Question about Video Game Consoles & Games

1 Answer

For over a year my ps3 has developed an odd problem, it was intermittent for a while then just kept reappearing it is this - short vertical lines appear at the bottom of the screen when a game loads or a game loads from the hard drive - this doesn't happen with blue ray dvd - we reset the whole system which seemed to do the trick but now it's permanent - the ps3 has never been moved unless with great care and is situated in an open position - it's almost like something is interfering with it - mine is the 80g version but, bought a year after launch. help

Hi,

Welcome to Fixya. This seem to be an issue with one of the electronic components on the main board for the video section. A bad resistors, leaky/swollen capacitors, bad ICs, etc. This is like a problem with laptops that usually have streak lines, vertical or horizontal lines due to usage. If you can check the warranty of your ps3 and see if you can still send it to repair for free then it is better. This is a problem with the hardware. Ps3 also have a built in video card and if it gets faulty or defective you will have lines or sometime no display on your TV. If warranty is already expired then the option here is to bring it to a Sony Service Center to check what part is faulty and to be replaced.

If you have question please let me know. Thanks for using Fixya.

Shortly after the warranty was up the first vertical yellow line appeared and now, about 1 months later another vertical line appeared. He's not happy to hear it only gets worse and apple won't do anything...


Although its possible for graphics processor failures to cause vertical lines, they more often create horizontal ones. The first culprit to check for a vertical line problem is the LVDS cable, which it turns out is not that expensive a part (not counting all the work there is in getting to it). To verify this, I would gently flex the cable while the iMac is open and operating, and see if the lines get better or worse. It may also be that the cable itself is fine and just a few of the connector pins at either end are intermittent, in which case it just needs reseating.
