Re: bad sound

Try cleaning the disc and putting a lense cleaner in (you can purchase them from many stores), it's a disc with a tiny brush attached.

Other than that, try another game and see if anything changes.

Otherwise, take it in for a waranty service.

My playstation has no voices when playing blue ray

You need to check the settings from the menu.

It may be in 5.1 surround sound mode - check the audio setting from the DVD menu and switch between AC3 and the different surround ones.

Hope you get the right audio channel after playing with that menu.

PS3 Audio Output Problems

Inside of most any system there is what I like to call the sound chip, I am not sure what the actuall name ofit is. This sound chip is the final stage of amplification of the circuit board before going out to the any other sound device. I have found in several cases that this single chip goes bad. Depending on what brand it is the cost to replace this single chip can be anywhere from a few dollars up to a little less than $100. As for the being able to hear certain parts of saound what is happening is the chip is divided up into several different channels thus if just a few channels of the chip goes out all you would hear is the background noise or nothing at all depending what you are playing.
