Question about Samsung Televison & Video
Hi, I hope you can help. I'm having problems with my Samsung TV and PS3 working together. During gameplay, the screen keeps fading through black. This only happens when I use the HDMI cable.
I tried using the scart cable and the PS3 works fine, but the picture quality isn't great. I've used different HDMI cables and have the same problem. I even tried my PS3 on a 40" 1080i Samsung tv and the blinking still happens.
What is the problem do you think?

The issue of connectivity between the PS3 and the display is very complex and depends on the type of TV (Analog, Digital or HD Ready), the maker of TV (until recently, only Toshiba TVs have component AV connections as standard in Europe, most other Euro TV sets use SCART which can not carry an HD signal) and specification of TV (the very latest HD Ready TV sets have wider connectivity options than earlier HD "capable" TVs from the same manufacturer which may have lacked HDMI), and finally the configuration of the PS3 model purchased.

connect PS3 to TV
select HDMI channel on TV
press AND HOLD power button on PS3 until screen resolution selection page appears.
PS3 should now work.

It very much depends on:
the model of DVD player you have and whether it is a standard or blu-ray player
the settings on the player
the type of connection (component and HDMI will yield a better picture)

you have to re sync your playstation when you go from HDMI to regular wires.
after you connect ps3 to tv.
hold down the power buttondown on the ps3 for like 5 seconds (1 beep then another ),
after you hear a second beep the ps3 automoatically adjusts itself to whatever it's connected to.

I too went through this problem.
Step 1 - Plug in your "composite" cables and the HDMI cable to the PS3. Obviously, the "composite" cable are the ones that came with the system. You need to start with them as the default connector.
Step 2 - After connecting the "composite" cable and the HDMI cable to the PS3, connect the other ends to your TV.
Step 3 - Power on your PS3
Step 4 - Select display settings-->video output settings
Step 5 - Change from the current video cables to HDMI. (Your tv has different inputs. When you switch to HDMI in the PS3, you will have to switch your TV to the HDMI input that it is connected to, to get a picture)
Step 6 - Be quick, the PS3 will display a "test" for 30 seconds. You need to switch your tv to the correct HDMI input and press "X" on your controller to accept the change.
Let me know how this works for you.
