Sounds like your GPU is about to go, What will probably happen soon is when you turn on your xbox you will get sound but no picture. Either send it in when it inevitably happens or try the x-clamp or hot air gun fix if out of warranty.

JVC 36" color sterio tv lines on top of screen

does the problem occur while watching dvds. it is possible that it is an issue with your tv but i would try switching off of cable to a game console or dvd before i said for sure it was the tv. you also might try using another port on your tv such as hdmi, s video, rca or componet ports . if any of those ports work i would replace my cable from the cable outlet.

When the ps3 is plugged into the tv the screen will lose its color and go yellow

Try your console on a different atv and if doesn't do it its the TV and if it still does it then do a system restore. NOTE: A system restore will delete all saved game data. I recommend backing up your console onto a usb flash drive.

When i play my xbox white static lines appear on the screen. it does it with all games.

Sounds like a bad connection from your AV cord or possibly a failing input port on your TV.

Try your console on a different TV and see if the problem persists. If it does continue, contact Microsoft and see if this is covered under the 3 year warranty. You could also try a friend's AV cord to see if the lines go away.

Some without colors and other games work perfectly fine

If you are not using hi-def cords or if you've tryed it on multiple TV's, then I would guess it is the video card (so only bad-graphiced games would work). Not sure for ps2, but ps3 video cards can be replaced for around $110.

Genesis model 1, periodic static flashes cover the screen for an instant every 2 seconds or so. In other words, it "blinks" static. Color changes a little at this time too. Games play fine otherwise....

Have you tried a different TV set? this would narrow down your problem to either the TV or the console.
If you think it's the TV try unplugging all other inputs - unplug the aerial, DVD player etc and see if this makes the difference. (don't forget where all the cables go afterwards!)
If you're really stuck but own a computer, you are legally allowed to download an 'emulator' which turns your computer into a Genesis.
Then you can search the internet for 'ROMs'. These are files that the emulator can read like a cartrage.
Note you are only allowed to download ROMs of games you already own. Downloading other ROMs is illegal in most countries. Also be careful for viruses, some of the sites out there are a little dodgy.
I know this doesn't fix your problem but might offer an alternative solution.

Maybe it is your screen, try it on a different tv. And if you want *** to stop freezing don't let it heat up to much and put the big grey electric power box thing on the edge of another box so its area isn't covered as much
