While playing xbox 360 in 1080p mod, the screen frequently blanks
I have the xbox 360 hooked up to input 1 via component cables and the input and xbox are both set on 1080p. the screen frequently blanks out for a few seconds,(sometimes long enough for the input to have to reset. what could be causing this?

Most TV's have problems doing 1080p over component. Dial the Xbox back to 1080i. Make sure the big switch on the Xbox AV cable is set to 'HDTV' not 'TV'(common problem) If the problem persists, try plugging into different hookups, use HDMI (if your console supports it) or buy one of the HDMI adaptors from PDP or MadCatz if your console doesnt. HDMI will reduce the clutter and will make 1080p a reality.

This problem is hard to pinpoint as there are so many variables. If I could ask you a few questions first: -What is the model of the display?-What other components are hooked up to it?-What cables are connecting these components to the TV (e.g.. HDMI, Component, Composite etc.)?-Are you using an external sound source (stereo) or the TV speakers for audio?-Do you see and indicators or the screen when you turn up/down the volume or change inputs? This is of course using the Samsung TV's remote. I would try these things though: 1. Turn the TV off, unplug it from the power source for 30 seconds.2. Check the cables are all plugged in firmly and correctly. 3. Plug it back in and turn on the TV.Still no picture? 4. Try changing to another input (e.g. DVD, VCR, XBOX etc if you have one)3. Check on the Tv's remote to see if there is a "picture mute", "blanking" or similar button they may have been accidentally pressed. When you press it again, you will get picture back. If there is no button and still experiencing the same problem after checking all these things then you may have a fault.
If you are only getting a black and whiite image, that means you're only getting the luminance portion of the signal through your cables. You either have the Xbox connected wrong, or you have bad cables.
