Playstation 3 Issue/Will not Display a Picture or Sound/More Complicated than it Sounds!

Okay before you say to Hold the Power Button Down for a couple of seconds till i Hear 3 Beeps so it defaults back to SD Resolution I have already tried that numrious amount of times as I have somewhat more knowledge about the Playstation than the odd person but this one has baffled me...

Basically my Brother In Law's Playstation 3 (40GB) Machine stopped Displaying a Picture or any type of Sound from the XMB at all a month ago. Whenever you turn it on it flickers to a less Black Screen as if it was about to show an image and then remains on a Black Screen. You cant even hear the XMB in the background when selecting Yes Or No if you were to Reset it back to Standard Defintion.... Another weird thing is that usually when you turn off a Playstation 3 Console It Beeps once then warns you it's turning off. This one however you have to Hold Down the Button Until it's fully off for about 10 Seconds. It's not certainly Normal at all. I Have a feeling the MotherBoard might be fried but I dont know. I would call up Sony right now but they're closed I think and it's an 0845 (Expensive Number) Has anything got any ideas what it might be?

Nope. I Have only witnessed those for the 60GB Models.

Because this is first time i've seen it since he told me about it as I thought it would have been as easy as resetting it back to the Standard Def. So first time i myself have seen the problem.
