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.

Doesnt show up on the television. It does turn on. turned playstation on and off, tried different connections, still nothing


It is likely that the problem is your AV cable. This cable has one plug that connects to your Playstation 3 and a red plug, a white plug, and a yellow plug that connects to your television. Follow these steps to get your PS3 up and running again
  1. Unplug your AV cable from your PS3 and T.V.
  2. Plug in your AV cable to your PS3 and T.V.
When plugging your AV cable back into the T.V. make sure that the red plug is in the red socket, the yellow plug is in the yellow socket and the white plug is in the white socket.
If problems persist try using a different AV cable.

I recently moved house and have connected my ps3 80gb to a TV not previously used to connect the ps3 to. When I switch on the ps3 all I get apart from the Sony log on tune is multi coloured vertical wavy...


It sounds like the PS3 is sending a signal that the television isn't 100% compatible with. I'd start by plugging the PS3 in using standard RCA jacks, and making sure that the video and audio configuration settings are all set to automatic. Then, plug back in using the HD cords that you have, and the PS3 should reconfigure its signal output to match what the TV can handle.

Making a buzzing sound, and displaying horizontal lines


Contact Sony and tell them the problem. As long has youve had the playstation3 for under one year and have not touched the warranty seal at the side of the playstation then you can have your old playstation3 replaced.

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.
