    I am having the same issue. This just started about a week ago and after we switched to using an hdmi cable. At first it only blanked out once every hour or so, but the blank outs are becoming much more frequent (which scares me as I have a good old 60GB PS3 and want to keep it that way). The blank outs only happen when using a disc — aka PS3 game or blu-ray movie (haven't tries PS2 games or DVD yet), and I have no problems with downloaded content.

When I switch my tv to the HDMI input it appears to be normal for a few seconds but the screen stays black and I get a thin pink line running horizontally across the bottom right corner of the screen then...


You did not mention what you are connecting with HDMI but I have had problems with my PS3 and it is copy protection related. On a PS3, you have to connect it to HDMI1 otherwise some BlurRay movies will not play.
You might have a bad HDMI cable. I have heard the quality of cable does not matter these days but I still have had issues with the really cheap cables. I still do not buy the really expensive HDMI cables though.

This sounds like a problem with the hardware inside of your ps3. You may have to take it back to where you purchased it.

My PS3 doesn't read disks that i insert!


It needs a new laser because the old one is "burnt out". It's a really common problem with them.

You could replace the laser or the entire Bluray drive.

I buy my parts at http://parts.consolerepairguy.com - the laser are about $75 each and Bluray drives are about $95.

In your caseme, best bet might be to get the whole drive.

I run a repair business and that place has best prices aside from Hong Kong which I don't trust.

Check the bottom of the disk for a clean surface, make sure you have updated your PS3 to the current version 2.60 (1/24/2009), and make sure the PS3 can still read other disks (dvd, cd, other game)

My ps3 will blink the tv screen on and of


Mine does something similar, just for not as long. On mine it's because the resolution of the display is changing. As far as I know, this is normal behavior. Have fun, the PS3 is a great system!

Flashes a black screen while playing a ps3 game.


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.
