Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
I turn on my PS3 and nothing happens. I get the green light but thats it. Can I fix this?
Unfortunately, you can leave the unit unplugged for about an hour and try again. otherwise, you'll have to either exchange the unit, or call sony and go through their warranty process. this is the only problem that PS3s have that compares to the "red-ring" issue of the 360s.....fortunately for PS3 owners, this is the only thing they would have to worry about. to the best of my recollection, it has something to do with the internal HDD of the PS3, as sometimes, the HDD controller just "goes out". there really isnt anything you can do except for calling sony. sorry :(

Previous answer could be right, but before you go sending your beloved PS3 off to a workshop somewhere, you should try resetting the graphics settings. To do this, turn off your PS3, then press AND HOLD on the Power Symbol for some time until you hear the beeps, and the green power indicator should flash green for a second or so. This should only be necessary if you change from HDMI to Component or vice versa, but it's a decent idea, instead of having to call in the Sony boys.

I went to you tube and typed in how to fix ps3 black screen and followed the instructions and found that it was my hard drive that was corrupted.
I will post again when I have changed the hard drive. I hope this helps.

Same thing happened to my first PS3 about a week after i got it, except i did not try to install anything. I called SONY tech support to troubleshoot but did not work, they decided to send me a warranty replacement, I havent had an issue with my new PS3. I recommend you do the same
