PS3 Flickers on and off on the screen

When on the main menu of the PS3 or while watching a downloaded movie, the image on the TV will flicker on and off. This doesn't happen while playing a downloaded game or a game on a disk.

    So, I decided to look and see if there was a "latest update" available to see if that would help. I was a bit skeptical, based on what was happening, but the upgrade to Firmware 2.80 actually managed to fix the issue. I was able to finish watching my downloaded movie with no more issues, and haven't had the flicker issue since.

    Ok, so oddly enough, that seemed to only work for immediately after I did the patch and while the PS3 was on after that. When I turned the PS3 on this morning after having been off since the update and having watched my movie, it is now having the same problem. So still not sure what to do.

Is could be your TV and not the PS3. When the resolution of the screen changes, you TV will flicker to adjust to the new resolution. My TV flickers in a similar way when playing games of lower resolution than my HDTV.

Sony 52xbr4 screen flickering


Fault with the main power supply regulator board. Ubnormal DC voltage output from it. Check and replace damaged component/s at its main power regulator [SMPS] section circuit. Contact any service technician. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts.

It will be best to replace the power supply regulator board as card basis rather than making "Surgery" to it; which usually will make loss for both money and precious time.
