    i recently bought this PS3, but it seems to be causing electric sparks in "AV in" points when it's pluged to the TV and shutsdown the circuit breaker, however when i unplug the AV cable from the TV and plug the PS3 again all works fine, could the problem be in the AV cable or the PS3 or the TV ? i'm really confused about what to do.

    Tricky to follow your notes.

    Which AV points are you connecting to?

    You then say you plug the PS3 back in and all is OK - is that to the same or a different Input on the TV?

    Power - are the TV and PS3 connected to the same power socket?

    PS3 - what is its history and have you checked it's power cable for damage/correct wiring?
