That generally means the system is too hot. So you need to cool it, this means either the area it is in such as enclosed area is not allowing it to cool, or the unit is full of dust that needs to be cleaned out of it or the internal fan has quit on the unit which could be from dust.
Ifyou need any further assistance you can reply back at any time for my help.

What are your suggestions that could help me fix it and to keep the message from appearing again?
As I explained, you either need to clean the dust out of the inside of the ps3 which you may try compressed air cans but it really needs to have it opened up to clean, if that does not work and the fan is not caked in dust then see if fan is spinning if not then check power/ground to the fan if good then replace fan. Only other thing is if it is in an area too small to allow it to cool such as it in use with door closed in front of it in a cabinet.
