Question about Video Game Consoles & Games
I may be wrong but have seen this once---using a power supply for this unit to run on?

My ps3 also does the same, Try safe mode it refused.
When am playing a game lines appear on the screen even when i just start it after a while it freezes not allowing me to turn it off, i have to unplug it.

a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
the service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of (from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones).
click here to download the app (for users in the US for now) and get all the help you need.

Turn off the PS3 with the switch on the back, then turn back on. wait till the light is solid red then hold your finger on the start button for abount 10 seconds until you hear it beep twice.
It will then ask you to connect a controller via the usb cable and press the PS button. Once you do this it will bring up the reset menu.
Unfortunately the only way I found that solves this is a full system restore that wipes the hard drive completely.
You do however retain and data saved online such as COD stats etc and playstation store purchases with your PSN.
Hope this helps??

Hmm. I'm not quite sure exactly what the problem is, but if your playstation doesn't turn at all when you flip the back switch it means your harddrive is probably fried.
