    Common error, call up sony and they will sort out a replacement. Up to you if you remove the HDD or not, they usually swap the console on your doorstep.

    do you have access to the XMB at all ?

    If so try a full backup to another usb drive then restore it once new ps3 arrives

    You will AFAIK not be able to use old ps3 hd in new ps3 and have everything as it was.

    If you send hd with ps3 to sony ...
