    do you just mean you have changed the sound to output via the optical cable? thats easily fixed by entering the sound options menu.

    or do you mean you have acidently changed the output resoloution to something higher than your TV can support?

Connect ps3 just sound to surround sound


PS3 has an "optical out" port. Use an optical coaxial cable (something like this one XO Digital Optical Cable 2m 2 Metre Premium Install Series suitable for... ) to connect this to an optical in port on your surround sound receiver/amplifier.

Go into the sound settings on the PS3 and set it to output dolby digital 5.1 from the optical connection.

Switch your surround amplifier to the appropriate source.

There is no sound coming through my HDMI/DVI cable. is there any other way to get sound?


Try going into the audio setup of your PS3 to make sure you have it set to send audio down the HDMI. The PS3 allows you to send the audio down the HDMI, standard, or optical, but you have to change the settings.

Along the same lines, you can use an optical cable to run it to a receiver (or your tv if it has an optical input). Just remember to change it to the optical output.

I don't have the PS3 in front of me right now, but go to this link and it will explain it to you:

Thanks for reading and good luck.

My ps3 has no picture but has sound


you can try this..

leave a testimonial if it works.

if it doesn't write back and we will try another idea I have.

From the PS32_bing.gif 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).

My issue I believe was caused because I had been using a different TV2_bing.gif for a while. Somehow, when I switched back to my original TV, the settings did not automatically reset back.

Good Luck!

Hello,

Adjust the system's audio output settings. These settings are mainly used when the system is connected to audio devices that support digital audio output, such as AV amplifiers (receivers) for home entertainment systems.
1.
Confirm the formats supported by your audio device.
Settings vary depending on supported formats. For details, refer to the instructions supplied with the audio device.
2.
Select in_soundset.gif (Sound Settings) under in_setting.gif (Settings) in the home menu.
3.
Select [Audio Output Settings].
4.
Select the input connector on the audio device. Channel numbers and audio formats that are supported vary depending on the connector in use.

Select audio output formats.
Select all output formats that are supported by the audio device in use. If [Audio Input Connector / SCART / AV MULTI] is selected in step 4, the screen for selecting audio output formats will not be displayed. If [HDMI] is selected, you can also select to automatically set the audio output format. (In this case, the HDMI device must be turned on.)

Check your settings.
You can go back to the previous screen and revise the settings by pressing the in_left_key.gif button.
soundoutput002.jpg 7.
Save your settings.
The audio output settings are saved on the system.
Hints
  • [Linear PCM 2 Ch.] audio is set to be output from all output connectors by default. If you change the audio output settings, audio will be output only from the connectors that were set.
  • If you change the audio output settings, the system will no longer be able to output audio from multiple output connectors at the same time. For example, if your system is connected to a TV via an HDMI cable and to an audio device via a digital optical cable and you switch to [Digital Out (Optical)] under [Audio Output Settings], audio will no longer be output from the TV. To output audio from the TV, switch the setting to [HDMI], or select in_setting.gif (Settings) > in_soundset.gif (Sound Settings) > [Audio Multi-Output] and set the option to [On].
  • If you select [Linear PCM 2 Ch. 88.2 kHz] or [Linear PCM 2 Ch. 176.4 kHz] in step 5, sound may be intermittent or may not be emitted from some audio devices.
  • When using an HDMI cable, only [Linear PCM 2 Ch.] audio will be output from PlayStation®2 and PlayStation® format software. To output Dolby Digital or DTS audio, you must connect the PS3™ system and the audio device using a digital optical cable and switch to [Digital Out (Optical)] under [Audio Output Settings].
  • If a device that is not compatible with the HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection) standard is connected to the system using an HDMI cable, video and/or audio cannot be output from the system.

Hope it helped.

Audio decoding


You will need to tell the PS3 to use the optical cable for digital output in its setup, as well as tell your amp to use the optical cable as the input for whichever 'source' you wish to have associated with the PS3.

Digital audio output not working


There is a setting in the setup menus of your PS3 to enable digital optical output. You will also need to go into the setup of your amp or AV receiver to tell it that you wish to use digital optical audio, and associate it with the PS3 source selection.

Ps3


you might want to try changing the settings settings just go to sound settings>audio output settings and choose the type of cable you're using sfter that select automatic and press X. if that doesnt solve the problem may be you accidentally chage the BD/DVD audio output format. is locate in BD/DVD Settings change both BD/DVD audio output format (HDMI) and BD Audio Output Format (optical Digital) to linear PCM or viseversa try both to see wich one works.
p.s. it can also be a problem with your sound/ hometheater system.

No sound from digital out on PS3 using optical cable


Does the end of the optical cable glow red when hooked up to your PS3 while the PS 3 is powered on? Look at it without the cable plugged into the STR-D845.
