i have my ps3 hooked up through hdmi and i can see everything fine but i cant hear certain things. ill change the sound settings so i can but then the words and sound are off. what is wrong i need help
I dont know what is this problem but all I can tell is just try to resetthe ps3,turn off the system and when the light is red,put ur finger on the power button then it will beep once ,keep hold ur finger till u listen the 2nd beep,then get ur finger away,and see what will happen,hope that will help.
yeah that didnt work. could it be my cables?jonesy1304
I don't think it is the cable? if it were to be the cables you shouldn't be able to get the video also. Check your audio output settings on the PS3. and set it to HDMI if you are not using another cable for sound
Um, this is just a shot in the dark but what kind of setup do you have? Do you have your sound hooked up to your TV or do you have an HDMI-capable receiver? If you have your sound hooked up to a receiver but it doesn't decode HDMI signals (I have the same scenario), then you'll hear 5.1 but you won't hear the entire 7.1 or DTS HD in certain games until you get one. Is that what you mean? If you have it hooked into your TV, chances are you'll only hear 2.0 or surround sound.Because if all you are doing is listening to is HDMI through your TV you won't hear much except for whatever the TV can produce which is only stereo or a fake surround sound.
Does this info help?
Here's another possibility I just thought of... is your TV's sound muted (your TV main speakers)? As in turned off? If that's the case, turn it back on. See if that helps. Or if its not, and you have it hooked up to a receiver try turning it off and see what happens. If you have no sound, then you have to turn it back on.
