Re: Green Line

It may be a video setting in the PS3 is not matching the TV. Try this. Turn off your PS3. Then, press the 1/0 button for more than 5 seconds. This should reset your video settings.

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

I am trying to download some pictures to my ps3. The ps3 shows there is a flash card device connected but when i go to download the pictures the ps3 says there are no images to download.

Okay, there are two things you need in this order.
On your PS3 desktop there are catagories, MUSIC, PHOTO, VIDEO and so on. The point I am making is.....If you wish to view a PHOTO you must be in the PHOTO column. If you need to watch a VIDEO you need to be in the VIDEO column and so on. Anyway, once you have obtained to the correct column, move up or down to the flash card device and "Press the Green Triangle" on your PS3 controller. This brings up a couple of options on the right hand side on the screen, generally "Display All" and "Information". Choose "Display All" by pressing the Blue Cross on your PS3 Controller and you should be able to now view your contents. Also if required, follow the same process once on the actual PICTURE/VIDEO, etc. to download from the external hard drive to your PS3 if you wish.

Ds lite flashes on but fuses are ok

One or both your screens have blown.

Try removing the motherboard from the screens and attach the battery the green light should turn on and stay on.

Now attach the lower screen and turn on. If the screen is ok the screen and green light will flash and then turn off. (if the screen doesn't flash the bottom screen is you're problem and will have to be replaced)

If this happens the problem is then you're top screen which you will have to replace.

Playing blue ray

my solution would be to restore the playstion 3 to default settings unless you have files on your ps3 that you do not want to delete forever.
