Call of Duty - Scrambled screen when using red dot or ACOG sites

Hi guys,

I've looked all over, but have found no one else complaining about this problem. I was playing COD4 on a regular CRT tv and was getting scrambled blocks when zooming most sights, even some with iron sights. It is especially bad with the ACOG. I bought a new Samsung 32" at 1360x768 and tried all of the different settings, but still have the same scrambled zoomed weapon sight issue. Any ideas what the problem could be? I'm using HDMI to HDMI and currently have the PS3 set to no higher than 720p. Thanks for any info you can provide.

Regards,

Dave K.

    Thanks Randy. It has done this since it was brand new. I had it hooked up to the original TV with the component cables and it did the same thing. I don't think it's the DVD because it only happens when zooming the weapon sights. I play sniper a lot because it doesn't cause the same distortion. It seems to be prevalent when using the open zoom sights, like the iron sights, to a lesser degree, and the ACOG/Red dot sights. The .50 scope is not affected to any great degree. It also distorts when the final game tally is showing and if I suicide with a grenade (too much cooking:) Anyways, thanks for the input. I'm just surprised I haven't run across anyone else having the same problem.

    Best Regards,

    Dave K.

Do you have any scrambled blocks with any other game?
if not, try cleaning the CoD 4 Disk. wipe from the inside out with a lint-free cloth. do not use a circular motion.

Use the composite connections (Yellow, Red, White) instead of the HDMI.

If that does not work, return the disk to the store.
If you cant, call Activision and tell them that you have a corrupted disk. they should give you instructions on how to send it in.
I had a problem with the disk "dobj for xmodel ‘body-mp-usmc-woodland-assault’ has more than 128 bones (see console for details)". just called them and told me to send them the disk.
2 weeks later, got a ticket to get a new CoD 4 Disk from the store, free.

Red dot


I suspect that your intsructions might help you find out what this red dot indicates. I have had customers send their cameras in for service complaining about a dark rectangle in the lower right hand corner of their Olympus cameras' LCD. Turns out it was the exposure "burst" counter.
