Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
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.

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.
