I just got done playing Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City like 15 minutes ago. While I quit the game and it went to the XMB menu, my TV screen was going crazy. It would keep flashing back and forth to a black screen, picture, black screen, picture, and then it would stay in black screen for awhile longer and goes back to the picture to start over the flashing again. I turned off the PS3 while keeping my TV on and turned it back on and it started to do the flashing again. I turned off the PS3 again and the TV. I waited for a few minutes and turned both back on to still having the same issue. I turned off both again and check the HDMI cable connected to the TV end to make sure it wasn't loose and then I unplugged from the PS3 end. I noticed the HDMI cable connected to the PS3 was very hot. I plugged it back again and tried it one more time to see if it works and it worked normally.
Is the HDMI cable overheating and going bad? Or is it the HDMI port on the PS3 going bad? This is the 1st time it has done this. My PS3 Slim is going to be 3 years old in November. I doubt my PS3 is overheating cause it would have shut down and it hasn't. Anyone had this issue before?
