Greetings,

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

Regards.

If you don't know where you go, get back where you come.....

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
Thankyou!!!
