It seems to be stuck for now. I'll give it some time...

 

Edit: All of a sudden it stopped and went back to "Hard Disk is corrupted. Now restoring..."

Found my solution: When the PS3 kept telling me the hard disk was corrupted, and would start over in an endless cycle, I switched out the hard drive with another one. Now my PS3 works the same as before the problems. I'd like to thank you guys for all the suggested help. You guys saved me from blowing $150+ for repairs via PS3 Servicing. Now all I have to do is cancel the service request I made...

Great stuff. Really glad to hear you got it fixed on your own and didn't have to send it in. Thanks for posting the information on how you fixed it. I'm glad I read this thread as my PS3 is getting vary old. I got it about three weeks after they first came out in the US. And once and a great while I will have to flick the switch in the back to get it to shut off. So I could really see this same thing happening to me some time soon.

Anyway hope your PS3 continues to go strong for many years to come.

Well, it looks like she took her last breath before going under. After turning it on, I get a brief yellow light, followed by a flashing red light.
