PS3->LG plasma=invalid format?

Just got a PS3 and tried hooking it up to my LG 720p Plasma thru HDMI. I get sound but no video. The plasma says "invalid format". What am i missing here? BTW if i hook it up to my Panny projector, it works perfect.

have you checked the settings on the PS3??

If I remember right, first time I hooked up my PS3 to my LG I had to use the composite(Y/R/W) connection to do see the menu and make adjustments, then switch to HDMI. It did work though.

It's been awhile so I don't remember the specifics.

Hold your finger down on the power button (not a really button on the fat one but just keep your finger there) until you hear it beep again. So, it should beep once when it turns on, keep holding, then it will beep 2 more times. This resets the video modes and you should be able to get everything setup from the menus.
