simply unplug--then replug--your HDMI cable. Or also go into the audio setup menu and reapply the "automatic" setting for HDMI to get the sound to work. I don't know if Sony can do anything about this or not in a firmware upgrade, but what it can do is try to simplify the labeling on some of the sound settings.
Let me know
its the tv dude cuz i put the yellow white and red on a small old sony tv and it made the same noise and everything but then i changed it into another t.v. about 73 inches and it worked fine with an hdmi change the t.v.
1-HDMI is available in several versions. The PLAYSTATION 3 is
compatible with HDMI version 1.3 or higher, which will take full
advantage of Blu-ray Disc™ high-definition video. There are also "Type
A" and "Type B" connectors. The PLAYSTATION 3 uses the 19-pin Type A
connector, which will allow resolutions up to 1080p. The HDMI cable
is not included with the PLAYSTATION 3. If you are using an HDMI to DVI
converter, you may wish to remove this adaptor.
2- The resolution output (i.e., picture quality) of the PLAYSTATION 3 will depend on three factors: The type of cable used and the inputs available on the TV or display monitor. The
maximum resolution the TV or display monitor can support. The
PLAYSTATION 3 can output two types of resolution: HD and SD. Refer to
the TV or display monitor's owner's manual to check which video modes
are supported. The maximum resolution programmed into the source
material (movie or game). Refer to the software packaging for
information on maximum resolution details or contact the publisher
3- Try connecting with the supplied AV Cable
instead of the HDMI to see if you can get a successful installation.
This will help determine where the problem may be with your particular
HMDI setup and/or equipment.
4- Disconnect any coaxial cables
at the point closest to the television. Signals sent through coaxial
cables may cause interference with the sound and picture outputted from
the PLAYSTATION 3 which results in buzzing and humming noises from your
display and speakers.
I have had this problem once before and it was because my sound output was was set to the (yellow white red) and so what you have to do is go to Sound Settings then go to Audio Output Settings then what your going to choose is HDMI then it will ask for what method and just select Automatic, then you should be able to here sound threw your tv.
since you bought this console used, it maybe set to HDMI 1080p/ 1080i/720p output(by the original owner) and if your TV does not support this there will be no picture, the only way to lower the output resoloution is to get into the options menu but to do that you will need a freind with a tv that supports whatever resoloution its been set too.
