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!!

This is a nice speaker. You could get humming from the wires being crossed they actually do have polarity and better speakers will hum if the wires are crossed. The volume cloud also be too high without input. You also may have some interference with other audio wires or power wires close to the speaker.
Your Plasma's native resolution is 720P. Go into the Blu Ray's output setup. you can choose 480p 480i 720p 1080i and 1080p. Set it for 720p that should clear up the issue.You may have to run Component directly to the TV since you only have 1 HDMI input and you can run Digital coax or optical to your AV receiver for audio. On a 50" TV the difference between 720p and 1080p using "GOOD" cables cannot be seen by the human eye. Above 50, yes it is noticeable.
Hope this helps.
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......
It is a grounding issue with the turntable most likely. Some turntables came with a ground wire that you attached to the receiver. You can also try a power strip that has a line filter incorporated to get rid of the hum. Check the local stereo shoppe to see if they carry them. You may also want to replace the audio cable that connects the turntable to the amp with a good quality shielded cable. If it has bad shielding it will pick up electrical interference and even radio interference as well. Turntable inputs on receivers have a preamp built in and the gain for each type of pickup is different. The pickup is either ceramic or magnetic and if I remember correctly, the ceramic pickup needed more gain than the magnetic one. The preamp will definitely make a ground hum a lot more audible.
