Unwanted lines in the video picture.

I recently purchased a Sony Playstation 3 and everything works fine but I have lines popping up at random during movie playback. These aren't solid lines but darker color tone lines that appear in and out during the movie. You can see through them and they vary in width and duration.

How do you have your PS3 hooked up? and what kind of tv is it hooked up to? do you have this problem durig game play? it sounds like to me that you have a bad connection somewhere your best bet would be to go to your local electronics store that has PS3 and ask them for the best connection wires that they have for the PS3. if you are hooked up to a HDTV that has HDMI connection that is your best bet, but if you are hooked up to a SDTV then i really dont know what the best wires to use are, but any good electronics store would be able to tell you. I would say go to a gamestop or EBgames if you have one, they can help you. good luck!!

Everything boots up fine, but there's no picture

try restarting your ps3, it could be in the wrong mode for your TV, if you have recently used a analog cable and now are using hdmi or vice versa.
Shut down your PS3 then restart by pressing and holding the power button.
