SOURCE: Sound work with Headset but on speaker no sound otherwise

one way what u can try is have your headset when u turn on the psp after switching off. then once again try restarting without it. now u might have sound if your speakers arent dead. else am sure ur speakers or connection to it is dead. else try wit different UMDs. again one more is try updating the psp to a newer version. if u have a software problem which causes the sound off then that might fix it.

That is a problem in Family Stting I list this in the order you have to go to communicate with many other ppl.

1. Go to 'System Settings'
2. Go to 'Family Settings'
3. Go to 'Xbox LIVE Controls'
4. Pick The Account You Want To Modify.
5.Put in Your E-mail address ad pass word that was used for the LIVE signup

6.Go to 'Privacy and Freinds' Allow Everything especially voice chat.
7. In Alll 3 setting I reccomend having them all to allow everything,unlock all,etc. ,etc.

SOURCE: when entering a game I hear sound but no picture.

If you are sure that you have your TV on the correct input, you can try resetting the PS3's video settings using the following procedure:

  1. Before changing cables, make sure the PlayStation 3 is turned off using the main power switch on the back of the PlayStation 3 (the 0 side is pressed down).

  2. Unplug the power cord of the PlayStation 3 and television (or display) from the wall socket.

  3. Make sure the HDMI cable is connected to the [HDMI OUT] port on the back of the PlayStation 3 system.

  4. Connect the other end of the HDMI cable into the [HDMI Input] port of the TV or display monitor.

  5. Plug the PlayStation 3 and television (or display) back in to the wall socket.

  6. Turn the main power switch on the back of the PlayStation 3 back on (the line on the power button is now pressed).

  7. While the PlayStation 3 system is in standby mode (red light on the front of the system), hold down the touch-sensitive On/Off button on the front of the system until the system goes into standby mode again . (So the light cycle would go from: red light to --> green light --> then back to red light) This will ensure that you have held down the On/Off button long enough to reset the Video Output Settings.

  8. Turn ON the PlayStation 3 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).
If that does not resolve your issue, try the other steps here:

Cable box lights off won't turn on

This happened to me, and here is what I did... For some odd reason all of the lights and cords were plugged in correctly, except I could not hear the game chat. This happens when your headset is UNSYNCED. Take the headset back over to the xbox/ps3 and resync them. If that does not work, unplug every cable/wire to the headset (even from the xbox/ps3) reassemble it and sync it. It should work then. I have no idea why it will suddenly unsync, but fortunately it doesn't happen that often.

My USB headset (Wintech...China) won't work with GT5. It works perfectly in PS3 chat and in audio device settings (menu). In game i can hear people talk but they can't hear me. Chat indicator...

Hi, this may not be super helpful but the only thing I can suggest with this problem is to go to your game options and see if you can change any settings for your microphone or headset through there. If you are still unable to find a solution try to unplug and reset everything.

If you still are having the same issue I suggest contacting either the headset's manufacturer for technical support, or the Playstation technical support.

I hope this helps

How do i get game sound through my x11 whilst usind a hdmi cable as the headset plugs into xbox lead then into tv but u cant use the xbox lead and hdmi lead as they go in the same connection

In this situation you have two options. A) Use the orignal xbox lead cable with component, and YpBpR cable ends and plug in your headphones with that configuration. B) A lot of TV's these days have red and white (audio out) jacks, plug your headphone adapter into the audio out, and use your headphones with that configuration!

I cant hear the game sounds through my headset i can only hear people voices, and i have everything plugged in the right spot

Some games only transfer people's voices to the headset while others transfer all the sound. Check your game setting for headset options

I just bought the tritton ax 720 headset for my xbox 360. I can't find the manual, and I need to hear my game through my headset, not just the tv. I heard something about an optical cord, but I don't know...

The AX 720's can be connected with an Optical cable but you must have such a plug on the back of your Xbox360.

If you dont have an Optical Outpun on your Xbox360 then you'll need to connect them to your TV with the green jack from the cable provided with the headsets.

The manual can be found here:,1

Hope it helps...

I can hear game sound through my headset, i cant hear players but i can talk through my headset why is this?

You probably kinked your controller cable. That will cause the mic to malfunction. You should purchase a new controller cable on TurtleBeach's website under "Replacement Parts".

Turtle beaches randomly stop working READ and HELP

This sounds like a broken talkback cable (puck). You can buy a replacement on the Turtle Beach site or contact their support about getting a replacement.

Voices and Game sounds from headset and from TV speakers

It isn't a headset issue. This is an issue that should be easily solved by going into the options menu of your game.
