Hi there, on the PS3 the easiest way is to actually reset the display and let the PS3 default to its best resolution, normally the highest that your TV is capable of. Please follow these steps to do this -

Turn the PS3 off into standby mode (red light on)

Press and hold the power button on the front. It will beep when you first press it and then beep again 5 seconds later. Let go of the power button when you hear this second beep.

Your display will now reset and automatically use the best one for your television.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa

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: http://manuals.playstation.net/document/en/ps3/3_15/settings/videooutput.html . 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.

Connecting


did you check this out yet? (from the owners manual)

IMPORTANT NOTE: If the AVR's video output resolution

is set higher than the capabilities of the actual connection,

you will not see a picture. If the best available video connection

from the AVR to the TV is composite video, press this button
and change the resolution to 480i.

How do i change from 480i to 1080i on a sharp 52"


You don't. The TV picture will be fuzzy when watching a program in 480. If you have a lot of video in 480 or 720 you can get an up scaler. They are expensive, but that is the only way you'll ever get a Hi def picture from a low resolution signal

Playing on a regular TV.


Ensure you have returned the PS3 video output system setting to 480i vs the 720/1080 setting. Regular TV will give you a black screen at the higher resolutions.

I have a Polaroid DRA-01601A DVD Recorder (w/160gb hd). I am getting a video output on my tv as a black and white split screen. Can you help?


The picture output may be set for other than 480i. Try to connect the composite output, and you may get enough picture to change the setup to 480i.

Ps3


Depending on your television, if it's a tube then your display settings should be at 480i and no higher. Sounds like you set it at 720 or 1080 and your TV can't handle the resolution. You need to go to the PS3 main screen (turn on without game in it) and select the "settings" ( might be called "system settings", 2nd or 3rd icon from the left), a sub menu will show up and look for the 'display settings' heading and change it back to 480i. That should do it. Reset the PS3 just to make sure the new settings take effect.

Cant change my display settings from the 480i input


Whay kind of cable are you hooking it to your TV with...?

The one that comes with the ps3 is only capable of NTSC, or 480. If that is the cable you are trying to use, you will have to get an HDMI cable, or the component cable (the one with 5 rca's plugs, 3 vid 2 audio), as these cables are capable of the full 720 and 1080 resolutions.
