Sounds like the laser just took a dive.

You can try updating the firmware to 2.76 but 95% of the time the laser needs to be swapped.

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.

Make sure the ps3 can run those kind of formats. I haven't played with my ps3 for a while now, but from the last time I had check it couldn't run those formats. Just check on Playstations website again to make sure. Example. PS3 doesn't run .ram files but on the laptop it uses real media player to run .ram.

PS3 frozen when playing games : That means hardware problems inside your console : Mostly are CPU overheat but actually you can't just cool it down by turn off a while. You need some killer methods to fix it. But do you know it's just waste your time and money if you send to somewhere repair - because the same problems will be back after then. The best way is to learn the repair techniques of yourself.
There is a PS3 DIY Repair Guide: The author use text and video to show you how to use your hands to open your console and do some maintenance and fixes, at last you are amazing that why you can do that yourself. The best part is you can help your friends too!

The disk-drive has malfunctioned.

Search online for a professional "data recovery service".
For a significant fee, they can repair your disk-drive,
just long-enough to copy your files to a new disk-drive.

If it still has a valid WARRANTY, exercise the warranty to get it repaired/replaced.

If the warranty has expired, then open the case, remove the disk-drive, buy a new "compatible" disk-drive, connect it, and thus "revive" your external storage device.

I posted to your problem with a similar one. I was able to get my PS3 to work by:

1.) Powering down both the PS3 and ViewSonic LCD
2.) Unplugging the power cables to both PS3 and LCD
3.) Waiting at least 10 or more seconds
4.) Plugging in the power cables to both PS3 and LCD
5.) Turning on the ViewSonic LCD
6.) Turning on the PS3 and holding down the power button until the beep

After this sequence I heard the bootup audio and the menu appeared on the screen- which detected the HDMI connection to my LCD.

Very odd.. I've had my PS3 in the same place for months and just today this happened.

I wanted to post my success. Best of luck!

PS3 wont play disc's


If you have problem with loading your disk or some kind of media a most common error is Disk Read Error,or in a short way DRE.
Ps3 Laser is a very precise mechanism and optic and also a well none proble for the all machine right now on the Market.
Sony had the same problem before with PS2 and tried to fix the same issue all ready but without any luck at all.Actually i do believe is Part of the Market Strategy making the laser not to strong so people can buy new laser and keep the techical support alive.Most common error on Ps3 is DRE and some other like power supply Failure or Hd defective.
What is sad actually the fact the laser is Collapsing onthe spot.
On the ps2 you have some time to realize the laser is bad since the machine start not reading well or freezing during the game.On ps3 the laser stop working and that`s it.
I suggest to replace laser or try to clean first because sometimes if you are lucky the laser start working again
