When you say nothing happens, Does the PS3 actually power up?

Or is it just not coming up on the tv?

I had the same problem i think, what happened was when i turned it on nothing displayed on my screen or when i did it just shut off. The ps3 is like that, and what i mean is there has to be something to output a display to otherwise for some strange reason it turns off. Also ive noticed on new tvs the signal may not work with component or Scart sockets. I used HDMI on the same tv and it works fine. Try switching connections and Tvs and write what happened. Also explain the details of your problem in more details please:D
Hoped i helped in some way.

May be a silly question but did you remember to flip the main power switch in the back. There should be a red standby light if you do this, then you can turn the power on using the soft-touch button on the front

Make sure they are secure, and that its in the right sockets. If the green lights on it looks like more of a cable/tv issue.

I had this same problem the other day, my PS3 has worked faultlessly for many months connected via HDMI lead to my 42" plasma TV, anyway, powered up the PS3 the other day, green light came on but nothing on screen :eek: . I checked all wiring and re connected many times but still nothing on screen. I then wired it up to my old 14" portable TV and after many attempts I managed to tune it into the portable. I then re connected it to my main plasma TV again and this time it worked... I still don’t know why the PS3 played up, but at least it ended up behaving in the end and has been ok since. Try it in another TV or using different leads and see if that works. Good luck :gr8:
