It may be a ground loop caused by cable televisoin and the Ps3, as PS3 uses a 3 prong plug. Try unplugging the ps3 power cord and see if the lines go away. If they do, it is a ground problem...usually with cable tv. If this is the case, try a good quality power bar with cable suppression jacks on it. It will help eliminate the ground loop in most caese.

Try the following:
Reconnect your console and TV:
  1. Remove any devices placed between the console and the TV.
  2. Connect the HDMI cable from the back of your console directly into the HDMI port on your HDTV or monitor.
  3. If you're using an audio-only A/V cable, unplug this cable and then connect the HDMI cable from the back of the console directly into the HDMI port on your HDTV or monitor.Learn more about connecting your console to a TV.
Note If your HDTV has an image-enhancement feature or any kind of digital noise-reduction feature, turn this feature off. See your HDTV user manual for instructions.

Lg TV picture is purple when trying to hook it up


It could be anything. Have you tried checking that you have everything properly connected; I.e. sometimes you might have connected something wrong. Or make sure that both devices are compatible with each other. Or maybe you're just using the wrong cable/cord for the job.

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.

Purple and Green hum bars?


You could have a drain on your AC (120) causing the hum bars in your set . Best thing to try is to reduce what you have plugged into your 120v outlet . One of your unit could have a capacitor going bad in its power supply causing the hum bars . Even if it is not turned on. Try one unit at a time . if you find out it one of your units they make what is called a line conditioner which filters out these hum bars . Good luck
