Alright, so I do not know much about plasma tvs and gaming consoles. I have gone into best buy multiple times for this problem and they cannot figure out the problem. I have a brand new Panasonic ST30 (plasma-3D) and I have plugged my PS3 in as an HDMI component. I have the most recent software on the ps3 and the ST30. I am using the Monster - 1000HDX cable and once I turn my PS3 on, it has a blinking effect on the screen. It looks like the pixels are lighting up and it happens randomly. It will do this at the main menu as well as in a game, so I know it is not the game. The screen will also glitch out and flash randomly as well. Sometimes when I turn the ps3 off and restart it, it will be fine and then randomly start flashing again. I recently took my PS3 into best buy and hooked it up to the st30 in the store and it did the same things. I then plugged it into the s30, another samsung plasma, a led-lcd dynex model all with no problems. Therefore, it is narrowed down to the problem being the st30 series. I also hooked up a basic dynex hdmi cable to my st30 and have not noticed any problems. Therefore, I have narrowed the problem down to the Monster - 1000HDX cable and the st30 not being able to communicate properly and causing a certain issue with this setup. We also hooked a blu ray player up to the st30 in the best buy store with no problems. If anyone has any expertise in this area, please help. I hope it is an easy setting fix or the fact the Monsters 1000HDX cable tries to amplify the signal and that causes a problem. I apologize if I am using terms wrong and would appreciate help from anyone.
