I had a problem with my ps3 it kept freezing, so i took advice from youtube on how to clean you system. It worked as far as rebooting, but it wiped out all my information on my ps3 (pictures, accounts,etc) Now my game don't work and I tired other games and they will not pop up when already in the ps3. It makes a clicking noise, and act like it is loading but nothing comes up..???? It all started on black opsII freezing up on me, so i tried to fix it, and ended up messing up my whole system. I done tried everything i could think of; can somebody please help me figure out this.. **bleep** do i need to get incontact with SONY????

My ps3 isn't playing any disc games, music, nor movies. The loading symbol is just spinning but nothing shows up. Can this be fixed by me or do I need to send it back? Help anyone... If I can fix it please explain..
If you think you're capable you can fix it. Replace the disc drive with one from the same model. eBay and youtube are your friends.
I just experienced this problem (Oct. 18, 2013)...
I've been trying to fix it myself, but no luck.
All I've tried is:
-go to the save/recovery mode and tried options 3, 4, and 6 at different times.
-the fan test.
-inserting two disc at once.
-play a demo/downloaded game and then try going to the disc.
BUT NO LUCK
Please, I need help!!!
Please, Sony tech rep. Or anybody with the actual and most effective solution post an updated post or reply me.
This issue apparently is common (stupid, but common).
I know there is a solution besides sending it to Sony for repair (just before about 3 week before PS4 hits the stores)
or doing a factory reset.
