While i'm on a game, the screen will flash black every so often during gameplay, I know the ps3 is ok cause i just installed the TV a week ago.

It sounds as if the set is losing & recovering sync; these are the signals that tell the set when to start painting a line of horizontal and a frame of vertical. Try to catch the thing doing this while holding the cable from your game system to the TV and whether moving/flexing the cable causes it to go to black or return from it.

Screen flashing back and freezing during games


If your PS3 is freezing up then this happens in much the same way as the 3 red lights on the Xbox 360.

The GPU and the CPU heat up and you need to stop the heat to fix it.

You can send it in and pay $130 to get it fixed or you can use the recommended PS3 Repair guide that will have it fixed for you in under an hour!

Screen freezes


its broke. take back to store. likely issue with graphic processor overheated one too many times. PS3's are best run in small cramped wooden enclosures that dont allow air in. err no thats not right.... that kills them.

My ps3 after in hour of playing freezes and won't play


This is a common problem that can be one or two reasons. One is that your PS3 is overheating during gameplay and is shutting down or freezing. If this is the case you should make sure your ps3 is clean of dust and is in a well insulated area. Try investing in an external fan that will keep your system cool during gameplay.

Secondly you may have a problem with the laser reader. If this is the case you will need to have it repaired by sony. You may be covered under a warranty, so please contact sony to find out your options.

You can contact sony by calling the number listed on the back of almost all of your video game booklets.

Happy Gaming and Good luck to you.

PS3 flashes white snow for only 1-2 sec. during gameplay. Is there a fix?


I also have the same problem. Just bought my PS3 today and have found that it flashes to static for a few milliseconds at any given time. I know it isn't my TV and I also know that there is nothing wrong with the console. I put it down to the HDMI cable - I chose an exceedingly long one that spans 5 meters. Personally, I think that the output voltages from the PS3's HDMI jack are lower than those found on other devices - so I presume that long cables with high resistances (in other words, cables that are fairly long and very cheap) are the cause of signal loss. Try a shorter, higher quality cable. I am going to return the one that I bought and buy a shorter one tommorow.
