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.

My PS3 wont play any movies but still plays video games???


Ok so its 60GB its definatly alright to play movies and all sorts, but if you are that desperate to watch movies then you may want to reset to factory settings just access settings and look for reset console, then it would start from square 1 you have to make your accounts and earn your trophies again but if you want to watch movies desperatly then recommed you do that or go to game settings in the game column and have a poke in the folders because there might be a few things in there or go to the film column and check for setting sin there or go to the settings column and check for film settings in there its nothing to do with the updates thats for sure because ive done the same as you but havent played the game in a while but im still able to watch films

Ps3 plays video games, not bluray movies or dvds


I would start with a firmware update (2.60) and also a full system restore. That should fix the problem. Let me know. I'm a PS3 expert!

Bluray wont read my ps3 games on my ps3


the bluray laser is bad. The PS3 has two lasers – one to read bluray, another to read DVDs. Games are in the bluray format… as well as your… well, bluray movies.
Or, this might be the issue.
If your PS3 is under warranty, send it in for repair. Describe the issue, and they will give you an RMA. I once had my PS3 repaired and back to me within the week.

I just finished watching a movie on my ps3 and now it wont read any discs


First try putting the movie you watched when this happened, back into the PS3, see if you are able to watch this movie and if it reads this particular disk... if it will, contact the company and tell them that your PS3 isn't reading any of the disks, they will send you a box and repair your PS3 free of charge and send it back to you in about 3 weeks.

Hope this helps :)
