Base from the description of your problem this can be an issue with the overheating of the unit, if this problem happen even when you're not playing or playing the possibilities of overheating is high.

Because if the shut off only happen when you play games on your PS3 what you can do here to correct the problem is to do a software update on it, but if the shut off also happen when not playing games the system is overheating and the fan on it may not be working fine and needs replacement.

So if the PS3 is still under warranty better take it to service center near you and have the fan replace or better yet have the unit replace.

Replaced lamp on mitsubishi wd62527 worked for 10 minutes then shut down. Now red lamp light is on


If the red indicator light on the front of your HDTV is glowing a solid red, you should first unplug the AC cord from the wall power outlet and wait for 60 seconds before reapplying power to the HDTV.

After you turn the TV on, if it doesn't power up, try holding the power button down for at least 8 seconds. That's supposed to force a system reset. If your model has a system reset button, use that instead. Press the reset button for about 20 seconds...release it and press it again for 20 seconds, release it again and the led will blink just for a minute or two. You should now be able to turn the TV on.
If after several attempts, the HDTV has not fully powered on and the LED on the front of the HDTV is still glowing solid red, you may want to reseat the lamp.

If reseating the lamp has not resolved the issue then your next step is to order a replacement lamp.

Restart the system. Press the power button on the system front for 10 secs or more. This will force the system to shut down. After some time turn on the system again. Also check the system is in a place where it is getting enough air to cool down as over heating also tend to shut down the sysytem

80GB PS3 displays Snow/White screen during playback


Did you ever figure out how to fix this. We simply took our system and hooked it up to a different tv and it stopped. I personally think the problem is with the HDMI cable and wether the cable and the socket are connecting.
