Blu Ray PS3 issues

I have a Samsung DLP television that is 1080p.  I have also had success playing various BluRay DVD's with the PS3 (Superbad, We Own the Night, Jumper)  However when I tried to play the Will Ferrell movie Semi-Pro it would not work and gave me the error message 80029940.  Is there a difference in particular BluRay DVD's and how they are played.  I am curious because most people are having problems playing ANY BluRay.  I am having success except for this particular disc, is it a bad disc or is it the settings?

Hi i can only play dvd`s but not blu ray`s on my samsung blu ray player


My experience is that over time (sometimes already within a year) the readout laser efficiency drop so much that reading BD is no longer possible. For DVD less power is required. This is also known from Sony PS3. The only solution is to replace the drive, or the complete player.
When your player is still under warranty , I would recommend going back to the store.

Won't play 1080p discs?


From this problem's description I have to assume that either the blu ray player will not play blu rays or the blu ray player will play blu rays but only in 1080i/720p or that you want to know if this blu ray player supports the 1080p resolution.

If the blu ray player is not playing blu rays then you update the firmware and try multiple purchased discs to make sure nothing is wrong with the ones you have been trying. If blu rays that played once will no longer play, then you will need to reset the blu ray player from its menu and possibly by holding down the power button on the front of the unit until the word reset displays on the unit before trying to play the disc again.

If the television is not showing 1080p make sure you are connected with an hdmi cable and that it is the right version hdmi cable for this blu ray player and for your television. Make sure you have chosen 1080p as the resolution to display in the blu ray player's menu. If all of that has been done and 1080p will still not display then it is a case of incompatibility between manufacturers--Sharp and whatever the television is. It would display in 1080p on a Sharp television and most likely on a Samsung and Sony as well. With other brands and even some models of the aforementioned brands (except for Sharp) its a toss up.
