Have you checked for software updates? Sometimes, bugs can cause unexpected shutdowns until they’re patched.

Overheating might be the culprit! Make sure your PS5 has good ventilation and isn't stuffed in a closed cabinet.

Maybe it's time to contact Sony support. If your PS5 keeps shutting off, there could be an internal hardware issue.

I had this issue too, and it turned out the problem was with the HDMI-CEC settings. Turning them off fixed it!

It could be a power issue. Try plugging the PS5 directly into a wall outlet instead of a power strip.
