Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
I have console connected to a sharp LCD37XD1E tv for 1080P. Every now and the about 5mins aprox, the picture and sound will go off for anywhere from a split second to 2 seconds during game play, xmb view or film playback, which is annoying. The hdmi cale has been changed (both support 1080P). The PS3 has been changed. The firmware & hdmi board in the tv have been updated but still the problem persists. Anyone else had similar probs. I think i`ll still going down the sharp route for now?
I also had the same problem with my Samsung 1080P.its seems there is a "handshake"issue between the ps3 and the tv.restarting the system helped solve my problem.also insert the cables once again.

Tips for a great answer:
HDMI is available in several versions. The PS3 is compatible with HDMI version 1.3 or higher, which will take full advantage of Blu-ray Disc™ high-definition video. There are also "Type A" and "Type B" connectors. The PS3 uses the 19-pin Type A connector, which will allow resolutions up to 1080p.
The HDMI cable is not included with the PS3.
If you are using an adaptor (i.e., HDMI to DVI converter), try bypassing this adaptor and connecting the HDMI cable directly into the display.
Try connecting with the supplied AV Cable instead of the HDMI to see if you can get a successful installation. This will help determine where the problem may be with your particular HDMI setup and/or equipment.
Some older HDTVs may have issues with the copy protection protocols (HDCP) causing the handshake not being communicated between the TV and the PS3. Try resetting the TV by turning the TV and PS3 off, then unplug the TV power cord from the outlet and plug it back in. Then turn your TV and PS3 back on and see if the picture appears.
