We just purchased the PS3 and are getting interference through the audio and video. There is humming/buzzing in the audio and horizontal lines going in an upward direction. We tried different outlets, cables, moving the unit, tried unplugging our surround sound from the TV, and it still does it.
It does it no matter what is put into the PS3. Our TV is 2 years old. Any suggestions?
Try an HDTV. If you only have a standard TV, try a different one. I had the same problem and then bought a 1080p 16:9 aspect ratio HDTV and everything cleared up completely (sound and video). Update the ps3 to version 2.2 as well (just came out last night). Good luck!!

In all honesty, I've never had a problem like this solved by plugging my console directly into my moden. Most likely, this is just a compatibility issue caused by interference with the PS3 Network and your Internet Service Provider. My recommendation is that you call your ISP and ask them what they can to about the situation, they are the key to your problems. hope this helped!
Cables are sometimes expensive for a reason: They offer more or less sheilding from grounds of various sources, including your own body.
Whatever cables you are using are allowing a 60 Hz hum to interfere with your enjoyment of your unit.
Since the cables have to be in close proximity with both your body and the back of the unit, which emits a 60Hz signal, from your house wiring, which becomes the humming noise you experience, the AV cables should be heavily sheilded so as to protect the signal from your MP3 player from interference by the 60Hz signal to increase the signal to noise ratio and thereby reduce your hum.
So, shop for the cables with the least loss and the highest signal to noise ratio. And enjoy!
THe only thing i can tell you is that its called THE RED SCREEN OF DEATH......
and it has something to do with audio output options and if you play with the setting you might get it back to normal......
I have the same problem. My router is located about 1.5 feets from the PS3 and when I turn on the console my wireless network barely works. Something I did was change the frequency of the wireless. It was working in channel 9 and now it's on channel 3 with no problem.
1-HDMI is available in several versions. The PLAYSTATION 3 is
compatible with HDMI version 1.3 or higher, which will take full
advantage of Blu-ray Disc™ high-definition video. There are also "Type
A" and "Type B" connectors. The PLAYSTATION 3 uses the 19-pin Type A
connector, which will allow resolutions up to 1080p. The HDMI cable
is not included with the PLAYSTATION 3. If you are using an HDMI to DVI
converter, you may wish to remove this adaptor.
2- The resolution output (i.e., picture quality) of the PLAYSTATION 3 will depend on three factors: The type of cable used and the inputs available on the TV or display monitor. The
maximum resolution the TV or display monitor can support. The
PLAYSTATION 3 can output two types of resolution: HD and SD. Refer to
the TV or display monitor's owner's manual to check which video modes
are supported. The maximum resolution programmed into the source
material (movie or game). Refer to the software packaging for
information on maximum resolution details or contact the publisher
3- Try connecting with the supplied AV Cable
instead of the HDMI to see if you can get a successful installation.
This will help determine where the problem may be with your particular
HMDI setup and/or equipment.
4- Disconnect any coaxial cables
at the point closest to the television. Signals sent through coaxial
cables may cause interference with the sound and picture outputted from
the PLAYSTATION 3 which results in buzzing and humming noises from your
display and speakers.
Generally, hum is a by-product of interference between the AC power cord and wires carrying the signal. Try and arrange the power cord to be perpendicular to the input wire. If that does NOT work, I doubt a surge suppressor has anything to do with the issue. But try that first.
Also, have you installed a surge protector? If not, then maybe you could think about installing one.
Hope this helps
