SOURCE: Error 80029906 and error 80029941 on playstation 3

I had similar problems with my console. I could play DVDs fine. Games would start, usually, and then freeze. Blue ray movies would give me the 80029906 error.

I tried every fix I could find on the Internet, but nothing helped. My system is no longer under warrantee, and spending $148 to get a refurb back from Sony, regardless of the actual issue, bothered me to no end.

I finally found a company, videogame911.com, which specializes in game system repair. Basically, I went to their website and created a service request, then shipped my PS3 to them (3 days with UPS Ground). The same day they received it, I got an update from them with their inspection results (bad blu-ray player) and an estimate for repair and return shipping costs. The repair and return shipping were $154. I authorized the repair and paid online, and they had my console fixed and shipped back the next day.

The whole process took about a week to complete, my console is working like a champ, and most importantly, I got MY console back.

Granted, the cost was a couple of bucks higher then what Sony would have charged me. However, given that the problem could have been something else, such as a dirty lens or something, there was a good possibility that the actual repairs could have been cheaper. And, unlike with Sony, I didn't loose a single file off of my hard drive.

Hope that helps.

SOURCE: Upgrade to ps3 firmware 3.01 and now it won't play games.

The error code is actually one of two things, a) a faulty sector on the internal hard drive, or b) a faulty installation of software/firmware, both iterations actually coincide with eachother. If the hard drive suffers a faulty sector ( a section of damaged space on the drive that data may have been written to that no longer is readable), an installation may still be processed, and even work, but the error can cause some serious side effects, such as option b. If your PS3 has installed an item incorrectly, including firmware, it is in high risk of receiving this error.
Basically, what is occuring is the corruption of game disc recognition and execution. If you will notice, in 90% of all cases, the drive will still play DVD and even Blu Ray movies with no problems. When trying to start a game however, the title, sooner or later, will receive the error.
1) Ensure that your internet connection is stable. If you are using a wireless connection, make sure your signal is at least a solid 80%. If not, make the proper adjustments until it is.
2) Dust your machine regularly. Any PS3 owner will tell you that the Playstation 3 is a dust magnet. Just run a dry cloth over it every couple days, and you should be fine. This will help prevent heat issues and shorts that may occur.
3) When installing firmware and/or software, make sure you follow the instructions. Even if you have installed 6 versions prior, each one is different, and may require additional steps. Save yourself the headache and just follow them, it only takes a minute or so longer to do it right.
Lets sum it all up, the error is not hardware related and is caused due to corruption of firmware. Restoring you PS3 will not roll back the firmware, and unfortunately will not fix the issue 9 times out of 10. If you are receiving this error, contact Sony for a replacement unit.

My system plays cd's dvd's but when i put a ps3 game in the disc wont show therefor im not allowed to play any games by disc


The Playstation 3 is a wonderful video game console, however, with heavy usage, the laser does eventually burn out. The first signs of the laser starting to burn out is that your game will start freezing during game play. Eventually the game will stop reading altogether (even though movies sometimes still work). Eventually movies will stop working and the whole laser will eventually die.

The following website sells PS3 lasers and also performs repairs:

Game freezes during online play. now it wont read my games


This is very common. You have a bad BluRay laser diode. Discs can sometimes transfer a very small amount of static electricity. That can short out a laser. You will need to get the laser replaced by a tech or send it back to Sony if it's still in warranty.
Thank you!

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.
