One possible fix is to put the ps3 into recovery mode and formating the drive. WARNING: YOU WILL LOSE ALL SAVE DATA, MAKE SURE YOU BACK UP YOUR DATA FIRST. A video tutorial can be found here (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yZWye1CLTVo)
If that doesn't wor kthen there is a problem with the GPU (Graphic Processing Unit) possibly caused by overheating. If your ps3 is still under warranty I would suggest sending it to Sony for repairs, if it is not under warranty then it will cost you $150 to send it in for repairs.

    I just bought a new ps3, TV, AV and had the green line problem. After no luck from internet suggested fixes, I was told by a salesperson at Futureshop that their tech guy advised that ps3's just don't seem to like being in HDMI inputs other than the first one. Sure enough, when I plugged it into the first HDMI input in my AV it worked perfectly. The other two inputs work fine for 3D TV and Movies, so perhaps there is something to this. All my gear is under warranty, but this seems to have worked...should I still consider returning it for repairs, or is this just the way it is???

My ps3 will only read one disc i have tryed all my other games and rebuilding the hardrive but no good ?


Try looking at your games and seeing if they are scratched or damaged, and if that isn't the case then it is probably a problem with the ps3 itself. If you can, phone Sony's support line and send in your ps3 if you still have your warranty, and you'll get it fixed for free.

Playstation 3 (PS3) Console: no image on ps3...


First thing you should try is a video reset.

While the PS3 is off (solid red light), hold down the power button until you hear the SECOND beep, QUICKLY release.

My playstation 3 will light up green then yellow


1. Try turning the ps3 on and off and then hitting eject.

2. Do Not try to open up the playstation. You may do more damage than good.

3. Try to halfway insert another game, cd, or dvd into the playstation 3 and press eject.

4. Here's the one that worked for me. I slid another compact disc into the console almost all the way but still holding on to it and pushed up as I pulled the disc back out. To my suprise another disc began to slide out with it. I had no idea how many discs were actually inside the ps3, but when I hit eject the original game that was in there still would not come out, so I new something still wasn't right. I repeated the process a few more times and low and behold, I had a total count of four, aside from the game. At last, eject finally pushed hubby's NBALive out of the playstation.

Ps3 60gb no operating system


First the PS3 doesn't use flash memory, it uses a 2.5in SATA hardrive. It can't be that there is no OS, otherwise the PS3 would write it to the hardrive, it must be corrupted or have some other problem.

I would recommend buying a 2.5in SATA hardrive - they're very cheap. Ask in store for one, or you can get one from Play.com. If that doesn't work, it's a problem with the PS3 itself and you should phone Sony.
