Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
Bought PS3 used - I have unit hooked up properly, this I am certain...no video cable w/ unit, so I purch. component AV cable for PS3 and PS2; results of 5 sec. reset is nothing - same blue screen.... can anyone help?? thx
Since you bought this console used, it maybe set to HDMI 1080p/ 1080i/720p output(by the original owner) and if your TV does not support this there will be no picture, the only way to lower the output resoloution is to get into the options menu but to do that you will need a freind with a tv that supports whatever resoloution its been set too.

PS3 is The amazing device by sony but it has some common problems like sound , video/picture problem etc.... Good news is that these all problems can be repaired with the help of DIY Guides, one such guide available at PS3 Repair Blog

Your 3rd party component cables may be the problem as the conections for the ps2 and ps3 are way different if you look at the pins on the male end.You should at least hear audio if it is compatible and you hooked it up correctly. If no audio then your cables are hooked up incorrectly or faulty. Go on ebay and look for the actual av cables for the ps3. If your TV has HDMI slots hook it up that way.
