PS4 Screen Flickers and Hangs

Recently, my PS4 is suffering from a peculiar problem. It is the old model, e.g. Fat.

After booting up and playing for a while (approx 15 to 20 minutes), the screen starts flckering and a weird sound (like a short drum beat) is heard. The display starts cracking and the PS4 becomes unplayable.

Has anyone else encountered this problem? Any solution? Is it an issue with my TV or PS4?

TV runs fine with Netflix but shows issue with the DTH (which is also a HDMI connected devise)

Now, I am wondering. Is it an issue with the PS4 or the HDMI outputs of the TV? I changed the cables, but issue persists.

Check the HDMI output. Mine cracked and was doing that.
