Maybe the HDMI cable is broken or even worst the HDMI port on either the tv or PS3. Hopefully you can mess around with the settings on the PS3 and it'll fix it.

Looks like the colour depth isnt set properly and it's adding a gradient. Make sure you use full range colour mode on the ps3 and there is also an option in there specifically for colour banding issues. Test a few of the ps3 video settings out.

Or try some of the color/display settings on the PS3 or TV

I would really try switching out the HDMI cable, especially given that other devices work fine, and that the component cable works fine, as well.  If it persists, definitely call Support.  I hope your issue gets resolved quickly.
