System won't update

Check you network settings, and try again. Otherwise, wait a little bit until trying again as the update server might be overloaded.

3.0 Killed my PS3

Sounds like the laser diode burned out. If your under warranty send it in. If not you could buy a replacment and install it yourself.

PS3 is backwards compatible with PS2 games, and USED to play them

In Playstation Store, you should download (for free) the PS2 SYSTEM DATA (something like this).
if you have formated your system, the files were erased, and the games won't play until you download the backwards comparibility files again.

PS3 games play but DVD/Blu-ray will not

Sounds like a bad laser, but you should restore the PS3 back to Factory to see what happens.

If you get the same results it's definitely the laser.

My ps3 keeps freezing up. i bought it less than a year ago

Does your PS3 have the latest update? If you don't have your PS3 connected to the Internet you will need to go to the Sony website and download it to your computer. From there you can burn it to a CD or a Memory Stick to transfer the install file to the PS3. Here is the link to the 2.52 update...

MY ps3

If you have your PS3 in a cabinet it could be overheating. My was crashing when I first bought it and it seamed to be getting pretty hot. We took it out of the cabinet and it works fine. They do sell an after market fan that lowers te temperature on mine.

I'm not sure this is your problem but you can check it out.
