Dolby Surround stopped working

For some reason my dolby digital 5.1 sound stopped working in this format. The receiver digital connection is working fine, tested with another PS3. What controls the sound in the PS3? What do I need to replace to get it working again?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

hey Chad try this first if you have not already done so. PS3 loses sound when using optical lead. No sound on bluray movies. Sound to tv or surround sound is not working.

1. Turn ps3 off at back of unit

2. turn back on ( red light comes on)

3 press and hold finger on on off switch ( front)

4 wait for two beeps and a further double beep

5 on screen 6 options

6 choose option 2

7 add your details then when complete sound should be ok

Apparently not an uncommon problem. check here and and here as well hate to see you trying to fix hardware if it may be a settings issue. good Luck and let us know
