Question about Sony PlayStation® 3 Black Console
Ps3 fan goes nuts and message says ps3 is over heating. i had issues with it before when it started giving 3D black lines within games i was playing. then it started to freeze alot. After the freezing it completely didnt work. I would turn on the ps3 and the screen would be black with yellow lines on the top and bottom. I took it apart, and put new thermal paste on it and now it turns on, but it doesnt run for very long until the fan starts to rev up really fast and gets really loud. i then get a message stating that the ps3 is very hot and needs to turn off in which it turns itself off.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

SOURCE: Ps3 freezes after start up
i had the same prob but i fixed it. i had the wavy line that froze right when i started the playstation. but i miraculously fixed it by plugging in the controller to the system, turning on the controller and turning on the playstation by holding the power button after it beeps once, keep holding it until you hear a double beep. then a menu should pop up. click the rebuild hard disk. then it will turn off then do everything again to get to the menu and click restart system on bottom. then it should be fixed

If you press the PS button does it bring up the XMB? If it does that means your bluray laser is dying. They are about $70 on ebay and you can replace them using the guide here: http://progamer.cc/blog/ps3-laser-kem-400a/how-to-replace-a-ps3-bluray-lens-guide.html/ another option is to send to Sony and for $150 (if it's out of warranty) they will replace it.

Pretty sure its your laser, mine was doing the same thing, you might need to clean it before replacing it though. If you do need to replace it, the part runs at about 70 usd.
