My PS4 is randomly turning off, and I have tried everything

Ok, here we go. So I’ve had my PS4 for about two years now, and it’s only started giving me grief recently. Essentially, I can be doing anything, from playing a game to downloading a game, when without any warning whatsoever, the console will turn off. I can immediately turn it on again, with no boot up issues whatsoever (aside from a couple beeps and a message telling me not to suddenly turn the console off). This is where things go weird, because I can play for an hour or two, have the console suddenly turn off, and turn it on again to play for six to seven hours with no troubles whatsoever. I have popped the sucker open and thoroughly cleaned it out with compressed air, I’ve put it in a nice open space with at least a foot of clearance on each side (which, for someone living in a broom closed apartment, was no small feat), I’ve played it with my tiny window open, etc. None of these have worked, and so I figured it might be something with the software. So I backed up my saves to an external hard drive, initialized the system, and then restored it. I was able to play with exactly zero problems for a day, until today, when it turned off again. I tell you, I let out a cry of despair that would win me an Oscar if I was acting. But I wasn’t. And now I have no idea what to do. Do I buy an external fan? If my room is poorly ventilated as a whole, which it kinda is, will an external fan help, or am I just perma-boned? If it’s a software issue, should I not have restored the system with the backed up game files? Do I just throw it at a repair shop and pray they don’t rip me off? Do I just toss the evil thing out the window and blow another $400 on a console that will probably break on me again in about a year? Please help.

I’m almost sure it’s the power supply on it’s way out. It’s a good idea to try another power supply before throwing it away, also these can be sold for parts console repairs stores will buy these for parts.

Make sure to buy correct model power supply. Model can be checked by looking under the power supply after removing it and checking the ADP-2xx number.

I have to know, what leads you to this conclusion? It's just that I don't have a lot of money, and so I'd need to know why I'm buying a new power supply before I do so.

Okay it's probably a good idea to take it to a reputable console repair store that has a no fix no fee policy so that they can try another power supply on it.

Sudden shut off points to the power supply going out. It can also be the board failing so as said above may be better to take it to the experts.

It might be a bad power supply or the cable that plugs into the outlet. Try the cable then the power supply. If neither of those work it’s either a motherboard issue or an issue with the outlet that the cable is plugged into.
