Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
I also get the flicker problem when I put it in 1080P mode on the PS3 for my 32LG70 TV.
However, depending on the HDMI cable I use, the problem is either severe or minor.
I tried 3 different of the following HDMI cables:
The cable linked above makes the screen and sound flicker to the point where it is unplayable.
The cable linked below works pretty well except there is sort of minor static in on the screen. You can see single pixels that looks like static spread out on the screen. It is hardly noticeable unless the screen is black.
I also tried 2 different of the following HDMI cables:
I'm pretty sure it isn't the TV as 1080P works well on other devices.
I'm leaning towards either I need specific HDMI cable or the PS3 just doesn't work well with this TV in 1080P until a firmware update.
This may help... open Display settings, scroll down to the Deep Color option... switch it from automatic to off. So far this is the only solution that I have found

I have had this same problem, bringing my PS3 over to a friend's house it will flicker about every 5 minutes but at my house it is absolutely fine. We have not found a solution. I would suggest making sure all of your inputs are cleaned, I'm sure your cables are clean because they're new. There may be some dust in the PS3's HDMI Port.
If all else fails, use a component cable (red/blue/green/white/yellow). Component cables can play games at 1080p and blu-ray at 1080i.
You should not need a specific HDMI cable. Flickering is typically the result of interference or disconnection.
