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.

Can play games but not blu ray movies error code 80029940 comes up "the video cannot be played"have searched for this number cannot find please help !

The error code 80029940 refers to a disk read error.

Does this happen with all blu-ray disks or just some. Also try to play a DVD do you get the same error or do they play fine.

Also let me know me know the model of PS3 you have and what games you have play fine. This will help me see where the problem is at.

Hello,

Try and play with some setting under display and dvd section. I turned off the "Super White" option under display, cannot remember the exact text, but it worked for me.

Hope it helped.

What video are you trying to play? Usually I get this message when it's a format the PS3 doesn't support.

Stoped playing blueray films and certain games an error code sometimes appears 80029940


That error is a read error, which means that either your drive is having issues, or the disks are faulty.

With that said, if you have several legit blu-ray films, and they all don't work, I would say that your blu-ray drive is malfunctioning. If that's the case, you'll have to get Sony to repair the unit for you.

The only other thing I could suggest is to try unplugging the unit from the wall for 10 seconds and plugging it back in, see if a power cycle helps you out.

Good Luck!

Ps3 60gb won't play blue ray movies


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.
