How do I connect my sky to tv

Without specifics on your TV or SKY box I can only offer general information. The SKY digital satellite receiver will have a number of outputs for connection to your TV. There will be a co-axial output similar to a TV aerial connection which is for older TVs and most flat screen TVs won't be able to tune into this RF output. There will be a large black rectangular connector which is a SCART connector and this can usually be connected to most flat screen TVs with a suitable SCART lead. There should also be a small connector called a HDMI output which is now the most common way of connecting to flat screen TVs, requiring a HDMI lead. Depending on which method you use to connect to the TV, you then use the TV remote control to select the input you used, which could be listed as SCART, AV1, AV2, HDMI1, HDMI2 etc.

How do I change my resolution on my 32 inch flat screen from 480 to 720

Assuming your TV will support 720p signals, check how you have the TV connected to the Playstation 3. Change your video cable to component video or HDMI, depending on the TV. (The Composite input is limited to 480i (SD) pictures. The same is true for a SCART connection.) Put the TV to the new input by pressing the Input Source button on the TV Remote or through the menu depending on your TV.

You may have to do the first of these steps before changing your cables and the TV input source (I'm not sure). On the Playstation, select Settings and then Display Settings.Choose your video output (component or HDMI). Next select all resolution that the TV can use. (Most 32" TVs only do 720p. There are some that can do 1080i or 1080p.) Confirm the video connection works. Then Save your settings.

For screen captures of the steps, see: . You should always turn off the TV and the Playstation before swapping the cables. (So you may need to stop and save after setting the output to component video. Then return to the Display Settings menu.)

I hope this helps.

I purchased yesterday a 42"

I came across this very same problem a year or so ago regarding a Plasma TV and connection via scart. It turned out to be a problem with the scart lead. Replacing the lead with an all pins connected type fixed the problem. It was caused by the TV not being given the +ve voltage on pin8 and the TV thought it was not a proper signal and shut down.
Hope that helps.

Trying to connect playstation 3 to my tv having no success

For real try this:
Turn off the tv as well as the ps3 (to where the red ps3 light is on); Then just hold down the power button in the front for like 15 seconds or so, at least until you hear a beep. Then turn the Tv back on, and hopefully once you get the tv back on the correct hdmi input, you'll see that little message offering you to switch to optimum settings.
Hope it works. Did for me.

The blue screen on most flat panel tvs is an option that is selectable in the menu that substitutes the normally seen snow with a blue screen. Consult your owners manual to see if this option is available on your model. If so then disable this option as it will also effect the AV inputs when there is no signal present. You may also want to check your AV cables.
