Make sure the system is off. Hold down the Power Button for 5-6 seconds until you hear the second beep. Your video settings should now be reset and you will be able to choose your connection type. It will automatically default to AV so make sure you at least have that plugged in.

Make sure you are getting power to the receptacle, a circuit breaker may have popped. If you have a surge protector then push the reset button. If you have power to the receptacle, then insert windows cd in tray before turning it on, then select boot from cd then hit enter. This will often recover the boot sequence and load the desktop screen. Restart the computer without the cd and see if the desktop comes up. Good luck, had to do this to a desktop unit running Windows XP.
This problem is because your PS3 software has become corrupt. The following steps will cure the problem but you will lose saved games and all other data. Your trophies will not be affected as these are stored by the Playstation Network.
Step 1. Turn your PS3 onto standby (Red light on)
Step 2. Press and hold the power button. It will beep as soon as you press it, beep 5 seconds later then beep once more 5 seconds later and then turn back to standby. Release the power button.
Step 3. Press and hold the power button again. It will beep when you first press it, beep again 5 seconds later and then beep twice quickly. Let go of the power button as soon as you hear these two beeps.
Step 4. The PS3 will start up asking you to plug in a controller with a USB cable and press the PS button. Do this and it will boot into the recovery menu.
Step 5. Choose option 5 (Restore PS3 system). This will re-install the PS3 software and restart the console.
Step 6. When the PS3 restarts you will be asked to enter the time and date and other information. When the setup is complete your PS3 will boot into the home menu normally.
When the PS3 is powered on but not booting correctly press and hold the power button.
You will need to hold it for about 30-60 seconds, the PS3 will beep a bunch of times. Flip the power switch in the back to turn the console completely off, wait a few seconds then turn it back on. This is doing what's called a "Hard-Reset". It will reset the video output back to your TV.
If this does not solve the issue then the PS3 will need to be professionally repaired. Sony can help you for $150 but you'll loose your game data.
Gatpro repair does that repair for $79 and it comes with free shipping!

Check the hard drive first, turn off ps3,....take out the hard drive the hard drive is on the left bottom side, pop the panel off with a small flat head screw driver of knife, then take out the single screw holding it and slide the hard drive to the right with the little handle. it looks like it should pull straight out but it doesnt you have to go straight to the right with it first to get it out of the connectors then pull straight out( when pulling straight out it should be completely free and just lide out) then boot the ps3 with no hard drive and see if it trys to boot but says no hard drive found instead of the yellow light. if this happens then its the hard drive, you may have to get a new one. any laptop sata drive will work. but before you order a new one try turning ps3 off and putting same hard drive back in this seems to fix a few.
next try the fan test, with the power switch on the back of the ps3 in the "off" position put your finger on the eject button and hold hit there while you turn the switch on the back to the "on" possition never letting go of the eject button and see if it boots then with a loud fan noise. if it doesnt then could be a number of problems with motherboard or fan or just over heating.
try removing the hard drive then booting it up then putting it back in and booting up again.
then try holding the power button while the ps3 is in standby (red light) till it beeps,... then beeps again,...then turns red again,....then let go and hold the power button again real fast you should hear beep....then a double beep beep. let go of button and you should see recovery console. choose rebuild file system. it will reboot and go through the rebuild steps. then if it still doesnt work go through the steps of recovery consol again and choose rebuild database.
Hi, this sounds like a problem with your hard drive booting up. This seems to happen alot with the PS3s. Try taking the hard drive out and putting it in another PS3 and see if it does the same thing. If it does then your hard drive is damaged and needs replaced.
Try reseting your PS3. Turn your PS3 completely off by the switch in the back. Then flip the switch back on. Press on the power button and hold it until the green light comes on, beeps twice then the green light should go out, replaced by a red light. Then turn it on normally.
