Yikes! I'm certainly no PS3 expert but if that happened to me I would make sure it is connected to the internet. If the lease it's talking about is a DHCP lease you should make sure it can get one.

The internet connection could potentially download needed software to get the unit working again via the disk you put in it. Otherwise, check the PS3 manual and see if you can do a system restore!! Or perhaps use a disk that came with the PS3. Or maybe you can download it?

Black and white screen

If you haven't figured out how to get out of that and back to play games till you can get internet just hold the reset the power button. I just restarted it and held my finger on it and wham it goes back to the ps3 system. No need to throw it away.
