Weird PS3 display problem?

My PS3 has been having this problem for probably at least 10 months now. I have a slim. When I play for a bit, or even sometimes pretty shortly the display gets all distorted. Usually its all weird colored pixels. Then once I notice that and click the PS button to open the menu, it is all distorted and practically impossible to read. So I shut it down by manually holding the button. Once it turns off, it completely turns off without a red light or anything. I usually have to unplug the PS3 after turning it off and plugging it back in to get it to go back on. Sometimes it doesn't go back on right away either.

I was thinking this was a symptom of overheating but I have it aired out pretty good. It sits on a cooling rack with ample space around it.

Any idea what it could be? I've made many Google searches and haven't had any luck about it.
