Start with the video reset trick, if that doesn't work I would also try the restoring the hard drive. Those probably won't work but give them a shot anyways.

The problem is related to the RSX chip on your motherboard. The PS3 gets too hot and the chip starts to come off the board. That's usually why you get flickering. Sony will fix it for $150 or free if you still have your recepit and you purchased it within 1 year.

Otherwise call 1-800-345-SONY

You could also try updating the firmware to 2.60 but like I said, it's probably the RSX chip.
