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.

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.

Had the same problem,

I know it's not the PS3, cuz my cable box decided to do the same thing at the same time.

Looked around the web and it seems it has to do with HDCP

(High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection)

So with my cable box I connected it via component cables and it solved that problem

(seeing that component is still analog)

I haven't tried component cable with the PS3 yet, but I have turned off and unplugged my TV several times. Doesn't seem to work.

And of course this happens when I have a week off of work and all I want to do is play video games.
