    PS3 LCD 1080P FLICKER PROBLEMS ?

    hi just thought i would start a thread on this topic as i have this problem and after looking on the net so do a lot of other people is any one out ther ehaving this problem? after getting my new 1080p lcd,mine is 32lg7000 i seem to get a lot of screen flickering when playing games when i have 1080p selected as resolution,mirrors edge flickering on loading screens and blurring during fast gameplay,far cry 2 terrible flickering on cutscenes,i have unselected 1080p and 1080i and just have 720p selected which seems to help the problem i dont seem to be having as much flickering now but it it annoying changing between 720 p and 1080p for cod 5 say which can handle 1080p according to box,i have tried various hdmi cables and eben a hdmi v.1.3 cable as this tv apparently supports hdmi 1.3, after looking on net its not just lg alot of sony,samsung panasonic have this problem with ps3 aswell when outputing 1080p,would be intesting to know if anyone has a solution or is suffering the same thanks

    LOL looks like your comment "£137 is pretty expensive for a door stop" on … LOL looks like your comment "£137 is pretty expensive for a door stop" on the 360 deal has backfired eh, my 360 doorstop runs 1080p perfectly shame the same can't be said on your "£300 very expensive George Foreman toaster". (Not even on a Sony TV now that's bad).....




    Lol. How long you been waitin ;-)

    To op my 42"" is a Sharp XD1E and I have not noticed what you describe on my ps3 @1080p maybe look at the options in ps3 as they added loads to set up HDTV, colorspace, RGB profiles (they will use correct terms in system settings), maybe you altered one to the detriment of the TV keep plodding thru settings on TV as well till it stops, update ps3 firmware as well (you prob have the latest but just check as lots of options fixes in updates)

    if you using 100hz switch it off?

    straight horizontal lines (that look like the screen is splitting is to do with vertical sync, unfortunatly there is nothing you can do about this.

    thanks i tried a few things best thing seemed to be doing a soft reset on ps3 and letting it find the settings itself again,its improved it a lot strange that i get it on sum games far cry mirrors edge,but others like fifa 09 gta whawk run perfectly

    icannot find a setting to turn off 100hz i can find setting to turn off blueray 24p? which i have ?i thought the problem was fixed but it hasnt farcry2 is awfull,soon as i sprint the screen flickers then goes really dark until i stop running,dont knw if i shud take my lg back to currys im still within the 28 days refund but doubt it they wil refund me, but they did advertise the tv as 100hz when it is 50hz

    its not the tv dude, try the ps3 on a normal tv, or setting it at 720p or 480p

    ive tried every resolution setting alone withthe other sunchecked ie just 720p checked it doesnt seem to make a difference i know my tv has hdmi 1.3 if that makes any difference?,cod 5 looks awesome in 1080p a sit handles 108op but the 720p games flicker even though i uncheck 108op and 1080i

    are you sure you have a proper v1.3 hdmi lead?

    try a different cable.

    thing is i have 2 weeks left on my 28 day refund so i dont know wheteher to take it back now to currys says they will give a refund if it develops a fault but i know what most shops r like they wil try to offer me areplacement or something

    do not waste money on an expensive hdmi cable 99 p ones are exactly the same as long as the end that plugs in ps3 and TV is tight and proper size.

    Can you not take your ps3 to another HDTV and try that way see what it is like then you can see if it is ps3 or TV
