Ps3 sound skipping

[ Edited ]

Hi. When the load up tune comes on my sound is jumping. This is also happening when I'm playing a movie that I have uploaded or when watching anything through the iplayer and the other apps. Disk games work fine with no problems and same with DVD. Can anyone help. Thanks

Re: Ps3 sound

Hi scissett,

 

I would advise running through the Safe Mode options. Give the guide a good read first as some of the options will delete data from your console.

 

Please let me know how you get on.

Yeah I will look through it. It's working fine off a disk just seems to be when playing a file I've loaded up ie a film will this still be the same solution. Thanks

Re: Ps3 sound skipping

If discs play ok but files from the HDD are distorted then the may be an issue with the drive its self. Do you have any downloaded games on the system?

No not yet, I've tried a demo but that had the same effect with the jumping of sound. It's Probly only a month old the ps3. Is it a Job for the store I got it from or Sony?

Re: Ps3 sound skipping

You can DIY replace the hard drive yourself very easily and it won't void the warranty.

Will probably be much quicker than sending it off too :smileywink:

All you need is a 2.5" SATA hard drive at 5400RPM which can be found on amazon or in any PC shop.

For replacing the drive there are many YouTube guides, such as this one for slim consoles:

And this one for fat consoles:
