standard tv "resolution" can vary somewhat. It is *analog*, so resolution is somewhat ambiguous in that sense. Roughly, though, 640x480 is approximate... can be higher though, up to 800x600... all approximate numbers mind you..

I think to resolve the issue you need 2 go into you ps3,s SETTINGS DISPLAY SETTINGS VIDEO OUTPUT SETTINGS then select HDMI AUTOMATIC then SAVE this will make the ps3 choose the correct resolution settings itself automatically ,so that you dont have to search for them manually .I hope this has been useful in sorting you,r issue,i may have not xplained it very well but try it iam confident it will work.. let me know if iwas talkin hollocks lol all the best DOAKSTER

Just press and hold the power button until it beeps a second time.
That will reset the video settings.

I can hear the beeps but nothing happens

That link above is an answer to somebody else's question on this issue.... If you follow the directions, I believe they direct you to change to 720p... which is approximate to the resolution of your television...

Hope that helps
