Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

2 Answers

All picture and no sound

Bought a PS3 today. Got it home connected it up, but no sound. We have a 42" Hitachi Plasma. Connected the PS3 using our HDMI lead, but no sound. Even when we were going through the operating instructions there was no sound. We swapped the HDMI lead for the audio leads (red,white,yellow), but  still no sound. We have a brill picture and the setting is 1080i and on channel RGB1 and the setting is DVI-STB. Can you help.



Help!! Just bought a sony playstation 3--have a optical cable hooked to it for audio & hdmi for video. This is the exact same way I had my dvd hooked for my samsung 50" tv & amplifier. No matter what configuration I use from the audio set up screen I can't get any sound! Picture is great! Please help!

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

SOURCE: All picture and no sound

Hi,
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?

HI
Try restarting,check that every connection that should be connected is connected.
Especially the scart connection, they have a tendency to cut out the sound or colours.

I have had this problem once before and it was because my sound output was was set to the (yellow white red) and so what you have to do is go to Sound Settings then go to Audio Output Settings then what your going to choose is HDMI then it will ask for what method and just select Automatic, then you should be able to here sound threw your tv.
