Ps3 Slim HDMI Port loose- flickers/loses signal

15 replies 5158 views Edited Jan 23, 2010
I just used two different HDMi cables..and I realized that a slight touch to the hdmi cable causes loss in signal...is the hdmi port on the ps3 slim this sensitive? I was wondering if this is normal..If I just wiggle it a little bit, the signal gets interfered to my tv. I know its not my hdmi cables because one is old and one is new..and both did it with the wiggle.

I just returned my 250GB PS3 Slim because of HDMI issues. I would randomly see either grey colored static or green colored static on the screen. It would usually only happen for a split second. At times when it occured, the sound would go out and once, it even shut my HDTV off. Weird stuff.

 

BTW, my HDTV Dish receiver/360 Elite are both connected via HDMI and I've had 0 problems.

I've been wondering about this Bravia Sync thingy..  implemented from System Software 3.0.  It incorporates the CEC data path built into all HDMI cable but only optionally use.  Short pin 13 and no serial bus for talk, or to test if the System Software is messin with sasquatch, (figure of speach) ;P

 

 

 

 

Don't do it!  

 

 

OP, sorry for the delay. yes just use a jewlers flat head screwdriver and lift thoes two lil' feet up.

Can you take a macro picture?

 

Can you take your system back to the retailer?

 

I'm so sorry for your trouble..
