Re: wont play games

Check for updates on the sony website. if u dont have the ps3 connected to the net then get on a computer that is and use a USB flashdrive and transfer the update to it and then plug it into the PS3.

For some reasom my ufc2010 all the suden wont play and gives me a error code of 80010514 can anybody help me

Hello Chadhughes20,

Basically, what is occuring is the corruption of game disc recognition and execution. If you will notice, in 90% of all cases, the drive will still play DVD and even Blu Ray movies with no problems. When trying to start a game however, the title, sooner or later, will receive the error.

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.

PS3 Error message...

This is the error code for disk errors: "An error occurred during the start operation. (8001002B)". If the disc is clean, maybe the laser is dirty. Use a lens cleaning CD to give the laser a clean (cheap to buy). You can also try deleting the temporary game data (using Game Data Utility) and reinstall the game.
