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

Thank u you are a life saver XD
Had the same problem and that worked perfectly, thank you
Same issue. Played GTA V last night, worked great. Today, no in-game sound. Followed the steps above and also power cycled my AV receiver. Worked great! Thanks!
It totally worked. Thank you.
Thank you! That worked, but all I did was unselected HDMI, exited..then reselected HDMI, went through the rest of tne automatic settings saved and now im good to go. Thanks again. ( I did move to another tv )
