If it's one of the original PS3's (might be the same for the new) you can hold the power button down when you're powering it up until it beeps and then let go of the power button. This will make the PS3 search for what video devices are plugged in. If you're using the HDMI it will say "An available HDMI device was detected. Do you want to output video and audio using HDMI?", and you wan to say YES. Then it will automatically set the resolution (should set to 1080i) and give you 30 seconds to confirm the video works by saying YES again. This TV will not support a 1080p output so if you try to change the PS3 to 1080p resolution it will not work.
I have also received this message when I had a bad HDMI cable.
