Question about Video Game Consoles & Games
This may not be a definate answer, but I had a similar problem once before. Like some other electronics, the system sometimes just needs to be reset. Simply unplug the system from the power source. All power should be off, and the standby light should go away. Having done that, you should wait about 5 minutes of just letting it sit there. When you plug it back in, it should have reset itself. By resetting, it's just cancelling all functions that may have been occuring at the time. Rest assured that by doing this, it is not erasing any data or doing anything to your settings. This has worked for many of my electronics, ie: my BOSE system, my PS3, and my PC, but, in this particular case, I have not encountered this specific problem before and am simply offering a suggestion that my help, but is not guaranteed to work. Hope it does though, I like to think that I know something about this stuff! ; )

Tips for a great answer:
1. Place you finger on the on/off sensor leave it their until you console turns off then take you finger off the sensor.
2. Place your finger back on the on/off sensor leave it their until you hear 2 consecutive beeps then take your finger off.
3. Once the safe mode screen comes on select the option PS3 SYSTEM RESTORE.
NOTE: A PS3 system restore will delete all data except the OS. I recommend backing up your console onto a USB flash drive if possible.
