Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

Open Question

I cannot get PS3 to work with Bose Solo.

I just bought a Bose Solo. Connected Sat receiver to TV, along with PlayStation 3, using HDMI cables. I then connected the audio optical wire from the Bose Solo to the TV. Satellite works fine, PS3 gets video but no audio. I went in to change the audio setting on the PS3 and chose opitcal audio, but have no clue what to choose next. I know it's not 5.1. Can anyone help me?

SOURCE: PS3 HDMI No picture nor audio

  1. Make sure the HDMI cable is connected to the HDMI OUT port on the back of the PLAYSTATION 3 system. Connect the other end of the HDMI cable into the HDMI Input port of the TV or display monitor.
  2. While the PLAYSTATION 3 system is in standby mode (red light on the front of the system), hold down the touch-sensitive power button on the front of the system until the system goes into standby mode again . (So the light cycle would go from: red light --> green light --> then back to red light). This will ensure that you have held down the power button long enough to reset the Video Output Settings.
  3. Turn on the PLAYSTATION 3 system and once the system finishes powering up, the Video Output Settings will automatically reset to the standard resolution (or detect the current display output settings of your TV/monitor).

SOURCE: HDMI AUDIO NOT PASSING THROUGH?

OK try to connect all to tv and from tv connect the sound in digital to H/K receiver and you will have sound at the receiver no matter what.

SOURCE: No Audio

YOU HAVE TO GO INTO SETUP AND SPLIT THE AUDIO SIGNAL VIA OPTICAL OUTPUT. THE PS3 WILL DETECT THE CABLE AND GIVE YOU A PROMPT.

SYTEM SETTINGS ON THE STARTUP SCREEN AND BE SURE TO NOT HAVE A GAME IN THE MACHINE AT THE TIME.

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 audio


I beleive that you have connected the HDMI cable to the TV and that you have connected audio out from the TV to the bose system.(I'm assuming that the Bose does not have HDMI connections) it won't work you will have to connect the Digital Fiber Optic out of the TV to the Bose or Direcly from the PS3 to the Bose. Now if you connect it direclly from the PS3 to the Bose you will have to change the audio settings on the PS3 in Audio out from HDMI to Digital Fiber Optic.

NO CLOSED CAPTION VIA BOSE LIFESTYLE 20 SYSTEM


CC is a function of your cable box in this case. TV's have the feature as well, but Bose is right about not all HDMI devices supporting CC through HDMI, especially converting from component to HDMI before hitting your TV. The solution: call your cable provider for this. Start at the source. The cables you use or the TV won't 'take away' closed caption if it's already there.

Ps3 not working


  • Check that the input mode of the TV is appropriate for the connector in use on the PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system.
  • There may be a problem with the cable in use. Try using another cable that is compatible with the PLAYSTATION®3.
  • If the video output settings on the PLAYSTATION®3 do not match those of the cable or TV in use, there may be no picture. If the screen goes blank, turn off the system.
  • Then, with only the PLAYSTATION®3 and the TV connected, touch the system's power button for more than 5 seconds to turn the system back on. The video output settings will automatically be reset to the standard resolution.
if that does not work then call Sony at
