Hook up your PS3 to you TV with the HDMI cable. Now, when you turn on your PS3, hold the power button on the PS3 for 5 seconds. It will reset the PS3 video options and recognize the HDMI connection. It will then search for the correct resolution settings on the TV. Press (X) to confirm. And that's it. You should be set. If not, then the TV is acting rather strange.

-Good Luck
Excellent, thanks!
Turn off PS3... Hold the on button and it will turn on but keep holding untill it beeps again and continue holding for 5 sec. Then turn on normally and it should set up the HDMI
Thanks DemonLord, your idea worked. I now realize that I previously had a 1080p tv hooked up with 1080p settings and I then switched back to a 1080i tv so I guess my ps3 was still trying to display 1080p output to my 1080i tv so my tv said "mode not supported." But now I have the picture back on its 1080i pircture. Thanks again!
Thanks so much for the five second suggestion, it worked great. After we got it running we also went into the PS3 setup menu and selected automatic for video output resolution and audio output settings. This automatically resets the PS3 when you move it from one Tv to another.
Just read your advice and tried it. it works! thank you very much
I had the same problem, now its fixed. Thank you :) :) :)

Hello you must have a HDTV to get connected to the ps3

On the side of the TV, there must be a port labeled HDMI. If it is not the case then, there is no way your PS will run on your TV
