PS3 80 GB - Error Code 8002991

PS3 80 GB played well with the Game, PS2 game & DVD. But when I put in the Bluray disc (tested few new ones as well) it played for 2 minutes and frozed. When I eject it wouldn't even read and gave me a message "video cannot be played Error 80029941" What does that mean? Try to restore original factory and still the same. Can this be fixed?

Desparately need help!

    My system has been working very well for for the last year. I was watching a blu ray (step brothers - brand new), 10 min into the movie it stops and error code 80029941 pops up. Since then, not a single movie or game has loaded. I have restarted, reloaded, restored to default settings, and a fresh update before watching the flick. Thinking that I should just "start over" I discouneccted the system overnight. The next day the title screen opened and had changed color from black to red. It still does not load anything.

    I have the same problem. I have the original 20G system w/ all updates and it played flawless until I tried playing Dark Knight on BD last night and now I can't play any blu-rays without freezing up and getting "This video cannot be played (80029941)" popping up. I tried the soft reset and that didn't work. I disabled the BD internet and that didn't work either.

Hi tomdonnatim,

If your PS3 is brand new, you most likely have to update the system's software to a more current version in order to properly play many Blu-Ray discs.

In order to update your PS3 system:
Go to the home menu, move to the "Settings" tab (the 2nd tab from the far left), scroll down to "System Update". It takes about 5 minutes to download and fully download the update, but it should solve the problem.

More information on the system update can be found below:

The cartilage reader had broke on my Nintendo 64 console. What can I do about this problem then.


Well the same thing had happened with me not too long ago. You could buy a new N64 console then from Luke games and just games or DK oldies. Make sure you get the 4.5 mm game bit tool to open the console up and you can change the cartilage reader from the new one to the old one like I did. Or you could get your old N64 console fixed somewhere then or find someone to fix it. Just buy a new one like I did.

It sounds like you've refused an Xbox Live Update at some point.
You can go into your system options and see if there's an update available.
To check for an update on the Xbox 360 you basically force a new Xbox Live connection:
  1. Press the Guide button (center logo button), bringing up the pop-up menu
  2. Go to Settings
  3. Select System Settings
  4. Select Network Settings
  5. Select Wired Network or the name of your wireless network if you're on wifi
  6. Select Test Xbox Live Connection
  7. Select Yes if prompted to update. If you're not prompted and the test completes successfully, you have the most recent update.
If that doesn't work try this link http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/927749-xbox-360/67807343

Well your disc is officially garbage because it's scratched beyond repair. Don't bother trying to fix your game disc. Do what I did. Go to sellitbroken.com and sell your game to them. They will give you good money for it.
