Ok, you need to do the following :

Turn the PS3 off into standby (red light on)

Press and hold the power button. It will beep when you first press it, beep again 5 seconds. Release the power button when you hear this second beep.

The PS3 will start up and reset the display

Make sure you do this with the HDMI cable connected.

Hope this helps

PS3 start-up. ''Invalid Format'' presented on screen. Can hear sound but no picture. TV is LG Plasma Model # 60PY3D


turn off the ps3. when you turn it back on by the console hold the button down until you hear a beep, keep holding it down until you hear a second beep, this will reset the format back to normal, if you have hdmi or anything else you can change it then from your video settings menu.

Zenith Z42P3 "Invalid Format" message from upconverter DVD


Ran into the same problem with this DVD player and my LG tv. Try this:
Open the DVD tray, with the DVD tray open press the HDMI select button until the proper resolution for your tv is illuminated, put the DVD back in, close the tray and try again. Simple fix -- worked beautifully for me.

Good luck
