If the red light is blinking it means it is overheating.
If your confident its not over heating try this:
1: Turn off your ps3 so that only the red light is on.
2: Press and hold your finger on the ON/OFF button until you hear a beep.
3: Remove your finger quickly and replace your finger again until you hear a tripple beep.
4: Then a screen will apear, all you need to do is restore your factory defualt settings and your done.
(You might want to back-up all your data on the HD before doing this).

Hope this solves your problem for good im almost certain this is your best solution.
please rate my advice. Thanks

I turn the sistem on and abaut 20 minutes it turn

your system is overheating, clean the vents with a vacume so you **** the dust out, dont use a can of air, this will just push the air inside the unit and make matters worse in time. also you can buy intercoolers for the ps3 this would help you from overheating. (the system shuts off to preserve its self)
