Your console is going into protection mode to protect the from being damaged.
First thing do is check the ventilation, make sure the fans are running, make sure you have min of 1 foot around the PS3.
If all is ok, with the PS3 in stand by mode Press and hold the power button for 5 secs.. until you hear the second beep this cause the PS3 to reset.
If you have the 60GB version then you might have a faulty power supply which was a known issue on these 60GB versions, if you have contact Sony and plead for a console repair free of charge, other than that they might do a repair but it will cost approx £145 in the UK.
Possibly the very common mother board failure. Slight possibility that the power supply is failed, but the capacitors in either component can be tested with capacitor tester and service manual to test for the faulty component.
Not all PS3s are able to play PS2 games - they started removing that functionality when they came out with the 60GB model. So if you have a relatively new PS3 (A year old or so), that's likely the reason.
Some models can, the 60 GB model can play all PS2 games, the 80 GB can play pretty much all PS2 games, the lower end ones (I think the 20 and 40 GB can not play PS2 games). There is a rumor however that ALL PS3's will soon be able to play PS2 games with a software update.. that will not be available until a few months into the future, if ever.
