OK it sounds like a problem I had with one of the units that came into my shop, I do believe you will need a new part which means you will need to break the seal. I suggest you call sony and see what they say and what they will do for you. 1-800-345-SONY (7669)
If they want to charge you id say forget it and try it yourself.
i can send you a guide to help you fix it.
I am thinking a sensor board or a power supply could be others and its hard since its not in my face but let me know what sony says and letss fix this baby.
I do also buy broken ps3s and can help you find a steal on a used or new unit!

SOURCE: HDMI green screen
1-HDMI is available in several versions. The PLAYSTATION 3 is
compatible with HDMI version 1.3 or higher, which will take full
advantage of Blu-ray Disc™ high-definition video. There are also "Type
A" and "Type B" connectors. The PLAYSTATION 3 uses the 19-pin Type A
connector, which will allow resolutions up to 1080p.
The HDMI cable is not included with the PLAYSTATION 3. If you are using an HDMI to DVI converter, you may wish to remove this adaptor.
2- The resolution output (i.e., picture quality) of the PLAYSTATION 3 will depend on three factors:
The type of cable used and the inputs available on the TV or display monitor.
The maximum resolution the TV or display monitor can support. The PLAYSTATION 3 can output two types of resolution: HD and SD. Refer to the TV or display monitor's owner's manual to check which video modes are supported.
The maximum resolution programmed into the source material (movie or game). Refer to the software packaging for information on maximum resolution details or contact the publisher directly.
3- Try connecting with the supplied AV Cable instead of the HDMI to see if you can get a successful installation. This will help determine where the problem may be with your particular HMDI setup and/or equipment.
4- Disconnect any coaxial cables at the point closest to the television. Signals sent through coaxial cables may cause interference with the sound and picture outputted from the PLAYSTATION 3 which results in buzzing and humming noises from your display and speakers.

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??
