Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

Sound shutting off in the middle of gaming

I have my PS3 connected via HDMI to my LCD Samsung TV. Every now and again my sound shuts off and for me to get it back I have to unplug the HDMI cord from the back of the PS3 and plug it back in and its back on again. Anyone know what's up with that?

    Mine also goes out and comes back during game play! You can hear people chatting but not the sounds from the game. It goes out from anywhere to 30 secs to a couple mins. Really annoying. I have bought a new HDMI cable and that hasn't fixed it either. Only other thing I can figure is it might be the HDMI port in back of the PS3. Only way to find out, I suppose, would be playing with out the HDMI cord to see if sound goes out.. If not.. I guess it's my HDMI port?

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.

Was working fine, now no sound via HDMI cable. TV audio works fine from other source.


It appears that your HDMI output is going out. It is very common.

You will need to upgrade (if you do not have) to an digital output for sound while using the HDMI cables. I understand that once you go HDMI there is no going back. Keep in mind that those component cables look pretty good, the gold platted ones. In case things don't work out.

You can try to reset the factory settings:


Press and hold the power button until the systems shuts off. (wait 2 seconds)

Press and hold the power button again until you here 3 beeps. Let go.



It should ask you to connect your controller via usb and press the PS button in

the middle of your controller. There will be a menu with 6 options. Try 1-4.


Keep in mind that certain options will erase precious data from your hard drive. Be sure to back up your data first.

Ps3 HDMI cable no audio


You might want to try another HDMI cable...the one you have may have a short in it. You can find HDMI cables for really cheap online so it's not a big deal to buy on eor two more as back up. Also, try changing the audio settings with in the BluRay or DVD itself. Sometimes the movies can default to an unsuppotred audio format.
