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.
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
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.
Okay the Ps3 has some problems with the 3 colour plug Red white and yellow the plug that connects from the tv to the Ps3 is the problem you should try to fix that plug it makes the screen go black rite?? so its that plug cuz i got that problem and its REALLY tiring going up to it and fixing it.
Click the Thanks Button please :D
I tried to help atleast
yes unfortunately i think its been dropped by the sounds of things,and yes it can be repaired,you can purchase a screen off ebay thier not that expensive,if you know anybody thats electricly minded if so let me know and i'll send you the webpage that shows you how to do it step by step.dont send it away to be mended what ever you do because it'll cost more to repair than its worth.
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
