HI,

This error actually indicates a fault with the particular disc or blueray disc you are trying to play.

There is only one home remedy:
Power the system off and then turn it on after 10mins.Try to play the disc again if you still face the issue then turn the "Super-White" setting to "Off" Try playing the disc again.

If you still face the same issue then you will have to return it and get another one.

Thank You for using fixya.

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.

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 !


spatnz

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.
