Hello,

I've had a PS4 Pro for less than a month, and am using it with a Samsung 1080p LED (with the HDMI cable that came with the PS4 Pro). About once every 5-6 times I turn on the PS4 Pro, the screen will flicker for about 20 seconds and then reset itself to normal; if I restart the PS4 Pro before that happens, that also fixes it.

Even though it's a random and temporary issue, it's still aggravating. In digging around online, it appears to be possibly a HDMI handshake issue, but I'm not sure.

I've tried unplugging/replugging the HDMI cable to the TV, but it doesn't seem to have any effect. Should I try unplugging the cable from the PS4 Pro itself and the TV and replug them, or does anyone have any suggestions?

Thank you!

@TRheault: Handshake issue for sure, what TV is it? you cant just say Samsung 1080p.

Reset the HDMI settings on the TV.

Why'd you get a PS4P for a small TV?
