It sounds like you may have some corrupted data on your hard drive. The link below will help you address this. If you still have trouble then you are having a hardware problem with the system.

Won't boot up


it maybe a hardware failure, or it can be anything really... you might try to reset configuration by holding the power button for more than 4 seconds... it will reset your display settings and so on...
you blueray maybe stuck aswell , hold it for 10 seconds it will force a "disc out"
the last you can do is , that is ofcourse you dont have a warranty , open it up (see youtube video"ps3 bluereay disassembe" how to open it)

All i get is a backround no words, no connection for controllers


are you connected with the HDMI cable? DId you switch TVs recently?

You might have the resolution under settings set wrong. so the screen is really tiny. If your remote for the tv has a zoom option, zoom up until you can see the settings to change the output
