    I have the same problem with mine. Sometimes it causes the same problem when the cords are plugged in and on normal tv.

    Did you solve the problem with yours?

The problem is that my tv cable is not properly grounded which causes the the humming sound. I just unhook my cable when I start to play.

Slow moving lines up screen


I noticed the same lines on my 32" Sylvania LCD. After playing with some electrical plugs, I found that having my Sony PS3 plugged in interfered with my cable quality. When I unplugged the PS3, the lines and slight humming (only noticeable from behind TV) went away. I tried making sure the cable line and PS3 power cord weren't touching but to no avail. I guess I'll just leave in unplugged while watching TV.

this is normally caused by voltage on the coaxial cable which simply can be solve by a surge protector with a cable in and out.. but this is just a way to passify the issue. More than likely there is a bad ground either in your house or on the comcast line

Background noise


Check the cables in the back If i remember the Component Red jack is right next to the audio out jacks (also a red jack) if the audio cable is hooked up to the component jacks this will cause a humming static noise

Lag between ps2, ps3 and LCD TV.


2 questions:
Are you using HDMI cable?
Have you tried your ps3 in any other HDTV?

Heres why I ask you this. PS3 has some compatibility issues with some TVs (or Tvs have it with ps3....that is controversial xD) so if you happen to be so unlucky to have bought an HDTV which ps3 has issues with, you`ll have a problem (as was my case)

In my case whenever I switch resolutions or enter a game the HDTV starts flashing between the ps3 screen and some blank screen with dots. I have to remove the hdmi cable and connect it again and it solves. :D

So please answer my 2 questions in order to discard some possibilities.
