Making a buzzing sound, and displaying horizontal lines

I’ve had my PS3 for less than a year and all of a sudden my system started making a buzzing sound, and displaying horizontal lines that scroll vertically up my screen. Should I return my PS3 to Sony or is there something I can do to fix this problem?

Contact Sony and tell them the problem. As long has youve had the playstation3 for under one year and have not touched the warranty seal at the side of the playstation then you can have your old playstation3 replaced.

Horizontal stripes & a buzzing screen


When it does this, can you press on the back of the screen and get any change? If so, then you have a loose screen connection. If not, then you most likely have a bad or failing screen that will eventually go out completely. The thing is, if it's a failing screen, it may last years, or it may go out the next time you turn it on. You can never tell with them. I'm betting on a loose connection.

Interference audio and on-screen


Try an HDTV. If you only have a standard TV, try a different one. I had the same problem and then bought a 1080p 16:9 aspect ratio HDTV and everything cleared up completely (sound and video). Update the ps3 to version 2.2 as well (just came out last night). Good luck!!

Polaroid lcd hdtv 27" buzzzz


thre are several components that can make a buzzing sound, especially a bad power component or capacitor. check the capacitors to make sure they are installed in the board correctly. the stripe on the cap must line up with the white mark on the board under it. remove the back panel lay the tv down on a blanket turn it on and see if you can isolate the noise component by ear up close. and visually check for swollen capacitors the top will be pushed up round if bad if good it will be flat on top. warning if tv is less than a year old make the place you bought it replace it. so you dont void the warranty.
