PS3 unit has fuses that probably failed. I wouldn't void the warrenty to try and change them yourself but this would be the place to start if you take it in for repair.

The PS3's plug outlet could be a little beaten up. check that.

How can I change source resolution?

The source resolution is determined by your choice of connected video device. For example; If you are using the RCA jack cord that comes with every PS3, then your resolution will be very low, and you can't change it. If you are using the HDMI connection to a HD TV, then the system automatically selects the correct resolution ratio for the TV. (720-1080p) Also note, that going between watching a video, or blueray movie, and a game, most games have the ability to change the resolution automatically as well. An example of this, is watching NETFLIX. The system can detect 720p, then you begin to play a game (COD AW) it detects and changes to 1080p.

Sound issues when connected to PS3 with HDMI

I don't think you can hook a PS3 to 350W projector. You are maxing out the PS3 output. Good luck with it

One way is to go into Settings - Security Settings - BD/DVD Parental Control Region Code and set the code (US=region 1) As far as blue ray, you may have to "jailbreak" the PS3.

I put a movie on my playstation pirrana 3D watched it in 2D and now when I try to play a game or watch a movie it comes up with a warning saying things like you my experience discomfort whilst watching 3d...

If you can see the screen for the PS3 dashboard before playing the game I would suggest trying to reset all your video display settings on the PS3 first then try it again. If you changed any settings on your tv try setting them to defaults. The PS3 system has an auto video adjustment system built into it and sometimes it has a brain fart and gets locked up on a specific setting and doesn't want to change back by itself. One way to try for resetting the video settings on the system is turning off the power switch on the back of the system with it on instead of the regular power button on the front.
Good Luck and Happy Gaming!
