White flashes when movies play

When we play DVD's on our playstation 3, a white flash will shoot across the screen periodically. Sometimes it is worse than other times. At first we thought it might be just blu-ray movies, but now we see it on all our movies. Any suggestions?

SOURCE: PS3 laser Problem

It sounds like you bought a defective laser or it is the chip on your "sister board". There is a chip on the circuit board thats on the bottom of the Blu-Ray drive and it has a silver rectangle on it. Some say that that chip is going bad on some machines. I have repaird 60+ PS3's this year and I haven't had this happen to me yet though. I would suggest trying another laser, then if that doesn't work try a "sister board" from the same model of PS3. I'm still not possitive if that is a possible solution though. The "sister board" is supposedly keyed to only work with the mother board it came with. Well, I hope this helps. Good luck!!

SOURCE: will playstation 3 play blu ray movies off usb

the PlayStation 3 can read just about any usb memory stick and play can movies from them, since a usb's bandwidth is significantly lower then the ps3 hard drive it's recommend to copy the movie to the ps3's hard drive.

also it matters how the movie was converted. some converted movies wont play on the ps3 no matter what codec your using to encode the movie with.

Most likely you have a faulty connection. Try wiggling the wire. If it effects the image, replace it.
