Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

3 Answers

I have the same problem with my Samsung LE46A656 A1F Full HD

The problem get worst with the new PS3 "slim". I changed the "phat" model with the newest one yesterday, having the flickering problem for the first 5 minutes of working of the console. After this time the problem seems to disappear, but I haven't yet used the console for long time, so i can't assure that. Should I change the console?

I just bought A PS3 Slim, I have the same TV, got the same problem when conecting it up with a Philips HDMI cable. Started with the PS3 picture flickering at the bottom of the screen, then stoped working altogether.

Solution, switched the Sky HDMI cable with the Philips one, it worked a treat. was definatly the HDMI cable.

It could as well be your tv you never know, i would suggest you try changing the console first. Try the phat ps3 or another slim, if the problem is still there then it may be your tv.

Hi,

If it was doing it on your old console then its the TV not the PS3.

Causes: HDMI cable (Replace cable), HDMI socket on TV (Get it repaired), If it happens on all HDMI inputs then the video board maybe faulty, Interference - location of PS3 to other equipment.

The first thing to do is move everything else away from your TV except for the PS3, now factory reset the Samsung TV and make sure your firmware is up to date my records show that an update came out in May for your TV, also factory reset the PS3 and setup the HDMI video settings using the wizrad in the PS3, now connect the PS3 through all HDMI inputs to see if its one input or all, if all inputs are the same then the TV maybe faulty.

Let me know how you get on.

Thanks

Hey My Jvc tv has 2 HDMI input but when i plug in my ps3 slim into the hdmi input 1 no picture is shown can u please help me


hi,
is ur tv is a full HD one. because the ps3's HDMI out is a full HD 1080p video. did u get the video on HDMI 2. if it is there, then check the connection u made to HDMI 1. if u didn't get video on both then u should down scale the video setting of ur ps3 to 1080i( if ur tv is not a full hd one). also check through component video input.
ok

Are the old PS3 and the new PS3 sim disk drives interchangeable?


It depends on the model of the system some are only going to work with 40gb version and others work with more than one. Looking online myself I really only see businesses selling individual slim optical lens like here.

have yet to see a full bluray drive for sale but would probably cost a boat load.

Will the psp slim battery will work for the psp phat.


Here is some advice for using the Slim-Style Pandora battery on the Phat PSP:

"Actually, I've messed with the slim Pandora in the Phat PSP's. You don't need to trim anything, just slide the head first into the battery slot and you will have to hold it in while its installing.

Also, if you are trying to use a slim Pandora battery, you will need to plug the Phat PSP into the AC adapter for it to work. The slim battery will not boot the Phat PSP on its own."

This advice is from this thread.

Want to download full content of fat ps3 onto new ps3 slim but have to trade in old machine for new one so cannot directly download to new machine. Any suggestions?


Take out the HD of fat, use a adapter to get the info from your HD onto your laptop. Put the HD back in.

Trade in your ps3, take out the HD, put the files you want back into the HD. Put the HD back in the slim.
