    I have same problem sound effects but no dialogue but only on certain games....and on DVD's

    I have the same problem but I think it's to do with my TV. It's an HD TV working through the HDMI cable and the picture's fine, but I can't hear cutscene dialogue and various other bits of dialogue in lots of games. The same happened in GTAIV, but when I changed the settings from surround sound to stereo in the options menu then I could hear everything fine. The problem is loads of other games don't let you do this! And the audio options in the PS3 home menu are confusing so I don't want to break anything!!! Any suggestions?

Grab one of those compressed air cans from office max and blow it into the cd slot with no disc in it, the lens on the inside is probably dirty. If that doesn't fix it you will need to contact Sony @ 1-877-253-SONY(7669) for a replacement unit.

Hi, I use a Playstation 3 system via HDMI on my Walker HDTV and have done so for the last two years atleast with no problems. Lately however, when using the PS3 system I can see video perfectly but,...


Hi.

I'm not sure if this will help, but I had a similar issue, I used a toothbrush and some isopropyl alcohol to clean the contacts on the PS3 socket and did the tv socket as well just in case, I also cleaned the HDMI plugs the same way and presto! audio was restored.

Could also be the HDMI lead at fault, worth a try if you can borrow one to check.

Hope this works for you.

Bad sound through HDMI


Is it only in Games or Movies?

Try checking the cables. (obvious I know but it must be said).

On the XMB (Cross Media Bar), go to settings on the left. Scroll down to "Sound Settings"

Choose "Audio Output Settings", then "HDMI", then "Auto"

If that doesn't fix it then choose manual and the most basic outputs first;
-Linear PCM 2ch. 44.1KHz
and
-Linear PCM 2ch. 48KHz

Depending on your surround sound setup your could get away with other options as well. Fist determine if your setup is 5.1 or 7.1, DTS or Dolby Digital. Then start with the lower KHz settings and work your way up.
