Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

My PS 3 has intermittent static when playing games. it is as if there is electrical static on the TV screen. It used to do this before and I contacted sony and they told me steps to do to reset the system or something but I forget what they said to do any ideas? Previously I changed the HDMI cables but this did not make a difference whatever the problem was it resolved when I went through previous steps suggested by tech support

It sounds like they told you to reset your video settings, here are the steps to do so again:
Make sure the system is off. Hold down the Power Button for 5-6 seconds - until you hear the second beep. That's it, your video settings are reset and you should be able to choose your input and configure it from there.

I am having issues with my RCA Scenium D52W135D (playstation 3 connection). Recently, I have been having a very specific problem with this combo. I have it connected using HDMI to a Pioneer receiver...


Had the same problem. With mine the other day you probably moved your Playstation 3 too another tv and set your 1080i,720,480 to high deaf on settings in Playstation. You have to change them back to automatic that TV says HDTV but it only plays Playstation 3 on 480 checked in settings of Playstation. Played mine for 4 years on that TV moved and got a 3d wifi then dad got him one And was going to trash that RCA but I told him I would take it for now too keep from buying another TV at this time got it in my new home wouldn't play video but it. would sound tried different cables but still now change. But remembered i changed all of my settings over when I got 3D TV. Playstation 3 hadn't been on know other TV. Since I owned it but that RCA now won't work then came to me last night and playing it on both TVs but you have to change the settings on it before moving it or you cant see the screen to fix it do that guarantee it will fix it. Like you said everything else works PS 1,PS 2,DVD, cable,but PS 3 won't its the settings in theme,and audio.

Static on main screen not during game play


try to use your PS3 using a different TV- ask a neighbor or something. This will isolate the problem. If the problem occurs on a different TV. the problem is with your PS3. have it RMAed

I want to know if there is a way i can play the P.S. 3 using my laptop as a tv


There isnt really a way unless you have a card in your computer with the component video imputs. laptops arent designed to have the screen work as a tv.

Xbox 360 flickers across screen


it is your av cable however the components in the cable get a small static boost when u are using your controller so it becomes an intermittent fault ie;....when in game vidios or watching dvds, u rarely use the controller so u dont see the flickering and u only see it when in game play because u are in constant contact with the controlls and the components inside the av cable recieve a small static boost causing the interference.
