    PS3 problem

    I have a 160GB slim, games work fine, DVD work fine, Blu-rays work fine . My 3D movies used to work now I get 80029940 message sometimes and other times they play, thats not the problem though the 3D movie will work for ten mins then it will stutter and slow right down, also the sound stops at this time

    I thought it was a scratched disk at first but now its doing it on a brand new, bought today disk ( the hobbit ) . It is only happening on 3D movies, it also makes a noise like its ejecting the disk but does not eject it, I turn it off/on and it will load as normal .

    I have checked the net and nothing recent about this or anything that helps, if anyone knows how to fix this or at least why its happening could you please tell me .

    A quick search for the error code and the eject behaviour indicates the BR Drive is on the way out. They're pretty cheap and easy to replace.

    I don't profess to know a lot about how a BR Drive works, but my guess is it has something to do with the dual-stream disc read or decoding of 3D. Maybe it's more sensitive or requires greater accuracy than a game's BR or a DVD. Or maybe 3D uses double-density BR discs which again, requires greater read accuracy.

    I'm assuming the BR laser head is the problem and perhaps it's just dirty. Try a cleaner before replacing the BR drive.
