When am playing a game on my playstaion3 there is like little lines comeing down the screen this dont happen all the time but happens now and then whats wrong is it my laser


Ether there is a problem with the TV/Device that you are plugging into or the issue is with the PS3's video out put.

I would try connecting it to another TV to see if you have any same problem. Also I would try the other out put. So if you are using the AV out try the HDMI because the problem my just be with the connector.

Let me know if you have any more questions

My playstaion3 turns on but all i get is a black screen. Everything is connected...the remote wont even turn the system on. If it does turn on the screen is messed up and it freezes.

Ok first of all take out the Hard drive (under a cover on the bottom of the PS3) and reinsert it. Then connect the remote with the USB cable and when asked press the PS button. If it still doesn't work you are going to have to download the newest PS firmware from the PS website, put it on a flash disk (memory stick), put it in the PS3 and follow the instructions on PS's site to update the firmware.

I get an error message everytime I try to load my season.

it might be the motor on your xbox 360 laser some games require the motor to spin faster during certian parts of certian games i have also noticed that sometimes the magnet that sits on top of the laser weakens causing the same problems because the motor relies on the magnet to be able to hold the game disk to the cerface of the motor as the game disk is spining

Games freeze, no red lights

There are really only 2 options when looking at this type of error. It is either:
1. A bad Disk
2. An internal problem with the system

A bad disk (or multiple disks) will occur when they become scratched, dirty, or destroyed. The best option here is to clean the disks with a non-abrasive cleaner and hope that it solves the problem. A good test is to try a brand new disk to see if the problem goes away.

An internal problem is very hard to nail down. Freezing can be caused by a number of factors but it is almost always associated with an overheating situation. It is important to make sure that the XBOX has plenty of room and ventilation around it. In fact, the worst thing that a user can do is to place the console inside an entertainment center nook and close the door. It is recommended that the console sit outside of the entrainment center and away from heat sources. There are a number of add on components that you could buy to increase the airflow into the console as well.

If this is an XBOX 360, also consider that the hard drive may be going bad. The best way to test this is to get your hands on another hard drive that you know works and test it in your console. If the problem resolves then the issue is related to the hard drive.
