From power off, hold down the power button on the console for a few seconds until it beeps. This will bring up the display setup screen.

I just tried.... still black screen.... the fan it's working but I have no idea what it's wrong... I always turn it off the same way and I had this ps3 model (80 GB) for like 2 years and never gave me any trouble

Re: My ps3 won't show any image/sound on tv

Ok I just fixed it, tholught I would shre it with everyone:

I noticed that after changing the TV input to dish-TV setting (which was via a different HDMI TV connector) a problem was listed on the screen. The satellite box (dishnetwork) message stated an issue with the HDMI connection and would not display a TV show, only satellite guide info. This lead me to suspect the TV instead of the PS3. So I powered everything down (TV, PS3, satellite box) and then turned off the surge protector. After a minute, I powered everything back on and the PS3, satellite, TV was working as it had been doing the previous day.

I believe that the TV got into a weird state and was unable to perform the standard HDMI handshaking. Thus, a million reboots by the PS3 would have never solved the problem, but a reboot of the HDTV would fix it; as it did. During the many PS3 reboots I frantically performed, the PS3 was very quiet making me think that something was very wrong with the PS3, such as the hdd was bad or the OS was corrupt. But since it was a relatively easy and painless fix I thought I'd put the process up here for anyone else having a similar problem.
