Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
There are several factors that can contribute to this problem.
Firstly, let the system completely cool down. Turn off the power, and move the unit into an open area and try turning it on again to see if the problem persists. If so, leave it off for at least 30 minutes then try again.
I would also recommend vacuuming the air vents. DO NOT use compressed air as this can cause further damage.
Where your system is positioned can also make a big difference. - Make sure the system is at least 4 inches away from any walls. - Don´t leave it on a rug or carpet. - Try to give it as much open space as possible so that the fan can dissapate the heat efficiently.
If after trying all the above steps, the problem still persists, you may have to consider sending it in for servicing. If it´s still under warranty, take it back to the place you purchased it from. Otherwise, go to the official Playstation website to receive instructions on how to do this in your country.
Hope this helps. If you require any further help, feel free to contact me. Good luck!
