You need a HDMI connection for your stereo. HDMI is an all in one cable so if you don't get your sound in/out you need to hook up to just the RCA's, if you get a reciver that has an HDMI input you will solve this. then you go HDMI to Reciver then HDMI to TV

All picture and no sound


Rick:
simply unplug--then replug--your HDMI cable. Or also go into the audio setup menu and reapply the "automatic" setting for HDMI to get the sound to work. I don't know if Sony can do anything about this or not in a firmware upgrade, but what it can do is try to simplify the labeling on some of the sound settings.
Let me know

Hi i have a samsung sp50l 7hx and just bought a ps3 tried to conect with hdmi leads and also red white and yellow leads just getting a blue screen up and not sure what to do as i havent got tv manual


I believe that the PS3 only supports one output at a time you could try unplugging the a/v cables and leave the hdmi cable inserted you should get picture and when you do change the settings of the PS3 to support 720p or 1080p as the quality will greatly increase.

My PS3 wont display.


you could use the hdmi cable or the composite cable(like the old playstation one with the 3 leads but different colours,not red,white,yellow.)
both would be better for a plasma.
make sure your screen can utilise 1080 for hdmi.
if 720 or 480 use the composite cable.

PS3 hook up to sony reciever


its in the sound settings on your ps3, change to hdmi out put, this should sort it, if not you can use your scart lead for the sound, just use red and white lead straight into your sound system or sony reciever. but you will need to set it up in the sound settings in your ps3. hope this helps

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.
