Blue Screen on a Playstation 3

Never had this problem before and I though I'd just toss this out here before going to the trouble of trading it, since I've already returned another one for the exact same problem 2 weeks ago.

The system works just fine until you load a game or the Playstation Store. While the one I traded for, a PS3 slim, does occasionally work, more than half the time it goes to a blue screen. The sound is still audible and it is accepting controller inputs, but the only way out of the blue screen is to reset the system. This happens with every disc I have.

I was told that it would help if I waited a bit between turning the system on and loading the game, but it doesn't seem to have any effect. Ditto for changing the aspect ratio and resolution. I am using an AV cable, but since it does occasionally work I doubt that's the problem. The TV brand is Element, and it has no problems with any other system or channel.

Any help would be most appreciated!
