Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

Screen flickering and shaking

Hi,
I bought a Playstation 3 in January, and everything was fine. But now when I turn it on, the screen starts shaking and flickering and stops only when I am asked by the console to answer a "yes or no" question to proceed, or whenever I get something like a title page, or a piracy notice on a DVD. Movies and games will flicker and shake, then stop, then flicker and shake again. Even the introduction screen whenever I turn it on flickers and shakes. I even tried to changing the cables, but no luck. I also tried to reset the system to defaults, and that did not work either. Any suggestions?

Thanks for your solutions, but I just figured it out. I went back into the resolution settings for the PS3, and reset it to the settings of my TV (checked off the 1080, 720, 480, and NTSC resolutions), and lo and behold, picture is solid. 
Seems the settings were knocked off (maybe by a power outage or something), and so I just needed to reset it. This note is for just in case someone else may have this problem.
thanks to all

Well it might be becuase your ps3 is european. Im no expert on the matter, but when i bought an hdmi cable and hooked it up to my hd compatible tv, i switched to the hd input (which happened to be input4 on my tv) and a message popped up saying that the ps3 has detected hd output, would you like to change settings? and it did it automatically after i hit yes.

PS3 - Screen Flicker


You need to try a new HDMI cable.. Cheap HDMI cables do that? I had the same thing happen to me... I switched the HDMI cable and it fixed mine.
