I've read that deleting the files for the game and/or signing out of PSN helps (I haven't tried either, but I can't get past the title screen and cutscenes without my PS3 freezing)

SOURCE: ps3 unsupported video format
The reason that you are getting this error is because the video setting on your PS3 got change to something that you TV does not support.
The link below will help you put the PS3 into recovery mode to reset the video. Note you will want to have the AV cable plugged in when you do this.
Let me know how things go

SOURCE: bought new call of duty
This doesn't help much but I have the exact same problem and I KNOW it is not the disc. We have two PS3's. 1st one is a 120g and the 2nd is a 250g. We bought two disc, one for my husband and one for my son. Our 120g reads and plays both disc perfectly but when we put either one of the disc in our 250g we receive the 80010514 error. Neither disc will play in the 250g and both play perfectly in our 120g. We have tried everything Sony has told us all the way to the complete hard drive restore (the 14 hour one) Nothing will make it play. It recognizes the game and allows us to see backround game picture with option to start , get info, or internet search but when you start you get that error every single time. Like the guy above everyone of our other games and blu-ray disc work perfect. Playstation sent us our box to send in for repairs today so we will see what happens but from the research we have checked our guess is 1 of 2 things. Either there is some type of bug with the 250g not being able to run this specific game OR this could mean the blu-ray reader is about to go out but has not yet. I say this because I read something about Black Ops running faster and harder in the drive than other games because of some type of smooth texture graphics type thing. Not sure exactly what all that means but something about running the disc harder than other games. Kinda makes me think blu-ray is on the verge of going but who knows. So far I have only found others with the 250g having this problem. Luckily it's still under warranty so it's in Sony's hands now. Just hope they hurry and have some answers.

SOURCE: while playing call of duty:
Are you seeing any flashing red/yellow lights?
If so this is the red light error and you will find that is why the system will not turn on.
Why Does It Happen?
The GPU and the CPU are the 2 main chips in the system and they deal with all of the number crunching however they can get very hot and if they lose connection the system will either freeze up or turn off and give you the red flashing light.
How To Fix?
The key is stopping the heat build up and you can either send it in and they will fix it for you.
Bear in mind that for the PS3 red flashing light error you will be waiting for about 4 weeks and it will also cost you $150 for the repair bill!
Other Ways To Fix?
You can also use a good PS3 Repair Guide to fix it and this will show you how to stop the heat build up with a few household items.
Just make sure that you get a good guide there are some good ones out there!
