FW Update 001016 will fix your issue on the E5400. Try going to the settings menu and under support check system update. If you can make through the menus it before it cuts you off you should be fine and this will NOT reset your player Alternatively you must reset the player (I know...) by holding the STOP button on the touch panel for 20 seconds until the screen goes black and it will hard reset. This will take you through the initial setup where you can upgrade free of distraction. This will not technically FIX the problem of the ghost pushing buttons, but it will at least leave you alone while it plays from your laptop.
If the drive doesn't read any disc's you need to reinstall the drivers and verify you have the latest version. If the drive is ONLY having trouble with Blu-ray then i'm assuming it's the player that you're using; it may not have the right Codac's etc. Also, try multiple Blu-ray movies to verify it isn't just the one movie.
Hi there You will need a HDMI cable, that is of course if the laptop has HDMI out and that the TV supports HDMI. This is the only way you will be able to experience the full Blue-ray HD experience through the LCD TV.
You say this doesn't happen on regular cable or when playing a regular DVD. Hmm. Is this Blu-Ray player connected by simplink? HDMI is a bi-directional format cable, so there are cases in setups where your tv can send commands to your blu-ray player and vice versa. It could be a problem with your blu-ray player that it is sending for some odd reason a mute command to your tv. Or is processing a command that your TV interprets to be a mute command when playing blu-rays. Because if it was the TV itself chances are you'd see this when watching a normal DVD or on cable as well. Since you say you're not, it leads me to believe the issue lies with the blu-ray player itself.
