casillassjesuss, it certainly sounds like the early symptoms of failure from overheating. So I would treat it just as any other YLOD and either get it fixed under warranty, like williamcasey80 correctly suggested, or repair it yourself. The guide for it is available here. and the fix kit itself is here. Hope this helps, good luck.

It is an error code If your ps3 is still under warranty you can contact the manufacturer and see about sending it in to get fixed.
