No but what is happening is the Hz that the PS3 is putting out is more than the TV you have it hooked to will take, go to your menu screen and find the screen settings and bring the Hz down to a level that the TV can handle, also try a different Resolution that will help also...

Can't accept my hdmi cable via laptop, keeps saying no signal


Are you enabling the external display feature? The HDMI must be enabled from the laptop keyboard before it will output. This is done with the "Fn" Key (lower left next to Windows key + the F5 key. This is a 3-way toggle. The default is normal screen. First toggle switches to external (HDMI), second toggle to both screens, and the third back to normal.

This excerpt from your User's Guide:

<Fn> + <F5> Display toggle
Switches display output between the display screen,
external monitor (if connected) and both.

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.

PS3 screen flash / sound cut-out


The PS3 has an issue with what's called the "HDMI handshake" between the PS3 and the TV. The PS3 does not even realise that this is happening. What you might try to do is turn the system on, play a game, and when the flashing and no sound occurs, unplug the HDMI cable from your PS3, wait a few seconds and plug it back in. This may resolve your issue. If it doesn't work, try component cables, there is no known issue with this problem occuring with this type of connection. Good luck!

Flashing / ghosting with Bose Lifestyle V30


I recommend you switch from using HDMI cables to using component (R/G/B RCA-style) cables. HD picture is superior through component cabling, and solves several HD picture issues. Component cabling from your devices should eliminate your problems.

I hope that helps.

Xbox 360 elite won't play any games


Did you try to see if your tv's hdmi/component cable input(s) are working properly? Try another device to see if it works. Then check your cables and make sure all of them are pluged in at the right place and securely in. If it still doesn't work, then contact Microsoft because it's an internal error. Also it wouldn't hurt to unplug everything from the 360 and repluging it. Microsoft always says that as a first troubleshoot.
