Check the settings on receiver in the SETUP menu / HDMI / Audio. Here you can choose Amp (sound goes from the speakers connected to receiver), TV (receiver is muted and sound is routed via HDMI to TV) and Amp+TV (sound goes from speakers and also to TV).
Also check in OPTION menu / Signal Info that receiver is receiving sound in recognized format.

Does it work without PS3 attached?
When receiver turns off, it is usually due to badly connected/configured speakers. Try powering on the receiver without speakers.

If it is not working even without any cables attached, you can check the connectors (especially the speaker ones) for little pieces of cable strands which might short-circuit the connectors.
If nothing like that is found, the short-circuit is inside the receiver and you should contact service center for repair.

Perhaps you check out master 'power supply' and find bad 'capacitor' (usually). Click sound is because 'stand by power' is fine.

First disconnect all speaker cables and all input cables (optical, HDMI, everything expect power). If receiver powers off itself immediately even without anything connected, it is faulty and you need to send it for repair.

If it works without cables, then you probably have bad cables and/or short-circuit in the speaker connection and receiver is turning off to prevent damage. Double-check your connection and that no speaker "+" cable has a contact with any "-" cable or connector. Even one little strand of cable touching the opposite polarity connecter is enough to cause a short-circuit.

Normally you would to the TV settings under audio you would have to disable the tv audio and point it to your receiver I assume you have a surround sound. Make sure you are also using the right audio cable RCA or digital optic cable

Maybe the problem is with your speakers. Shorted speakers or speakers that are being over-driven can cause the receiver to shut down and possibly be damaged.
