Ali,
 
That's because after the reset it lost the video configuration. Turn it on pressing and holding the I/O in the front for 5 seconds. You should hear a second beep. Release it and the PS3 will autodetect your tv.
 
Are you using an HDMI cable?  If this is the case, and it still doesn't show any picture, is because it's waiting your OK to switch to HDMI video. You should press LEFT on your D-PAD and then the X button (I've learnt to do this by memory, cause I have the same issue after a reset).
Best Regards

Hard reset aint working for me either. Holding eject you hear a sound coming from the ps3. That's the ps3 attempting to suck the disc back in and read it than trying to spit it back out since there really aint a disc trying to be sucked in. So what I'm sayin is neither things are helpful.

Hard resetting by just switching it off in the back or by that guys method? Because I didn't see a screen saying I did a hard reset come up. What method did you use?

Turns out that I really did initiate a hard reset.  But that didn't result in any change to behaviour.  I'm currently following another suggestion that I found to see if that would work:

1. Hard Reset (Sorry...hard reset via the method described in the other thread)
2. Full Format

Its formatting now (my system is new enough that I have no saves)...I think I have a hardware problem, but if it really is a firmware problem, this may weed it out.

Sorry...corrected my post.  I followed his steps and realized that it did indeed reset my system.
