If the audio function is not working properly on your PS3, there are several steps you can take to properly fix these problems quickly at home without sending it out to Sony and paying over $100 for repairs. Here are some simple troubleshooting steps to help you identify what may be causing your PS3 audio problems and fix them.

1) If you have no sound at all, you should check and make sure that the mute button has not been pressed on the television remote. This may sound like an obvious thing to check, but you would be surprised how often this is the cause of no sound issues with the PS3.

2) Next, make sure all your audio cables are properly connected between the TV and the PS3. A simple loose cable can cause sound issues as well.

3) Check the audio settings for your Playstation 3 and make sure they are properly set and also set correctly for the type of television you are using (HDTV versus standard).

4) Check and make sure the disc you are using is not copy protected or otherwise unsuitable for use in your PS3. Try another disc if you are unsure.

5) Make sure that you are using the correct cables to connect your TV to your Playstation 3. If you have recently changed the cables you are using, this can often be the source of the problem.

If none of these five steps work, you may still be able to fix your PS3 at home with the help of a good PS3 home repair guide

Surround sound for ps3 with a hdmi cable..

you need a HDMI connection for your stereo. HDMI is an all in one cable so if you don't get your sound in/out you need to hook up to just the RCA's, if you get a reciver that has an HDMI input you will solve this. then you go HDMI to Reciver then HDMI to TV

Try looking on your AV Cable there is a setting for HDTV and TV if you have a High Definition tv use that setting but by the sounds of your issue i would say you dont and would go with the regular TV setting. Its right on the neck of the AV cable where it plugs into the game console. Let me know if this works for you.
