    I took the PS3 back to the retailer who exchanged it for another only to get home and have exactly the same problem!!!!!! I now have the sound through an amp and speakers which sounds better than through the tv.

    I have a similar issue, but it only happens in some PS3 games, like Resistance 2 and PixilJunk Monsters, in short some of the new ones, Resistance, Dynasty Warriors Gundam and the earlier launch titles do not do this, I also dont get it with Blue ray dvds or ps2/1 games.

RUV85 is right, after disabling the dolby 5.2 surround option under the manual hdmi audio settings things are fine. I had crackling in condemned 2 and afro samurai demo, now I dont. Also this was not the unpatched condemned 2 audio problem where it would cut out randomly and crackle.

The problem might be your speakers. Try a different set of speakers to where your TV system. Maybe the speakers inside the TV is bad.

While playing call of duty 4, the explosions make the TV's speaker go to a loud crackling noise, Only this game does it.


That's because explosions are pretty much only low frequencies, otherwise known as bass. Your tv crackles because the low frequency emitters of your tv are either of low quality or malfunctioning. If you lower the volume of your tv it should fix the problem.

Hd tv but no hdmi plugin,standard red,white yellow plug...when there is a loud noise (explosion,dino roaring etc)I get a loud crackling noise from speakers that actually drowns out the sound fx on a ps3...


Sounds like more of a tv speaker problem then your ps3. You can change the audio settings on the XMB dashboard of your ps3. I think they are default at max.

Go to audio options, and manually DE-select Digital 5.1. That should fix it. It did for me.
