Only sound comes when i connect HDMI cable to my TV for the ps3

you need to select High definition output on the PS3. Connect it via hdmi and via standard lead switch the tv to standard so you can see the picture then select high definition output. Switch over to hdmi and you should see a picture

All picture and no sound

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.

Got picture no sound on games only

Check the audio settings on PS3 and make sure they are set to what audio source you are using. If not that make sure those inputs work with other devices. If not that then the sound card has gone out and the soon the video car will go out.... :(

Full HD picture NO SOUND from ps3 to lg42hd using HDMI

Maybe your TV is not made for HD from the Sony Console. Try calling Sony Customer support, then your TV's brand Customer support. That will tell you if your TV Model allows the HD from the PS3. Remember though, PS3 Uses Blu-Ray. So you need Blu-Ray for your TV. Hope this helped.

All picture and no sound

Silly question, but have you gone into the setup for the AUDIO and chosen the correct signal connection i.e. Audio via HDMI, AV or something else?
