Try a complete reboot of the system, but leave it unplugged for a min or so - it worked when I had a similar problem

Cant play cod ghosts onslaught maps

You must make sure your PS3 is activated for your game DL's. Here is how to do it. At the XMB, sign in to PSN. When you do, a tab will open up that says account management. Scroll down to System activation. There, you can select to activate/deactivate your system and PSP for games and DLC content.

I down loadedthe cod ghosts onslaught maps but cant play them why

You must activate your system first. Here are the steps.
1 power on
2 log into the system
3 sign in to psn
4 Account Management
5 System Activation
6 PS3 System
7 Games and videos
Remember, SCEA only allows (2) systems to be activated under the same account. So even if you had 3 systems in your house, you can only activate 2. After your system is activated, then you can enjoy your new maps. ^^ P.S. As of this writing, "DEVASTATION" will be released for the PS3 TOMORROW!

Im trying to download the new map pack for cod on my ps3 but it says problem installing and giving me the error code 80029780

Hello Stephen,
That means all your activations have been used up and you'll have to wait an extra week before you can download again.
However, pay attention: have you registered this account on multiple ps3 consoles?
If the account has been deactivated on the other PS3 systems properly and you still get the error, then it wasn't properly registered through Sony's servers and you'll have to contact Sony directly to let them know your account wasn't deactivated properly on other ps3 consoles.
Here's the telephone number: 1-800-345-SONY (7669)
Hope this helps!

I get error code 80029780 which I believe is an activation issue. How do I reactivate or reset my system? I have games in my download list that I can't play because they won't download.

Sonds like u keep activating and deactivating your account on the playstation network. Once you reach 15 times of doing this, you have to wait one week before you can activate your account again.
Hope this Helps.
