It is a LG Flatron M3201C-BA

I plug in my PS3 Console hdmi and get video but how do I get audio out of it? I have a logitech speakers z506, and a computer. Is it possible to get sound? If so can please explain how?

Here is a photo of the back

Please help, Thank you

That doesn't seem possible. Can you connect speaker directly to the PS3?

If the photo is of the rear of the monitor, then the sockets marked A/V Out on the right hand side of the photo would appear to be the speaker sockets, for an external speaker setup.
Have you looked for a Manual for your monitor???
