No sound from HDMI to PS3

I have a PS3 connected via hdmi monster cable to my sharp 37 inch lcd hdtv 1080i and i get no sound at all, i bought an optical cable and connected it to my bose 321 system and still no sound. i used to get sound from the ps3 and my hdtv but not since i moved and swiched to direct tv which has been messing up my tv ever since it was installed, i also get no sound with the hdmi cable and the cable box, just picture...i used to at one point get sound. I really dont want to go the component route....but if its just for audio i guess . My sharp TV has an optical output,my cable box also has an optical out. any help would be great....the tv is less than 2 years old could i have lost the speakers somehow.

Thanks for any help guys!!

    My son has just got a new HD ready tv for christmas so he can use his ps3 on it.We connected the ps3 to the tv using a HDMI to DVI-I cable and turned the tv onto its HD setting. When we turned the ps3 on and loaded a game there was no sound.We have tried various things but with no luck. Can anyone help me?

    i tried connecting my ps3 to my samsung 21" lcd tv and i got picture but no sound. Do you think that me buying the cheap hdmi cord be the cause of this?

I have HDMI monster cable connected to the Samsung 52' plasma from the ps3 and sound was fine....but now all of the sudden NO Sound!!!! Checked all the settings on my ps3, even tried a new HDMI cable. Still nothing. Any Solutions....or do I have to buy a new ps3. thx.

It needs to be on HDMI with Digital Output, installing new games can change the settings on you. Heres how to change it:
1. Reset the PS3 by turning off then holding power button until it beeps
2. Choose the HDMI settings on the screen when the PS3 detects its presence and select the optimal settings
3. In the PS3 Menu go into the Settings/Sound Settings/Audio Output menu and select Digital Output (and choose your appropriate theatre mode), confirm with X
Your menu screen should now have sound when you move around. This should fix the problem if everthing else here doesn't, it did for me.

This has to do with a firmware update. Remember that if you are running sound output via Digital Optical, some games will NOT support the DTS feature. Go into sound setup and make sure the DTS option (should be second from the top) is disabled. Some games support it (i.e. EA's Dead Space) however many games (Burnout: Paradise and both Resistance 1 and 2) do not. If you are having trouble hearing sound in blu-ray movies (for example, you have menu sound but not sound during the film itself) make sure you have Linear PCM changed to Bitstream accessible by pressing the green triangle button during the film, and going to sound options. This should resolve all problems. Hopefully a future firmware update will allow the system to be intelligent enough to pick what output mode is appropriate.

I connected the PS3 to tv with HDMI to DVI lead. This got me the picture. Then I used the AV composite cable supplied with the PS3 for the sound. Plug the single end into PS3, then just the white and red into the TV Audio sockets. Just leave the yellow unplugged. Go into settings on PS3 and change vision to the HDMI cable and sound to the AV composite cable. Sorted. If pic doesn't come up first time for any reason, turn off PS3 and turn it on again holding the on button on until it beeps.

If you did not change your sound setting to digital output then that would be the reason you still have no sound. Usually when using the HDMI cable it its a must to use the Digital optical cable for sound. Hope this helps. Some TV's do not have the Digital Optical cable input and an external sound system is required most current home theater systems will have this cable input.

PS3 and Sony XBR4 HDMI, 100% perfect.
PS3 and Samsung LNT-4669FX (my brother house), HDMI cable, NO SOUND once the game started. I have tried 3 games.
I did not tried to solve problem.
I guess some incompatibility.

    THIS IS HOW TO RESOLVE NO AUDIO ON PS3:

    From the PS3 main menu:

    1. Settings->Sound Settings->Audio Output Settings
    2. Change it from HDMI to Digital Out (Optical). I do NOT have optical hooked up on my PS3, so if you have it hooked up, you may want to unhook it.. probably shouldn't matter.
    3. I left what was defaulted: "Linear PCM 2 Ch. 44.1 kHz" and 48kHz
    4. Right on the D pad (X selects/unselects options) to move to the next screen.
    5. A confirmation page, hit X to Enter, saving the changes.
    6. Start up a game, you shouldn't hear any sound (as expected)
    7. Exit the game, then go back to Audio Output Settings and switch back to HDMI. I selected "Automatic" for "method for setting the output format."
    8. A confirmation page, hit X to Enter, saving the changes.
    9. Start up a game, you should now hear audio with your game (once again).

    The problem is most likely caused from having switched your PS3 to a different TV for a period of time. At least that was the reason for me

You can connect PS3 video via HDMI to receiver and from receiver via HDMI to TV. But RX-V365 doesn't support HDMI audio, so you have to connect audio separately via SPDIF digital cable. I think PS3 uses optical SPDIF, so you will need optical cable. If you can't find cheaps optical cables in your shop, you can try byuing from ebay ($1-5 max.)

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.

Problem connecting my PS3 to my Sharp Aquos LC-C3237U LCD TV


Your PS3 set itself above the max resolution your LC-C3237U. Most likely the PS3 is doing 1080P, but the highest the Sharp can do is 1080i. So do this:

1. Connect PS3 to TV (you can use the current cable or analog cable)
2. Turn on TV and set input to port PS3 is on.
3. Make sure PS3 is connected via correct cable.
4. Power on PS3 via power button and HOLD IT for 5 seconds (release after the second beep). It should automatically configure your PS3 to the TV's native resolution for all settings.

I have sharp 37 inch LC-37D44U MY PS3 is not working with it it green lights keep blinking power light and OPC. BUT THE HDMi ports work beacause i checked it with other devices. so i dont know why its not...


Does this happen when you input certain signals to the HDMI2_bing.gif ports? Or all signals (e.g. 1080i, 720p, 1080p, etc.)? And which ports are affected - side HDMI, rear component, etc.?

I had this issue and Sharp sent out a local repair tech to install a new main circuit board, then two weeks later, a new side board (where the side inputs connect into the system)... their first visit allowed my TV to accept signals in the rear HDMI ports (all signals worked well), but then I couldn't get a signal processed via the side HDMI port. At first, just 1080p would not display (caused the OPC/power green light blinking), and after a few days, any signal hitting that port would cause the error lights to come on. But as I said, eventually, a new side board resolved that issue.

I want to connect my ps3 via hdmi cable to my magnavox 51mp392h/17 hdtv but theres no hdmi jack on my tv what to i do?


If there is NO HDMI on the TV, There are 2 options to still get HD. 1. Check if your TV has a DVI input, If it does you need a DVI to HDMI converter. This can be a problem with some TV models it might not sync up 100%. 2. I recommend doing this, Purchase the Component Cable For the PS3 from Best Buy or any Game store. Make sure it is the ONE for the PS3!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This cable will give you up to 1080i resolution and stereo Audio. Plug in the Red, Green and Blue into the Component (R,G,B) Input in the TV, The Red and White (audio) will follow into the same Input (White and Red) just match the colors from the cable to the TV. On the PS3 in the Menu go to the 2nd row from the Left and down to DISPLAY SETTINGS. Select Component (under HDMI) check off everything except 1080p and then SAVE by pressing X. If you have a Receiver (AMP) that your Audio goes into, Then you can buy an Optical Cable for Surround Sound. Plug in the Optical cable then on the PS3 go into the menu, 2nd row, Sound Settings, Choose Optical, Then choose Auto and SAVE! Hope this will Help!
