Only When I Play PS3 There Are Weird Lights On The Screen, Please Help

7 replies 103 views Edited May 5, 2013

Ok, so when I turn on my PS3, there are waves of rainbow light, although its faint. As I play it gets really distracting. I've had this ps3 for 3 years now and this is the first time it happens. I really want to know how to stop it, its extremely annoying. I couldn't find anything about it anywhere else, so hopefully I can find help here. Thanks

Where does the rainbow light come from?

Any annoying sources of light can be attenuated by electrical tape.

A picture would help here.

Does this happen on other TVs? Different cables? Also, are you on HDTV or Standard? What cables?

Okay, so I went to go take a pic for you guys, and then I realized, it all started happening when I plugged back in the old VCR. I tried to plug it out and it was fixed! Thanks guys :smileyhappy:
