I would also like add I did bought it from my friend earlier today and it work PERFECTLY. We were playing COD on his HDTV and I wasn't seeing "no signal" from his TV.
Is there something I am doing wrong or missing something? Because I am tired of seeing "No signal"...
No signal through hdmi usually means you're getting a standard def signal which isn't being relayed through hdmi. Holding down the button as already mentioned usually resets the video settings but if that doesnt work for you try this: disconnect hdmi from playstation, grab the RCA cords that came with the playstation (the standard def audio and video output cables...red white and yellow) plug them into your tv or HT whatever ur setup is...then leave the hdmi unplugged from your playstation...what u want to have is playstation plugged into tv via standard def. Then turn on your ps, and you'll probs be able to access the xmb...then just go to display settings>video output setting>hdmi>custom>check all four settings (480p 720p 1080i 1080p) then press right on your controller and x to save settings...then plug the hdmi into your playstation and see if you get a signal...hope this helps.
One more thing, if this doesn't work, and your screen is still black, make sure cross color reduction filter is set to off cuz I once experienced the same issue when tinkered with that particular setting...it's found in display settings.
If all this doesn't work, throw the dam thing out the window :P
