How to get around Feedback?

Just got a PS3. Every once in a while, especially when I put a BlueRay video in, my TV's speakers give out feedback. Calling the otherwise useless support line, I learned that the Coaxial cable from my cable box causes the feedback with the PS3. How can I get around this? Will HDMI cables work? Please don't tell me to unplug my cable. I'll sooner return the system then be forced to be inconvenienced like that.

HDMI cables will fix that. the feedback is because your playing a high res video on a low res tv (im just assuming you dont have a 1080ip TV) i had the same problem for a while until i got a 1080ip. you shouldnt have to unplug the cable.

I have sony bravia KDL-40BX420 TV ,purchased 03 years back.recently got a problem with pictures & colour.It shows pictures with shadow & colours are blured.please give your feedback

I would check the menu settings and reset everything to default. if there are calibration tests in the menu, use them. Try more than one source for video.

Controller giving feedback?

If you are not using a microphone, then you are not the feedback source.
That being said, a blue-tooth headset still qualifies as a microphone, and is capable of generating feedback.

If using blue-tooth, then switch to a standard wired headset to determine if the feedback diminishes.

Regardless of headset type, be sure to have game chatter through the headset only setting as opposed to through the TV speakers, and keep the TV turned down. There will be an obvious lag between TV speaker and headset microphone which can create a feedback loop.

If other gamers can hear your TV when you are talking, then the TV output is too loud and will create feedback opportunities.

If none of the above applies, then the feedback is generated elsewhere.

Hope this helps!

DENNON AVR-2016 - can't seem to turn it on - it turns off after a few seconds. Help!

Check the speaker wires at both ends for possible shorts. One tiny strand of copper is enough to do it, and set off the amp protection circuit.
If there are no problems with the speaker wires, also check your RCA plugs for a loose or shorted connection. (Turn down the receiver volume to about -30dB or lower before the amp clicks on when checking.)
Is the signal distorted before it cuts out? Another possibility is a feedback loop, in which you have a source (especially a TV) that is both receiving and supplying a signal to the receiver without going through a tape-loop circuit like VCR1, etc. For example, if you connect the output from the TV to "TV" and also have a DVD player running through the receiver *to* the TV, you'll get a feedback loop which will overload the receiver and may trigger the protection circuit.

Ps3 not loadin jst sayin on the start up page

This could be due to a faulty blueray drive most of these give out, Specially the first generations thus it will cost $150 to put a new one in.

Other reasons being the drive could be dirty you can purchase a cleaning kit for it and try running that.

But most likely its the drive.

It seems I keep getting feedback from my was working fine for one day and the next is just started to give feed this a blown speaker problem?

try hooking up a good speaker then if there is no feedback then it was the others, if feedback occurs with the good speaker it would most likly be the receiver or the speaker teriminal, like a stran of wire touchin from the positive to the negetive,

Speaker feedback

I have the same as yours, my solution I placed the speaker with controls closest to the CPU, just less than 10 inches away and the excess wires "especially the Input line" is rolled up and wrapped it with a foil, "the silver wrapper"... So far I have filtered the noise that interferes with my listening...

I hope it works on your system... Mine is Creative SBS20... What's yours anyway?

Some kind of feedback


I suspect that what you are referring to as "feedback or "low hum" is actually 60cycles AC hum coming from the mains. Though this is fairly common, it is quite challenging to figure out corrective actions since you have to do trial & error to determine which of your cables/devices combination would start the hum.

In some instances, this could be corrected by inserting the AC plug of the device the other way around to the mains outlet (if the prongs would allow it). Further, a filtered powerstrip instead of the wall outlet would probably also help.

Hope that this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things worked out or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
