2 things you can do, buy HDMI cable, only few bucks on ebay.com, or check and see why component cables aren't working

Also , have you setup your T.V. to recieve the PS3 signal , may have to select another channel such as AV .

As learninggeek said it's because the display on the playstation 3 is set to HDMI (although it's not because the cables aren't working). I tricked geek squad (idiots) with this once by bringing it in and saying the display didn't work. Reality was I just wanted a brand new ps3. He deemed it as faulty because he couldn't get it to display either. You can either buy an HDMI tv or go back to that person to use their TV and go to Settings -> Display Settings and choose Component.
