I have a Mitsubishi RPTV, and for awhile now every once in awhile the screen when watching cable will flash black before going back to the picture. Sometimes it will do it a couple times in a row, then lose video completely. I have an HD cable box, using an S-video cable. I'd just kind of touch the cable where it connects to the tv when that happens and video would come back(didn't know what else to do and it seemed to work). Then yesterday the picture seemed to kind of flicker a little and today it does that some then sometimes is going to black and white, and nothing fixes it, just comes back to color on it's own. Although the last 2 times it's happened I'd change the channel and it goes back to color that instant. I've switched the cables between input 1 and 2 and doesn't seem to make a difference. So...what's going on?
