    Sounds like the console is overheating. I recommend putting in new thermal paste and extra heat absorbent pads inside the console.

    OPTIONAL: An extra fan sitting underneath the console.

    Sounds to me like the yellow light of death. It's a very common issue with the fat PS3's. If you like DIY work you could easily fix it yourself just do a search on youtube for how to fix a ps3 yellow light of death that's what I had to do about 5 years ago and to this day I'm still fixing my consoles when it happens.

    It's about an hour and half fix for me these days. If you don't like DIY just sell it on ebay. They go for around 40-70 bucks depending on what type of system you have and what you're including with it.

    It's hardware failure, if dont have an experienced on hardware, i suggest you take your PS3 to local shop to repair it.
