Try to borrow a HDMI cable from someone else, or try yor setup on another HDTV, and sdee if the results are the same, then at least you can narrow down the problem to the TV or the cable.

Yes you can fix this and it happens because of similar reasons to the red lights of doom on the Xbox 360. You can fix it with a recommended guide or you can send it in to be fixed.

You can try the steps below. Its from PlayStation Forum:
1. Turn off Playstation®3.
2. Hold the power button down; the system will turn on and turn off once again.
3. Once the System has been shutdown, re-press you finger until you hear 2 consecutive beeps
4. When you hear the 2 beeps take finger off power button.
5. You will be prompted to plug in your controller via USB and then hit the PS button
6. The Recovery menu will pop up.
The current Recovery Menu supports:
• Restart System: Restarts the PLAYSTATION®3 System.
• Restore Default Settings: Reset all system settings back to default.
• Restore File System: Checks for corrupt/missing system files.
• Rebuild Database: Rebuilds the OS for the PLAYSTATION®3.
• Restore PS3 System: Fresh restore; Deletes everything and starts from Scratch.
• System Update: Update the PLAYSTATION®3 System
If the above steps still does not solve the problem, then I think will have to update your Ps3.
Update your PS3 (in the settings menu the 1st option).
Go on the internet browser on the PS3 then go on the menu press triangle then on one of them there are delete cookies and the delete the others as
well as cookies.
You could also try this as well: put the PS3 on then press the eject button (with no disc in) then hold it and switch the PS3 off at the back with your finger on the eject button still holding it, then put it back on and the fan test should be working this may cool it down. It might be over heating.
But if your problem is not still solved, then maybe you should call sony for further assistance.
I wish you good luck

typically this is known to be a critical failure of a hardware component found by trouble shooting there is a remedy my friend used he found a guy on his local kijiji-craiglist who fixed them the guy gave him a trade in of 60$ trade in for the console and switched harddrive into a refurbished unit and he was back in action for 100$ cash which could easily be spent trying to fix this unit hope this helps a little as there is little you can do to this at home with limited resources good luck
