    New Update Causing No Sound Issues?

    Hey all,

    So about 10-15 minutes ago I turned on my PS3, XMB sounds were normal (in-game audio had been fine a bit earlier as well) and the signed in and downloaded/installed the new system update. So after the system update, now my start-up PS3 sound, XMB sound, and all audio in-game is mute. Nothing at all. I fired up two different games and no sound whatsoever. I unplugged the power cord, the HDMI cable, I've done the holding-the-button thing, etc., etc. and still... no sound.

    Did this happen to anybody else, either with this update or a past update?

    If so (or even if not, I guess) does anyone know some kind of workaround or possible reason as to why this is happening? If you're just going to say something anti-constructive, don't say it at all, because I've been able to solve issues before fairly easily and quickly where people have suggested "Oh, it's gotta be dead, then," and I have a feeling that this is probably the same. I'd appreciate if anyone can point me in the right direction or offer any advice here.

    Did you try restoring your system. Of course making sure to back it all up first.

    I personally haven't run across any issues yet.

    I didn't experience this, my sound was fine. Did you check the volume settings? Maybe for some reason they got changed..

    Nevermind, I figured out what it was... of ALL things, my TV's speakers themselves decided to die at the EXACT moment I decided to update my PS3 system. I literally hooked up my TV elsewhere and no sound, it's literally busted and only a few months old. Fortunately I have a slightly bigger HDTV elsewhere that I was able to replace it with and all is back to normal in the world. The odds.

    Ah, man, sorry to hear about the tv, but I'm glad it's not the update that messed it up.
