You don't. The TV has a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels; so it's already 1080p. The number of pixels can't be changed.
What you're probably getting mixed up with is the TV showing the resolution of the incoming signal when you change channels or go to a different source. Standard definition from cable might be flagged as 480i. DVD might show either as 480i, or 480p, or maybe 720p or 1080i or 1080p if you have a scaling DVD player and set it appropriately. HDTV on cable or satellite will show as 1080i or possibly 720p. Blu-rays and PS3/XBox 360 or PS4/Xbox One should show as 1080p when your TV is connected.
Whatever the source signal resolution, the TV will scale it up to fill the panel area of 1920x1080 pixels. So the TV is always using all the pixels, regardless of the resolution of the source signal.
your dvd is set to 480p. if it is a convertable dvd player set it to 1080i. the tv sets itsef to whatever the dvd player displays. if not all dvd is 480 to 720 p. blu ray will get you top notch 1080 display.
The TV has a automatic scalier chip installed so it depends on the input signal that you are using. For example you are using a HDMI connection with a xbox 360 and you set the display setting to 720P then the TV will display it in 720P. If you set it to 480P then it will display it in 480P.
It may be a synch issue. Make sure your component input is set for the proper type of output. Your XBOX 360 is likely set to 1080i, but your DVD and PS2 are only 480i (or maybe 480p for the DVD if progressive scan).
Sometimes component inputs are 'self adjusting' to the signal, but others require manual setting.
