Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

Flickering problems Hi, I bought a Playstation 3 about 2 weeks ago, and everything was fine. But now when I turn it on, the screen starts shaking and flickering 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?

Just bought a ps3 two weeks ago. Played games just fine and everything worked well. We watched a movie last night. Turned off the system and went to bed. The next morning we tried turning it on but it...


This may be a simple fix. Do you still have the original cable that came with it for the video OUT? Plug this back into your playstation and TV while leaving the HDMI cable connected.
check now both HDMI channels and AV/Composite options on your source selection this should give you the display,
Now what we need to do is setup your HDMI output again.
From the menu bar,
  • Go to settings
  • Display Settings
  • Video output settings
  • choose HDMI
if you have the choice to choose OK choose it. If your screen goes blank go through your HDMI channels again and if the Playstation screen is there then select OK,
Then you can remove the composite cable again

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.

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.
