PS3 Audio and Video skipping occasionally

10 replies 480 views Edited Jan 16, 2008
I've done an internet search and have seen that others have had similar trouble.  I am running the PS3 though HDMI for both audio and video.  About once every 3-5 minutes the sound skips out for approximately 2 seconds.  This happens most often when playing DVDs, both regular format and Blu-Ray, but happens even on dashboard and video games from time to time.  Anyone have any fixes that they are aware of?  Thanks for any help

Are your Blu-Ray Discs scratched?

No brand new out of the box, not to mention like I said it happens even on the dashboard just not as frequently.  It acts as though the PS3 is churning and attempting to keep up with the video/audio feed.

Sounds like a motherboard or driver issue if it were a PC. I recommend you contact Sony as soon as possible. They may need to have your console sent to them to be repaired or replaced.

How long is your HDMI cable? If it's over 12ft, try changing your HDMI cables as the cheap one's won't cut it over that length. Pop for the more expensive HDMI cables when you get around 15ft.

I would guess you have a bad HDMI cable. Mine was doing the EXACT same thing (but just with Video since my audio is optical). Replaced the cable, worked fine.
Miss me? Come say hi over at my new programming project page, Retro-Pixel Castles.
Hopefully coming to Steam in 2015!

Cable is only 3' long . . . I will try replacing it before contacting Sony.  Thanks for the ideas . . . I'll let you know how it turns out.
