Flashing / Sparkling Pixels


Standard Member
Hi guys,

When I use my PS3 with my LCD TV I get flashing or sparkling pixels. It looks like thousands of pixels turning white and back again all over the screen.

Resetting the video settings on the PS3, or turning the TV off and on again seems to fix it. Unfortunately I don't have another HDMI device to test with.

I've taken a screen shot, not great quality as it's from my phone but it gives an idea. Can anyone suggest what this might be? I'm already on my second PS3 this week as the optical drive failed on my week old slim!

Thanks in advance, Tom.

That could be an HDMI problem. Have you tried another HDMI cable?
