If your PS3 has been restored and the green power light is staying on after you turn it on it could possi bly be the video resolution. If you have been using the PS3 on HDMI you may need to reset it back to standard definition. Do this by holding down the power button for 5 seconds. If that doesnt help try going into the restore menu and "Restore PS£ system" again. If that fails too, download the latest PS3 update and put it onto a USB stick. Using the PS3's recovery menu again, select System update. It will then continue to update from the USB stick. I really hope this helps you out.

Bulb does not do anything but project white light. Wavy lines are a digital board problem. You should have a tech look at it.

Iphone...cydia...won't turn on/off


You will have to restore in iTunes. Charge your phone and hook it up with itunes open, if itunes doesn't see it then hold homescreen and power together for 6 seconds and release the power but hold homescreen until itunes see's the phone then restore it.sometimes you get lucky and the phone starts when itunes sees it. If not restoring should get you going.

PS3 Freezes On The Wavy Lines


I had the same problem.

Whilst the machine is turned on, plug in the usb to the wireless controller and the PS3 should detect it and ask you to press the ps button (center of controller). Do this and you should get a menu, select RESTORE FACTORY SETTINGS, and you will have to input time, date etc but it does get machine working again - previous data is lost and you may need to keep trying as machine took several attempts to detect wireless controller - just persevere!!! I tried pressing buttons etc, switching off but nothing else worked for me ... Hope this helps

Wavy lines, goes black during video games.


It sounds to me like the monitor's refresh rate is too low to support your current settings, and the demands of the game. Have you tried adjusting the refresh rate? If I'm right, you should be able to fix the wavy lines that way. I'm not sure how much control over the refresh rate the game takes, but if you can fix the wavy lines and the game still doesn't work, I think you're not likely to get the game to work on this monitor.

I would suspect defective filter capacitors in the sweep circuits as well as the power supply source voltages.
