In the "System Settings" you are able to alter the Video Output setting from Analog to HDMI etc
This is important when running the output through to a HDMI TV.
Check that you have the correct setting for Video output for the relevant TV you are using.
How are you trying to turn it on? It wont work with the PS button on your controller first time because to controller wont be connected via Bluetooth. There's a button (pressure sensitive not a push switch) on the front of the console by the BR disk slot. Its also possible it is switching on, does the green light come on at the front of the console come on? If so then you’ve probably not got it set to the right output channel. So it'll be outputting to your analog instead of your HDMI or vice versa. I think the Analog is standard so plug in a scart cable and see if you get something then change to HDMI in your settings.
Otherwise either your cable/tv or ps3 is broke :S
in the system settings check to make sure you are "set-up" to use the correct output, Composite, HDMI, also, try using the analog, output that normally comes with PS3 (analog adapter for PS2 will work also), but you have to change the output to analog to try, and you will have to change the settings back to composite or HDMI for 1080i while still using the analog, if you try it, then restart the PS3 and seee if there are any changes, try with as many different outputs, as possible to eliminate that before sending back to SONY for repair or replacement.
Thanks for the nice rating if this helps or solves your issue, or points you in the right direction, Fixya is appreciated. Thanks for the question
you have to manually change the output in the settings menu back to ANALOG Using an HDMI TV or monitor 1st, when you select RCA, or AV output and restart, it will work, but when you switch back, you have to change it (back to HDMI output) on the analog monitor, or use analog TV inputs, then reboot PS3 and connect HDMI.
I do not know why Sony did not make this switch automatic and self scanning on boot, but alas I have had the same issue, so I know this is your problem, not the AV cables.
Please give a fixya rating if you find this solves your problem, Thanks for the question
Step 5 - Change from the current video cables to HDMI. (Your tv has different inputs. When you switch to HDMI in the PS3, you will have to switch your TV to the HDMI input that it is connected to, to get a picture)
Step 6 - Be quick, the PS3 will display a "test" for 30 seconds. You need to switch your tv to the correct HDMI input and press "X" on your controller to accept the change.
If I remember correctly the Playstation 3 is set to display through the analog output as default. Plug in your HDMI cable, and plug in the analog SCART cable that came with the box, put your TV on the analog channel that matches the SCART input and start the Playstation. Once you complete the initial Playstation setup you can go to system settings and change the video output from analog SCART to digital HDMI.
go back to your friends with your ps3 and change the tv settings on the ps3 back to scart output but also take your scart lead and have it plugged in at the same time. once you have selected scart output unplug the hdmi cable to make sure the settings are right. hope this helps you.
Hey i just posted i have the same problem as you do but then I checked the SONY PS3 website and it solved my problem. Try resetting your video output. I'll paste what it says on the PS3 website but if that doesn't solve your problem go to the website. They have a bunch of troubleshooting solutions for this problem...
If while manually changing the Video Output Settings, the screen
remains blank for more than 30 seconds, you may need to perform the
following steps to reset the Video Output Settings.
Make sure the Component AV Cable is connected to the [AV MULTI-OUT] port on the back of the PLAYSTATION 3 system.
Connect the other end of the Component AV Cable into the video and audio RCA jacks 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 On/Off button on
the front of the system until the system goes into standby mode again .
(So the light cycle would go from: red light to --> green light
--> then back to red light) This will ensure that you have held
down the On/Off button long enough to reset the Video Output Settings.
Turn ON the PLAYSTATION 3 and once the system finishes powering up,
the Video Output Settings will automatically be reset to the standard
resolution (or detect the current display output settings of your
