Hello, I did a pretty thorough search on this, but couldn't find a solution. My problem is that my Samsung LCD model #LN46A550P searches for signal when I start or quit a game or blu-ray movie on my 160GB PS3 slim. I have the PS3 hooked up directly to the TV via a HDMI 1.3 cable. When the PS3 system starts up, it displays in 1080p as it should, but then when you start a game or movie, the screen goes black and it says "searching for signal" for a few seconds. Then the game or movie starts. With the games, is this normal since they are actually 720p rather than 1080p and the TV is just taking a moment to adjust the resolution? I have a friend who has an older PS3 and a Vizio LCD and he doesn't have any sort of screen going black issue or searching for signal problem. Although the PS3 works fine, this is just a bit annoying so I'm wondering if anyone has figured out a solution?
I've gone through the settings on the PS3 trying different things, tried a couple different HDMI cables, a couple different HDMI ports on the TV, tried changing the name of the HDMI port on the TV to something like "PC", and I also updated the TV"s firmware to the latest version. Nothing has worked and I'm out of ideas here, so any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
