My ps3 slim won't play games and blue ray disk but I can still play eve movies on it, please help want to try an fix if before nhl 12 hits the stores.

Hi, It sounds like there's an error with the laser that reads blu ray media as PS3 games and blu ray movies are both stored on blu ray disks which is read by a different type of laser then a dvd is read by. There's nothing you could do to fix that on your own, the only fix I've heard of is sending it in to Sony.

My playstation slim wont load anything

Clearly there is a problem with the Blu-ray disk laser or decoder circuity in your PS3's Blu-ray drive. The drive uses a completely separate head to read CDs and CD-ROMs, so those only confirm that the drive isn't completely dead. Whether the failure was caused by upgrading to System 3.X, or not, is a matter of conjecture at this point. Lots of people upgraded and did not have this problem, but a small percentage did. Either way, given that your PS3 is so new, I would advise making a system backup to a USB drive, and then either returning it to the place of purchase (if there is still time), or sending it to Sony for replacement. No one seems to have been able to resolve this problem, with or without Sony's help. Any replacement PS3 that Sony sends you will be running System 3.15, and be able to read Blu-ray disks.

PS3 stopped reading PS3 games

This is most likely do to a previous freeze up while on the PS3. All you have to do is to first disconnect all of the plugs and wires. Then you put them back in and turn on the PS3. It should read your PS3 game discs.
