There are running line on the screen

Well you I brought a playstation3 and when the game is on there is aline that travels from the top to the bottom. Now we have been playing games on the TV for about two years and have never had this problem before. Everything is connected and you can see the game fine and hear it. I just want to know what to do next.

    I have that same problem. I've only had the thing for less than a year. My brother says it's been doing that line thing since day 1.

    I want to know what it is too! That was the first problem we had with the thing. Now we have another! Grrr

    I also have black lines on my screen when PS3 is connected to the TV. My TV is an older model rear projection TV. Could you clarify what an AV cable set is?



    thanks

There is no way to fix it unless you get a A/V cable set for the PS3. HDMI isnt really a very good video + audio standard. the lines are just extra data that travels throgh the PS3 and ends up on your screen.

I hooked my PS3 to my HDMI cable to get a better visual screen display for my HD movies and games, but display screen went blank and I cant get the commands menu screen, how can I get the menu commands...


You must reset your PS3 in order to accept the new TV configuration.

  • If the video output settings on the PLAYSTATION3 do not match those of the cable or TV in use, there may be no picture. If the screen goes blank, turn off the system.
  • Then, with only the PLAYSTATION3 and the TV connected, touch the system's power button for more than 5 seconds to turn the system back on. The video output settings will automatically be reset to the standard resolution.

  • Hope this helps please remember to rate my response, thanks!

    Making a buzzing sound, and displaying horizontal lines


    Contact Sony and tell them the problem. As long has youve had the playstation3 for under one year and have not touched the warranty seal at the side of the playstation then you can have your old playstation3 replaced.

    Top Screen on DS only shows lines


    I take it the item is a ds Phat??

    Problem is the same if its a Lite just a different part.

    DS Phat - you need the screen cable that runs between the bottom board and the top connsctor board.

    DS Lite, the screen and cable are all in one, so you need a new top screen

    Ds is out of alinement


    Do you mean the touch screen?
    Have you tried the alignment procedure?

    Remove any cartridges and go into the setup by pressing the small icon at the bottom center of the screen when you first turn on the ds.
    Press the yellow square (alignment) and follow the instructions.

    DS Lite's top screen has horizontal black lines


    i found a REALLY easy solution! the most likley problem is that there is dust in the GBA/DS game card slot! it corrupts the connectors (i dont want 2 explain how it gets into the system) so step one: wrap a small peice of tissue around the stylus(make sure DS is turned ON)
    step two: LIGHTLY go inside the GBA/DS slot with the tissue wrapped stylus.
    step three: shut down DS system and turn on again
    problem solved! hope this helps.

    Nintendo DS bottom display screen


    Hi I have a problem with my bottom screen as well. I was replacing the case as the hinge was broken. When i was putting it back together i noticed a slight tear in the ribbon cable which is attached to the board and the bottom screen.
    When I turned it on I found I had poor colour and contrast in the bottom screen however the top screen was fine.
    Where this ribbon cable is attached to the board there is two small cables attached to the board beneath it, maybe one of these has come away and needs repositioning or your bottom screen needs replacing.Try this site for diy tipshttp://site.powergamingparts.com
