Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
Your console is going into protection mode to protect the from being damaged.
First thing do is check the ventilation, make sure the fans are running, make sure you have min of 1 foot around the PS3.
If all is ok, with the PS3 in stand by mode Press and hold the power button for 5 secs.. until you hear the second beep this cause the PS3 to reset.
If you have the 60GB version then you might have a faulty power supply which was a known issue on these 60GB versions, if you have contact Sony and plead for a console repair free of charge, other than that they might do a repair but it will cost approx £145 in the UK.
