Started to have some issues with my connection between the TV and the PS5. Playing Warzone this morning and twice the screen went black saying there’s no connection. Was solved by unplugging the HDMI cable from the TV and plugging it back in. The TV would still show that the PlayStation 5 is plugged in to that port in the inputs menu.

This evening it wouldn’t even display anything using the same port but would work on other ports but those ports don’t support the best settings. Again, the TV recognises that the PS5 is plugged into that port.

Plugged the PS4 into the same port that was having issues using the same (PS5) HDMI cable and it worked first time.

Plugged the PS5 in again and it seems to be working again 🤷🏼‍♂️

What could be causing this? Never had this issue before with the PS4 or the PS5.

TV is 2016/17 Sony

@oYOUSERo The problem with HDMI connection issues is that it could be so many things. Could be the port on the TV, the port on the console, the cable itself, or an internal issue with your TV, or your console, related to either software or hardware. Even testing other consoles and cables like you've done isn't a guarantee; as you say, your PS4 worked first time, but then your PS5 seems to work after unplugging and plugging it back in, so it could just be a loose connection that degrades after a while.

On balance, given the age of your TV, it's more likely that the fault is on that end. You know the PS5 and its HDMI cable are functional, and are much newer. Try running a firmware update on your TV and then check its display settings alongside whatever Google says is optimal.

@RogerRoger everything works fine on the non HDR ports. Just the two ports with HDR are having issues. Other devices work with those ports 🤷🏼‍♂️

@oYOUSERo Try changing the HDR settings on your TV, and then on your PS5. You can deactivate HDR on the latter entirely, if it's the cause of the problem.
