HELP! PS3 Slim 80029903 80010017, thinking it's blueray driver problems.

Recently, I've bought a PS3 Slim 250G station, everything seems so fine at the first week.
 
But later the blueray driver start to have problems
 
Sometimes it shows 80029903 error when I insert a blue ray movie, sometimes the movie can be played but very lag while playing, and often with display dimness (a lot).
 
Games have problems as well. Neither Killzone 2 nor Little Big Planet can be played, the error is 80010017. (I only have two games so far, it means all my games don't work now, and surely I'm not planning to buy new games till it is fixed.)
 
Some downloaded game demos seem fine.

 

So I believe this is a hardware problem on Blueray Driver, right?

 

So I'm wondering where I can get it replaced or repaired?
 
Thanks for any advice. I can do nothing with it right now !

Yep faulty take it bak to the store you got it from if its within 30 days you should be able to swap it for a new one rather than having to get it repaired.

Even beter, call amazon up they will just ship out a new ps3 to you and all you have to do is print out a label and they will collect the broken one..

 

Call them thier number is on the website and they still open now, they are really good like that anything i have had thats been faulty if bought direct from Amazon they have just sent me out a replacement.

Thank you so much, truely as you said, amazon's even better.

 

I don't even have to call, just several click, it's all done now.

 

Just have one more question, if the new one still have problems, will they change it again for me?

I think they give you a refund and then you can buy a new one of the site. 

 

I think they let you have 1 replacement then refund you (it may be 2 replacements.

 

They dont ask questions either which is cool. 

 

But once you have been refunded if you get another faulty machine.. You can just buy another PS3 and it starts again.

 

I know with TVs and stuff like samsung, you DONT get a Manufacturers waranty.  Amazon buy them without waranty and you get the amazon waranty which is oh its faulty well pack it up we got a brand new one in the post to ya. Which is often better than the manufacturers waranty..
