Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
I was in the middle of playing COD4 when the system just turned itself off. so then i turn it back on, the menu pops up and i go to play the game again and it shut off again. when i hit the switch the green light comes on for like 2 seconds, turns yellow an then red (off). i did just update to version 2.42, i dont knw if thats the issue, but until now i haven't had any problems with it and i've had it for about 8 months now. any help would be appreciated!

This is a hardware failure caused by heat. I have done TONS of research on this problem as I have a unit that is like this too. I hear that Sony will fix it or send you a replacement for FREE. I have been told by over 30 people that Sony did it for them. Just be hoest and polite to the customer service people. Go to www.playstation.com choose your region, click on playstation 3, then Support (upper right corner) and there should be the contact information.
If you need any more information, please do not hesitate to hit my "Ask Me" button.
I hope this helps. Good luck to you!

Tips for a great answer:
system turns on but then turns itself off, beeps at you and flashes it's lights
at you then you have over heated the system. The GPU chip has probly pulled
itself away from the board. This will require you to diassemble the PS3...... u just fix this by using ps3 repair guide....
