TV is on static with HDMI plugin?

I have my PS4 tuned into HDMI 1 and it's all static-y.

Update:

To better explain, I have my PlayStation plugged into HDMI 1, and it works fine on it's own. But I have PlayStation VR, and every time I turn on the VR the TV goes to static. There's nothing wrong about my setup cause it's been the same since I got it.

    It could be your HDMI cable. HDMI cables can go bad especially when plugging and unplugging them a lot. The wires inside are very small  The connections to the plug end are delicate...Better cables will have a better designed contact area and more protection around the plug wire interface but even good cables can go bad with repeated use...Also it not easy to tell by just looking if the cable has been designed well even price is not always an indicator.
