    Much like slender man on that film footage.
    On random occasions,my video signal messes up with shimmers of static and random colors before returning back to normal.

    I assume that it is just my dirt cheap Crap-E-Latch HDMI wire slowly dying.

    If it is not,then what do you suppose is making this happen?

    I thought it was a cheap brand,but its not.
    It turned out to be GE,the same brand I bought afterward.

    I replaced my HDMI wire.

    Edit:It did not fix it,I am now getting unsupported text with green/pink colors and static until I re-hook the HDMI.

    WHAT IS GOING ON???

    My TV supports 720p and 1080P and I have it set to 720p.

    Will someone please help me fix this problem for good?

    I also have a dead pixel on my screen if that makes any difference,but it was like that months before this problem started.

    Do you have another device (ps3, xbox, ect...) you can plug into your tv using the same cable & hdmi port?

    we first want to rule out and TV issue.

    No,I have no other device with an HDMI input or any game console at all,my life sucks.

    One HDMI slot,and the new wire got the unsupported message with colors and static.

    It happened with the new wire only once so far.

    It is currently working since this is being posted with the very same GS7.

    The unsupported cable could mean that you are using an older TV/device and that cable it designed for a later HDMI version. Or the TV/decive is newer and the cable is not designed for that type of HDMI cable.

    But without another HDMI device to test the TV, or another TV with HDMI connection to test the GS7, it pretty cripples troubleshooting.

    Doesn't matter much now since I have not seen it happen a second time.
    Still running fine for me now.
