The unit is over heating. Make sure you hear the fan come on. Also make sure the unit is in a spot where it gets ventilation. They get real hot and need to disapate heat or the mother board burns out.

How do i get ps2 games to play on my ps3


The only way how to play PS2 games on PS3 is to have the correct version of the console. Either your Playstation 3 can play PS and PS2 games or it can't, and there's not much to do about it. Most of the PS3 models simply cannot play older titles as they lack the necessary hardware and firmware. However, a few models do have backwards compatibility. The 20 Gb, 60 Gb, and original 80 Gb models all have backwards compatibility, either through hardware or software emulation. The other models lack backwards compatibility, so even knowing how to play PS2 games on PS3 won't help you out much here.
