Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
When watching cable tv and hdmi cord is connected i seee the lines. when i take out the hdmi cord the lines disappear. i only see the lines when trying nto watch cable tv. everything else works perfect. any help?
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.

Press and hold the power button until
the systems shuts off. (wait 2 seconds)
Press and hold the power button again
until you here 3 beeps. Let go. Make sure that you are switching your
TV from HDMI to AV and vice versa.
It should ask you to connect your
controller via usb and press the PS button in
the middle of your controller. There
will be a menu with 6 options.
If you are able to get the AV cables to work with this method, try setting your HDMI up as you did before.
If you cannot get HDMI to work, then your output has gone out. You must use the AV/Component cables.
If you get no display at all but the system appears to be responding normally (outside of the display) then:
You have what is commonly known as the
"Green light of Death."
It is when your system powers on and acts normally but no display. Your GPU (graphics chip) has cracked or become damaged and will need to be sent in to SONY. You can try a 3rd party technician, but this repair has a very very low success rate.
