Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
I have a 60gb ps3 that i bought in july of 2007. While I am playing certain games, spikes and lines appear out of objects and characters on the screen. It is hard to describe. This is a minor problom in some games, but in others, the entire screen is almost completely filled with these anomalies. The games that give me this problem are: Rainbow 6 Vegas 2, Ghost Recon 2, Resident Evil 5 (the demo), Far Cry 2, Prince of Persia, BioShock, The Darkness, Fallout 3, and a few more that I can't remember. Any help you can give would be much appreciated.
Thanks for listening,
This looks like its a problem with you graphics chip inside the ps3, first thing i would do is ring sony and see if you can have it fixed for free, if not try and clean up the fans inside the ps3 if they are inbeded with dust this will cause the ps3 graphics chip to over heat which would also give you this same problem, there are many videos on you tube to remove dust and open console but before you try this make sure you cant get it done for free because once the console has been opened u lose any warranty on that console, if dust is not causing it to over heat i would look into getting if fixed or replaced as the graphic chip canot be repaired if damaged as its attached to the main mother board and this means the whole board will need replacing
hope this helps a little you can find details of sony ps3 on there web site
