Question about Video Game Consoles & Games
Things to try:
1. Master reset (red light, hold power button until light turns green AND blinks AND beeps).
2.If that doesn't work, find someone else with a PS3, put your hard drive in their unit and master reset again. This may bring up a screen prompting to format the hard drive. If it does, follow the instructions. Afterwards, put your hard drive back into your unit and repeat the instructions above.
If its still a blank BLACK screen, your hard drive may be shot. Email me if this doesnt solve your problem. firstname.lastname@example.org

I the hard drive might have overheated if you didn't have your system near a fan or source of cool air. Try unplugging the unit for a few hours and let it do a self master reset, and then turning on the unit and see if the hard drive reboots.
