Hi guys I've just switched on my PS3 and I seem to have load of lines going across my screen that looks like interference and when I across the screen they don't seem to clear.

I have switched the HDMI cable to see if it was that and still had the same problem with a different cable and still the same problem...anyone any ideas or do I have a dead machine

Hi, does your TV take 1080p ? Because if someone has selected 1080p then this can cause this. If this is so you will need to connect to TV using the standard video lead to then adjust to the right setting. Also if you have another TV try it with that tomake sure it's the PS3 and if possible try different method of connections to TV. THis should narrow things down a bit.
