I have been having an issue when using component cables on my Wii and PS2. The screen occasionally and randomly will go black for 1-2 seconds while the game continues and I can still hear sound. I did some internet searching and have seen others have experienced this with component cables but have not found a solution or an answer as to what causes it. I originally thought it was my TV. I actually got a warranty repair on it and they replaced the entire video board. I still have the issue. I then figured it was my Wii cables. I thought it was weird since the video is connected with 3 cables and normally if one is not connected properly you get a discolored picture, not a black screen. A black screen I figure is all 3 cables failing at the same time strange. But I got component cables for my PS2 and it has happened with that too. Different cables, same issue. The issue never happens with composite or HDMI inputs and internet searches found others have the same experience. I seen a theory that it is interference and that poor cable shielding is the problem....not sure I am buying that. I also seen a theory that it is related to how the TV is decoding the signal and when the picture has certain attributes they cause some confusion resulting in the black screen...this I may believe. I was hoping someone around here might have more knowledge on this and possibly have a solution. It is infrequent enough that it is not a huge problem, usually a quick pausing of the game is fine, but it can occasionally happen in the middle of some intense part of the game and completely screw me up. The progressive scan picture is still worth putting up with the issue as long as it doesn't get worse.
