My ps3 slim won't play games and blue ray disk but I can still play eve movies on it, please help want to try an fix if before nhl 12 hits the stores.


Hi, It sounds like there's an error with the laser that reads blu ray media as PS3 games and blu ray movies are both stored on blu ray disks which is read by a different type of laser then a dvd is read by. There's nothing you could do to fix that on your own, the only fix I've heard of is sending it in to Sony.

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.

I am unable to play dvds. The system starts with


Try other discs to see if the system is reading anything.

If it isn't then take a can of air and blow some into the drive to make sure there is no dust or dirt on the laser.

After that, try again and if the system isn't reading discs still then that means that the laser is bad. You can either replace the laser or the dvd drive itself.

I have bought several American Blue Ray disks from Amazon but they won't play on my PS3. Any Ideas on how to unlock the disks so they will play on PS3 or have i just wasted rather a lot of money? Help...


If you have bought Blu-Rays from the wrong region, you have wasted your money. There is no way to use a blu-ray disc from another region on your PS3. Next time, try to get region-free Blu-Ray discs.

Blu-ray playback freeze


1st DO NOT EXPOSE THE BLU-RAY FOR ANY REASON - You run the risk of blindness and radiation exposure!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Please advise what FirmWare Version you are currently running on. You can find this under;
Settings>System Settings>System Information.

Once I have this info I will provide you with the best fix if needed but It is probably down to out of date drivers. There have been a number of changes to the blurays drivers recently and if these havent been updated then this will most likely be your problem. To solve this all you need to do is take your system online and download the newest FirmWare update. - There are people who NEVER use the system online for different reasons. Since you brought the system BluRay has gone through 4 upgrades. Any BluRays you buy now wll likely be incompatible for playback with the drivers you have on your system.

If you need any further advice on getting online with thew PS3 please post it as a new issue and I will help you - but the PS3 talks you through it to be honest
