I have tried to remove and reseat the hdd as someone else suggested but still no go. running out of patience now, any suggestions before it gets thrown?
Procedure for Entering Safe mode when PS3 is caught in
When you first turn on the PS3, it will not allow you to go into Safe mode. You must prepare it for this.
link for flash drive prep:
(This will not work for the drive that currently is caught in the update loop. You must take the hard drive out of the PS3 and temporarily replace it with another 2.5” SATA drive. Note: temp drive may need to be initialized… Connect drive to pc, right click on My Computer and select Manage… Then select disk Management… you will then be presented with a dialogue box that will assist in initializing the disk.. However, only initialize it… Do Not Format it!(waste of time) Once the disk is initialized disconnect it from external enclosure or shut down computer and remove disk)
From the top:
1.) Plug in PS3 and flip switch in back of PS3 to on. Red LED in front of PS3 should light up. Also, plug in Controller at this point.
2.) Hold finger to I/O button on front of PS3 – Green LED lights up
a. You will hear one beep, then another single beep, then a final beep and the PS3 will power off again and Red LED will be on
3.) Hold finger to I/O button on front of PS3 – Green LED lights up
a. You will hear one beep, then another single beep, then two beeps
4.) As soon as you hear the two beeps, hold PS button on Controller
a. You will then be presented with an options screen
i. Restart System -- leads back to update loop
ii. Restore Default Settings --
iii. Restore File System -- leads back to update loop (8002F14E)
iv. Rebuild Database --
v. Restore PS3 System --
vi. System Update -- will cause error
5.) You will then remove the temporary SATA drive from the PS3 and replace it with the hard drive that is caught in the update loo
6.) I am currently stuck attempting to Restore Default Settings and Im sure it will end in error, but i have to try all possible solutions.

I have been scanning these answers for hours trying to find something that worked. i didnt want to buy another hard drive or enclosure to plug it into my pc so i tried this..... It worked first time, i just turned the system on waited for it to start getting into the update loop then pulled the hard drive. it read error on the screen, the ps3 turned off. i turned it off at the power switch, plugged the hard drive back in and turned it back on and it worked first time, went straight to first time setup! im well pleased!

Generally what happens is that progress will stall whilst you are trying to update the firmware or software/games on your PS3, causing it to be corrupted. Your console is then unable to function properly, and you are left trying to "pick up the pieces" as it were. The PS3 error 80710723 is one of these system update errors, and is often experienced by gamers who use wireless connections to update their firmware or games.
So how can you fix PS3 system update error? Here are a few steps you can take to try and fix the 80710723 error code yourself.
