Dear, before you get in touch with Sony technical support you may want to try to use the PS3 recovery options. The PS3 stores a copy of firmware drivers on the hard-drive and will reload any corrupt files. To access the recovery menu, do this: Make sure the PS3 is turned off Press and hold the power button on the PS3 it will power on then power off. When it's off press and hold the power button again until you hear two consecutive beeps. When you hear the double beeps immediately take your finger off the power button (if your system turns off before you get a double beep just try again and hold the button, it should double beep the 2nd time you try) It will ask for the controller to be connected via the USB cable, Turn on the controller and you will have access to the menu. Be aware that you may lose all of your previously saved data.

Why does error code 8001002f appear when formatting disk ?

Remove and reinstall it, if it still gives the error code it means the hard drive is bad or going bad. That error code means the Ps3 can't read the hdd or certain sectors of the hdd. Best to always use a new hdd when replacing the hdd in your Ps3 anyways. I'd a hdd dies andyou haven't backed it up you lose aall your game saves and anything that is not tired to a psn account.

Format error

If your ps is under warranty then speak to sony, or you can reformat the hd on a lap top. You can also upgrade to a 200gb hd, which is very simple to do, and only costs about 40-50 pound or 80-100 dollars.
