Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
I have an HDTV with 2 HDMI ports. I had my ps3 connected through the first HDMI port and it would skip, the screen would go blank in the middle of the game. Also, during any sort of change in phases (i.e. ejecting a disc manually or starting/stopping a program in game) the screen will go blank and be accompanied by a loud popping of my speakers, like when you pull your finger across the needle of a record player. I can't recreate any of these problems and they aren't regular. I can't pin down what the problem is. I changed to the second hdmi input and the problem stopped for a while, but it seems to be starting up again. Is it a bad signal from the PS3? Is it a bad HDMI cable? Is it the HDMI ports? Please help!
The Hdmi cable is either loose or your ps3 dispay settings are wrong

Note: How to reset video output settings
If you are attempting to change to an HDMI cable from a different video cable or if the video output settings do not match those required for the display in use, the screen may stay black. If the screen stays black for more than 30 seconds, you may need to reset the video output settings of the PS3.
