I had the same problem after loading the latest patch and I resolved the problem.
The ps3 would turn on and just sit at the wavy line.
I initially installed the latest patch directly on the ps3 through it's internet connection. To fix it I had to download it and copy it to a sd memory card (camera memory) and insert that into the sd memory slot on the ps3.
Follow this procedure for proper setup of the update file.

Here is what i did to fix it.
-hold down the power button for 2 separate beeps. It will turn on then off. Take finger off button.
-after it powers off (light red) press the power again and hold until you hear a single beep (or 2) then a double beep. After the double beep stop pressing the button. (it took me a couple of tries to get to this point.)
-This will bring you to a menu
-Select install update option
-insert the sd memory card or usb memory card/stick.
-the ps3 will find the update and reinstall.
-let the install finish and let it reboot on it's own.

This worked for me. Hope it works for you.

My ps3 wont turn on


Alright you need to put your ps3 in what is called "safe mode". First make sure there is no disc in the ps3, then turn off the ps3 in the back(main power switch), turn that switch back on, then hold the power button in front until you hear a total of 3 beeps, then let go, the light will be red, hold the power button again and you will hear 2 beep then a quick double beep, let go of power button and the light should stay green. A menu will appear, try all option working your way up from option 1 until it works. If you go through all 6 option and you are still having issues call 1-800-345-7669 to have your ps3 serviced

sometimes wavey lines can come from your cable or satelite connections because the wrong size cable was used or there is just a bad connection in the cable somewhere..

Wavey lines


Sounds like your set has dried caps in the Power Supply, take it to a decent tech, its not something you should try to do yourself as dangerous voltages can still be present evn if the set is unplugged.

Lg 37 inch lcd has a dark shadow vertical line down left side of screen about 1cm wide and does not seem to go right to the top or bottom and is slightly wavey


reseat the LVDS cable inside the set. this is the multi wired connector that connects the main board to the panel. if that doesn;t solve your problem replace the main board. if you turn off the set and you can still see it in the screen it is the panel.
