It could be a power supply issue. Check the power cord and outlet to ensure they're working properly. Try plugging the PS5 into a different outlet or using a different power cord.

Your PS5 may be overheating. Make sure it has enough ventilation and isn't sitting on a fluffy blanket or in a confined space. Clean the air vents to remove any dust buildup.

Check for system updates. Sometimes, outdated firmware can cause random shutdowns. Go to Settings > System > System Software > System Software Update and Settings > Update System Software.

Might be a hardware issue. If the previous suggestions don't work, consider contacting Sony support or visiting an authorized service center. Could be an internal problem that needs professional attention.

If your PS5 is turning off during certain games, it might be a problem with the game itself. Check if others have reported similar issues with that game.
