Hi. ps3 switches off by itself when I play games or watching movies. To turn it back on I need to unplug it first, then switch it back on. It will only play for 20 mins max. Please help

Try this troubleshooting guide. It may be that the internal power supply unit has developed a fault, but its best to see if it's something easier to fix first :)

When it switches off is there a brief yellow light or flashing red light at all?

To add:

 

Does the front light completely switch off, or does one of the above appear? ^^^

If you leave it a few seconds and press power, does the standby light come back on?

Does this turn off happen if you just leave it idle on the XMB for the same period of time?
