I try diffrent cables ... diffrent video out ... 2 diffrent TV ... change thermal paste on RSX and CPU ...stilll have same problem
this is YLOD, GPU RSX reflow or reball.

Can this fixed anyone see this problem on ps3 ?
There are several symptoms ylod or glod, the graphics chip overheating solder under the RSX chip is cracking and needs a reflow or reball.
I don't know how to reflow or reball and what is mean ? I change thermal paste on CPU and RSX and same problem
I done with hair drive 20 minutes CPU RSX and south bridge and not helped me ...
have you tried turning it on buy only holding the power button till it beeps one time then let go that should reset the video output. This happened to me also i had to go through hell trying to figure out what was happening in the end i had to use my xbox 360 and my lg plasma tv to actually fix it.
i connected the 360 to my lg got it into 1080p cause the ps3 was outputting in hdmi then took it back and hooked it up to my cheapo tv the 360 started up so then i tried the ps3 and hey presto it worked don't know how but it did i believe its something to do with certain tv's and the ps3, cheap tv's seem to be the biggest culprits.
have you ever red screen?
2high4u actually has the best upfront solution.. make sure ps3 is on component and not hdmi if your using old school playstation plug for your output to tv.. because it will be a black screen with no sound.. component is used for old school playstation console plug which has (rca 3 wires..red white yellow outputs to tv or the hdmi 5 wire outputs to tv.. green blue red video cables/ red white audio cables).. to switch your console over to either hdmi or playstation plug.
first, hold power down it will turn on then off.. second, hold power down until you get one beep then let go (two beeps takes you into safe mode).. this will switch your video selector on ps3 console to hdmi cable (identical tips cable) output to the old school playstation plug output (with three to five wires on opposite end) or viceversa which ever one your using.. it takes about ten seconds to switch over..
if switching your console video over didn't work... you may have to do heat gun 4 penny trick.. i do both.. heat-gun helps with re-ball issues.. 4 penny helps with future issues against rsx/motherboard separation.. new thermo paste helps with keeping it cool.. heat gun
four penny trick
these to fixes have fixed all my power up issues..
