Is it possible you saved a PSD with a .JPG extension? (You may get this error if you have the wrong extension on the name of a file that is actually a different file type)

Check your backup copy of .psd file, in case it is absent, and then take a look at This solution owns many advantages above other tools in this class – I can’t describe all the advantages, only try it, because for me it is number one.
