    When i start my system my disk don't load or spin. laser moves up and down but mechanism does not move along the rail unless it is pushed. The beams try to read disk but it doesn't spin. Games and DVD do not show on screen when it's time for them to load. What should i do?

    If you're still on waranty, return the console. Otherwise you need a new drive. It's one of the known issues of the super slim. You could try getting one that has a glod (LED becomes green during startup, but no picture on TV and after a few seconds the LED switches off completely) and switch the drives, but be aware that you need a special screwdriver for the screws.
