Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

PS3 audio problem

I just purchased a PS3 mainly for the Blu-ray player. I hooked up my PS3 to my Sony Receiver using the optical out on the blu-ray. When I watch a movie in surround sound the audio drops out for a few seconds and then come back on only to repeat this so that it is impossible to watch the movie. Seems that the signal gets interrupted and then regained. I set the Blu-ray up to output bitstream as when i set it to PCM I only get stereo single to the receiver. The PS3 only has one choice for my receiver because my receiver does not have a HDMI input. BTW the sound only seems to go out when there is load action type sounds. Need some help making sure I have the right setting.

    Firmware on PS3 has been updated with no change and I have replaced the optical cable to make sure it's not the cable.

    My receiver works fine with all other DVD players just when I use the PS3 blu-ray disc. there are about five options to select from when I choose the settings in the PS3. They include dolby digital 5.1, Dolby Digital DTS, Linear PCM 48, and other Linear PCM options that are higher speed rates which i do not select. It appears that the Blu-ray can send signal a higher rates if selected. when I select the DD 5.1 and the DD DTS and enter I gat a message similar to " all signals may not be recieved properly" which I do not understand but select OK and then get the poor results.

    I had no intensions to buy a new receiver when I purchased the Blu-ray. How can I get it to work and get the standard DD5.1?

Purchased 60GB backward compatable PS3 ( used). Will not play games, PS2 or PS3, they freeze up.


There are 3 main causes and solutions:

Software Issue (Restore the PS3 to factory settings via Sytem, Settings, Restore PS3

Dirty blu-ray lens ( take the PS3 apart and clean the laser eye carefully with a DRY q-tip.

Faulty / Failing blu-ray drive ( check and secure all of the cables to the blu-ray drive)

If the issue persists then more than likely you'll need to swap the blu-ray laser out with a new one.

There are a ton of guides on ps3hax.net and youtube.

Hope this info helps!

Surround sound on ps3


Most digital inputs are assignable, so go to set-up menu on your receiver and make sure the optical port (opt1 , opt2, etc.) is assigned to the input (vcr, aux, etc.) that you want switch to to listen to the PS3. You may also need to go into the PS3 settings menu and turn the optical to output the Dolby Digital signal. You have to do this with most DVD players, too.

My ps3 will not read my disc sometimes and other times it will read it but it will not work


The disc may be quote, "Corrugated", hence the laser is having a hard time following mis ~ aligned structural pattern. Try to use a CD ~ Lens Cleaner. :)

PS3 surround sound


You will need the optical cable. My receiver only passes video through the hdmi. So I hooked up the HDMI cable to the tv, and the optical cable to the receiver. Once that is done you have to go to the audio settings for the PS3 and chose audio through the optical.

NO SURROUND SOUND WHEN PLAYING BLU-RAY


Your amplifier should "downgrade" the signal to 5.1, even if the disc isn't using it. It is most likely a setting on your amp that may need adjusting for "types" of digital to accept on its input. If you can, set your optical input on your amp to "auto". This way it will automatically detect and switch for the proper incoming audio feed

PS3 HDMI PROBLEM WITH SOUND


Hi,

I am pretty sure you need to have an Optical cable running from Your PS3 to your sound system...if you have one...

So basically you will have a HDMI cable running from your PS3 into your TV, another HDMI cable running from your TV into your sound system, then an optical cable running from the PS3 to the Sound system. I sadly own a HDDVD sound system but the optical cable tells it to accept the Blu Ray content.....
