You would have had to have done that before it crapped out. The only thing you can do is try to get it working long enough to get your data off of it.

Unfortunately, unless you have the tools and knowledge to disassemble and repair the unit, you are probably out of luck.

On your trophycard, it says you have PS+. Did you take advantage of Cloud Storage?

 

You can look up Endless Electronics, a shop that repairs Ps3s and other consoles.
