He's right, it is a line, but it's not a big problem. If you keep playing with that wire, eventually that yellow part in your PS will come loose. It took me about 10 min. to fix mine with the same problem, and all I needed was a small philips screwdriver and a soldering iron. I bought my soldering iron for about $16 at Lowe's and it comes with batteries and soldering. First, you need to open your PS: you flip it over, pop those little square plastic covers out (only 6 of them). I used my finger nail to pop them out; now, you'll notice that there's a total of 8 of those square-type things, don't worry about the ones in front corners (right underneath Controller Port 1 and Remote Controller Receiver). Once you do all these you'll find 6 screws, so use your screwdriver to get'em out. Flip your PS over again. Now you'll be able to pop the top cover out, just be careful, it's a little tricky but you'll make it. With the cover out of the way, you can see now the inside of your PS. Try to locate a screw between the two Controller Ports, it'll need to come out. Once you get that screw out of your way, remove the bottom cover carefully; make sure you remove that board thing where the Reset/Power button lays from the cover as well. Now you have a naked PS haha. Flip your PS over locate where the power cable is plugged in (it's like a yellow square-thing). Looking at it from the bottom, try to put some presure on it with your finger and try to move just a little bit and you'll notice that one of the solderings holding the yellow thing together to the green board is cracked loose (if not both). So now it's time to get that soldering iron to work. If I recall, it'll take about 30 to 45 sec. for soldering iron to get to it's working temperature. Once it's ready to work put presure again with your finger to that yellow part and try to solder bond that cracked soldering back together. I did it by heating the soldering touching the green board so it'd hold the yellow part in place. I'm sure you'll do good, just be pacient. Use your finger again to try moving it. Once it doesn't move anymore IT'S DONE. Just get those covers back together, first the bottom one, then the screw between the Controller Ports, and last the top cover with the 6 screws and covers. Hopefully this will work for you as it worked for me.

Clean the LAsers Lens with Q-tip lightly dampened with Glass cleaner, then dry the lens. Try it see if that gets it going again.
If not your lasers lens and supporting frame is probably melting down. You will need a new laser.
Click on "repair directory" at the bottom of this screen. Then click on "Video Game consoles" Pick a good repair shop.

The cable isprobably faulty or damaged. Try replacing it with another one. The socket on the back marked network is a ethernet port which allows players to connect to the PSN or Playstation Network allowing you to game other people around the world with supported games
