Default 80GB PS3 Screen flickering to black on Blu playback

I've had my PS3 for approx. middle of July. It's an 80GB Metal Gear Solid bundle version. Recently, while watching Blu-ray movies, the screen would flicker to black and stop playback. The movie won't come back on, as I would have to eject the disc and power down the system.

A few days later, I was watching another movie and it did it again. Flickering to black, but this time the movie came back on immediately. Later during the same movie, it occured again, but the screen flickered a purple screen, green screen, then back to the movie. Later again, it flickered to a snow/white noise screen, then back to the movie.

Any ideas on what this could be?

Sounds to me that you have a serious display problem. Call Sony.

Does it do it while playing games?
