Hi, the problem you are having is due to it over heating so do the following.
1, unplug all leads
2, clean all the air vents.
3, make sure your ps3 is not being used on carpet or on top of anything like dvd or sky box.
then give it another try
if after doing the above it still dont solve the problem then the chances are you need some work doing to solve the problem.
its not a job you can do yourself as it requires reflowing of the gpu and cpu chip so you will need to shop around and see what price you can get.
i charge 25 pound plus parts for this repair so shop around and see what offer you can get

let me know if you need further assistance ok

plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks

Make sure you are using the correct cable. If you are using a HDTV make sure you are using a official HDMI cable. If you are using RGB/SCART, make sure you TV is compatible.

Lines covering over my games,game is working uder lines


Sounds like your GPU is about to go, What will probably happen soon is when you turn on your xbox you will get sound but no picture. Either send it in when it inevitably happens or try the x-clamp or hot air gun fix if out of warranty.

Graphics get squarish


Sounds like your GPU is cooked. The Graphics Processing Unit on the PS3 has started tohave issues with overheating. If your PS3 is still under warranty, go to http:www.us.playstation.com and go to the service link. There you will find the info you need to have your unitfixed. I have had to have mine serviced twice. From the day I sent it to them, it was less than ten days when they returned it. Be sure to take screenshots of the graphics problems you are having. If you do not, chances are all they will do is clean the unit, nd add cooling grease to the GPU and cell broadband engine This will help for a few days. But if the GPU is cooked, it will revert to the graphic "glitches" in a few days after service. Heat is the number one enemy of all electronics. Be sure and turn your PS3 off when not in use. Even if it is in "pause" mode, or just on the dashboard it is still causing wear and tear n the unit. Some games will still work fine with a bad GPU. But graphics intense games like Bad Company that run between 60-120fps cause alot of stress on the gpu. Good luck, and Happy Gaming!
