Okay i have a PS3 flickering at startup with all the menu and stuff. At first it was flicker and than flicker... there would be a couple seconds between flickers. Tried changing HDMIs and that never worked. But than Bam... It was REALLY bad nonstop flickering everywhere. it wasn't just flickering... it was everywhere. words all messed up.
The Entire time with all this the only fix was Starting it up (without remote) and holding down to reset it... would fix it. But unlike many who it seemed to fix it for good... Every startup back to same problem. So only way to stop flickering is hold it down to reset it for every startup. So I thought maybe if i went to settings and restored everything back to default... maybe thats the answer?
Nope... now its back to the original flickering every few seconds. Its so odd.... Resetting works shows the cables & hardware don't appear to be the problem. It seems like the only answer must be in the settings... but restore to default settings should have solved that right?
LoL I have no idea what to do now. Any suggestions?? Appreciate any help!
First of all have you try it on other TV as I do no see it in your story this would exclude TV or console !! , have you try different cable bit long shot but worth try ? Have you try to switch on console in safe mode and see if it's flickering , Is your console PAL and TV PAL , or they are mixed PAL and NTSC ?
1: What PS3 do you have fat-slim,Model?
2: Are you on OFW-CFW-DEX? and what version?
3: Have you tried a component cable?
4: Try to clean the HDMI area on PS3 with alcohol with Q-tips?
5: Have you tried setting the video to different modes?
