Resolving Playstation issues with Samsung Tvs- Flickering Pictures

In our earlier post, we talked about the flickering issues experienced with a Samsung TV. We have been able to find a NO TOOL method i.e. no need to unscrew your TV.

To fix this issue follow the instructions below;:

With the TV in standby, press the {INFO} {MENU} {MUTE} {POWER} buttons on the remote (not together but one after the other). Remember to point the remote toward the InfraRed light on the TV.

Once the TV comes back on, you will see the service menu table. Look for Control> Config Option> Spread Spect>Turn It off. (See image below)

Spread Spect

Exit the Service Menu and connect the Playstation to the TV.

You can now enjoy playing your favourite games and HD content without experiencing any flickering.

What does HDMI stands for?

High-Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI) is a conduit through which devices  can transmit and receive high-definition (HD) audio and video between external  sources and receivers. In the past few years, laptop manufacturers now offer their customers the opportunity of  projecting high-quality  video and audio onto HD-capable devices such as televisions and audio receivers via using the laptop’s HDMI port. Once connected properly, it only takes seconds (or pressing a combination of buttons) for you to transform your device into a  powerful multimedia hub.
