    Same issue... I have Metal Gear Solid 4 & GRID which both work fine, picture and all... but I just recently bought Ghost Recon 2 and in the menu when the disc is selected it has that intro music thing... but when i actually go into the game to play theres no sound at all... i can actually play the game fine in terms of picture and playability etc... but no sound... i really don't understand it... i'm running the PS3 directly to my LCD TV via a HDMI cable so fancy audio set up

    My PS3 Worked fine, then no sound out of no where. I tried the optical cable with other sources and it worked fine. I'm getting a red light from the PS3 though the cable, but no sound. The amp works perfect. I did download the PS3 store to the unit the day before this happened.

Sound issues when connected to PS3 with HDMI

I don't think you can hook a PS3 to 350W projector. You are maxing out the PS3 output. Good luck with it

No sound coming from ps3

Make sure the system volume is up, the TV isn't muted, and the sound cables are completely in their sockets on the TV. If none of that works, the sound card may not have its drivers, or is bad.

On my PS3 no sound is coming out for games only. Menu and dvd sounds work?

Sounds like it could be the output setting for your sound. Depending on what you are running your sound through, it might not support what the ps3 is putting out from a blu-ray game disc. Check audio output settings and try again.

Surround sound on ps3

Most digital inputs are assignable, so go to set-up menu on your receiver and make sure the optical port (opt1 , opt2, etc.) is assigned to the input (vcr, aux, etc.) that you want switch to to listen to the PS3. You may also need to go into the PS3 settings menu and turn the optical to output the Dolby Digital signal. You have to do this with most DVD players, too.

Sound shutting off in the middle of gaming

Is the HDMI lead just just coming slightly loose? Otherwise I can't think of anything else - it's definately the lead. If it isn't because it's coming loose, I'd recommend getting a new lead.
