Most audio on PS3 games coming through right speaker

6 replies 421 views Edited Mar 7, 2013

I had the same issue with my previous tv. I have a brand new tv and all of the settings are balanced, but when I play games on my PS3 most of the audio is coming from the right speaker. Some audio like music comes from the left and right speakers but effects and voices only come from the right speaker. Is there a setting that fixes this so the audio is balanced? When I do other things on my PS3 like Netflix or other apps the audio is just fine, it's only when I'm playing games that it's not balanced.

What cables are you using to connect your PS3 to your TV?

Go to settings and then audio settings and adjust accordingly. These settings will most likely fix your problem. If you are trying to output the audio through your TV speakers (which I assume is the case) and your NOT using a toslink cable to send the audio to your TV (your using HDMI), then go to audio settings like I mentioned above and select HDMI and then "manual" and then leave all the boxes unchecked. (Besides the 1s grayed out)

Thanks that worked. I had to uncheck the Dolby 5.1 and now it's balanced and sounds great.

Yeah no problem man. I thought that might have been the problem. 

 

Kudos are appreciated

why the ps3 has a auto detect for sound settings is beyond me because it is horrible at getting it right...
