    Unhappy How can I restore the PS3 operating system on PS3?

    I sent my PS3 into game stop to have them clean the inside because it was dusty. When I got it back the PS3 operating system will not come up. I can put a game into the console and play it but can not access the menu or even access it. PLEASE HELP! Is there a way to reload the operating system or do I now own a doorstop?
