SOURCE: wont play ps3 games

I had this problem and it really made me mad. I tried re formatting , reset settings and nothing. Then I tried using some air sprayer that people use on computer key board and I sprayed in where the disc goes and now it works perfectly. Perfectly!

you must connect the controller to your PS3 with a USB Cable, this will sync the controller with your console and you will be able to use it wirelessly after this. good luck!

To reset your PS3 back to manufacture conditions you will have to go to the Settings page, locate System Settings, run down untill you reach Restore PS3 System. Click yes, and voila.

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.

I put a movie on my playstation pirrana 3D watched it in 2D and now when I try to play a game or watch a movie it comes up with a warning saying things like you my experience discomfort whilst watching 3d...

If you can see the screen for the PS3 dashboard before playing the game I would suggest trying to reset all your video display settings on the PS3 first then try it again. If you changed any settings on your tv try setting them to defaults. The PS3 system has an auto video adjustment system built into it and sometimes it has a brain fart and gets locked up on a specific setting and doesn't want to change back by itself. One way to try for resetting the video settings on the system is turning off the power switch on the back of the system with it on instead of the regular power button on the front.
Good Luck and Happy Gaming!

PS3 keep turns off when playing games is not a new problem. But don't waste money to find someone to fix it yet! It may be a minor issue that you can be fixed by yourself. Remember, you are not the only one to suffer this problem! Because I had help so many people to fix the same problem now. You are so lucky to be there. I share a guide for you - It make me like a pro to help my friends and many people. It is too expensive to send back to Sony repair if your machine is out of warranty!
I had solved many PS3 problems after bought this guide. The author of the book is really kind and helpful to his customers. May be you can buy it and share what you have learned !

Ps3 games won't load. it sounds like the disc is just tryin to spin then it does play after a reset to factory settings and i have to keep reseting it before it plays every time.

No spin or slow spin is related to the lens. The lens detects the disc and spins it. If the lens is dying these symptoms occur and the only solution is a new lens. This will run you about 50-60 dollars.

Not loading games , ok with normal cds

Try resetting or restoring your system. WARNING: This will likely erase all of your saved games, demos, & etc. If you choose to do a restore then shut off your PS3, unplug it for a minute or 2, put the plug back in, hold down the power to you hear it beep 4 times: 1,1, 2 beeps, then let off the power button. You should get a screen that gives you options of restoring your console and etc. From there you can make the choice you desire. Sometimes it takes several tries of power-cycling your console to get it to do the proper beeps and then go to the screen with the options.

I got ps3 fat 60g,i updated it to firmware 3.01,and i still play with my old games but when i bought uncharted2 among thieves my ps3 turn off by itself. should i do

Try doing a system reset. This will not erase your memory or anything on games just on tv settings and all. Push your power button down and keep it down. If it doesn't work do it again. When it beeps 3 times it should have reset itself. If that doesn't work please request help again with update on it not working and that you reset it.

It says there's not enough memory to run prototype for ps3

Did you try to reset you memory card that you are using? Sometimes even if we delete the other saved data in our memory and did not reset sometimes it didn't delete automatically that is why we need to reset it sometimes. Also try to see if your memory is enough to hadle the new game you bought.
