Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

Screen has has horizontal white lines and a loud buzz with ps3.

When the ps3 it plugged into the television using the rca plugs, there  is a loud buzz and horizontal white lines that slowly move up the screen. the problem happens whether or not the system is turned off at the back, in standby, on the home screen and during game play. two days ago i was playing on a high def sony using an hdmi cable and there was no problem. ive plugged it into several televisions using the rca cables and the problem is the exact same. the system functions 100% normal besides this. please help im desperate.

It could be that your rca cables are damaged, you can try using different ones, or it could be that you have a setting to use rca cables turned off in your settings of the ps3.

Just got this tv from friend. has no remote. screen is black. sound is good. when you push menu button, white line goes across horizontally the screen.


The horizontal line indicates the vertical deflection circuit is not working. Either the set is stuck in service mode for adjusting color (turns off vertical), or the deflection circuit has failed.

Some RCA TV sets have a "Service" switch in the back, down near the bottom of the set. Most of the newer sets use a combination of remote control and front panel buttons to get into service mode, and that can be turned off by unplugging the set and plugging it back in. Try looking for the mechanically operated service switch in the back first.

My RCA console tv has white horizontal lines accross screen, picture is very light and sound is ok, very frustrating. I know its an old tv, but appreciate any response. Thanks


Cold solder joints on the flyback transformer circuit board - probably because RCA used feed-thru steel rivets on their boards. Re-solder the connections using a good solder flux for clean solder joints and this will fix prob. The joints with the dull, pitted finish are the problem joints.

Slow moving lines up screen


I noticed the same lines on my 32" Sylvania LCD. After playing with some electrical plugs, I found that having my Sony PS3 plugged in interfered with my cable quality. When I unplugged the PS3, the lines and slight humming (only noticeable from behind TV) went away. I tried making sure the cable line and PS3 power cord weren't touching but to no avail. I guess I'll just leave in unplugged while watching TV.

Lines on the screen


Try holding the power button on the ps3 for about 10seconds. It should beep as it normally would turning on, carry on holding the button until it restarts. This should restart the ps3 in standard mode so that it can be viewed via rca/scart connection.
