Select YES and press the alt="X button icon">button.
On the next screen, the PS3 will display the maximum resolution capable on the display (i.e., 1080p). The screen will display, "Do you accept the setting?"

You are going to have to do a video reset. Witch takes the video settings of the system back to default. To do this, make sure you have everything hooked up. Power, HDMI. Then, turn the system on, push and hold the power button until the system turns off, then push and hold power button until you hear 2 "beeps" then the video settings will be refreshed. ^^
Make sure the HDMI cable is connected to the HDMI OUT
port on the
back of the PLAYSTATION 3 system. Connect the
other end of the HDMI
cable into the HDMI Input port of the TV or display monitor.
While the PLAYSTATION 3 system is in standby mode (red
light on the
front of the system), hold down the
touch-sensitive power button on the front of the system until the system
goes into standby mode again . (So the light cycle would go from:
red light --> green light --> then back to red light). This
will ensure that you have held down the power button long enough to
reset the Video Output Settings.
Turn on the PLAYSTATION 3 system and once the system
up, the Video Output Settings will automatically reset to the standard
resolution (or detect the current display output settings of your

Seems that the battery is low on power, when the controller is connected to the usb port of the ps3, all leds should start flashing, this show that the battery of the controller is recharging, when done the leds go off. Note that before the leds start flashing that it can thake up an minute before it starts doing that. Keep your ps3 on to recharge the controller.
Your tv screen has problems with the video mode that has setted up on your ps3, hold the power button till hear two beeps, this will reset the video mode of the ps3, and leavse you at a screen to set up the video mode of the ps3.
Yes you can!
TRY THIS cmfin and trey!
Shut the system off in the back then un-plug and re-plug all cords.
Turn the power on in the back.
The ps3 should have a red light on in the front.
Push and HOLD the power button in front!
It will go through a red light to green beep at you then go back to red.
This should HARD reset it.
If you have ever changed tvs or played on a different tv the ps3 will sync itself to that tv.
SO a regular tv is different then my hdtv so it would need to be reset to play on a different tv!
I hope it helps!
