Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

PS3 does not play any sound, HDMI or Optical

Dear Support,
Happy New Years!
My new Sony PS3 (6 months old or so) has some sound issues that have only gotten worse. In the beginning games and movies would have regular periods of a second of silence during play. Recently, a few weeks ago, my PS3 has stopped all its sound. I haven't changed any of the configuration or hardware at all. The PS3 was originally connected to a speaker system via optical. To troubleshoot I tried using the HDMI to have sound directly from the TV speakers. This does not work either. Please advise on how to get my sound working again.
Thanks,
-Joshua Polier

    I checked out the video. Already tried the 10 second reset... doesn't work... my sound also cuts out for like a second every minute or few minutes its not as frequent as in the video, different problem I think. Also I have used the Linear PCM settings and tried a few others. I think my hardware crapped out. Not sure though.

Try resetting your PS3 video/audio settings.

ress and hold the power button until the systems shuts off. (wait 2 seconds)

Press and hold the power button again until you here 3 beeps. Let go.



It should ask you to connect your controller via usb and press the PS button in

the middle of your controller. There will be a menu with 6 options. Try 2-5.

The sacd player was working fine. But now will not play them. Using optical for sound hdmi for video. Played around with different settings but will only read the cd portion of the sacd. Any ideas? like i...


Your PS3 may actually be playing the SACD layer but if you're listering through optical you're not going to get any better sound quality than CD.

For stereo SACD quality you can use the analog outputs; for multichannel SACD quality you'll need to use HDMI.

See the PS3 SACD FAQ.

Have a PS3 connected via HDMI to Panasonic Viera 42". Can't get any volume while playing Call of Duty Modern Warfare. Volume is good on start up but not during game play. Can you help?


Sony PS3 has an Audio issue with HDMI, the only way to cure this bbuilt in defect is to use a seperate audio cable and use the HDMI for the video, I suggest the audio hook be a optical digital cable, if you don't have one they are avail on ebay very cheap, if you don't have the optical input on the TV then use standard RCA audio A and B cables

Simultaneous Optical & HDMI Audio on PS3


I'm almost positive it cannot stream the sound through two outputs by design. However if your TV has a digital optical output you can run it to the TV via HDMI and from the TV to the receiver go with the optical. It shouldn't bother the quality at all being HDMI is also a digital interface, you're just passing it through your TV.

Ps3 using digital optical and hdmi cables together


There is a conflict in the fact that HDMI gives you the digital surround sound without the need for the optical lead and when you allocate the optical for the sound thats when the conflict starts, you can only use one or the other.
