Did you try it exactly like this:

While the PS3 is off (solid red led) Hold down the power button until you hear the SECOND BEEP, quickly release.

The power button on the FRONT of the PS3.

Have you tried it on a different TV, you need to narrow down weather it is the PS3 or the TV. If it doesn't work on another TV the PS3 GFX card will be faulty.
If you normally use HDMI try and use a different cable or try it on a friends (borrow one) just to prove yours is good.

Let meknowhow you get on. Not sure you can replace the RSX GFX in the gen 1.

Good Luck

Ps3 plays audio but does not show image on tv


Well you can just use the hdmi cable if you're going both audio and video in to your tv. With your hdmi cable you get the best quality for both.

But in anycase, it seems that your PS3 is set up to output video via HDMI cable. To reset our video output settings, simply power down your PS3 (turned off) and hold down the power button until you hear the second beep. (around 5-10 secs) Power back up and hopefully you'll have video via your av cable. 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!
