Is the power switch on the back of the PS3 on?  You should see a red light on the front of the PS3 for this to work and you need to hold the power button down on the PS3 it's self and not the controller.

It's the power button.  It's right next to the eject button on the PS3.

After you hear the 2 beeps take your finger off of it.  Once you get it working again you should go under the display settings and make sure that the only resolutions selected are the ones that your TV supports and it shouldn't happen again.

thats the problem i only hear one beep...the second after that turns the system off
 
heres what i do
 
 
switch the power on
hold the I/O
it beeps once and thats when it starts up
then it beeps again after about 3-4 seconds
usually about 1 or 2 seconds after that beep the no signal sign goes away and i can play cuz i get picture. that is if it works of course
and the third beep is if i hold it down to long waiting for the no signal to go off my screen which turns it off
 
its not 2 beeps right in a row if thats what your guys are talkin about

Yes it should beep 2 time right in a row.

Do it in this order.
1.  System off/stand by, but the switch in the back is on (red light on the front).
2.  Press and hold the I/O (power) button and do not release it untill it turns on and you hear 2 beeps.
3  After you hear the 2 beeps, remove your finger from the I/O (power) button.

If your only getting 1 beep and the power is off/stand by, then I'm guessing that your finger is slipping or something like that.

if i take it off nothing happens it doesnt show picture to the startup because the no signal thing is still up there. it just runs with no picture or sound.
 
sad to say but my finger isn't sliping or anything
 
i've never herd 2 beeps right in a row before.
 
just as i described above.
 
does having a smaller model have to do with anything because i have a 20GB.
 
when i press and hold the I/O it beeps once to turn on
then beeps again for something after a few seconds. then i wait till the no signal thing goes off my screen then release the I/O button and i usually have it but i guess my TV won't pickup the signal...i have no idea what the out put for the TV and PS3 are (don't have PS3 manual)

I guess its time to call Sony.
I believe you've tried everything.
 
Are you sure your cables aren't loose?
Try unplugging your cables and replug it. Make sure its secured.
 
If that didn't work, sorry to say but that call is what you got to do.
