Why is there no sound on my PS3?

16 replies 92491 views Edited Jan 29, 2009
I have played my ps3 several times, using an hdmi cable hooked up to a hdtv and have never had a problem with anything. Then one day I turn it on just like any other day and there is absolutely no sound. I have picture but no sound. I have not changed any settings or anything. I tried using the component cables and when i do the sound is fine. I can't bare to play using the component cables though, can anyone tell me anything?

I went around for hours one day trying to fix this exact problem for another guy.

 

Does your TV have a 2nd HDMI port?

 

If so, try that FIRST. Ended up his HDMI port was **bleep'd**

It does have a 2nd port but I tried it with no luck. Do you think it is the TV? or maybe the hdmi cord?

Since the sound was fine through component cables, did you make sure to change the sound to go through HDMI as well?  I know it sounds trivial, but it's better to get through the basics first.

Try this...

 

Force it to reset its audio config.

 

PS3 Settings -> Sound Settings -> Audio Output Settings -> HDMI -> Automatic -> X Button

 

If no luck, then...

 

PS3 Settings -> Video Settings -> BD/DVD Audio Output Format (HDMI) -> Linear PCM

 

AND PLEASE FOR THE LOVE OF SACKBOY... MAKE SURE THE VOLUME IS UP (some ppl, u kno, jst gotta b sure)

It was the correct settings because I started off with HDMI and it worked fine...none of the settings had been changed.

Wow, apparently all it needed was to reset the settings. How strange. Thanks a bunch for your help!
