I have this problem on my xbox too. I think, this is a bug of tv hdmi-chip. Solution for xbox: go to "display" settings and change "automatic display detection" to "manual". Console has been restarted. After that you need to change the display resolution to 1080p again - yep, problem solved. Maybe, it helps for PS3 too;)

When I switch my tv to the HDMI input it appears to be normal for a few seconds but the screen stays black and I get a thin pink line running horizontally across the bottom right corner of the screen then...


You did not mention what you are connecting with HDMI but I have had problems with my PS3 and it is copy protection related. On a PS3, you have to connect it to HDMI1 otherwise some BlurRay movies will not play.
You might have a bad HDMI cable. I have heard the quality of cable does not matter these days but I still have had issues with the really cheap cables. I still do not buy the really expensive HDMI cables though.

HDMI PROBLEMS


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.
