I got the same prob wat do i do help somebody!!!
with the PS3 in an off state, hold down the power button until you hear a bleep (normally takes about 5 sec)
Let go of the pwoer button and you should get the display reset screen, which will detect what to output your display to HDMI or Scart.

didnt work for me.. i hold it down for the display settings and after two beeps im still getting a black screen? this happened to me two days ago but I switched HDMI cords and ports and its worked fine. Ive had to set it to hdmi before and this method has worked before. I have an older PS3 80 GB. any ideas?

This happen to me just tonight when I downloaded the new map pack. Try going to your Game Data folder and Save Data file and delete anything related to MW2. That should do the trick.

Well I have just joined this merry band - a brand new PS3 320gb and a Sony Bravia KDL-37EX403, which is about 2 months old. Got the PS3, plugged it in, connected via an HDMI cable - bingo - that was about a week to ten days ago. Watched a dvd 2 nights ago, went to turn it on to try to get PlayTV working and got the black screen. Looked like it might be a cable problem so was gonna replace it, the shop I went to tested the cable and it was fine. So I have tested the PS3 on a non-HDMI TV and it works fine. The shop suggested it might be the Sony Sync - I have tried on/off all combos. I did manage to get a DVD playing but with no picture.
Having trawled the web a bit tonight this is clearly a major problem.
I reset the TV to factory settings and did the same with the PS3 on the other tv - no joy.
I haven't tried the holding down of the power on button twice, yet, but will later.
This is driving me nuts....what happens to Singstar on Boxing Day, now?

Well I thought I had been very clever by changing a couple of settings when hooked up to the HD TV but with a multi AV cable rather than the HD cable....it worked! Then I went to put the machine back where it lives and the screen went black - I swapped the ends of the HD cable so the bad one was in the TV and not subject to any movement - it's definitely the cable or where the cable connects to the PS3.
We had Singstar on Boxing Day and what a hoot!
A new cable will be bought.

this has been an ongoing problem with the PS3 since it first came out. I had an original ps3 fatboy thing when they 1st came out and now have a slim, but the problem persists. It is mighty annoying and I have no idea at all why Sony has never addressed it either. resetting the video settings via the power buttons seldom works, a load of switching on and off and disconnecting the power for 20 mins, 40, an hour or whatever is not always successful.
Please Sony Find a fix for this ASAP
