Hi, I'm new here, I have a 60gb version of the ps3, and last night i was hooking up my new home theater system. anyways, I had to do some re-wiring, my ps3 used to be hooked up to my sony 32" tv (model #: KV-32HS-420) via hdmi cable. Thing is,my tv only has 1 hdmi port, so i had to re-wire my new reciever for my new surround sound system & my ps3, i had to hook up my new reciever via hdmi, then re-wire my ps3 via component cables. I have my ps3 broadcasting in 1080i and 720p, and eversince i rewired my ps3 via component cables i now have a horizontal line wiggling up my tv screen from bottom to top. i know all the wires are tight, i can't seem to find the problem. Somebody please help! it's really annoying. Thanks!
PS: if anybody who read this knows of a digital converter box that supports 5.1 surround sound (in other words, where the audio will come out of all of my new speakers) that would be great. I would prefer it would have a component connection, not hdmi, it should also be able to support HD. THanks again

Your console is going into protection mode to protect the from being damaged.
First thing do is check the ventilation, make sure the fans are running, make sure you have min of 1 foot around the PS3.
If all is ok, with the PS3 in stand by mode Press and hold the power button for 5 secs.. until you hear the second beep this cause the PS3 to reset.
If you have the 60GB version then you might have a faulty power supply which was a known issue on these 60GB versions, if you have contact Sony and plead for a console repair free of charge, other than that they might do a repair but it will cost approx £145 in the UK.
Not all PS3s are able to play PS2 games - they started removing that functionality when they came out with the 60GB model. So if you have a relatively new PS3 (A year old or so), that's likely the reason.
well it could be the resolution of your tv if your or a damage cable that is causing the problem what you can do is to hook up the ps3 to you tv with the regular cables A/V components(red, white and yellow) and try to play a game or demo, if you could see the picture then is the cable or the display settings. you can also try to check different display settings. for example if you use 1080p change it to 720p and try it to see if it works. also try changing the input to a different input on your tv if you're using HDMI 1 change it to HDMI2. and viseversa
As of yet, i havent heard of any way to do this. The 60gb and 80gb versions have a different chipset that allows backward compatibility game play. The 40gb version does not have that chipset. Although you never know, one day they might come out with a software "emulator" to play the older games on these consoles.
