Question about Video Game Consoles & Games
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.
