Re: PS3 sound not working

Just now the same thing happened to me. After installing a new game the sound also went off. I have the PS3 hooked to a Sony Bravia M4200 via HDMI. I restored to default settings and the sound came back on after I turned off and on the TV. Apparently both devices have to be "rebooted" in order to regain sound. Wierd.

Re: PS3 sound not working

Hey guys good work on the self trouble shooting very comendable.

Always try the sound settings in the settings menu, as this is always a good place to start.

Also leave the restore default settings for a last result as it will remove things from your console like your network setup and PSN sign in details.

Can be annoying.

 

Ras.

Re: PS3 sound not working

My sound went off while I was playing BF3. At first I thought it was just Battlefield 3 being a dumb glitchy game but it turned out my saved avi movie files were not working either. My South Park episodes were on mute. I tured it off for about 30 minutes to an hour and when it came back on my sound was working. 

 

Sooo... I dont know... I have had my playstation for about 5 months, my other playstation I got like 5 years ago still works fine so I am hoping I wont see this problem again. Maybe I shouldnt play my playstation 18 hours a day lol. Nah my other playstation had more life in it than my honda, game on!
