SOURCE: Lost sound from all of

4 power surges and the receiver is still functional? Wow, that's a good quality one. Unfortunately the sound processor didn't survived and, since it's soldered on the mainboard directly, it can't be replaced. There's only one thing you can do - replace the mainboard. But i don't think it's worth it, for the same money you can buy a new one.
So either use it as is or replace it.

How do I fix my PCM-M10 Sony audio recorder? I haven't changed the batteries for a while and it looks like they are corroded. The recorder won't switch on. Is it fixable?


Carefully remove the batteries and remove the corrosion. Outdoor is better to reduce being exposed by breathing it in. After removing corrosion, add new batteries and try again.

LPCM is for digital sources ONLY. Your cassette wouldn't be digital would it? FM, being an internal source on your unidentified receiver CAN'T be wired or configured incorrectly. Crack the manual open and find out how to set the parameters for all the digital inputs, then connect and select an analog input for the tape.

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.

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.

No longer outputs audio from cable box. Code "PCM 2.0" on display after setting volume


PCM just means the type of audio it is. The 2 means stereo! Does the unit have a choice of audio outputs IE digital or linear?

No surround sound from my PS3 through the Onkyo 5100. Video OK


Unfortunately only the higher end Onkyo Reciever pass audio over HDMI for sound. 605,705,805,905 exc. Your reciever will carry Video over HDMI but you will need a digital optical cable for sound.



thanks.

PS3 connection to Yamaha HTR-6130 Av Receiver


URNOTME is right. HDMI is great and all, but wish i would have spent a few more dollars on a unit that supports switching. htr-6130 does pass-through, so you have to use seperate audio connections. really there is no use running HDMI into the receiver and then into the receiver and THEN to the tv. just go straight to the tv, then run your audio either optical (best) or coaxial.

Bad sound through HDMI


Is it only in Games or Movies?

Try checking the cables. (obvious I know but it must be said).

On the XMB (Cross Media Bar), go to settings on the left. Scroll down to "Sound Settings"

Choose "Audio Output Settings", then "HDMI", then "Auto"

If that doesn't fix it then choose manual and the most basic outputs first;
-Linear PCM 2ch. 44.1KHz
and
-Linear PCM 2ch. 48KHz

Depending on your surround sound setup your could get away with other options as well. Fist determine if your setup is 5.1 or 7.1, DTS or Dolby Digital. Then start with the lower KHz settings and work your way up.
