Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
Hi, this is the first sign its over heating so try the following
1 check the air vents and vac if needed to remove all dust
2 make sure your not using it on carpet or on top of sky box or dvd player etc.
if after doing the above it still happens then the chances are the damage has all ready been done and you will soon have the red light and it wont come on at all
check your warranty and if you have any left take it back and get an exchange as this is covered by warranty
failing that you will have to pay someone to clean it all out for you and to also replace the heat sink paste and this should then sort it out for you
let me know if you need further assistance ok
plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks

Keeping the fans clean is especially important, because the fans blow out hot air and bring in fresh air to cool down the laptop.
Fans attract dust, however, which can slow them down, resulting in a hot laptop.
If the laptop overheats, vital parts can cease functioning altogether.
Consequently, keeping your laptop's fans clean is crucial.
The fan speed on a laptop can determine how it operates consistently and reliably.
You can slow it down or speed it up, based on the circumstances.
For instance, slowing down the fan speed may be useful in reserving processes or during a prolonged slow time.
Speeding it up is beneficial in keeping the laptop cool during ongoing use or high-traffic times. For the long term, find a happy medium for regular use, so you won't "psyche" out your computer by constantly adjusting the settings.
Click on the Start menu and select "Control Panel." Next, choose "Performance and Maintenance."
Select "Power Saver."
To slow the fan speed, locate the slider next to "CPU Processing Speed" and slide it down by moving across to the left.
To speed up the fan, move the slider to the right.
Press "Apply" and then "OK," if prompted.
Hope this helps
