I just put a game in my PS3 console and it started to load and then the screen started going weird. Parts of it kept going black and white with a checkerboard pattern and it got worse and started taking up more of my screen and it was jumping around. It also flickered a few times and I think at one point it may have been lines. Either way I quit the game and once I'd done that all was fine again.
I think it was crackling or making some noise while going funny, but I'm not sure as I was more concerned with quitting the game to try and stop it as it was really bad.
The other day I went to play a game and had to do an update. Near the end I started to get flickering colours and lines all over the place, jumping around, but it continued updating/installing. Once the game had actually loaded it was perfectly fine.
My PS3 has buzzed a bit sometimes but only recently. I've also had a problem where it just refused to display anything to start with and then eventually decided it was all plugged in fine and could work.
The TV is one I've had since the start of this year so still fairly new and it's worked fine up until now. The PS3 is a slim model that I've had a few years now.
It's happened on two games, one of which I've played before with no problems. I think the other one was one I hadn't yet played.
I have changed the HDMI cable, but both cables I have work perfectly fine with my Xbox 360 so I'd guess it's not the cable that's faulty.
Everything is plugged in fine and I have played it inbetween (for hours) with no problems at all.
What is likely to be the problem?
