Sound bug and loading problems

5 replies 134 views Edited Jan 6, 2014

I've been playing TLOU since yesterday and all of a sudden the sound went away during gameplay and cutscenes, I'm at 31% and the game functioned normally before.

I read some posts and they said that you have to delete the save data and start over again, so I did that but now the game doesn't even start up properly, I get a black screen after the intro with Sony blabla presents and the naughty dog logo, I can hear the the wind and stuff in the background but nothing happens. And when the game does start I lose the sound in the first mission, it's fine in teh beginning of the mission but when you get out of the car and you have to run the sound stop. I can hear footsteps and screaming but the dialogues are gone, also in the cutscenes.

 

Is someone experiencing the exact same problem as me?

How can I fix this? or when is there a patch to fix this irritating problem?

 

Thanks for the help.

Try the usual stuff:

 

- Clean disk and check for scratches

- Delete game data and update (not the savegames, thats not necessary!) and reinstall

- Disconnect your PS3 from the internet

- Which PS3 update are you using? Some people are reporting problems with 4.53, I don't have any issues with it though. If you are not on the newest version, try that

- Try another game disc

 

Other than that: Never heard of this issue, sorry

I did most of these things but it didn't work, I'm using the 4.53 update too and I don't think that's the problem, I tested some other games and they work just fine. The disc does have a scratch on it, i don'tknow how it got there.

Then try to get rid of that scratch, by either getting another disc (at least for testing if that is the issue) or by trying to repair it.

 

I once had a Tekken 3 for PS2 which was completely destroyed, there was a really deep and bad scratch on it so I went to a shop of a friend and he told me to try "Displex" which is actually for removing scratches from your mobile phone screen. As I didn't have much to lose anyway, I just got it and tried it - and it was amazing! The scratch was gone completely, and the game was working fine after that. It's just a tip. I think you can order that stuff on amazon for a few bucks, but get the right one, I think there are different types of Displex, back in the day it was only one.

 

Good luck!

Thanks for your reply

 

I bought a new copy today and it works fine, no problems with it for now, I don't know if that's going to change but I hope not.

I would say it was the scratch that ruined it for me.
