I have the same problem on and off. Its been happening since about the 2nd to last update. Sometimes in normal 1 player mode i'll steal a car and there's no engine sound for about 5mins. GTA IV is a great game...but its also the most bugged game in history

It could be that you have your audio output settings for another cable, you can change this to the one your using under audio input/output settings on the ps3 menu.

Having a few issues with my new 55' Samsung qled series 7 tv. I bought it to play games but I get blackouts every 10min playing my PS4. Doesn't do it with regular tv just PS4 pro. Really frustrating

Sounds like an issue with your display connection. Make sure the HDMI cable you are using is in perfect working condition and that both ends are firmly connected to television/console.
Hope it helped!

Darksiders sound but no video

Make sure that your computer passes the minimum system requirements of the game. You can find the system requirements of the game here:

If your computer passes all, you should update your video driver. It has something to do with the graphics thing. Media player has nothing to do with darksiders. Each software has it's own system requirements. Media player does not need much from your computer which is a different story when you play darksiders.

Hope this helps.

I have a harman kardon 7300 an the sound come an go some time it sound like is breaking up i shut it down for 5mins an it goes away it play for about 10min an it starts again

Hi edouble6785,
This symptom is commonly caused by faulty output IC. This go to an overload and overheat due to leak after a period of playing. To isolate the trouble, disconnect all the input and speakers at the back panel. If the symptom is still there, high chance that the output IC is defective.
Hope I helped you.
Have a nice day!
Thanks for using Fixya.

My ps3 is making a clicking sound and keeps


The cause may never be known, manufacturing defect...perhaps it was just its time. Your playstation's optical drive has gone bad. The only thing that can be done to fix it is simply replacing the drive.

You can purchase replacements from many places just do a quick search online.

Thank you for choosing Fixya!

Hello, my ps3 will not always read ps3 games - all other media it reads fine, i have to insert the disk and eject over and over until it detects it? Also my play TV starts flickering within 10min of it...

Inserting and ejecting the game over and over will not cause your PS3 to read games. The bluray laser has gone out so it can no longer detect the bluray games and will need to be replaced to fix the problem. This can be done by any professional game console repair shop.

The game wont play graphics just sound

the x300 se is not a gaming card! Especially for new games such as cod waw. Get a Nvidia 9600gt to play that game reasonably!
