    PS3 broke down

    hey everybody, I've had my PS3 slim for 3 years now, and it's been on every day.
    So last week it had trouble reading Blu-Ray films, and later it wouldn't start Uncharted 3 anymore and now I can only play CD's and DVD's.

    My PS3 is the most usefull thing in my life, does anyone know what's going on?

    sounds like your blu ray drive has is going dead. it's not the end of the world. there are several computer shops and i think even best buy that can fix that problem. it's not too expensive to fix. but at the end of the day you can always send it to sony and they can patch that right up.

    You can easily buy replacement parts for the Blu-Ray lens assembly and repair the PS3 yourself.

    Search for your PS3 model (it'll be on the base of the unit) or disassemble the console and find the part number. Search Google, eBay etc and you'll find all sorts of suppliers and guides. I think Helyx can recommend a reputable site, so shoot him a PM.

    ^ This.

    If you feel comfortable repairing the unit yourself, and you have at least 2 guides (preferably one with a video), then by all means, try to do the repairs yourself.

    This site has lots of parts, but I'm not sure how large their Slim model inventory is. Worth a look either way.
