The reason that you are getting this error is because the video setting on your PS3 got change to something that you TV does not support.
The link below will help you put the PS3 into recovery mode to reset the video. Note you will want to have the AV cable plugged in when you do this.

What to do when the ps3 shows "invalid format"?


For games, it means you inserted a unsupported disc. This is usually the case when say, inserting a xbox game into the PS3, or when trying to play a copied game.

For videos or music files, the format is not readable by the PS3. In this case, you should convert to something that is supported.

Make it to stand-by, turn off the i/o switch in the back for 5 seconds, and turned it back on and boot. This may solve the problem. It seem liks a software related issue.May be a new firmware update can totally getrid of the issue..
