    You've done this?

    Put PS3 in standby mode...

    Hold Power button for 10 seconds-ish until it double beeps.

    Wait a second. You bought a non-working PS3? Then you took it apart? Then you are here asking why it isn't working?

    That PS3 might be configured to work under different visual/audio settings. Turning off the PS3, then holding down the power button for 10-15 seconds might solve it.

    My cousin recently had a problem where nothing would show up but his ps3 would get the screen that would allow you to format the hard drive, ect. I installed the latest firmware and it worked just fine again.

    More than likely it's toast. You mentioned in the video that the person who gave it too you said he dropped it. You've done the reset for the video reset, it's not working. It cost you nothing, toss it and move on.

    Or you could save up 150$ and send it in for repairs. They'll fix it for you, and then you got a working unit to use as a backup.
