Lets see the PS3 wants to display 1080P. The monitor can't except that resolution so it gives a black screen since there is no down converting scaler. Meaning the signal your trying to send is out of range on the monitor.
Now a TV has a built in scaler that automatically downconverts it to the TV's supported resolution. Thus giving you a picture instead of a black screen.
His only option is to force the PS3 to forget it even has 1080I/P and try and run 720P and switch his monitors resolution. In other words if the monitor had a scaler built in he wouldn't have run into the problem. But since it doesn't he has to manually fiddle with settings until it excepts the signal.
