Question about Sony PlayStation 3 40GB System
It appears that when I play at PS3 game, my TV screen flashes for a little while and then stops. In other words, the screen will get brighter or very drak for a few seconds and then revert back to the normal color/brightness. It will only do it for the first 10 to 20 min. while playing, then it will stop. The game never stops and there is no problem with game play. It is almost as if I am turn up the brightness or tint for a few seconds and then returning it back to normal. Is it my TV or the PS3? If it is the PS3, I have about 5 more months on the warranty, so I will need to know.
Thanks for the assistance and I hope I gave you enough to go on. Maybe it is getting dusty or something like that. I have the PS3 stored in a TV stand that is enclosed with my DVD player and CD player.
As always, I suggest you get some canned air and blast it out from the front and sides. Just use the air holes that are on the machine. That way all of the dust build up can exit in the back. Also, check all your cables and revert back to your manual. Something on your TV stand may be interfering. If all else fails, then call Sony and get a box sent to pick up your PS3. I'm seriously out of ideas on this one. I hope this helps!! Good luck.
