If you are getting this error it is called the no display error.
The reason that it happens is because the GPU which deals with all of your graphics has overheated. You just need to stop the heat build up in order to make it work again.
The first way you can fix the No Display Error is by sending it in but bear in mind for this problem there is a $150 charge for the repair which is pretty steep!

If you want to get the problem fixed EVEN FASTER than the option for you is a good PS3 Repair Guide.
