Re: lines going through my tv

1. Do you have a HDTV? 2. Did you change your settings in your PS3's Operating system? 3. What is your hookup? (HDMI, component, other?)

There is no sound coming through my HDMI/DVI cable. is there any other way to get sound?

Try going into the audio setup of your PS3 to make sure you have it set to send audio down the HDMI. The PS3 allows you to send the audio down the HDMI, standard, or optical, but you have to change the settings.

Along the same lines, you can use an optical cable to run it to a receiver (or your tv if it has an optical input). Just remember to change it to the optical output.

I don't have the PS3 in front of me right now, but go to this link and it will explain it to you:

Thanks for reading and good luck.

Please specify if the line appears always in same spot on your display and I may be able to assist. However, please note that if your device is still in warranty it would be very adviceable to send it for a repair because if the problem is related with what I think it does, it will require dissasembling the unit in order to fix it and this will void your warranty. Please reply back with these informations and I will try to troubleshoot this for you.

I have a toshiba 22 inch hd tv, when i go on my ps3 at the start screen there is a thin green line (or different colour line depending on the colour of my theme) down the right hand side of the screen. Any...

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

Ps3 screen scrolling problem



and try changing a few of the DVD options like upscalling, dynamic range control, etc.

You might have to set one of these manually to stop the scrolling.

Let us know if you're successful.

What kind of TV is it? if its an HDTV usually the ps3 just scans that by itself and it will ask you in the beginning before it does anything else. If its just a regular TV make your that the cables are connected on the right place maybe something is wrong with your television. Let me know how it works out.

Purple line

I think that line is from your TV set not the console.

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.

Ps3 freeze

look on Sonys website for patches et,c.
Sometimes they launch games, and realise that theres glitches.
they then create patch-files which you can usually download, to update your console.
if this does,nt work. then you,ve possibly got a faulty game.
Exchange It.
