Please try this procedure to connect the PS3 to TV..
The PS3 has a Blu-ray drive that can be
used not only for playing games but also for watching high-definition
movies. The best way to connect a PS3 to a high-definition viewing
device such as a video projector is through the PS3's high-definition
multimedia interface (HDMI) output. The HDMI connection can transmit up
to 1080p high-definition from the PS3 to the video projector using a
single cable. Attaching and setting up the HDMI cable will only take a
few minutes and will let you watch high-definition video from the PS3 on
the video projector.
Attach one end of the HDMI cable
to the HDMI output connector of the PS3. Turn the HDMI cable around if
it does not slip right into the HDMI output, because the HDMI cable can
only fit into an HDMI connector one way.
Attach the other end of the HDMI cable to the HDMI input connector
that is on the video projector. Make sure both sides of the HDMI cable
is securely pushed into the connectors of the PS3 and of the video
projector. Turn on the video projector. Press the "Menu" button on the
video projector's remote. Navigate to the "Sources" setting on the video
projector's Menu. Select "HDMI" from the "Sources" setting. Press the
"Menu" button on the remote control again to exit the Menu.
Adjusting the PS3
Turn on the PS3. Wait for the
"Home" menu to appear on the video projector, although the quality of
the video seen from the video projector will be muddied and dark.
Navigate from the "Home" menu to the "Systems" icon using the game
controller and select the "Display Settings" tab. Choose "Video Output
Settings" from the list presented in the screen that appears. Press the
right side of the directional pad on the game controller to move to the
Choose "HDMI" from the list presented in the screen that appears.
Press the right side of the directional pad on the game controller to
move to the next screen. Choose "Automatic" from the list presented in
the screen that appears. Press the right side of the directional pad on
the game controller to move to the "Confirmation" screen. Press the "X"
button on the game controller to make the settings active. Return to the
PS3's "Home" menu.
Watching the PS3
Insert a Blu-ray disc into the
slot at the front of the PS3. Wait as the Blu-ray disc begins to play
the video content on the video projector from the PS3 through the HDMI

I had this exact same problem with the Expendables. I have a Sharp BD-HP22U. I found this fix on another site regarding another movie. I thought it was a long shot, but gave it a try anyway....and it worked. Here's what to do:
Turn off whichever device (TV or Receiver) your HDMI cable is going into - turn on Blu-Ray player, load Blu-Ray disc and then turn on the other device. Hope this works for you.
I've been told that Blue Ray movies don't work on PS3 unless you use an HDMI cable; but I haven't tested that. Also, some Blue-ray on PS3 load as movies, some load as games depending on the content. So check the automatic play feature, see if you can select the BD from the video
section. On your Xross media bar, go to videos and see if there is a blue disc
(BD-rom), click X.
Also make sure that the movie is actually blue-ray. Some old HD movies are sold off on eBay, etc as Blue ray when they aren't. Check it on Blueray.com, if the movie isn't listed it may be HD only.
You may, need to update over the internet for that to work, properly.
Also try this go to BD/DVD Settings, then BD 1080P 24Hz Output (HDMI) and changed the setting from "automatic" to "off"... Then try & replay the movie.
Your PS3 set itself above the max resolution your LC-C3237U. Most likely the PS3 is doing 1080P, but the highest the Sharp can do is 1080i. So do this:
1. Connect PS3 to TV (you can use the current cable or analog cable)
2. Turn on TV and set input to port PS3 is on. 3. Make sure PS3 is connected via correct cable. 4. Power on PS3 via power button and HOLD IT for 5 seconds (release after the second beep). It should automatically configure your PS3 to the TV's native resolution for all settings.
I had the exact same problem as you did... I bought the Sharp Aquos 42D85X which came with Sharp BD-HP21X Blu-ray Disc player. could not get brand new blu-ray movies to play and i found it froze everytime after 10 secs. I phoned sharp who basically were no help watsoever! I then went and returned my blu-ray movies back to the store thinking it was a problem with the discs.. The people there were extremely nice and since they had a display model of the BD-HP21X instore they offered to test the movie on it to veroify whether it was the blu-ray player was the problem or not. Turns out its a fault with all of the BD-HP21X models. So we then ended up returning it back to the store we bought it and exchanged it with the older model (BD-HP20X). I now have no problems playing blu-ray movies. Although another suggestion is to perhaps download the lastest firmware update & see if that resolves your issues.
