Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
Your video card probably overheated and blew up. (not that uncommon, even in computers) you will need a new ps3 because the video card is part of the ps3 board.

Press and hold the power button until
the systems shuts off. (wait 2 seconds)
Press and hold the power button again
until you here 3 beeps. Let go. Make sure that you are switching your
TV from HDMI to AV and vice versa.
It should ask you to connect your
controller via usb and press the PS button in
the middle of your controller. There
will be a menu with 6 options.
If you are able to get the AV cables to work with this method, try setting your HDMI up as you did before.
If you cannot get HDMI to work, then your output has gone out. You must use the AV/Component cables.
If you get no display at all but the system appears to be responding normally (outside of the display) then:
You have what is commonly known as the
"Green light of Death."
It is when your system powers on and acts normally but no display. Your GPU (graphics chip) has cracked or become damaged and will need to be sent in to SONY. You can try a 3rd party technician, but this repair has a very very low success rate.
