Turn off the PS3 with the switch on the back, then turn back on. wait till the light is solid red then hold your finger on the start button for abount 10 seconds until you hear it beep twice.
It will then ask you to connect a controller via the usb cable and press the PS button. Once you do this it will bring up the reset menu.
Unfortunately the only way I found that solves this is a full system restore that wipes the hard drive completely.
You do however retain and data saved online such as COD stats etc and playstation store purchases with your PSN.
Hope this helps??

I posted to your problem with a similar one. I was able to get my PS3 to work by:
1.) Powering down both the PS3 and ViewSonic LCD
2.) Unplugging the power cables to both PS3 and LCD
3.) Waiting at least 10 or more seconds
4.) Plugging in the power cables to both PS3 and LCD
5.) Turning on the ViewSonic LCD
6.) Turning on the PS3 and holding down the power button until the beep
After this sequence I heard the bootup audio and the menu appeared on the screen- which detected the HDMI connection to my LCD.
Very odd.. I've had my PS3 in the same place for months and just today this happened.
I wanted to post my success. Best of luck!
