Our PS3 slim will not play certain newer games(COD Bops, Tron) but will play older games. I figure our Blue Ray laser needs to be replaced. Problem is I cannot find anyone to do it. Found one guy who is waiting for parts, but has no idea when he will get them.
Does anyone know of someone in Ottawa, who can do this.

If I have to send it to sony $225, I will probably just get another unit. That way I will have a longer warantee.

Before doing that have you done the following?
-made sure the sytem has been updated via the internet? current version is 3.6
-tried using a DVD/CD cleaning disk?
-try a factory reset?

I dont feel its the DVD drive because it is working for some games and not others. Usually it would fail not playing any games

It is now fixed. I tried cleaning it, but still did not fix it. Did a factory reset, then another clean and it works. Everyone I spoke with said it was broken...

glad i could help..

I had the misfortune of having to retire my phat ps3 earlier this year. started out with overheating problems, i had the thing in pieces about 6 times trying to re-flow solder only to finally having to overclock the main fan(which made it sound like a jet! LOL) A few days later my Blueray actually died.. :(

my ps3slim has worked fine so far :)
