This is a 4 day old t.v. and has had very little use in those 4 days
(damn work) i also have an 80 gig PS3 hooked up to it via HDMI . when i
play games or dvds after a few min of playback the picture and sound
cut out some times returning a few sec later. now at first i figured it
was just the PS3 and it could very well be, but the controller still
responds to what is going on in the game (ie.the rumbling when i get
hit in game) i have tested the HDMI cable and its not that and i've
checked all the connections and everything was solid please help so i
know what to box up and take back:)

Unfortunetly the HDD's can't be swapped like that. The only way to get the old stuff is to some how get the 40gb working so you can back up your system. Tell me what happend to the 40 and I might be able to help you get it up long enough to back it up so you can get all your stuff transfered. Another way is if you can get the 40gb machine to work the PS3 has a mode to hook a CAT5 cable from the new to the old and transfer that way.
A little more on the HDD swap. The HDD's are machine spacific and can only be recognized by the machine they were in and any other PS3 you try to put them in won't recognize the device without a format will saddly enough wipe the drive clean.
Let me know what's wrong with the 40 and I will see if I can help getting it back up so you can get your saved stuff off of it.
I have the same problem. My games freeze after 5 minutes. Same with blue rays but dvds play fine. I have reformatted the hard drive and formatted the file system. Nothing has worked. Hearing through multiple sources the blue ray laser is going out or the latest firmware update could be causing this. Hard to know for sure ... major disappoint. I have the 80 gig. 2 years old just starting doing this three days ago. Any other suggestions?
While it is playing, sound that is, try holding a flash light right up next to the sceen, preferably in a dark room, and see if you have any picture. You really have to focus on it and watch closely. If you can see any picture, you probably have a bad inverter. The inverter lights the back lights in the panel to illuminate the picture. The flash light basically does the same thing from the front. The inverter is the board on the far right with several of the same kind of wires disapearing down the side. Thanks. Let me know what you find.
well it needs to be backwards compatible mine is an 80gig and it has 4 portholes for usb if your only has 2 portholes (btw thats where u plug in wired controllers) then its a regular and not backwards compatible i no it sucks that happened to me and i just sold mine and bought a backwards compatible one. if u just got it in a matter of days you can go to wheere you bought it and ask them to exchange it for a backwards compatible one BUT THATS ONLY IN A MATTER OF A FEW DAYS
There is a common problem with the Blue-Ray players in the PS3. There is not anything that i know of that you can do other than have your PS3 worked on
**Warning** If you have the old 80 or 60 gig ps3 that you are able to play PS2 games on and you are trying to go through sony for repair they may just give you a new 80 gig ps3 in which you will not be able to play PS2 games on any more that feature has been taken away
Hey, i bought a ps3 almost 2 years ago now, its been more reliable for me than my old ps2. i would try and phone them again if you aint recieved the case soon,
it does sometimes take a while for them to repair it and send it back ie if its the same console, they might just swap it for another ie once u get it sent away :-).
sounds like a problem with the laser, im sure you will see the case soon, and touch wood have no problems with the replacement ps3.
