My PS3 will not play sound and video on most of my games. HELP PLEASE!

6 replies 20 views Edited Dec 28, 2011

I recently got a new PS3 and there's just one problem. It will play sound on some but there is no video. On other games it goes to a black screen and there is no video or sound. I just wanted to know if anyone else is having this problem and if you know how to fix it. Thanks for any information provided

what cables are you using to connect to what kind of tv, and what audio/video settings are you using.

go to settings on the main screen,  clic on "sound settings", then 'audio output settings'.

then make sure 'audio input connector/scart/av multi' is selected.

on the next screen unselect everything except for the 2-channel options.

So some of your games work, while others don't?  I was thinking perhaps it's the PS3 reading as an HDMI while you are using the traditional audio video cables.
