I have a PS3 slim 250GB - it's about 6 months old. A few months ago it started making a rattling, whirring sound when playing certain games or any Blu Ray movies. After doing some research online, I think it's the bearings in the fan that are loose. I didn't think much more of it as it wasn't affecting the console in any other way.
Recently my console will flash a black screen, then show some static for a second before returning to the game / movie / iPlayer. This is beginning to happen very frequently. Does anyone have any suggestions? The PS3 is connected to a 1080i TV via an HDMI cable.
Thanks in advance.

The static / flashing problem could be the your tv changing resoloution as when your on the xmb it displays at 720p(mine did so i'll asume yours will be)and when i started a game it would change 1080i and cause the static / flashing. Or it could be a dodgy hdmi cable...
As for your other problem do what TTDeggs suggested and take it back...
