Sounds like the laser just took a dive.

You can try updating the firmware to 2.76 but 95% of the time the laser needs to be swapped.

Try turning the system off completely with the main power switch on the back of the console. If that doesnt work call Sony technical support for further help.

Sounds like it's overheating. 1st person shooters take a lot of processing speed and will overtax your unit if you don't have adequate ventilation. Be sure you have the unit standing on it's side, flat down is not good unless you have some standoff room underneath by propping it up, making sure you don't cover the vents. If it continues, you can buy something like this

Ps3 power problem


Hi lafayetteron,

 

I am currently working on this problem with a PS3.  Can you tell me what lead up the PS3 shutting down, did you remove a cable or anything prior to this?  I see you were playing Call of duty 3. If I find the cause tonight, I may be able to fill you in on what the cause is.
