During game play the game will freeze, and thin red lines will appear horizontal across the entire screen? Please help


This could be a problem with either the actual game, or the console itself. To check, try to play other games on your video game console, if the games freeze, then it is a problem with the console. If it is only the one game freezing, then it is most likely a problem with that specific game.

Hi,
Would like to tell you that there is nothing wrong with your PS3, but it's the T.V that is causing the problem.

Unfortuntely, the only thing that will cause a thin line or two is the lcd panel assembly. The cost to replace this would be really high so the best you can do is put up with it as long as you can, then replace the set.

Apologies on the bad news but i must be honest with you. I have seen this with all makes of both lcd and plasma tv's

Make sure you are using the correct cable. If you are using a HDTV make sure you are using a official HDMI cable. If you are using RGB/SCART, make sure you TV is compatible.

XB360 Screen colour changes and then disappears


Could possible be your television.

Or maybe your Xbox is overheating.

Try placing your Xbox in a cool spot, direct a fan at it, etc.

Or try getting a new TV or Xbox.

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.

No picture on 360 with white dotted lines.


Make sure that the video connection is properly connected to the TV.. (yellow to yellow) or if using Red Green Blue, make sure colours are connected to the right ports on back of TV)

Also, if you have the option, make sure either HDTV or Normal TV is selected on the back of the connector to the Xbox (IE, if you do not have an HDTV, select normal cable).

im having the same problem to fix it i unhook my cable box (the video cables and the hdmi inputs to the tv) this stops the lines--try just the ps3 hooked to the tv and no other devices this should solve the problem--must be getting interference from some device

Vertical blue line in display PS3


Alright, I do believe i have a solution. But i need to know the brand of TV you own, how old it is, and If your using an adapter, or the regular "Yellow, Red and White" cords.
