PSVR Goes Black Mid Way Through Game

-

Every now and then when I am in the middle of playing a game using the PSVR the screen will just black out. Some times it will flicker and come back, but other times it just completely blacks out. The signal to the TV goes black too, but there appears to be static or some other noise that shows up on the TV. When it flickers it has a chance of coming back and not doing it again, but it can also just stay blacked out and ill need to do a hard reset of the PS4 in order to fix it. 

I am using a PS4 Pro and I am sitting relatively close to the system so there is a lot of slack in the cable. Not a chance I would accidentally pull on anything in order to pull out a cable or anything. I have made sure that the connections for all of the cables are in tight.

It isnt a huge deal, but it is annoying if I am playing an arcade style game and it cuts out and I end up having to restart the system. Is there anything that might be causing the screen to go black on the PSVR?

Some people have reported that it is due to cheap HDMI cables that struggle to handle the amount of data being sent. I’m not entirely sure this is true. The HDMI cable is definitely the cause though. Make sure the connections are tight and there isnt any damage to the connections of the HDMI cables that you are using
