Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
With the PS3 connected via hdmi to my 58"lcd, there is a buzzing sound and a slow rolling shadow going up the screen. The shadow takes about 5 seconds to go up the screen and is only a little darker, but noticable. It happens whenever the ps3 is connected, even if it is turned off with the back power button. Is it the tv, console, or hdmi cable?
Sounds like your HDMI cable is crappy.......if its aftermarket, make sure its a good quality......you can check the resistance of the cable with a multi-meter in the "ohms" mode. The cable package should have the ohms value on it, if the cable is out or range, thats your problem.......

Press and hold the power button until
the systems shuts off. (wait 2 seconds)
Press and hold the power button again
until you here 3 beeps. Let go.
If you have a HDMI cable, plug it up,
if you have AV plug it in as well. If you have both settings on your
TV, be sure to have them both inserted into the system. Also, make
sure that you are switching your TV from HDMI to AV and vice versa.
It should ask you to connect your
controller via usb and press the PS button in
the middle of your controller. There
will be a menu with 6 options. Try 2-5.
At times, it's the cables, at times it's the actual motherboard.. At times, it is the TV.
You have your work cut out for tonight.
Good luck and feel free to post with new questions.
