I have a Pioneer PDP-R05FE 43'' TV. When I connect my PS3 to show Blue Ray films I get a flicker in the picture. It is connected using a good quality HDMI cable. There is no flicker when playing SD films...


go into your dispay menu and adjust the response 50-60hrz or if your tv is capped at 1080i then drop the ps3 to 720p and that will smooth it out alittle too as the interlaced picture is alittle choppy apposed to progressive picures and finally sometimes they just do it no rhyme or reason to it so dont go crazy about this ok :)

I have playstation 3 and when i turn the main power on ,then it loads the ps3 logo with sound ,but just after that only some almost blue screen is on backround and some white wavy mooving line or...


It sounds like the system software has become corrupted. If you dont mind losing your save games and all other data you could try a PS3 full restore. Turn the PS3 onto standby (red light on). Press and hold the power button until it turns itself back off. Press and hold the power button again until you hear 2 quick beeps together then let go. The PS3 will boot into the recovery menu. Choose option 5 "Restore PS3 system". Let it do its thing and hopefully that will solve your startup problem.

Hope this helps

if the problem persists outside of the ps3, i'd say its time for a new tv. however if it doesnt you can try checking your video plug and make sure its still securely in there

PS3 Flickers on and off on the screen


Is could be your TV and not the PS3. When the resolution of the screen changes, you TV will flicker to adjust to the new resolution. My TV flickers in a similar way when playing games of lower resolution than my HDTV.

NO output either HD or normal tvs (not on/off botton hold prob)


Hi, The fact that you are getting a load icon when you put a disc in makes me think you have corrupted system files. If you have a spare 2.5 SATA drive you could put it into the PS3 and let it auto-format it, see if that gets the menu back for you. If it does then your current drive probably needs to be reformatted on a PC and then re-inserted into your PS3.
You'll lose your save games (unlesss you can back the drive up on the PC).

you already have a corrupted hard disk.the best possible solution for that is to replace it with a new hard disk.corrupted hard disk causes the ps3 to freeze bcoz it cannot the load the data that the ps3 needs to boot properly.hope this one solves the problem

PS3 - Screen Flicker


You need to try a new HDMI cable.. Cheap HDMI cables do that? I had the same thing happen to me... I switched the HDMI cable and it fixed mine.
