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.

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!

Samsung 32 tv doesn't read hdmi cable with the PS3

I have samsung also. You connect your plugs in the back where they go. Go to your settings on your PS3 and make sure that it is 1080p or 720p, whichever your tv is. And your tv will adopt those settings to recieve high definition data from your gaming system. Hope it works for ya! If so, please leave me feedback!

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.

My ps3 wont read any disc

This could be caused by 2 things

1) The laser is dirty,and needs to be cleaned or
2) more than likely the laser has failed and needs to be replaced

Other than that check the spindle motor by putting a cd in the slot and feel the shell for small vibrations,if you can feel it the spindle motor is fine

If this helps,please give me positive feedback

your blueray lens
the ps3 has 2 different lenses in the disk drive 1 is blueray and the other is just a basic dvd cd lens<
your blueray lens will have burned out if your still under warranty you should be fine to call sony and request a free repair if your not under warranty it will cost around £120

hope this helps

A slight feedback noise from speakers while playing playstation 3

probably your wires. any time speakers hum something is not connected properly or there is interference from another gadget nearby. Invest in some better wires and your problem should go away

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.
