So i got the black screen and as many more have working scrat, but not hdmi.
So far i have tried:
1.reset video defaults(by holding power on button for 10 secs)
3.changing hdmi cables
I have red about setup menu but i cant format my HDD and deleate psn user saved password, since i was using local email which is no longer working and after the psn password reset on may i cant change it since i forgot it,because i couldnt enter the old one i had to come up with new one which i wanted to change back ,but hadnt chance in summer because i wasnt able to get to network. So i guess i cant retrive my password without working email and that means i cant use ps3 setup menu.So is there another way to fix it without sending it to sony (warranty ended few months ago) and without the setup menu ? And i might know how that happened. My ps3 usualy is hooked to the monitor since he has full HD while TV doesnt and i was busy with computer my brother connected to TV which has dvi input (with HDMI to DVI converter) (The ps3 was running) and when he did that the tv had a black black screen saying no signal and when i connected it back to monitor it didnt work then i connected to my friends fullHD tv and still not working.

Have you tried connecting the Av cable that come with the ps3 and the HDMI at the same time?
First select the AV cable channel - Goto dispay settings and select HDMI output (on ps3) - Select 720p or whatever and quickly change your tv over to the HDMI channel to see if you getting any picture over HDMI.
If not try another resolution than 720p,using the above method.
EDIT - Sorry,i misread your post.You say your using a monitor?
I guess theres no AV inputs?

whin i select HDMI it asks me to change to HDMI and if thereis a blanc screen for 30 seconds it will return to previous state, but i cant change resolution i could do that when HDMI still worked. but in those 30 seconds when i switch to hdmi chanel it is black and blank saying no signal. I had it taken to electronics repairman and he looked at it for a week and said that it should work as he checked the slot is not damaged or anything so i think it could be system malfunction in which case i should restore system
Monitor has scart aswell

i'm not sure what the problem is.
Maybe somebody with a bit more knowledge in this area could help you out,because i'm stumped.
I had a friend who had a similair problem - We used the above 2 cables trick and it worked.
Hope you get it sorted.

I had pretty much the same issue a couple of months after getting my launch model and after about 2 months of tv engineer visits it turned out to be the motherboard in the tv.The HDMI port was failing and the tv engineers had to send someone out to Japan to work out what was causing it.In the end i had to have a modified mother board fitted and i never had a problem again.It was a LG unit but the engineers were telling me at the time that a lot of manufacturers were having the same problem.
Might be worth you getting in touch with the warranty people for your moniter?

As he said he tried with just one tv in his workshop and with both cables, but he said that he checked the slot and it seemed fine, so he asked one of his friends at sony center where they could'nt come up with solution.
