So i read through lots of these posts and my PS3 still doesnt work. I've tried hdmi cables, the regular av cables and the psyclone 5 wire one. Nothing works. I've also tried doing the resetting thing many times. I only get sound, no picture. This PS3 works with my moniter, but i cant get it to see picture on my TV. Could it be that its a white PS3 from singapore? Im using it in the US

What is probably happening, is your PS3 is set for the wrong type of output. If you are using an HDMI cord, try switching to the AV cables that came with your PS3, and set your TV at the appropriate input to correspond with the AV hookups, and see if the picture works then.
If you are using the AV cables, it may have been set to HDMI accidentally. You need to use an HDMI cord, and hook the PS3 up to an HDMI compatible TV or monitor, and select the HDMI input. Once you get the picture working, go to Settings>Display Settings and set the display you wish to use.
first if you do not have one you will need an HDMI cable, depending where you get it, it can cost you anywhere from $15-$165 it doesnt matter which one you get they all work, now if you dont got one an hdtv is next with a hdmi hookup,
easy way, have your ps3 on, then plig hdmi to back of ps3, then go to the sisplay settings and change it from AV component to HDMI and there you go.
harder way, ps3 off, hdmi in, av component not plugged in, reset ps3 till you get the picture on your HDTV
Your PS3 auto-adjusted to the HDMI Input cable, so you will need to find somewhere that you can either get an HDMI cable or a HDMI TV, so you can view the screen. Then you can hook up the A/V jacks and go to your Videa and Audio Output Settings and choose them, disabling the HDMI hookup selected. Then you'll be back in business!
make sure video cable is plugged in all the way on back of ps3. the a/v cable is little tricky. it looks like its plugged all the way but its not. also if doesnt work, if u have hdmi cable use it then go to display settings, then connetions. set it up as av cable connection then it will ask about audio - av rca connetions. and save. now its set up as av cables and then when u use hdmi it will automatically set up hdmi.
do you get picture on tube tv if so hook up to tube tv go to settings and set for hdmi then turn off and take to hd tv hook up with hdmi cable and should work you need to set hdmi in settings as it will be set for s-video at 480p I do believe
When you connecting sony via hdmi sony and tv must be shut down.First turn on sony then tv.Connect also and av cable or scart then go to sony settings and change out signal via hdmi or scart or av cabel and confirm.That should work
i currently have the exact same problem...i always play HDMI but i went home from college for thanksgiving and wanted to play on a regular AV jack TV, hooked up, and have no picture whatsoever...and i think it's because of the settings on the PS3 since it's set to send out an HD signal...Well i found this straight from Playstation3.com, on the support/troubleshooting section
If the video output settings on the PLAYSTATION®3 do not match
those of the cable or TV in use, there may be no picture. If the screen
goes blank, turn off the system.
Then, with only the PLAYSTATION®3 and the TV connected,
touch the system's power button for more than 5 seconds to turn the
system back on. The video output settings will automatically be reset
to the standard resolution."
