Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
My new ps3 60 (BDay present from my hus) will not play blue ray movies. But it will play regular dvd's, even copied ones. The problem is when we put in a Blueray movie it freezes within the first minute or first 20 minutes, and an error code comes up 80029941, or 80029940, or 80029960. I have looked-up all these codes and it varies how to solve. My husband is looking for the demon juice to help him cope. Please I am reaching out to you to. SOS
It's your blu-ray drive.
They last only 1-3 years with average use. It's a Sony defect.
The laser is three part (cd / dvd / blu-ray). The blu-ray is usually first to go.
