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 !

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.

My PS3 will not load of play games disc of any description. Can you help?


if you still under sony waranty; send back to them. if not change your Blu Ray laser eye. that will fix it. Life span of laser is dependant on how much you use the device and how you are avoiding overheat.

My ps3 games wont load after update 2.70


Yes, there have been many ps3's that have gone bad after the firmware update.

You are unable to play your discs because the Blu-Ray Lens that enables the PS3 to read Blu-Ray movies or games has gone bad.

There is nothing you can do about it. You need to take it to an authorized Sony Service Center and get the lens replaced.

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Once I have this info I will provide you with the best fix if needed but It is probably down to out of date drivers.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
