    PS3 Resolution TV Problem

    So my current TV has broken or something (no picture will show whatsoever, even for games. Audio works perfectly though), so for the time being, we're using my mom's smaller TV. However, hooking up the PS3 to it isn't working. I plug it into the TV (a 32" Sylvania if it helps), HDMI cable too, and it says "Resolution mismatch, change the resolution on the device". And when I remove the HDMI cable, the PS3 isn't on any channel. Can someone here help. or do I have to tough it out until we get a new TV?

    Is your new television at a lower native resolution? If you go from a 1080p to a 720p HDTV without changing the resolution on the ps3 it won't show the picture.

    I'm not sure what the resolution on my "new" TV is, but that sounds like a probable cause. Can I adjust the native resolution of the TV so it aligns with the PS3's?

    If you hold the power button down and keep it pressed for a while it should (I think) beep 2-3 times and that will reset your PS3 to the original factory settings and that may work.

    You say your PS3 is not in any channel? Do you not press the game button for input on the remote controller for the sylvania tv?

    If you do the power button reset look up the proper number of beeps. IF you hold it too long it may reset your entire system (I think)
