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.

T-Con board is not usually the cause of a vertical line on the screen. It is the screen itself. Do not swap the cables. They are right and left only. If you do.... you will burn a trace on the cable and trash the T-con board.

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

Single green line spanning across the screen horizontally

I was just watching TV and all of a sudden the screen minimized down to a single green line spanning across the screen horizontally. The label in the back says it was made in 1996 so it is an old tv. Can anyone help?

Convergence issue

try fixing the convergence 2 after your've aligned the convergence 1 - the second (accessed via the set up control) let's you adjust on 9 different axis to align the red and blue tubes to the green. you select which + sign you want to adust by pressing the corresponding number for the + ie 1 for the top left, and 9 for the lower right corner.

good luck (note - you cant change the green only the red and blue, if the whole edge is a mess try moving the image (you need to be in zoom mode, and then access the position adjustment via the pitcure set up screen.

Philips plasma tv. has green line on left side of screen.

Using your TV's remote control press the right cursor button three times and it will adjust the Screen to the right and the green line will disappear. Use the left button if your green line is on the left.

Green line down left side and geen snow

Horizontal or vertical bars on the screen could be from an ac line interference, adjacent magnetic field, bad input wire connections.....especially HDMI connector cables. A bad HDMI cable causes all kinds of unwanted picture interference. Check the conditon of all connection wires for proper fit and function. Keep in mind the method in which you connect your tv will result how the tv performs. As well this line problem could be a circuit issue too, requiring a technician to look at it.
