If your sure the PS3 is not the problem. You can try uplugging the television for about 5 minutes or so and plugging back in. With the PS3 hdmi hooked up to tv turn on tv. IF it still doesnot recognize then you either have a faulty main board on the television or a problem in the PS3.
You can reset the PS3 to make sure its not causing the problem. With the PS3 turned off, press and hold the power button until you hear 2 quick beeps then release and press power again. This will reset the PS3. You will not lose any stored information doing this!.
Your TV most likely requires service. You may take the unit to the retailer of service to arrange for repairs. Note: physical damage that may have been caused by the unit tipping over would not be covered under the factory warranty.
Are you sure the tv is 1080p capable? Usually when "mode is not supported" is displayed, it means that the tv can not handle the signal format that is being input to it. If you are using HDMI, then signal formatting is usually handled automatically. If you are using component video, you will probably have to tell the PS3 to step down the signal to either 1080i or 720p.
