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?

You can try clear your movie data from the discs you\'ve played (according to Fox that\'s sometimes the culprit when a disc won\'t even load): restart your PS3 and go to the video menu and scroll up to the BluRay Data section. Go into it and check that it has saved some info for your movies. Now deleted all the data in this folder except the shared data crap, and hopefully your movies start perfectly!!
If that fails try the following:
In the XMB(menus) go to Settings ---> BD/DVD Settings ---> BD 1080p 24 Hz Output (HDMI). Turn that off. This has also been known to work.
I am having the same exact issue myself. Starting a month or two ago, it got harder and harder to get PS3 games to play. Now it plays anything that is not blu-ray based. I would be very interested in hearing how you are able to fix the problem.
Well the most typical problem for something like this is that the Blu-ray software is either disabled on the Playstation console OR you need to update your Blu-ray software by allowing the Playstation to connect to an internet source
This will show you some general set-up settings to use :
The problem is all in the settings. You probably have a 1080i television that cannot display in 1080p. To fix this go to the main menu and go to:
Then Blu Ray Disc and make it turn the Display BD in 1080p 24hz or whatever. Once you do that, start the Blu Ray Disc again, and you should be able to watch it. This all happened because your tv doesn't display 1080p.
It sucks to see ALLLLLLL these solutions, when I have the solution. Turn off DEEP COLOR in the video settings. It will immediately stop. If it doesn't, then you don't have the typical snow/flickering problem.
You most likely have the updated drivers. You may have to go and change a setting. I found an answer on the PS3 website that may be of some use to you. I hope this helps you:
From the site: "go to bd/dvd setting and set the "108024hz" option off"
