Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
When playing a DVD or BlueRay DVD the color randomly darkens/dulls and then after about 30 seconds goes back to the correct bright colors. it was working well for about 2 years. All the electronics are the same. 50 inch panasonic plasma (720p 1020i); Denon receiver, Direct TV, Componet cables (connections are secure). I've changed a bunch of "visual" settings on the PS3 and on the TV but...no luck. I even reset the PS3 to the original settings and downloaded the latest updates. Any detailed fixes would be appreciated! Thanks!
If I had to guess I would say its the back light on the TV dying, pay close attention to if it is doing at other times and not just during DVD / Blue ray usage. If it is just during the DVD/ Blue ray usage then it could be either the Blueray drive, the video cable going bad, or the video card in the PS3 going bad.
See if your PS3 is still under warrenty if it turns out to be the PS3.
If this still doesn't help your problem, please leave additional comments and I'll see what I can do.
