Hi, I have this problem, I would like to get help with.


When i plug my pc to led monitor using hdmi cable, and start to watch netflix or dvd disc movies, monitor keeps turning on and off randomly. The movie is going right as i hear the sound. But display keeps turning once, pause a few seconds, then turns off and on in a row, then it stops and goes again.


But, when i play a game, it goes well without a hitch, not a single turn in black. When I switch cable, it's the same thing. I tried changing res or refresh rate - same. Tried switching hdmi cables - same. Games works well, movies randomly turns monitor on and off.


And when I use my old DVI-I cable it works like a charm both ways.


Can Somebody tell me what is going on? Is my HDMI port failing? But what about games running like there's no problem.
