My PS3 has no Sound? [Solved/Closed]

Since we moved to Malaysia, I've been having though time with my PS3, I have picture, but no sound. All cables are in tact. What should I do..? Please someone HELP!!!!!

After doing some searches, I find that:

From the PS3 main menu:

1. Settings->Sound Settings->Audio Output Settings

2. Change it from HDMI to Digital Out (Optical). I do NOT have optical hooked up on my PS3, so if you have it hooked up, you may want to unhook it.. probably shouldn't matter.

3. I left what was defaulted: "Linear PCM 2 Ch. 44.1 kHz" and 48kHz

4. Right on the D pad (X selects/unselects options) to move to the next screen.

5. A confirmation page, hit X to Enter, saving the changes.

6. Start up a game, you shouldn't hear any sound (as expected)

7. Exit the game, then go back to Audio Output Settings and switch back to HDMI. I selected "Automatic" for "method for setting the output format."

8. A confirmation page, hit X to Enter, saving the changes.

9. Start up a game, you should now hear audio with your game (once again). The problem is most likely caused from having switched your PS3 to a different TV for a period of time.

Hope that I will work for you

Unplugging the tv from power and replugging it again helped me. The rest of the suggested things (except waiting a day, causee this happened to me for the second time) Didnt work for me. I have a Sharp tv and a ps3 slim 500gb

I honestly thought this wasn't going to work as it just sounds crazy. But it actually did work for me :D
