Freezing, and screen has weird bright-coloured patterns.

Help! My PS3 just started locking up, and flickering weird patterns in bright colours across the screen. It's almost like it's overheating, but I have it out on the top of the entertainment unit.

    Thanks, I'll try that. If leaving it helps, then I will probably buy one of those auxiallary fans that attach to the PS3 to pull heat out of it.

Try letting it rest, PS3's do not all cool depending on where they are. some have a cooling fan, but others dont. if you let it rest for a day it may stop.

I HAVE A MATSUI 28WN20 CRT TELEVISION AND ITS COLOUR HAS TURNED REALLY WEIRD. FOR EXAMPLE BLOOD SPLATTER COMES UP AS GREEN AND ALL THE REST OF THE COLOURS YOU SEE ARE ONLY PURPLE AND GREEN .


Hi, this sounds like your TV needs De-Gaussing, the screen has become magnetised and the electrons being fired at the screen are being diverted or scattered and mixed to the area's that are magnetised creating the odd colours, what you need is a de-gaussing coil, you can wave this in a pattern to de-magnetise the screen thus allowing the electrons to flow properly to the screen, it may also be the PTC on the tv's PCB near the mains input, if this is faulty the tv's own degaussing coil may not operate properly, you local TV technician maybe able to help with this as the part is specific to the TV, they maybe able to degauss it too for a small fee.

Here's a better expaliation ---> CLICK HERE <---- it shows a circular pattern here but there are many kinds of pattern magnetism can create but the colours are nearly always the same just in different places witn different strengths.

Hope this helps.

Try turning colour correction OFF. (button in up position). See what affect the iris control has. This control will changed the color of the slide from deep red at nearly closed to washed-out blue and white. at full open. I adjust the controls for each slide. The color temperature of the 8549 lamp varies with the brightness. lower level warmer, higher cooler.

Plasma Problem


It could be the Logic board or/and one of the Logic Scan board failure. Parts availability depends on maker and may cost any where between $250 - $500. Labour depends on shop. Hope that'll help you. Good luck.
