It is a lens problem, the laser lens is either dirty or the lens pickup is faulty.

When you get no disk error, that is usually because of a problem with the optical laser lens that is dirty, faulty or opaque, and will start operating on certain disks better than others.

In that case you will hear disk spinning, whirring and clicking, but the TOC (table of content track at start of CD/DVD will not be read, therefore the error.

Whe this problem is starting you may be able to read only CD, DVD or Blue ray, or for example only DVD-R and not +R , or only to read and not to write and so on. After more prolonged usage , often the unit goes losing the rest of functions, and ends up not reading anything at all.

If instead there is no noise, and disk does not spin at all , then there is a faulty motor, or the motor micro-switch is bad. This situation is far less common than the lens problem.

Try first using a CD/DVD or Blue ray lens cleaner disk to clean the lens. If that does not work you will need to disassemble the drive , and clean lens directly with q tips and isopropyl alcohol, or to replace the CD/DVD lens, or the whole drive unit.

Error code 80029940

It sounds like a disk read error. In the future please supply information on what you were doing win the error occured. i.e. playing a video game, watching a Bluray movie... etc.

Likely that the movie itself is the issue. Try unconnecting your PS3 from the internet reseting and trying to play the video again without your PS3 connected to the internet..

Good luck.

Ps3 wont reconize any discs after freezing

The error code 80710102 you are getting due to a possible connectivity issue of your PS3, since you have not specified in your problem how are you trying to connect your PS3 to internet so i am unable to assist you on that front

For the problem related to discs not playing is becuase ps3 files being corrupt.

1) First take a back up of your data on PS3 - Go to system settings> backup and follow the appropriate settings,i suggest use a usb stick or hard drive to back up your data.

2) Under system settings go to restore ps3 and follow instructions. This will erase all the data on your ps3 and restore it to its factory default, this will restore all the original ps3 files.

3) Once the PS3 install has completed then try updating your PS3 to latest firmware available, now try playing your discs

4) If your ps3 now plays games and dvds go back to system setting> backup, select restore previous back up and all your saved data will be imported from the hard disk, please note: you may not be able to restore any copyright stuff which you could have purchased.

5) If the above steps do not work, kindly send your PS3 for repairs to Sony Customer Service

Hope This Helps

My mt6840 froze up. I couldn't get it to restart. I finally reinstalled Vista but I'm not sure how to unintall all the old software. my disk space is extremely low

just delete it.if any files are being used by vista just update them with the disk.
But what i would do is salvage as much of your work you can, put it on CD or somthing
then switch it off & go into the BIOS when it comes back on.Its F2 or F8 or somthing like that it will tell you,then set the BOOT ORDER so that CD is at the top of the list.
put the vista disk in & reboot it then follow the instructions & just make shure you select the option to format the disk ( C:/LOCAL DRIVE)

if you get stuck E-Mail me.

PS3 Error message...

This is the error code for disk errors: "An error occurred during the start operation. (8001002B)". If the disc is clean, maybe the laser is dirty. Use a lens cleaning CD to give the laser a clean (cheap to buy). You can also try deleting the temporary game data (using Game Data Utility) and reinstall the game.

Panasonic dvd player, wont play error code HO3 keeps coming up, took it back to shop they wont help as cant find receipt

On my DVD-LV50, I was able to re-initialize and fix a different error (error code H05). It might work for you, too.

With no disk in the player, press and hold these buttons for 4 seconds:
  1. Back skip -- [ |<< ]
  2. Pause -- [ || ]
  3. Play -- [ > ]
The screen will go blank, then say "Initialized."

After that, it worked like new.

I hope that helps.

Error Code 07 301

With IBM Thinkpad,it telling you that some hardware is faulty, check your keyboard to make sure nothing is stuck. Also it could also be your trackpoint. Usually, replacing the damaged part gets rid of the error! However there is a bypass key sequence that allows your to continue booting the system even though it gives you error. I'm not 100% sure of what it is but somthing like ESC at boot or F1 or maybe your need the boot to the error page then press ok, then when the system comes up again press f1 or esc then. You'll have to play around with the key sequence a bit. But to get rid of the error forever you need to replace the damaged part! Regards, Armando
