Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
I have a Philips 42" HD. After experiencing the same problem, I followed all the suggestions posted on FIXYA and the issue still persisted. I then unplugged my tv, waited 20 secs., plugged the set back and that resolved my problem. Hope this works for some of you folks out there.

Ive got a similar problem. My HDTV has a compatibility issue with the ps3 and whenever I enter a game or switch resolutions TV starts flashing between dotted white screen and ps3 screen. I have to remove the HDMI cable and then put it in again in order to fix it. (Or if you are rich just get another HDTV :D)
I would try it in another HDTV (different model and brand) to discard it being a problem with the HDMI port.

Tips for a great answer:
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.
