    can you try and replicate the problem?

  • Ekse Sep 05, 2009

    let me know the full error code.. thanks

  • Ekse Sep 05, 2009

    Probably not, can you get the error code for me?

  • Ekse Sep 05, 2009

    So can you tell me what happens when you attempt to play a game or a movie?

  • Ekse Sep 05, 2009

    does the console actually work? does it try to read the disc? Are you able to navigate the menus in the PS3?

    do a system update and let me know what happens if it helps or not.

    http://www.us.playstation.com/Support/Sy...

  • Ekse Sep 05, 2009

    The page I sent you .-http://www.us.playstation.com/Support/Sy...
    has the instructions.


  • Ekse Sep 05, 2009

    okay

  • Ekse Sep 05, 2009

    The issue is most likely your Blue Ray drive, since it doesn't do anything when a disc is inserted the lens is probably dirty or the drive has failed.

    Are you in warranty? outside of warranty the sony repair is around 149usd. Please let me know if your in warranty or not, I will provide you with instructions once I know.


  • Ekse Sep 05, 2009

    Can you first check if the machine is in warranty or not?

  • Ekse Sep 05, 2009

    Alright, you can buy a Blue Ray Lens cleaner disc from a local store, or if you feel confident that you can take it apart and put back together, then I can send you instructions on how to take it apart open up the blue ray drive, and clean it with a qtip and alcohol 70%, or water, I've personally used water a few times myself.

    IF the blueray lens cleaner didn't help, then follow the instructions below.

    Heres a take apart quide. you need to get the blue ray drive out of the unit and then open up the blue ray drive.

    http://www.llamma.com/PS3/repair/PS3_dis...

    after you have the blueray drive out, you have to open it up aswell, probably has 4 screws in the bottom of the drive and then it will open up.

    Here is a video on how to open up the blue ray drive and clean the lens with a qtip. use the wet end to wipe it a few times then dry it with the other end.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7O-8NzYHr...




  • Ekse Sep 05, 2009

    I'm not sure if it will.... I would recommend a Blue Ray Laser lens cleaner disc or to that direction.

    Something like this one:

    GameDr Premier Laser Lens Cleaner (DVD & Blu-ray compatible)
    http://en.kioskea.net/guide/631257585-ga...


  • Ekse Sep 05, 2009

    I did send you a solution to attempt. Clean the laser lens with a Qtip and alcohol if the Laser cleaning disc doesn't help.


  • Ekse Sep 05, 2009

    I do not understand why you rejected the solution before even attempting it!

  • Ekse Sep 05, 2009

    Please accept the solution now, you can post a new problem free of charge since you have the unlimited plan after you have attempted this. we will be here to assist you.

There is a fault with the laser unit in the PS3. This is similar to the PS2 DRE problems and usually replacing the laser fixes it.

SOURCE: hi there,my playstation no longer plays bluray

You need to replace the laser.

BUT before you try doing this you should try:

updating the PS3 firmware to the latest version 2.76

Restoring the PS3 to Factory via the System Settings menu.

If that doesn't work you need the KES-400A laser.

SOURCE: my ps3 has just started to stop playing blu ray films after 20min

the laser is starting to go bad in the dvd drive. It takes more power for the drives laser to read and play a blu ray movie then it does to play a dvd game.

You can either replace the laser if you have the technical knowledge to take the dvd drive apart, or just replace the drive. You can usually find either one on ebay.

SOURCE: i got an error code 8001050f on my ps3 it wont work on or offline

This is a known problem with the recent update.
As many others have reported this bug occurs when you are supposed to earn a trophy and nothing happens. Somehow user accounts get corrupted :

- Trophy Syncing won't work (Error 8022D11)
- PSN games tell us that the system is not activated.
- Other games will not work either, telling that the data was created by another user and we would have to restart the game.

The only way to get rid of this problem is by deleting the current user and creating a new one with the same name. This however ruins most of the save games because the games won't accept them as ours!! Here is some gathered information :

- It can happen with every games supporting trophies.
- It happens since 2.50 and still happens with 2.52.
- There still is no official statement that this bug exists!

HERE is one link for more info...

Sony Network is experiencing sporadic outages in certain areas today.
It may be a scheduled system upgrade or maintenance - but be assured you are not the only one facing this issue.
No UP time has been announced by Sony - they are working to get the system up and running as soon as possible.
The problem is not on your end.
Keep trying to connect.

Hi i get an error code of 8001050f when i go to play my video games can you tell me how to fix it so i can play my games


go to the play stations web site to find out what the code means.

if your ps3 has a message of trophy registration error sony will say you need to turn in your ps3 for service this is not true i fixed mine by saving my game data on a thumbstick then deleted the game save data shut off my ps3 then turned the main power (the switch in the back) off for a few minutes to allow the power to dissipate. Then i restarted the ps3 copied my game save data back and my COD modern warfare 2 played like a champ!
i did lose all of my trophies but the game saved data allowed for 12 percent of them to come back apon completing one special op mission.

My PS3 froze last night during a game of Black Ops, since then my console's decided it doesn't want to play games anymore, Here's a list of what it will play; Music and Films saved to the HDD Music...


There are many reasons to cause PS3 frozen when playing games. Do you know, it's 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!

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!

No surround sound, when playing blue ray films using ps3


Hi there,

Im guessing you are using a HDMI cable,

HDMI cables struggle to carry audio...

you will need a componet cable, this is basicly the same quality, and all you do is plug the audio cable part into the surround sound system and done.

Hope this helps

PS3 region code


Yes you can.. Blu-ray discs are not region coded.. However if you trying to play a DVD or any other format disc then it would not be possible since these are region coded.. However the PS3 games are region free.. can be bought from anywhere and played anywhere..

Hope this helps!!

MY japoneese ps3


The pal ps2 games and dvds will not play on a Japanese ps3 due to region coding. You can play all ps3 games and blu ray films because they do not use region coding. Some games will also play differently on a ps3, for example, Uncharted: Drakes Fortune (I highly recommend the game) will not have any blood on a Japanese ps3. The region coding feature can not be changed/modified. I would recommend returning Japanese ps3 and purchasing a European model instead if that is possible. Bon chance.
